Athlete of the Month: Tony

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself
There’s not a lot to tell. I’m from the great state of NC. I love to run, play the bass, and practice my Martial Arts. I have a pretty large family that hails from Hamburg, Germany and Eastern NC. Family is the single most important thing to me in life. This includes the family I have built with individuals along the way. Honestly, I’m just a country boy…born nowhere near South Detroit….but I’m still taking that midnight train going anywhere. 
2. What made you start CrossFit and what has kept you doing it?
Honestly, Cody Mason talked it up a bit to me. The Army APFT standards were changing, and I wanted to keep up with the new standards.
