Our October Athlete of the Month is a long time member and no stranger to anyone at MCCF! Steve is a strong guy who has recently gotten Double Unders, and get’s PR’s on lifts on a regular basis. However, all the accomplishments aside, Steve is probably most well known for his 15 minute “fashionably late” appearances! LOL!
I asked Steve to put into words a few things about his experience at MCCF and this is what he had to say….
“I was looking for something better than what I had experienced in the past in terms of a gym. I had gotten into decent weight lifting shape through a small gym in Milford. When we moved to Old Saybrook I went to what is now Function Fitness for about a year. I was board with it. I lacked direction in working out. I would jump on an elliptical machine, then I would lift weights but I kind of felt like I was wing it with my workouts and therefore wasn’t getting anywhere. I hadn’t lived in Old Saybrook that long and I was hoping to make some new local friends. In the big gyms people walked around listening to iPods and not talking to each other. Through Facebook, I learned an old friend of mine from High School, who has gone to the games twice now, had been crossfitting for a couple of years and raving about it. It looked like he was having a blast so I thought I would give it a try. Much to my dismay at the time the closest box was in Branford. This made me worry about being late to the gym since travel time would have been about a half hour. I called the Branford box and they told me that Midcoast had just opened.
