NorCal CrossFit Feb. 12th 2014

Athlete Recognition - Mountain View

Brandon Walker

Brandon is a great athlete that comes in everyday looking to crush his workouts. No matter what it is he's there. I see him 5-6 days a week rain or shine and he's always willing to put himself through what's upon him. In the last several months I've really seen him grow as an athlete. He seems to pr something every time he touches the bar, the man is strong. He's also broken out and tried a few competitions and has done well whether it be team or individually. He's a great guy to talk to and always willing to learn more which is awesome.  

When did you join CrossFit NorCal (MV)?

May of 2012

Why did you join CrossFit?

24 hour fitness got real lame real fast. I wanted to receive some professional strength and endurance training, and learn the correct way to work out while still having fun. A bonus is all the cool people Ive met and friends I've made during this time.

What changes in your health, physique and overall performance have you seen since starting CrossFit?

Since starting CrossFit, Ive made huge jumps in all my lifts as far as weight goes, my mobility has improved significantly, and my recovery both during and after workouts has gotten better. As far as physique......I still have some work to do.

What advice would you give to someone with regards to starting CrossFit?  

Be patient, stretch, roll out, listen to your coaches, have fun.

Favorite CrossFit exercise?

Back Squat All Day!

Favorite activity outside of CrossFit?

Love going to basketball games, concerts, and waking up early on Saturdays to give Jordan all my money (sneaker addict)

Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit?

My FIRST and ONLY handstand pushup

Favorite place to eat a paleo-ish meal?

Pampas "MEAT RODIZIO" (insert Rick Ross grunt)

Something that people would be surprised to know about you?

I actually do talk and smile from time to time, haha.

What/who inspires you the most?

The Man, The Myth, The Legend...Larry Walker (aka my Dad)

3 Squat Clean (95/65lbs)
