Athlete Spotlight: November 2016

Grayson Casteen

Athlete of the Month for November

A Little About Me

I am a field engineer for a heavy civil contractor, building roads and bridges.  I got married back in May and have lived in the Raleigh area for the past 11 years or so.  I grew up in a small town in eastern NC.  I’ve mostly always considered myself to be in decent shape because I’m pretty active.  I run, play sports, hike, but I’ve never really done any serious strength training.

How I Found CrossFit

A good friend of mine goes to Zeal and i just happened to see some of the progress he was making on Facebook, so I asked about it.  Turns out, another good friend new MK from a previous gym vouched for him.  The fact that Zeal is about 100 yards from my office helps too.

Why I CrossFit

I crossfit because I want to push myself to be better for myself and for my new family.  Everybody needs a stress reliever, and this one works for me. 

Favorite Exercise

Cleans and back squats

Least Favorite Exercise

Anything snatch

Favorite Benchmark WOD

Only done a couple of these but Fran was fun

Least Favorite Benchmark WOD

Karen might be the only other benchmark I’ve done so far I’ll say that
