The criteria and standards that we look for when our team puts in their nominations for Prototype of the month are Coachability, Caring, and Community and in our opinion, Colin encompasses all three of those qualities handily. Congratulations Colin!
1.) Share your experience at Prototype
I started in 2013 with an eye towards cross training, in other words, the entirety of the reasons for joining was to help support my addiction to endurance training. At the beginning I was a devoted “cherry picker” (I still kinda am) to the longer more grueling workouts. I quickly learned CFP was much more than a place where you work out, it’s a special place, lead by GOOD man, with good people all around…needles to say I’ve been hooked since
2.) What is your favorite part about being at Prototype?
- The easy answer is, the community, and it’s true, however:
- The coaches who encourage us to make the right long-term decisions based on fitness levels and injuries
- Friends who we spend time with, in and out of the gym
- But most of all, my family (my wife and I and all 3 kids at one point have been part of the gym)
- ***I do love a grueling Saturday partner workout!!!
3.) What are your hobbies and activities?
Making bunk beds to create more room for activities
Developing the Next Leaders
4.) How has Prototype helped you or solved a problem for you?
For those who are part of this community you’ll know that there is certainly more than 1 way, in fact, there are many ways that CFP has helped all of us… At the core is they’ve found the recipe to make workouts interesting and approachable for all levels and all components of anyone’s/everyone’s training process (No matter what you’re training for).
5.) What are you continuing fitness goals to this point?
My fitness goals are many: At the the top of the list is figuring out how to race long and challenging events without fearing that I’ll run out of gas…literally.
