Meet our May Athlete of the Month - Jeremy Baugh

Your story. Who are you? What do you do when you are not here (job,school, etc)? 
I grew up in the Atlanta area but have lived all over the place: Wisconsin, North Carolina, California, Alaska, Washington. Starting over in new places is getting old. I am a quality control manager for a construction company doing federal contracts. My current projects are at Naval Station Great Lakes. Other things I do and enjoy: cooking, reading, hiking, biking, and playing board games.

Past athletic history?

I played soccer in high school, club rugby in college, and intramural indoor and outdoor soccer in graduate school. For a while after college I was a "runner," running 5-6 miles most days of the week. My longest single distance was 12-13 miles. I started CrossFit in November 2015 but have had several months-long breaks due to moving around.

Why CrossFit?? How did you find CrossFit Lake Forest?
I originally joined CrossFit Kodiak Island to meet people, get exercise in the winter, and because I could see the results in a guy I worked with. I found CFLF online.

What do you love about CrossFit Lake Forest?
The members and coaches are positive and supportive. 

Favorite workout? Least favorite?
I like kettlebell movements, slam balls, rowing, and overhead squats. The assault bike has gotten better. Burpees are tolerable, but I dislike burpee box jumps, burpee box overs, or really burpees combined with anything.

Goals or things your working on?
I'd like to finally get double-unders, string together more TTB, do a HSPU without any mats, improve my engine, and get my weight back down.

One piece of advice about CrossFit, life, anything!
Don't be afraid to go to the dark place. Keep moving.
