It’s important to recognize those who have made a commitment to personal training at our CrossFit gym. This month we’re talking with James Miller, someone who fought college weight until he found a place here at our fitness gym. It just goes to show how finding the right CrossFit location can go a long way to helping find the exercises that work best for the individual.
Congratulations to our Prototype of the Month, James Miller!
POM1.) Share your CrossFit Prototype experience and fitness journey
My journey to this amazing Box started over five years ago when I had put on 30 extra pounds of college weight and no longer felt healthy or comfortable with myself. I walked into a local Box back home in New York and, after struggling through my first workout (Fran), I instantly fell in love with the sport. Since then, I have bumped around from Box to Box, and finally settled in Westborough after I graduated from law school. From there, I came to Prototype through the Small Town merger. I am truly humbled by the amount of support and comradery that surrounds this wonderful place. Through my CrossFit experiences, I am happy to say that I have lost all 30lbs and have regained some muscle mass as well. CrossFit has become my passion, and will continue to be a lifelong sport for me.
2.) What is your favorite part about being at CFP?
What I love most about being at CFP is the level of knowledge exhibited by the coaching staff. They have a genuine desire help each member better themselves in a safe environment.
3.) What are your hobbies and activities?
During the winter, I endeavor to make several snowboarding trips, and during the summer my wife and I enjoy mountain hiking. We are looking forward to bringing our new dog with us on our future trips!
4.) How has (if it has) CFP helped you outside the gym (in sports etc)?
CFP has helped me to be all around more active in my day to day life!
5.) What are you continuing fitness goals to this point?
My continuing fitness goals are to constantly challenge myself with new movements and to be more conscious of the food I put into my body.
