CFBF Athlete of the Month (August) – Dave Mercier

What’s Your Athletic/Fitness Background?   

Reasonably unathletic after a couple years post-college, which is more than 25 years ago. Lots of golf, but have gone to chain gyms off and on over the years.

Why Did You Join CFBF?

Midlife crisis number two. Or 3/4 life crisis. I’m turning 50 this year and have been an insulin dependent diabetic for 17 years. Weight was up. Sugar was up. Decided that I need to do something about both. Dropped in and talked with Coach Chris. The environment is great! The coaching is tailored to beginners like me or athletes that are in fabulous shape. The encouragement and the early results keep me coming back.

Most Memorable WOD?

A few weeks ago with rowing machine—I was pretty certain I was going to puke when we were done. Wouldn’t have thought that the rowers were that tough.

Favorite CrossFit Movement? 

Not sure I have one (yet). I am seeing that I can do more—higher box on box jumps, more weight with squats, etc. I’m happy to be able to do most of the movements.

Biggest Challenge? 

Overhead movements are tough for me with a shoulder issue. Chris has been great with extra work I can do to help strengthen my upper body and my shoulder is slowly getting better.

Biggest Improvement?    

Endurance is much better. I feel better! I’m encouraged with progress and it allows me to get up super early for my hour plus drive to the gym.

Who is Your Superhero?

Coach Chris.  Anyone that can/will run around the parking lot with no shoes is super.

Fun Fact about Yourself?

I caught a pass from Drew Bledsoe. I went to a parenting seminar put on by his foundation a long time ago. I won the last prize given out and he reluctantly threw me a pass in a ballroom at a large hotel.  I could see that he envisioned me not catching the pass and knocking someone’s teeth out. The pass was at my chest so the only downside for him was me losing my breath if I missed it, but I didn’t.

What Most Special About CFBF?

I feel welcomed.  I was out of shape. Felt older than what I am, but was accepted from the beginning.  I like that the exercises are scalable and allow me to participate at my level. I’m happy to see that my level is increasing, even if at a measured pace.

Any Advice for New Members?

Take the coaching. Try things that you don’t think you can do. Be humble enough to understand what you can’t do and give yourself a goal to do more. Show up!
