Congratulations to Brooke Martin who is May’s Hyper CrossFIT Athlete of the Month. It’s not winning the Super Bowl LII or Cardio challenges at our fitness center that keeps Brooke motivated. It’s what she has gained in the form of an extended family, personal fitness results and the many accomplishments that keeps her coming back to the box.

What do you do to pay your bills?  School, emergency, and trauma Nurse

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box?  I learned about CrossFit through a former member and primarily my father, Darren Martin.

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFIT Athlete)?  I like my 5:30 AM crew, the push to start my day off right, and the results that I have seen and changes I have seen in myself.

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started?  My proudest accomplishment is probably being able to get up the rope and not just once but multiple times now. 🙂

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit.  I go on a cruise outside the country at least once a year.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? One of my favorite WODs is probably the one that we did with all of the presidents recently. It was challenging, but fun!

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be?  BMart Special – I would include a rope climb, bear crawls, burpees, GHD machine, and snatches…Like a mix of different movements to work the body and maybe even some sprints like a 200 or 400 meter.

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit? Exactly what our motto is, “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.” You may not be able to do everything and especially not RX, but if you stick with it and really work hard the change will be evident not only in how you look but how you feel.

Any additional comments you would like to share? I love CrossFit and our coaches are the best! They are very intuitive to all of us. They take the time to get to know us and have fun!

What do you do to pay your bills? Regional Manager for Hyundai Capital

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box? I tried every sport you can think of and sucked in all of them. I even tried weightlifting, spent hours and hours at the gym, but that didn’t work either. I heard about CrossFit from a friend when I lived in Albany, NY a few years back. He told me that it would help me stay in shape, keep me healthy and most importantly, I didn’t have to be at the gym all day doing it. I Googled all CrossFit locations around me, tried a class at a few boxes, but didn’t feel like they were the right fit for me.  Next on the list was Hyper CrossFIT.  When I arrived, I was welcomed by Yolanda.  She talked to me about the classes and showed me around.  I was so excited that I signed up for the Element course right there and then and the rest is history!

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFit Athlete)? It feels like we are one big family. I enjoy working out with our team of fantastic and friendly people who care about each other. We have great, encouraging coaches and with my knees being an issue, I never feel that any of them are being bothered by modifying or changing a movement for me. I also, like when the experienced athletes help me correct my stance or form. I always feel positive vibes at Hyper CrossFIT from everyone!

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started?  When I did my first rope climb!

What are you still working on to achieve? Plenty (10 consecutive strict pull ups, double unders, muscle up, HSPU, handstand walk, finish Murph around 40-45 min with no modification and to be able to lift more weight) you want more, lol?

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit. My first job was a busboy at Tiffany Diner in Philadelphia.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? I love HERO and chipper WOD’s. I also like “Athlete of the month” WODs. I push a little harder, so I won’t disappoint the athlete, but Murph for sure is my number one WOD.

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be? I would name it “Chip like an Egyptian”
For time
– 200 m Run
– 90 DU
– 80 Air Squats
– 70 Box Step ups
– 200 m Run
– 60 Abmat sit ups
– 50 RKBS (55/35/20)
– 40 Mt Climbers (L+R = 2)
– 200 m Run
– 30 HRPU
– 20 Power Cleans (95/65/45)
– 10 Deadlifts (135/95/65)
– 200 m run

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit? Don’t be intimidated at all, because every movement can be modified to suit your level of strength and mobility and all it’ll take is 3 classes and you are hooked.

Any additional comments you would like to share? I never thought that  I would ever get this honor, so THANK YOU.  I want to thank all the coaches and every member of our box for being supportive and always there to cheer me on, encourage me to push harder and help me to be better every day.

What do you do to pay your bills? Network Architect

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box? A few years ago a friend of mine suggested we give Crossfit a try in order to get fit and many failed attempts at a normal gym. I was hooked after that first week of soreness. From that moment I became hooked and wanted to be a better me and continually try to defeat my preconceived limitations of what I can physically and mentally accomplish.

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFit Athlete)? I like being in class with my fellow athletes and the coaches. The environment here encourages perseverance and trying harder then you did yesterday. I always feel mentally stronger after leaving class.

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started? My proudest moment is getting dressed for an event and realizing some of my pants that fit me last year are actually bigger and looser now.

What are you still working on to achieve? Overhead Squats, 10 strict pull-ups, more endurance.

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit. I talk to my dogs like they are educated individuals.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? “FRAN” is my favorite

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be?

 I would call my WOD “Lucky number 7”
Cash in: 250 m Row
5 Rounds
7 Pull ups
7 Thrusters
7 KB swings
7 Burpees
Cash out: 250 m Row

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit? If you’re thinking about CrossFit I would suggest just trying it for 30 days out of your life. There are no unrealistic requirements and everyone is friendly and encouraging. We all have to begin somewhere in our fitness journey. CrossFit offers you a path on that journey. You’re only opponent is you.

Any additional comments you would like to share?  I love the atmosphere at Hyper CrossFIT and no matter what type of athlete you are or at what level you’re at there is something for you here.

What do you do to pay your bills? Director of Operations

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box?  A friend recommended CrossFit as a way to get in shape. I was intimidated to try it, as I was very out of shape when I started. I finally got up the nerve to try it out so I searched the internet for local boxes. When I came to Hyper CrossFIT everyone was so friendly and encouraging I knew this was the place for me. The workouts can be intimidating, but it is so comforting to know that everyone cheers for each other.

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFIT Athlete)? I love that I see improvement little by little every day. I also love how warm and welcoming everyone is. On several occasions I’ve even had other crossfitters come back to finish the WOD with me so I would finish strong. That is amazing!

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started? When I started I couldn’t even run across the street and back. When I did “Murph” in May I was able to run the entire first mile without stopping. That was HUGE for me. I’m still a slow runner but I can usually complete all of the running in the WODs.

What are you still working on to achieve?  Plenty! I would love to get double unders and an unassisted pull up. And maybe run an entire 5K next year 🙂

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit.  I lived in Japan for 5 years in my early 20’s.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark?   I remember doing “Zeus ” and it was brutal, but I felt pretty good after I finished it 🙂

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be? 

“The Wonder Woman”
I like AMRAPs because everyone finishes at the same time 🙂
18min -20 min is good
I would include:
200m Row
Ground to Overhead
Overhead Squat (superset them)
Situps
Ring Rows
Slam Balls
Knees to Elbows

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit?  There really is a modification for everything! You do NOT have to be in shape to start it.

Any additional comments you would like to share?  I am humbled by this honor. I have been able to do so many active things this year because of Crossfit. I love the people and the encouragement. 2017 was a much happier and healthier year for me and I know that is is in large part due to Crossfit.

What do you do to pay your bills? Hospital Management

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box?  I would have to say I learned about CrossFit by trying. I saw a sign, was curious and came in for a trial for the New Year’s WOD. I did not know much about it prior to coming into our Box. I saw great people challenging each other to do a great workout. The combination brought me back.

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFit Athlete)?  There are so many differing and varying athletes with unique strengths and diverse athletic backgrounds. They are coming together to challenge themselves to get stronger through CrossFit. Everyone learns from everyone’s strengths. This helps everyone move forward in their individual training.

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started? Getting a Strict Bar Muscle up.

What are you still working on to achieve?  Getting more efficient in everything whether it be better technique, increasing strength or mobility, or balancing an asymmetry for a particular movement. This is especially true for the Olympic lifts as I had no experience in them prior to CrossFit.

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit. I spent a couple of years living connected to a traditional Japanese martial arts dojo. The traditional lessons in technique, movement and philosophy that I learned from an extraordinary Japanese Sensei still influence me today.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? Murph definitely.

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be? Tough one. I like going hard for challenge, fast, and then having some fun. It would be some variation of the Litvinov training protocol popularized by Dan John- a heavy lift that your have good technicals on and can go hard. An example might be the deadlift (75-85% max) for eight reps or high volume kettlebell swings. This is followed by a 400m fast sprint or 30 yard uphill sprints. You go for a total of three rounds. Sprints should be all out and you should be gasping for air. This would be followed by some work on the gymnastics movements just because I find these fun- a kind of training reward for the previous hard work out. I guess then the name would be HFF. Hard, Fast and then some fun!

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit? Its your training. Don’t get overly caught up in what the person next to you is doing or your score on the board. Be humble, don’t worry, and have fun. Everyone struggles with some movement. You will move forward with time and training. Ask a lot of questions. The coaches are great pointing you the right direction you need. Finally, on movements with which you are struggling, go slower and focus on underlying strength, mobility, and technique. Speed will come and you will be smoking the workouts in no time.

Any additional comments you would like to share? Thanks to everyone’s support in helping me get better!

What do you do to pay your bills? Registered Nurse

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box?  Like so many others I developed an interest in CrossFit after seeing friends join and watching The CrossFit Games. Before CrossFit I would exercise at home. I have done every Beachbody program imaginable but over time those programs would get tedious, I would barely make it through a program before getting bored and moving onto the next. I was plateauing and not seeing any improvement. It took me about a good year before I developed the courage to join CrossFit. After searching online for a box I found Hyper CrossFIT, I took their free trial class and the rest was history!

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFit Athlete)?  The people! The camaraderie in this box is amazing! Honestly, I’m not sure there are words that could describe how amazing the FIT members are! Being a military spouse and having no family in the area can be really hard. It isn’t easy moving from place to place and meeting people but Hyper has helped me feel more at home. Everyone was so welcoming from the moment I stepped into this box. I couldn’t be more thankful for all of them!

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started?  Getting an Overhead squat! It was probably the hardest movement for me! But in all seriousness my proudest moments is just watching myself become stronger and continuing to improve my form. I thought I was in pretty good shape before I started CrossFit but I was wrong.. way wrong!

What are you still working on to achieve? Snatches., snatches and more snatches… I swear, Coach Bill, one of these days I will get it! No matter how many times you may tell me, I will eventually get it!

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit.  I love Marine Biology! If I hadn’t become a nurse I would have pursued a career in marine biology. The ocean is my happy place!

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? Gosh, there are so many out there, not sure I have a favorite WOD or benchmark yet but I do enjoy a good chipper!

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be? I would name the WOD.. “OH. MY. GOD. Becky… Look at that WOD!” Because well, everyone knows that song. I love longer WODs, especially chippers. One of my favorite complex movements is the Bear Complex so I’d probably incorporate that into the chipper somehow. Maybe go something like this..

5 Bear Complex
10 Burpees
20 T2B
30 yard OH Plate walking lunges
40 Alternating DB Snatches
50 DU
5 Bear Complex
50 Kettlebell Swings
40 HRPU
30 yard OH Plate walking lunges
20 Pull ups
10 Wall Balls
5 Bear Complex

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit? Don’t wait like I did! If you have any interest in Crossfit come out and try a class! It doesn’t matter what shape you are in or how old you are, nothing matters because there is always a scalable option. The coaches here are amazing and will help you every step of the way. The camaraderie among everyone is amazing. You won’t be disappointed! Give it a try!

What do you do to pay your bills?  Attorney

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box?  I had read about Crossfit online and began doing some workouts from the Crossfit site at the gym. I did the Elements classes from a Groupon ad at the Willingboro location, but at the time I couldn’t get the class times to work. After retiring from the police department I had a more flexible schedule and joined the Burlington location.

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFit Athlete)?  I enjoy the people. Everyone is so friendly. You get to know everyone and get concerned when they aren’t there. It was nice doing a competition and have some of the members show up to cheer you on.

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started?  Handstand push ups. It took me a long time to be able to get upside down.

What are you still working on to achieve? Muscle ups. Just one please.

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit. I play bagpipes with the Camden County Emerald Society Pipes and Drums. Our mission is to honor those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark?  I like the Isabel or Grace, because they are just lifting. I have to be careful. Because of my knees, many movements are painful.

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be? Call it “I Plead Not Guilty.” I like AMRAPS. Something with a row buy in and then deadlifts, box jumps and kettlebell swings.

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit?  When I talk to people about Crossfit they say they can’t because of certain physical limitations. I tell them that there is always a way to modify the exercise to accommodate the limitation. Jump right in, the water’s fine.

What do you do to pay your bills? Science Teacher

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box? I really became interested in CrossFit after watching a documentary on Netflix. However, I never thought I’d ever be able to try those workouts that seemed so demanding, because I had trouble with my knee after having ACL surgery. Eventually, I decided to find out more, so I began to look for boxes nearby. Hyper CrossFIT stood out above the rest, because of the emphasis on modifying workouts to keep members injury-free. I thought that was the perfect philosophy for someone like me coming back from a serious injury…and I was right!

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFit Athlete)? The first thing I noticed at Hyper was how friendly and welcoming everyone was, coaches and athletes. I felt comfortable right away, and a year later, the gym feels like home. I especially love how the coaches don’t hesitate to jump right in and workout right beside you. I never have to workout alone.

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started? Since I hurt my knee, I’ve struggled to get back into shape and to feel like myself again. I would rush into working out, overdue it, and get hurt again. It was a never-ending cycle. Since joining Hyper, I’m most proud of how I approached returning to exercise–being patient, modifying movements, and taking care of my body. That accomplishment is very meaningful to me. And I have my coaches to thank for that, as well.

What are you still working on to achieve? I want to be as strong as Coach Kim! I don’t think that’s possible though, so I’ll settle for getting handstand walks and muscle-ups.

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit.  I have six fake teeth.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? So far, I think my favorite is DT. Murph was a memorable one, too. But I haven’t been CrossFitting that long, so there are a lot that I haven’t tried yet.

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be? That’s a hard question. I like long workouts, so maybe a long AMRAP. It would probably include running, squat cleans, pull-ups, double unders, and burpees. I would name it “The Best Part of Waking Up” (my last name is Folger).

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit?  ANYONE can do it! You just need to be willing to try. Hyper is the perfect place to start, because the coaches are willing to modify any workout to meet your needs and make sure you stay healthy enough to come back again and again. And once you start, you won’t want to stop!

Any additional comments you would like to share? Thank you to the Hyper coaches for their support and to the Hyper members for welcoming me with open arms!

What do you do to pay your bills? Physician

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box?  Like many other CrossFit athletes, I had been part of a traditional gym or worked out on my own. After sometime, the motivation to do a work out independently begins to wane. I knew some type of group class would keep me motivated, but I couldn’t find anything that really interested me.
In 2014 a good friend of mine joined CrossFit and soon after he urged me. For various reasons, I couldn’t do it. (Looking back at it, those were of excuses!) In late 2015, I heard about Hyper CrossFIT and its proximity to my office. After about a month or so of putting it off, I walked into Hyper, met Yolanda and told her that I wanted to join. She offered me an intro class, which I declined and signed up on the spot. It’s the best decision I made.

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFIT Athlete)? I was drawn in by the workouts, but I keep coming back, because of the other members! I’m sure the WODs at all CrossFit boxes are great, but I really enjoy the camaraderie that we have at Hyper. This is the first time I’ve ever become friends with people at the gym. Whether you’re doing the Rx workout or a scaled version everyone is so supportive and cheering you on to keep pushing. Coming to Hyper is what I do to de-stress from the day. Everyone at Hyper is here to get a good a workout and have fun at the same time. It’s the best combination and environment to achieve fitness goals.

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started?  This has to be when I nailed my first double-under and then hit a few in a row! I took a victory lap inside the Box. Everyone was laughing at me, but I was really that excited that I achieved something that eluded me for so long. Now if I could just do them consistently…

What are you still working on to achieve?  Honestly, a little bit of everything! I would like to be able to do any 21-15-9 WOD completely unbroken with my only rest being between exercises/movements.

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit.  I love to travel and I try to go somewhere every chance I get. I have been fortunate to travel over 35 states and 30 countries. I would like to make it Australia, Indonesia, and South Africa someday.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? There is no WOD that is my favorite during the actual workout. They’re all equally brutal. With that said, I really enjoyed “Death by Thrusters” and of course all of the “Athlete of the Month” WODs. I think I push myself a little more than usual during those workouts, because I don’t want to disappoint the featured athlete.

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be?  The WOD would be called “Doctor’s Orders” and it would be either Rounds For Time or a chipper. There would be sled pull/push, squat cleans, wall ball shots, box jumps, hand stand push-ups, and maybe cash out with some wind sprints. Is that too much for one workout?

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit?  If you’ve decided that you are interested in CrossFit then you’ve taken the hardest step. Don’t believe what you see on television. You don’t have to have a certain level of fitness to start. Everything will be modified based on your current abilities. CrossFit is nothing more than doing a boatload of squats while lifting weights, throw in some jumping and running and do it all at max effort. In all seriousness though, if you want to try, it will only take one hour of your time. For as much as we do for others daily, one hour to look after yourself is not a huge commitment. You’ll walk away feeling better about yourself and enriched by the people you’ve met. Be careful though, it’s addicting!

Garrett Kern

Garrett Kern is May’s Athlete of the Month.  Learn more about why we have chosen this full time Drexel student and Burlington CrossFit lovin’ native as this month’s Hyper CrossFIT athlete.

Hometown: Burlington, NJ

What do you do to pay your bills? I’m a full time civil engineering student at Drexel University and work part time as an assistant project engineer for J Fletcher Creamer.

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box? Through high school I was very active in weight lifting and training in general. I lost the “bug” when I got to college and just couldn’t find the motivation to go and lift by myself every day. I had heard of CrossFit through a few of my friends at college. I actually plowed the snow at Hyper one winter so it was the first place to come to mind. I got in contact with Yolanda to get signed up for the elements course and the community atmosphere has made me never look back.

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFit Athlete)? The people. The coaches are awesome and will talk about anything with you whether fitness related or not. The other athletes are always pushing everyone to go as far as they can go.

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started? It’s hard to decide between two. The Clean and Jerk has always been my favorite Olympic lifting movement so I was really happy when I finally hit 4 plates (225 lbs) for that.  Open workout 17.2 was also a huge accomplishment for me. I was just getting to the point that I was able to do a muscle up and when that workout rolled around I was able to finish a whole round of 16 of them.

What are you still working on to achieve? My goals are endless. Every time I break one of my PR’s I set another. Some are:  Clean and Jerk: 250 lbs/Deadlift: 405 lbs/Back Squat: 315 lbs

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit.  I love being outdoors. Anything from skiing and hunting in the winter to boating and fishing in the summer.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? I’d have to go with either Zeus or Murph. I love any of the HERO WODs that are longer then 30 or 45 minutes where they put you on your back at the end gasping for air. It really makes me feel like I have done something that day.

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be? 

It’s time to Chipper down and Squat Clean and Jerk!

1 mile run
90 DU
5 Squat Clean and Jerk (135/95/65)
80 Box Step Ups (24/20)
70 Abmat Sit Ups
5 Squat Clean and Jerk
60 Push ups
50 T2B
5 Squat Clean and Jerk
40 Alternating Pistols
30 Deadifts (135)
5 Clean and Jerk
200 m Farmer carry (70/55)
10 Bar Muscle Ups
5 Clean and Jerk
5 Rope Climbs
1RM Max Clean and Jerk

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit? Come to a class and try it out before you make a judgement on it. I have developed a love for CrossFit over the past year that I never would have expected.
