FIT IS NOT A DESTINATION, ITS A WAY OF LIFE

If it doesn’t Challenge you, it doesn’t Change you.

Simply put, CrossFit CE’s mission is to help you, “Change Your Life With Us.” After spending time in our facility and with our team we want our members to walk out of our doors after a workout and feel like they are better version of themselves. It isn’t the scientific sum of calories, workouts and weight that keeps our members returning. It is not the cutting edge equipment and technology. It is the people that count. Our team cares about guiding and encouraging each and every member to obtain the goals they seek for themselves. Our members’ goals are specific and if we can assist in that journey to realizing their aspirations then we have truly helped them change their life.

Rich Daniels - December 2018 Member of the Month

I had a great time talking with Rich. He and I share several pieces of our past and subsequent makeup on things including similar academic paths, personal interests outside of CrossFit (not Phish though), as well as the answer to the question of “Why CrossFit?” Rich has made an amazing transformation during his time at CrossFit CE through sticking to the program as well as living the purposeful life. In his own words...

Tim Ferris's 11 questions
 
  • What is the book (or books) you’ve given most as a gift, and why? Or what are one to three books that have greatly influenced your life?
    • The book that comes to mind is Man’s Search for Meaning, written by Viktor Frankl. I first read it in high school and have read it several times since. Absolutely harrowing account of the Holocaust, along with an incredibly powerful message of human dignity, and finding meaning in life no matter the circumstances, through right conduct and right action. 
 
  • What purchase of $100 or less has most positively impacted your life in the last six months (or in recent memory)? 
    • Ascent Whey Protein and Ascent Casein Protein. I use this stuff almost everyday. Really like that Ascent’s products (even though its pricey) as they only have a few, clean ingredients. Great addition to my diet, especially on days where I may not have eaten meat or gotten a lot of protein from real food. Would love a sponsorship from Ascent…but I don’t know what they’d sponsor me for…haha. 
 
  • How has a failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success? Do you have a “favorite failure” of yours? 
    • My favorite failure was not making the basketball team in high school (had an emergency appendectomy the night before 9th grade tryouts). I was devastated at the time. However, this failure lead me to eventually join the tennis team, where I was named captain my senior year and made it to state with my doubles partner, Tom, who turned into one of my closest friends. 
 
  • If you could have a gigantic billboard anywhere with anything on it—metaphorically speaking, getting a message out to millions or billions—what would it say and why?
    • “Waste no more time arguing about what a good man (or woman) should be. Be one.” -Marcus Aurelius 
 
  • What is one of the best or most worthwhile investments you’ve ever made? (Could be an investment of money, time, energy, etc.) 
    • I’ve invested almost 9 years of my life towards my relationship with my wife Maggie. Definitely the best part of my life. 
 
  • What is an unusual habit or an absurd thing that you love?
    • I love the band Phish and have seen them in concert about 25 times. 
 
  • In the last five years, what new belief, behavior, or habit has most improved your life?
    • This one is easy - CrossFit. It has been about 2 years since I first stepped into a CrossFit gym, and things really took off for me as far as fitness is concerned since becoming a member at CE in September of 2017. I love the community at CE, as well as how CrossFit incorporates nutrition and functional capacity into their overall methodology. 
 
  • What advice would you give to a smart, driven college student about to enter the “real world”? What advice should they ignore?
    • Even though your formal education is about to end, never stop learning and taking on new challenges, even if outside your perceived area of expertise. Follow your passions as opposed to taking a job solely for the paycheck. 
 
  • What are bad recommendations you hear in your profession or area of expertise? 
    • I work as a school psychologist, primarily with students with disabilities. Not going to get into specific bad recommendations, but I will say that I’m a strong advocate for inclusionary practices in schools, as well as an advocate of the growth mindset when it comes to working with students with learning difficulties. 
 
  • In the last five years, what have you become better at saying no to (distractions, invitations, etc.)? What new realizations and/or approaches helped? Any other tips? 
    • Unfortunately, I have always been pretty good at saying “no” to various social invitations, etc,. If you spend time with me you probably realize quickly that I am an introvert. I am trying to work on saying “yes” more often.
 
  • When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, or have lost your focus temporarily, what do you do? (If helpful: What questions do you ask yourself?)  
    • Depending on the situation, I typically will do one or more of the following: exercise, eat a healthy meal, get a good night’s sleep (at least 8 hours for me), 16-hour fast, clean up my apartment, or take a walk.If it is a big problem that is causing me to feel overwhelmed, I will write down short-term and long-term solutions to that problem and get working on it as soon as possible.

  • How has a failure, or apparent failure, set you up for later success? Do you have a “favorite failure” of yours? 
    • I have had so many failures that i should have a PHD in “fuck ups”.  Top of the list is Going into business with friends (running a Bar) 17 years ago was one of the biggest failure to date. learned the importance of due diligence and accurate bookkeeping. At the time my life totally sucked but with time I realized, that experience has given me knowledge that I used in other endeavors.
 
  • If you could have a gigantic billboard anywhere with anything on it—metaphorically speaking, getting a message out to millions or billions—what would it say and why?

  • What are bad recommendations you hear in your profession or area of expertise? 
    • When I hear new homebuyers talk about what they learned on  HGTV I cringe. Especially when they think a rehab will take a couple of weeks and come in at budget.

    • Answering questions. 
 
  • When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, or have lost your focus temporarily, what do you do? (If helpful: What questions do you ask yourself?)  
    • I'm easily distracted so i just plan around it. If i have to do work for 30-50 min at a time.i schedule in a couple of breaks,  stand up, stretch ,drink water take a walk. Then get back to work for 25-35 min
These question made me use my brain more than usual. What I really want everybody to know is that I am really appreciative to all the coaches at CrossFit CE. The patience, love, and knowledge you all have has given me the push I needed. And big thanks to all the other CFCE members! It's been a pleasure talking with most of you and can't wait to meet the rest. Thanks for making this a community of encouragement. I wish everyone a healthier life! "
