The famous Stanley Sloan.

The famous Stanley Sloan.

Verve, this week on the Athlete Highlight we are featuring the one and only Stanley Sloan. Stan is currently a member at CrossFit Verve and is going through our internship program. Stan is very dedicated and it pays off. Take some time out of your Wednesday and read about this great man!

Stafford County, VA


Electrical Engineer (Oil & Gas)

What do you like to do in your free time?
Camping, hiking, going out to eat and just recently, mountain biking.

How long have you been a member at CrossFit Verve?
3 yrs.

What is your background in sports and fitness?
Football and wrestling in high school.  Ultimate Frisbee in college.

What changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CrossFit?
Since starting CrossFit, I’ve lost 40lbs and over 10% body fat.  I can definitely say that I’m the strongest and fittest I’ve ever been, including high school and college.

Has CrossFit influenced your life outside of the gym? If so, how?
Yes, definitely.  It’s given me the confidence in my physical ability to test my fitness outside of the gym.  Before joining Verve, I would’ve never attempted hiking a 14-er, running a Spartan Race or a half marathon.

What’s your favorite benchmark workout?
I’d have to say it’s a tie between Nancy & Elizabeth.

Any advice for someone just starting?
Be patient.  It’s easy to get frustrated and discouraged when you start out, and you can’t do a Double Under or Pull-up etc…  Learn the technique, put in the work, try to get one more rep than you did last time and I guarantee those movements you don’t have right now will happen.
