Mike Tees

Mike Tees is our new CrossFit Athlete of the Month for January to grace the new year.  Learn more about Mike, the sports fan, downhill skiing addict, financial advisor, and the Hyper CrossFit athlete we are very proud of.  Read on…

Hometown: Burlington, NJ

What do you do to pay your bills? Financial Advisor 

How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box?  I had a few coworkers that were CrossFit athletes.  They would tell me how much they loved working out and going to their box everyday.  My first thought was “Now I cannot understand why these CrossFit guys always workout and that they are a bunch of nuts.  No one can actually ‘love’ working out”….So, I started researching local boxes, because working out at my local gym was becoming extremely BORING. (There were only so many miles I could run on a treadmill and I was not a fan of waiting 20 minutes for a bench to open up.)  What initially drew us to Hyper was that the Box was close to home, the facility looked awesome, and having the open gym was an added bonus.  After a few conversations and negotiations with Yolanda, we were scheduled for our (with my wife, Rachel) Elements Class.

What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFit Athlete)?  The people, both athletes and coaches.  The positive attitude everyone brings to the gym is what keeps us coming back.  The athletes are always helping you to get that extra rep, motivating you through the WODs, and motivating you through that Max Lift.  The coaches are always helping with encouraging words like “Get your head through!” and “Knees out!”. What I like most about Hyper CrossFit is the sense of community, the new friends I’ve made, and knowing that each day I’m going to spend an hour having fun with a group of great people. (That goes for you too, 5:30 AM)

What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started?  DOUBLE UNDERS!  After a whole year of getting twisted up in my rope and slapping myself in the shins and back of my neck, I have linked over 100 together.  Figuring out these pesky double unders shaved 15 minutes off my Annie time.

What are you still working on to achieve?  At the top of my “Next Achievements” list are Butterfly Pull-ups, Muscle-ups, and Handstand Walks. My other short term goals include a 175 lb. Snatch, 400 lb. Deadlift, 300 lb. Back Squat, and a 6 minute Fran. I could continue listing items here, but it will begin to look like a child’s Christmas list.

Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit.  I am a huge fan of outdoor activities like running, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking and most of all skiing.  I’ve skied in Colorado, Utah, California, Montana, Wyoming, British Columbia and all over New England.  I am a fan of pretty much all sports (except Cricket and that’s because I have no clue what those guys are doing on that field).  My rooting interests are with the Philadelphia sports teams.  Lastly, I play Right Wing on a street hockey team and I’m a novice golfer.

What is your favorite WOD or benchmark?  Helen has to be on the top of the list.  Who doesn’t love running, kettle bell swings, and pull-ups? I am also a huge fan of the longer WODs that last 30+ minutes and involve a wide range of movements, like Zeus.

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be?  “Tees Me, Please Me.”  It goes like this:

Buy In/Cash Out: 150 Double Unders
*One V-Up for each broken Double Under to be completed before Bear Crawl.
2 Rounds of:
• 30 yd. Bear Crawl
• 25 Front Squats (95/65)
• 20 Ring Dips
• 15 Ground to Overhead
• 10 Toes to Bar
• 5 Rope Climbs

What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit?  The first time I walked into Hyper for my first Elements Class and I saw the athletes working through a grueling WOD, I turned to my wife and said “Is this what we signed up for?”  I was definitely intimidated, especially when I struggled with all of the basic movements for the first couple months.  My advice is to “Give it a try, you might learn something about yourself and make a few friends along the way.”

Any additional comments you would like to share?  Thank you coaches for the Athlete of the Month nomination.  Also, thank you to my fellow athletes for motivating and pushing me every day.  Let’s lift some weights!

Tracey Ent

Tracey Profile

Tracey Ent, of Burlington, joined the FIT team a little over a year ago. This substitute teacher, mother of three and newcomer to CrossFit, says she learned about the sport through Facebook.

“It looked like something I really wanted to try,” Tracey says, “but I was totally intimidated. From what I could see there were a million things I didn’t know how to do.”

Her sister in law stopped by one day and invited her to try a class at Hyper CrossFIT. The welcoming atmosphere immediately eased her trepidation and after just one class, she was hooked. The people, she says, are what keep her coming back. She loves the constant support and family values that Hyper CrossFIT exudes.  

“All of the members and the coaches cheer each other on,” Tracey says. “You feel like you’re part of a family. It’s just another reason why you want to show up everyday. You get excited for each other when they accomplish new skills or PR a lift. It is definitely one of my favorite parts about being a member of FIT.”

Tracey experienced her first CrossFIT high when she attended a competition with some teammates. While it was more than a little out of her comfort zone, she succeeded and surprised herself after all was said and done. Turns out she never realized how much she was capable of doing.

Her second success revolves around “Grace”. The first time she attempted it, she was able to lift 55 pounds. Just one year later she was able to hit a new PR of 95 pounds, nearly double the weight from her first effort!

“Having Coach Yolanda there that day was awesome,” Tracey says. “She has been one of my biggest supporters and she could see how excited I was.”

Tracey won’t stop there. She is determined to continue improving her skills and getting better.  Right now, she is focused on linking her double unders together and doing a strict pull-up.

Her favorite WOD is “Fran”, primarily because it includes thrusters and pull-ups, which she would also include in her personalized WOD if given the chance to create one. She would call it “Tra-lo,” and would be RFT and include thrusters, sit ups, wall balls and double-unders.

Tracey’s advice for newcomers out there? “Just try it. You will push yourself in a way you never knew you could and accomplish things that will make you so proud of yourself… All while people you’re working out with are cheering you on.  You’ll never know unless you try.”

Wise words from someone who was never an athlete before, and even jokes that she only participated enough times in gym class to get a passing grade… Look at her now: Hyper CrossFIT’s Athlete of the Month.

Keep up the fantastic work, Tracey. We’re so proud to be called your CrossFIT home.
