Athlete Spotlight: September 2016

Cameron Moccari

Athlete of the Month for September

A Little About Me

I live just five minutes away from Zeal with my beautiful wife and three kids, ages 5, 3, and 7 months. I am a fish out of water. I swam competitively from the age of six until my senior year of college, breaking a few NC state records in the backstroke along the way. I will always have a spot in my heart for swimming. On land: I didn’t touch a barbell until I was 29 (!) ,and I thought weights consisted of dumbbells and machines. My first weighted back squat was definitely not pretty or anywhere near parallel.

How I Found CrossFit

A couple of my co-workers introduced me to CrossFit at a nearby box a few years ago. I kept putting it off, giving them the classic “I need to get in shape first” excuse, until I finally gave in and decided I had enough of swimming back and forth in a pool all by myself. I found Zeal after moving to Holly Springs a year ago.

Why I CrossFit

I love the community, constantly being challenged, and that feeling after a great lift or WOD. I don’t necessarily look forward to waking up at the crack of dawn, but I look forward to every 6am class. I love sharing fitness with my family, and that both my 5-year-old and 3-year-old can do burpees. 🙂

Favorite Exercise

Clean and jerks, and bodyweight movements.

Least Favorite Exercise

Double unders. I always end up with rope marks…
