Please join the coaching staff in congratulating Mike Renner! He is February's Athlete of the Month. Mike has been training with us for a while now, and continues to make progress month after month. Mike is great at knowing when to RX+ a WOD and when to scale it. His strength and form are always improving, and one of these days we're gong to get his arms totally straight on pull-ups! As a masters athlete, Mike often bests other athletes nearly half his age! Keep it up Mike, your great attitude, demeanor and hard work don't go unnoticed!

 

Q. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.

A.  I Live in West Islip.  I own "Quality Moving & Storage" in Hicksville.  Besides Crossfit  I like to play beach volleyball in the summer and snowboard/ski in the winter.

Q. HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH CROSSFIT AND AT CROSSFIT COBALT?

A.  My brother Rich got me started in crossfit.  He knew I was looking for something different than just a regular gym. He suggested we check this thing out called "Crossfit".  He thought it might be something I would like.  He was absolutely right.  That was about 4 Years ago, right here at Cobalt. 

Q. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF CROSSFIT?

A. I have to say my favorite part of Crossfit is that every workout is different, and that it covers a wide range of things in the workouts.  Also, friendly competition pushes you a little bit more than if you were working out on your own.


Q. TELL US YOUR MOST MEMORABLE WOD AND WHY…

A. I don't think it was a named WOD.  It was about 2 years ago.  The WOD was 4 rounds of 4 muscle ups, kettle bell swings, push ups,  run 400.  The reason why this is my most memorable WOD is because it was the first time I was able to do muscle ups in a WOD.  I got 13 out of the 16.  It was something I had never done before crossfit, and I never thought I would be able to do it, especially in a WOD with so many muscle ups.


Q. WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE PLANS AND GOALS?

A. I'm working on my kipping for toes to bar and pull ups, and being able to string together muscle ups.  My main goal is to stay in shape through my fifties and well beyond.


Q. IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE WORKOUT NAMED AFTER YOU WHAT WOULD IT BE?

A.  My WOD would be made up of 4 rounds with 5 things to do:  4 muscle Ups,  20 Push Ups, 2 legless rope climbs, run 400, 30 sit ups.  Hopefully, I get all 16 of the muscle ups this time!
