November Member of the Month – Trenton O.

Name
Trenton Owens

Occupation
Financial analyst

When did you start CF?
October 2018

What are your favorite numbers and why?
I don’t really have any but know where this is going…11 and 18? I guess bc that’s my birthday month and day.

What CF movements do you like?
HPC, Jumping PUs, KB swing, rowing, situps

What CF movements do you dislike?
Wall balls, thrusters and snatch

What sports or fitness things did you do before CF?
Running and HIIT workouts of my own design.

How did you find CF? What was your first workout?
A friend from work took me to a bring-a-friend day at a CF gym in the city, probably 9 months prior to joining Kanna. All I remember from that particular workout was partner tug-of-war.

What’s your favorite thing about CrossFit?
CF is a great workout but you can get that at a variety of other gyms, CF or not, but you often have to tailor yourself to whatever the workout model is. At Kanna, however, the atmosphere is small and personable enough for the staff to tailor things to your fitness level and needs. With their functional fitness/fit-for-life mindset, the result feels less like a monthly membership payment but rather an investment into your personal wellbeing.

What are your hobbies?
When the kids allow any, occasional hiking, biking and video games

What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I spent about 8 years as an avid Boy Scout and attained Eagle Scout.

What PRs or accomplishments are you most proud of?
Hitting Blue 1 on aerobic power intervals, that was tough

What’s on your CF bucket list?
Kipping pull-ups

What’s on your general bucket list?
Something adventurous, maybe a Seven Summits ascent

What advice do you have for new (or experienced!) CrossFitters?
What’s a little discomfort for a short amount of time. You’ll move on from a workout and it will make you more resilient in the long run bit by bit.

Anything else you’d like to mention?
Don’t think so. Thanks for the opportunity

***Kanna members: Trenton’s custom workout will be TBD (obviously)***

How does one become Member of the Month? By embodying the Kanna ideals of Learning, Working Hard, and Having Fun. By contributing to the community and supporting others in and out of the workout. By being open to coaching and improving oneself for the sake of being better, not to “win” the workout. By just generally being a good person and having a positive attitude. And a lot more, but you get the idea!
