Name-Tyler Anniello

Age-26

Occupation-Lineman for CL&P
Which class do you usually attend?-3:30
Favorite WOD?-My favorite WOD…anything with muscle ups
Favorite Lift?-My favorite lift has to be back squat even though i need much improvement
How long have you been CrossFitting?-I started crossfit with CFS and have been doing so for about a year and a half…but not as consistent as id like
What keeps you coming back?-The thing that kept me coming back originally was the fact that it was impossible to attend crossfit and smoke cigarettes, so it helped me kick the habit and become part of my routine.
How did you find CrossFit?-My step brother introduced me into crossfit and told me it was more my speed rather than throwing weights around by myself so i finally pulled the trigger and joined CFS.
What is your athletic background?-As far as sports go, i played soccer and golf in high school, but needless to say thats where it all ended…
How has CrossFit changed your life, lifestyle and level of fitness?-Not only has crossfit helped me quit smoking cigarettes but also has improved my every day performance at work but also helped me in many of my physical hobbies.
What is the one thing you have done here that you never thought you could do?-I never thought i would have a membership to any gym and consistently go for over a year.
What motivates/inspires you?-I think what inspires me the most is watching the people around me at CFS reach certain goals and personal achievements, and being competitive i try to keep up with everyone and also set my own goals.

What is your proudest CrossFit achievement?-I think my most proud achievement at crossfit was when I did 30 ring muscle ups in a WOD. Even though i didnt come back for a week, I felt that i reached a new standard for myself.
Name one goal/personal achievement that you would like to achieve through CrossFit?-My one goal is to get a Strict muscle up on the bar or rings, i am close but i still have yet to get a clean one in.  The one goal i am most proud of at crossfit is the fact that i attend classes at least 3 times a week. like i said before, i have never been this consistent and committed to any work out plan.
Hobbies/interests outside of CrossFit?-My main hobbies outside of crossfit are anything involving 2 wheels…motorcycles, mountain bikes but mostly motocross.
Tell me about your diet-My diet is a bit of a joke, i try to eat as clean and whole as possible during the week but as soon as the weekend rolls around its game on with the dirty food and tasty drinks . i work too hard all week to not unwind during the weekend and i think most of us would agree.
