This week, we are getting to know Trent Hillger! Trent has been CrossFitting for two, going on three, years. He learned about CrossFit through Joe DeGain at a wrestling camp where CrossFit was incorporated. His interest in CrossFit was sparked through his drive to become strong and more athletic. Trent "drank the medicine" and fell in love with CrossFit the very first time he did it. His first WOD was a 12 minute amrap of 100 burpees! When asked what has changed in his life since he began CrossFit, he said, "I just feel stronger and more athletic, especially with wrestling and football." His strengths in the gym are squat cleans and deadlifts, and his weaknesses are in muscle-ups and snatches. Trent plans to improve on his weaknesses by "just keeping training harder and harder." CrossFit has helped shape who Trent is today. He said, "I'm just mentally tougher, like in wrestling matches. Especially in long ones, overtime matches. And in some of the tough workouts."
Thank you, Trent!
