February 2014 Athlete of the Month – John Chisolm

Congratulations to John Chisolm for being selected as our February 2014 Athlete of the Month!  John has showed incredible dedication over the past few months and has really come a long ways since his first day in the gym. His lifts have gone up significantly and endurance is much improved since starting at the gym.  Here’s a little bit about John along with his story:

Name: John Chisholm

Started CrossFit: April 2012

Favorite WOD: I like the ones with a lot of varied movements

Least Favorite WOD: Any with wall ball shots (they’re just evil)

Favorite Lift: Snatch

Least Favorite Lift: Overhead Squat

Story:   Things had gotten completely out of control!

Somehow I found myself weighing more than I ever had in my life.  I crossed a line I never thought I would see, much less blow through. My health was noticeably deteriorating and I was struggling to actively play with my kids.  I had tried to be a runner but just could not get hooked. I had to find a way to take back my life. I saw y’all working out at the first location by Lincoln Heights and was intrigued. Talked to a few folks and read a lot about Crossfit. I wanted to try it. My wife insisted I get a physical and permission from my doctor first. I told my doctor what I wanted to do and he said Crossfit has going to “kick my butt”. Little did I know how right he was. Participated in the first class and just felt this was for me. It was challenging, intense and a little bit fun. The coaches and people where so helpful, I was hooked. The first year I lost a substantial amount of weight, improved my diet and increase my ability to move.  I could actively participate in sports with my kids like never before. They are proud of my accomplishments.  Working out here at Mission Crossfit SA has been a huge improvement in my life. The atmosphere and support from all is tremendous.
