Tripple O.G. Borna Daftari! “My favorite thing about crossfit is the push it gives me to get an amazing workout so efficiently. Between the programming, coaching, and push from other members I do so much more than I ever could on my own or even with a personal trainer. My goals are just to be healthy, have the energy to play with my kids, and not gross out my wife… and luckily I’m doing better with all of those now at 35 years old than I was doing when I was 25. On that note, my favorite WOD is Diane, mostly because it seemed so impossible to me when I joined and I’m proud it’s something I can get done now. The reason I stay at CFR7 is because I’m constantly learning new things that help me be fitter and healthier. Whether it’s tips on form for weightlifting, new exercises, or mobility tips, I’ve been getting smarter my whole time at route 7 thanks to the coaches.
On Nov. 5 at 1:34 p.m., a terrorist named Major Nidal Hasan attacked fellow soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood, Texas. When the shooting ended, he had killed 12 soldiers and one civilian and wounded 43 others.
Spc. Frederick Greene, 29, of Mountain City, Tennessee, Pfc. Aaron Thomas Nemelka, 19, of West Jordan, Utah, Pfc. Michael Pearson, 22, of Bolingbrook, Illinois, and Spc. Kham Xiong, 23, of St. Paul, Minnesota, along with eleven of the wounded were active CrossFitters in the 20th Engineer Battalion, home to Lumberjack CrossFit.
