CrossFit Virilis Member of the Month: Mike Stinson

Mike Stinson is our amazing CFV member of the month! Get to know all about him here.

1. How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I have been doing CrossFit for about a year and a half.

2. What’s your favorite workout?
Favorite workout would be anytime we get to lift heavy or try and set new PRs.

3. What’s your favorite movement?
Hhhhmmmm favorite movement is a tough one either back squat or deadlift would have to be my favorite.

4. Why do you do CrossFit?
I do CrossFit to remain active, especially in the time of COVID. I used to play lots of sports when I was younger, but that went away with adult responsibilities. So, I use CrossFit to get back into shape and lose weight and not be completely sedentary.

5. What meal could you eat every day for the rest of your life?
I could eat a cheeseburger every single day and never get bored of it.

6. What has CFV helped you do, achieve, overcome, etc?
CrossFit Virilis has helped me to push past limits I would have previously thought that I had. It has helped me to become stronger and more motivated to continue working out and striving for that next achievement.

7. If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be, and why?
Dang, another tough question. If the language barrier was somehow overcome, I think it would have to be someone like Socrates. In his time, he was a genius and also someone who believed in being physically fit. I think he would be able to impart some great life advice over lunch.

8. What are your top three favorite movies? 
Hackers, The Fifth Element, and I’m not sure what the third one would be. There are so many great ones out there that I can’t really decide on a third.

9 What makes you the happiest?
Relaxing at home with my family or traveling and getting away for a bit.

10. Anything else you want to add about CFV, CrossFit, or yourself?
I love the family nature that CFV has. It is one of the brightest points about working out with everyone. It is awesome that everyone is so encouraging to each other and no one ever hesitates to help someone else out.
