Featured Athletes - April 2013

1. What are your names? 
Marty and Barbie
Marty and Barbie Taylor

2. When did you start doing CrossFit? 
December of 2011 at the Kendall location

3. What got you into CrossFit?  
Marty and I started running in the Spring of 2011 to fill our time and start a new hobby when our girls went off to college.  During winter months it was too cold to run. We needed to keep in shape while it was cold until we could run again in the spring. I saw your CrossFit website and called -- that's how we joined.

4. What do you like about CrossFit? 
CrossFit was a big challenge for the both of us and still is, but at least now we don't walk so funny from being so sore.

Somewhere along the way we fell in love with CrossFit and don't run so much anymore.

We love the different workouts every day and the shortness of the workouts – some days it may be ten minutes and some days longer, but always a challenge. We need the accountability and the encouragement from our peeps at Phalanx.

5. What is your favorite workout and Why? 
Marty's favorite workout is Fran -- he feels it's a great all over workout.

My favorite is any workout with Turkish get ups.  I like the way they make me feel the next day.

6. What is your least favorite workout and Why? 
Our least favorite is flipping tires -- that's the worst thing ever!

7. How has CrossFit changed your marriage and your lives? 
We think CrossFit has improved our marriage, because it's our thing we do together.

CrossFit makes you feel strong and healthy like you can accomplish anything.

Before CrossFit we were the least active people you have ever met. It has changed our life for the good, and now we have a second family.

Our CrossFit family is forever cheering us on. Marty and I would like to thank you for providing such a great place.

  1. Phalanx CrossFit loves the Taylors! Let me add three important things they didn't mention in their bio:
    1) They are being amazing role models for their college-age children (who are athletes themselves!)
    2) They own the local Sweet Frog frozen yogurt place.
    3) They also both have scores on our gym leaderboard - pretty impressive stuff!
