September Athlete of the Month - Dave Prell

Your story. Who are you? What do you do when you are not here (job,school, etc)? 

I work for CBRE and represent occupiers and investors of industrial real estate.  Occupiers represented include:  Third party logistics companies, packaging, contract manufacturing, plastics, recycling, etc.  Investors represented include:  REITs, pension funds, life insurance companies, family offices, etc.

I have a wonderful wife and daughter.  We love to spend time outside, visit family, travel, and chase around our chocolate lab.

Past athletic history?

I played most sports as a kid, but never played at the collegiate level. 

Why CrossFit? How did you find CrossFit Lake Forest?

Unlike running where you can quickly reach a saturation point in a few months reduced to shaving mere seconds of a personal best time, you can make seismic shifts in CrossFit.  The all-encompassing fitness program is impossible to master and exposes weaknesses in even the best athletes.  The challenge is insurmountable yet satisfying at the same time; marked by perfecting technique, increasing load, competing with classmates, and of course, the clock.

I found CFLF on accident when I was running an errand at Pasquesi's.

What do you love about CrossFit Lake Forest?

The unspoken accountability of regular attendance.

I also appreciate the instructors aren't just giving lip service.  They are in the trenches doing the same programming with you.

Favorite workout? Least favorite?

Favorite:  Anything with cleans, squats, double unders, and rowing

Least Favorite:  Anything with burpees and thrusters

Goals or things you're working on?

Technique on all movements, pull ups, and accelerating my performance on Wods.

One piece of advice about CrossFit, life, anything

Challenge yourself to come up with unique ideas in high barrier to entry markets.  If you succeed, you will be largely insulated from market risk.
