Meet Josh Warner…

Josh joined with his father, Jamie Warner, shortly after our 5:00 AM classes began at the beginning of the year. He picked up on the movements very quickly and since then had been keeping his head down and pushing as hard as he can every single day! Seeing the progress that Josh has made in a short time is truly impressive and we are so proud of him! I mean what other high school student do you know that gets up with their dad in time for a 5:00 AM CrossFit class and then goes to school all day and sticks with it?? It's ok, I'll wait. Make sure to give Josh a big high five for being so devoted and so fun to be around!

As part of being Athlete of the Month, we asked Josh a few questions to get to know him a little more, below are his answers:

 Huntersville

2. What do you do for a living? 
High School Student

3. Favorite hobbies? 
Crossfit, watching movies, hanging out with friends

4. Athletic Background? 
Football, soccer, and basketball

5. Why you chose CrossFit 926?  
I had an injury in football that prevented me from playing contact sports. I joined CrossFit 926 to give me a physical outlet since I couldn't compete in other sports. The staff at CrossFit 926 is committed, patient, and fun.

6. Favorite movement? 
Sandbag over the shoulder 

7. Favorite thing about CrossFit 926? 
I like that it pushes me when I think I can't do something. I'm able to do more than I thought I could.

8. What advice would you give to a new comer? 
Don't come into Crossfit 926 thinking that everyone will be judgmental if you can't do the workout. They will work with you wherever you are to help you get stronger both physically and mentally.
