Each month, we will profile a Grand Trunk CrossFit member who has seen incredible results since joining our “box”.
It is our hope, that by showing you what can be accomplished through regular workouts and a commitment to fitness, you will be encouraged to take the leap and come in for a workout.
This month’s spotlight is on Bryan Johnston, a member since February 2015
When did you join Grand Trunk, and why?
Bryan: Powerhouse workouts were just not getting me what I was trying to accomplish: muscular strength, endurance, and overall better physical performance.
What do you enjoy most about GTCF and CrossFit?
CrossFit exposes your every weakness. There is always something that needs work.
What is your favorite movement?
Thrusters, cleans and bench presses.
What is a CrossFit goal you have achieved that you are most proud of?
There isn’t one specific thing I’m most proud of…just learning the techniques and getting them down was a huge success. Also, double-unders and muscle-ups. Now I’m working on getting my butterfly pull-ups…
What is a current goal you are working on and hope to accomplish?
Continue to improve my cardio conditioning as well as butterfly pull-ups.
What advice would you give a new member or someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit?
Check your ego at the door. Trust the process and put in the extra work.
How has CrossFit impacted your life outside of the gym?
CrossFit gives me confidence to do my job and handle difficult situations at work.
What is a fun fact that people might not know about you?
I used to race District 14 Motocross and raced in the Pontiac Silverdome. I also snowboard out West and heli board. I have one million safe miles driving tractor-trailers before my career in law enforcement.
If you could create your own WOD, what would it be?
100 reps of body weight bench press for me…just kidding. Probably box jump over, calorie Assault bike, thrusters and push-ups. Yeah, that sounds about right.
Fill in the blank: I CrossFIt (because/so I can): Possibly save your life if it ever comes to that. Also to protect my family and brothers in blue at all costs.
