Congratulations to Rob Bard for being CrossFit Relentless’s February Member of the Month! He is a loyal member of the 5pm class, and is super pumped about recently achieving his first bar muscle-up!
1) What are your hobbies/interest/talents outside of CrossFit?
I like to spend time with friends and family, but I also really like to travel when I am able to.
2) Share with us one thing that most people do NOT know about you?
My friends and I brew beer a couple times a year. We have been doing it for over 4 years.
3) How long have you been with us at CFR?
I have been a member of CFR since December of 2017.
4) Take us back to your first week here. How did you feel? Remember the workout?
I was really nervous when I first started, but also really excited to find out what CrossFit actually was. One of the first workouts I did was Karen because the gym was in the middle of the “12 Pains of Christmas.” Editor’s note: This was after Rob completed our 2-week on-ramp program that was implemented at the time.
5) What moment/achievement are you most proud of at CFR?
My most proud moment at CFR was getting my first bar muscle-up thanks to the great coaching of Rick Wells.
6) Design your perfect workout?
A perfect workout for me would be bench press for the strength portion and then an AMRAP involving pull ups, ring dips, and box jumps.
7) What is your least favorite movement?
My least favorite movement right now is double unders because I am still struggling to get the timing down and I am unable to do them consistently.
8) Summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less.
Constantly trying to be better.
9) Have you experienced any changes in your lifestyle now that you have been a CrossFit athlete?
Since I have joined CrossFit I have made conscious efforts to improve my diet and maintain consistency with training.
10) What advice do you have for anyone who is thinking about joining or who has recently joined?
My advice to anyone thinking about joining or who has recently joined is to stick with it. It can be frustrating when you struggle with a movement or feel you aren’t doing as well as you think you should be, but keep at it and have fun because it is so worth it.
