Stu might be the butt of many a man-bun joke around the gym, but I have very few clients that push as hard as he does. I know I could come to the gym with a “Death by Sprints” workout programmed and Stu will still look at it and go, “Ok Coach, let’s get it done!” That kind of attitude makes for some serious progress and a happy coach.

Here’s what Super Stu had to say:

Tell us a little about yourself and what made you try Crossfit?

My name is Stuart and I started at Sammamish Crossift a year ago. Before I started Crossfit, I always went to normal gyms when I played lacrosse, but was never really excited about working out. I started Crossfit when I lived in the Midwest and got hooked pretty easily because it was challenging and competitive .

What is your favorite Crossfit memory? Or best accomplishment so far?

My favorite Crossfit memory is going to the gym everyday and getting my ass kicked with a bunch of like minded people. It’s always fun to see how many people push themselves and how much more you can push yourself.

If you could design your ideal workout, what would it be?

Max set of ab mat sit-ups.

What would you tell someone who wants to try Crossfit but is too intimidated to check it out?

I would tell them to forget what they’ve heard about it. Not everybody that does Crossfit chugs protein powder and has tribal tattoos. Everything is scaled to your fitness level and the coaches are always there to motivate you.
