CrossFit Fixx Member Highlight – Dan Garles!!

We asked Fixx athlete, Dan Garles, a few questions about his CrossFit journey…

What brought you to CrossFit in the first place? 

“I used to do regular gym workouts and run a lot.  I was getting pretty burned out on coming up with my own workouts and had started looking at  Around that same time my daughter started competitive cheer, and there was a CrossFit gym next door.  Since I was next door everyday I thought I would checkout the gym.  I dropped in for a week and loved it, and have been doing CrossFit pretty much every day since.”

What was your first impression? How has that changed? 

“It was difficult and still is!  I love that aspect though, having to push yourself every time you’re in the gym.”

What was your first “bright spot”? (Positive moment) 

“I had actually done a lot of Olympic lifting, but very little gymnastic work.  I could do like 2 strict pull-ups when I started 2 years ago.  Stringing together a bunch of kipping pull-ups after a couple of months was awesome.” 

What are you working on now? 

“Everything!  But I am focused on butterfly pull-ups to get my Fran time down.  I would also like to get my back squat to 400 lbs.  That was a goal I had before Covid and was getting pretty close before taking 4 months away from the gym.”

What is your favorite FIXX memory? 

“Doing my first Murph with my 10 year old daughter Natalie.”  

Do you have a favorite movement? Favorite WOD? 

“Anything rowing or wall balls!”
