NAME: Jeremy Avery
HOMETOWN: Born in Somers, lives in Enfield, CT
OCCUPATION: Supply Technician - CSMS/MSG ARNG
INTERESTING FACTS: I love sports. I grew up around the race track. I am a bird enthusiast and I have 5 chickens.
FAVORITE LIFT: Power Cleans
FAVORITE WOD: Murph or anything with running
LEAST FAVORITE WOD: Anything with Snatches
HOW DID YOU START CROSSFIT: I was looking for something other than the same old workout at a regular gym. I knew about Land Warrior from other people. My wife, Becky, told me to come down and talk to Tripp about it, I did the free trial, fell in love with it and 3 years later, I’m still here!
HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF CROSSFIT: Doing fun stuff with my daughter, Madison and my wife. I am very involved with Vox Church. I enjoy going to the races and running 5ks and 10ks (with the hope of running a marathon somday!).
WHAT KEEPS YOU COMING BACK TO LWCF: The people. The community. It’s like working out with family that you like. The fact that no one scolds me for my corny Dad jokes!
GOAL FOR THE NEXT 6-12 MONTHS: I want to continue to get stronger and be a better version of myself.
ADVICE FOR SOMEONE NEW TO CROSSFIT: Keep coming, keep doing it. You won’t regret it. There will always be days you don’t want to work out but you will always be thankful you did.
WHAT CLASS DO YOU NORMALLY ATTEND: 4PM - Monday through Friday
