January 2023 Member of the Month: Sai

January Member of the Month

Congratulations to Sai, our Mischief Member of the Month for January, 2023. Sai has been motivated in his CrossFit training ever since watching a CrossFit Games series on Netflix three years ago. The fun, yet challenging, programming at CrossFit Mischief continues to push Sai in his fitness journey, with a goal to always keep improving. Last month, Sai, along with his partner Compton, were the first to finish 2 of the 3 gym holiday challenges, with Sai going above and beyond by doing over 400 burpees in one day to help take home the “W”. Sai always has a positive attitude in the gym and we look forward to watching Sai, along with his wife who he recently convinced to join, continue to push it in the gym so he can earn some extra dessert after his cheat meals each week!

What motivated you to start CrossFit?

It all started with me looking for a change in my fitness regime and watching the CrossFit games series on Netflix

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

Close to 3 years.

How has CrossFit improved your daily life?

It's just an obsession which is hard to get rid of. A day without doing CrossFit WOD makes me restless. Overtime I have seen my numbers going up and then hitting a plateau and then re-evaluating and doing all over again, to gain at least a couple of more pounds on the lift. 'Strive to be better than you were yesterday.'

How do you stay consistent with your training?

The change offered in CrossFit workouts on a daily basis keeps me on my toes and focused on staying strong.

What do you like most about CrossFit Mischief?

The constant push watching others work out and the WOD component after the strength component with the focused muscle already under fatigue. I also like the partner workouts on Saturday, it pushes me out of my comfort zone.

What is one goal you hope to achieve with joining CrossFit?

Stay fit longer.

Favorite CrossFit exercise?

Burpee box jump overs

Favorite healthy snack?

Quest nutrition bars

Favorite cheat food?

Where to start, anything overloaded with chicken and end the meal with dessert

One Interesting fact about yourself?

You will find me driving my motorcycle in summer.
