CrossFit Virilis August Member of the Month: CJ Philpott!

How long have you been doing CrossFit?
About one year

What’s your favorite workout?
We did one a while back that was an AMRAP with overhead squats and running and it was my kind of party

What’s your favorite movement?
Overhead Squats

Why do you do CrossFit?
It keeps me motivated to prioritize my fitness, and yields steady progress all around

What meal could you eat every day for the rest of your life?
Pasta of any kind.

What has CFV helped you do, achieve, or overcome?
Overall, Virilis allowed me to keep the momentum I had started with CrossFit almost immediately after a big move to a strange new place. Specifically, I’ve seen vast improvements in my strength, form, and even just in being able to do things I couldn’t do before (double unders, for example).

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be, and why?
Dead: Theodore Roosevelt, because he was an absolute beast. Alive: probably Dua Lipa; would give me a chance to shoot my shot.

What are your top three favorite movies?
Shawshank Redemption
Pulp Fiction
Forest Gump
(That’s such a tough question, but there’s three I thought of on the spot – haha!)

What makes you the happiest?
Being good at something or getting good at something new, being around people I love, making other people happy.

Anything else you want to add?
This is an amazing gym with amazing people, beyond grateful for y’all and thankful I have plenty of time left!! I bear this badge with pride, Virilis forever!
