Matt Lewis – Athlete of The Month

San Diego CrossFit

Matt Lewis
Athlete of the Month

There are plenty of athletes in our CrossFit 619 Family, but there are a certain few who truly embody the heart and spirit of CF619. Matt Lewis is one of the few and we are thrilled to announce that he is the Athlete of the Month.

Matt Lewis has grown up living an active lifestyle and learned what being part of team was by playing soccer in high school. He recently competed in his first CrossFit event, the Reindeer Games and absolutely loved it. Matt’s passion for Sky diving has allowed him to travel the world, break world records and win several awards. A few of the most amazing places Matt has had the opportunity to jump from were downtown Vienna and off the cliffs of Switzerland. One the most inspiring jumps was being a part of a team of friends that came together for the world record of building a formation.

Matt found CrossFit 619 through Living Social and quickly fell in love with the workouts, coaches, and community. He travels quite a bit and has tried other gyms, but none compare to CF619. The focus on form and safety is beyond what he has seen elsewhere. Matt is constantly smiling and always pushes himself and others around him to become better athletes. He is truly a team player and we are proud to have him as part of the family.

How did you get involved in CrossFit?
I was debating on trying Crossfit for quite some time, but was making up excuses and putting it off. In June 2013 a good friend who is an avid crossfitter lost his leg in a motorcycle accident. 3 weeks post-accident he was in the gym doing presses/deadlifts/cleans/jumping rope/etc. I figured I had no more excuses once seeing him kick butt with one leg and found CF619. I was instantly hooked. I love getting my butt kicked alongside a great group of people every day.

What was your first WOD/experience?
Cindy and it was horrible. I think the bands did more work than my muscles.

How long have you been CrossFitting for?
1 ½ years

What is your biggest accomplishment?
My overall fitness. Never in my life have I been in better shape than I am today.

What is your favorite/least favorite WOD/movement?
Favorite would have to be clean and jerks. It feels awesome lifting weight and pushing it overhead. Least favorite are wall balls. No matter how many times I do them they never get easier, although I think it is mostly mental.

Which is your favorite Nasty Girl? (Fran, Cindy, etc.)
I wouldn’t say it is my favorite but I did Diane a couple weeks ago and had fun.

What do you do for a profession outside of Crossfit?
Flight Test Engineer and part-time professional skydiver

What are your hobbies outside of CrossFit?
Skydiving, hiking, playing with my dog.

A fun fact…. Or two….
I am a World and multiple National Champion Skydiver

Lifestyle (Paleo, Vegan, Don’t Have One…):
I try to eat clean with no processed foods, little to no sugar, little to no breads/pastas/etc. I definitely have 1-2 cheat meals a week, and go to town.

Fitness Goals?
To continue progressing and learning. There is always room for improvement and CF619 has the perfect community/energy to help me grow.

Summer Challenge Winners!

Congratulations to Nancy Stroud, Cyndy Alarcon, Laura Bangert, and Kathy Murray on completing the summer challenge!

To say congratulations, all four of these wonderful ladies will receive entry to our upcoming RX Jump Rope seminar on August 24th and will be featured in our athlete spotlight next month. Congratulations again and thank you for being all-star members at CrossFit 619!

10-13 June 2013 at CrossFit 619

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday for the Summer Challenge Kick Off! You can still join and buy-in to the challenges (Nutrition and Personal Record) until Wednesday June 12th.

To answer a few questions that we have received:

For the PR challenge you are welcome to work on your 1 Rep, 3 Rep, or 5 Rep max depending your experience level. If you are not sure where to begin, ask a coach and they can help you determine your level.

For the nutrition challenge, if your current goal is to gain weight than we can use the percentage change for your weight gain instead of loss. Also, regarding protein powders . . . you can absolutely add protein powder to your personal nutrition plan and food journal – you will receive a point for food journaling that day. You will not receive an additional point for eating from the Chris Keith Maintenance Food Plan, as we only include natural foods on that list.

If you have additional questions please email Coach A’verria at averria@crossfit619.com
