David Rivera

Dave Rivera joined CrossFit PAX in December, 2013… having just passed his one year mark with incredible success, we wanted to recognize his impressive dedication, commitment, and progress! Congratulations, Dave, on earning Athlete of the Week recognition! Dave is the epitome of the never-give-up, keep-on-working, coachable athlete that we want to recognize. In the past year, he has checked in nearly 150 times. Dave is always smiling and always working hard, so there is no surprise that he is squatting over 300# and crushing PR’s on a regular basis. He shaved 9 MINUTES off his Warrior Dash time and is seeing some huge improvements in his sport, BMX racing. Great work, Dave! We love that you are always seeking to learn and pay it forward- we consider ourselves lucky to have you as part of Team PAX!

 

Here’s a bit about Dave!…

Why did you start at CrossFit PAX?

While in the military I always found time to get a good workout in, especially while on deployment. But life after the military brings an entire new set of priorities and most of the time exercise takes a back seat. There was always an excuse for not working out as I kept telling myself; it’s all going to be ok, I will workout tomorrow, then tomorrow would come and no workout. I knew something had to be done about it and one day I saw the CrossFit banner on the side of the road on 235. I googled CrossFit and was overwhelmed at the amount of information there was and most importantly what CrossFit was all about. It was then when I decided to try it out. Now it’s part of my everyday routine.


What was it like starting out at CF PAX?

One word…. Humbling!!! A very humbling experience. I had to check my ego/feelings at the door… it was a reality check! I asked myself; Am I going to be able to do this? It was during the fundamentals class where I learned that every WOD can be scaled to the appropriate skill level and still achieve the same result as that of a seasoned crossfitter. I was hooked… Now after a year I really enjoy the atmosphere and structure that CrossFit provides. The staff and fellow CrossFit members, who by the way, are great athletes make it a very friendly environment to learn. Which I am proud to be a part of.

What has changed in your life since starting?


Since starting CrossFit I have noticed an increase in strength and mobility. Setting achievable goals during each WOD keep me coming back for more. It’s a great feeling to see how much I’ve improved from when I started a year ago and it keeps me coming back for more.

How has your diet changed? What does your current diet look like? What foods do you rely on most?

I am a very picky eater. I mean picky. I do however, watch what I eat. Because after all, eating healthy is a major part of being physically fit and staying healthy. I have a long way to go and stepping out of my diet “comfort zone” is a goal for this year.

What have you accomplished and what are you the most proud of?

My biggest accomplishment to date have been squats, I am very proud of my 1RM weight. As an amateur BMX racer, I have seen all the hard work of CrossFit pay off on the BMX track. I made all of my National main events in 2014. I also shaved 9 minutes off 2013’s Warrior Dash in 2014 and looking forward to a better time in 2015.

What advice would you give to anyone starting CrossFit?


Do Not give up! If you put forward a good effort you will see the results of your hard work pay off. It won’t be easy. There is a wealth of knowledge in the Bunker, learn from it, apply it to better yourself then pay it forward
