CrossFitter of the Month – November 2017

Hey Folks!

It’s the most wonderful time of month!  We get to dole out some props to one of our favourite people again!  This month we’re recognizing someone who has been with us for some time and is often in and out due to work, but their work ethic never changes.  We’re stoked and proud to have this person with us, as they represent, for a lot of us, our fitness goal – consistency, and longevity.

This month we’re highlighting…


Here are Don’s answers to our questions!

Name: Don Ethier

Age: 55 young

Occupation: Retired from the military/ work for CP Rail.

What was your exercise experience prior to CrossFit?

I was a high school athlete in track, football, and cross-country skiing.  When I joined the military I got involved with everything from cross training to weightlifting and obstacle course race’s, as well as march and shoot competitions.

How long have you been doing CrossFit and why do you choose to CrossFit?

I’ve been doing CrossFit for about 2 years because it keeps me healthy and in good shape.

What is your favourite part of CrossFit?

I’d have to say the barbell work.  There’s nothing better than pressing or squatting some big weight.

What are your accomplishments you are proud of? ( Crossfit or non-CrossFit related)

In my military life, I would have to say being a member/operator with Joint Task Force 2 was by far the best time.  As for CrossFit, well I’m still working on them F#%k*@G double unders.

Favourite workout or lift?

My favourite workout would have to be anything with a 21-15-9, as for my favourite lift it would have to be the back squat followed close by the overhead squat.

Anything else you would like to share please feel free.

I’m very happy that I found CrossFit.  It is a great community to belong to.  I’ve had the opportunity to visit other box’s and every one is alway’s very welcoming.
