Member of the Month: Paul Jackson
It is with great pleasure that we have named Paul as our member of the month.
Paul is that member who inspires others to show up regardless of what is programmed. He might be a master in the age category, but he’s young at heart when it comes to training! He loves it - Especially when rowing, thrusters and push-ups are on the whiteboard. Paul will always be the first to acknowledge, encourage and applaud a member’s achievement, first pull-up, or their first class at Reebok CrossFit Glevum.
“It’s rewarding as a coach to work with Paul every day. His goals to stay fit and healthy as a Masters athlete, with a few limitations, create opportunities as a coach to find new ways to challenge him with new movements giving him the results he is looking for.”
Paul joined us less than a year ago and is the model member as far as setting goals and achieving them is concerned. He has been focusing on improving his mobility and gymnastic skills and he’s seeing results everywhere. In fact, he’s been feeling so good about his achievements at Glevum that he recently finished as the 45th fittest UK Male in the 60+ age category of the CrossFit Games Open.
Also – fun fact, did you know that alongside running a busy farm, Paul has completed some pretty amazing challenges over the last few years? – Firstly performing 1 push-up for every day of the year totalling 66,795 in 365 days. Not to mention, he is also a member of the illusive Concept2 Million Meter Club by rowing an average of 2,739m each day within a year - His skills really showed when he played the Fish Game on the rower for the first time.
Congratulations Paul! Thanks for everything you do to make Glevum a friendly and fun place to work out.
