CrossFit Oldtown Profile: Chris Wilson

By jerry1 comment

Name: Chris Wilson

Nickname: “Titanium” (the name given to me by Melissa while we were drinking Margaritas at Taqueria Poblano)

Hometown: Columbia, S.C.

When Did you Begin Training at CFOT?
October 2009

What goals have you slayed so far?
With Coach Melissa’s help, I recently hit two of my goals in the same week: my first muscle up and 30 consecutive pullups.

What are your Training Goals for 2011?
New goals: 50 pullups, more muscle ups, clean 165.

What is your prior fitness background?
I was never particularly athletic, though I loved swimming and running — and tried my best to stay in good shape working out a nearby gym. Now I see how little I was challenging myself…the coaches and colleagues at CFOT have made a world of difference to my level of fitness.

Favorite WOD?
Any long, epic WOD — preferably with lots of pullups, like Murph. I like the ones that stretch out toward an hour, the kind that give you an out of body experience.

Least Favorite WOD?
Short, intense WODS that limit my trips to the water fountain.

Favorite CFOT moments you’d like to share?
There are so many: the Halloween WODs with the plastic pumpkins and dice; during the Snowmaggedon last winter when we all jumped into the snowbank just outside the doors of CFOT to cool down after the WOD; partnering with Snoop-a-Loop on Saturday WODs; watching Meginator get her recent pullup PR.

Any advice for our new members?

Turn off the clock, mentally, and just do your best. It’s supposed to be fun, and we’re all here to cheer each other on.

Reason for crushing WOD after WOD?
Overall Fitness

What would you name a WoD and what would it be?

“The Melisscious”"
5 rounds for time:
Run 400 meters
15 deadlifts
30 pullups

After party: 360 degree pullup
