Verve Athlete Profile: Ryan Fugate

Where are you from?

I am originally from San Bernardino, CA (AKA The Hood!) Moved to Denver last year.

How long have you been CrossFitting?

I have been CrossFitting for a little over a year

What is your favorite workout?

Roaming Diane. It was the first workout I Rx’d and handstand walks are such a challenge, it makes it a lot of fun. Not to mention Jay and O are terrified of being upside down, so its nice to have a leg up on those guys in something!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to swim whenever I can. Any kind of sports I love playing, aside from baseball – boring! I also enjoy using crossfit skills wherever I can make a fool of myself, aka jumping over parking meters (constantly varied right?)

What is one of your best/favorite goals you have accomplished since you started CrossFit? 

The most cliché answer I feel I should give would be my first muscle up (which was awesome!) but honestly it is probably how far I have come in my OLY lifts and just being able to Rx a lot more workouts. I remember when I started all I thought about was how I would never be able to do one of the WOD’s Rx. Now I’m most frustrated when I CAN’T do one Rx. 

Anything you would like to add?

I really want to thank the coaches. I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am if it weren’t for them. I learn new things everyday, and I will say every PR I get is probably due to something I have learned from Luke or Clancy in the AM class. Also, the community is awesome. I have made some great friends, and without them holding me accountable and pushing me, I would not have achieved as much as I have.

AND if you want the secret to being awesome at CrossFit (and just in general), here it is: WEAR BACKWARDS TRUCKER HATS AND CUT OFF T’s! BOOM
