Member Profile: Travis

I asked Travis to tell us a little bit about himself for a new series of Member Profiles. He's a great dude, and strong athlete. Here's what he had to say:

"I have been in the Army Reserves as a Combat Medic for 6 yrs, and a firefighter for 4. I was deployed April of 2008. While overseas I was introduced to CrossFit from some Marines that came through our camp. Immediately I was hooked.

I would spend what ever time I had researching, finding out as much as I could about CrossFit. When I returned home I was recommended to GSX while at Luke's while buying new running shoes. I signed up the next day.

As far as my fitness background I really don't have one. I consider the day I found CrossFit as the start of my fitness and lifestyle change. I don't know where I would be physically and mentally if it wasn't for CrossFit and the GSX family. I see CrossFit cert's, competing in the games in my future , plus many many healthy years."

How can you not like someone that kicks your ass 99% of the time?! Travis is just an all around great person, if you haven't met him or been in class with him you should make an effort to.

Ransom is an awesome dude on every level. He's always giving it all that he has. The classes that he's in are better because of him, his intensity and effort is contagious.

Travis is definitely someone who understands "intensity." He is someone I would always want and trust to be on my side of any situation. Great guy!!

More than a shirtless piece of meat...yep...great person. And he's handy to have around in the event your own arm likes to eject from your body.
