August-Meber of the month

Congratulations to Brett Ward- our August Member of the Month! We enjoy spotlighting one member each month to let you see a different side of them. With the ever growing community at CFL, we want you to feel like you know people from all hours of the day! MOM gives us that chance, to ask questions, hear your funny answers, and celebrate the community that makes CFL such a great place.



Few others in this world are like Brett Ward. He is witty, opinionated, doesn’t like to warm up, and is fun to be around.  When he’s not out at a brewery or hitting up downtown Livermore, he can be found with his friends and his better half, Kayla. He is very strong and loves lifting a lot more than running/burpees/cardio (but who doesn’t?). In all seriousness, Brett is an incredible friend, really easy to laugh with, a stand-up guy, and devoted to Kayla. We feel incredibly lucky to have him as our friend and a member of CFL.

When did you start CrossFit? 12/31/12 at Crossfit San Leandro

What class do you frequent? Either 4:30, 5:30, or 12 depending on my work (or lack there of) schedule that day

When is your birthday? December 8 (the same day as Nicki Minaj according to SiriusXM last year)

If you could be a celebrity for a day, who would you be? Jeff Bezos- if a normal person gets a package in 2 days imagine how quickly he gets things he bought online delivered. And I bet he gets an amazing discount at Whole Foods.

What’s something you’re really good at, but sort of embarrassed that you are really good at it? Mario Kart, on any console. But really that’s not that embarrassing.

What is something that a ton of people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point?
Taking photos that look candid but are actually super planned out. And Snapchat. 

What is your favorite cheat meal?
Is beer a cheat meal? But seriously I’m eating French fries covered in clam chowder as I write this, nothing is off the table.

List your three best personality traits: A quick wit and my ability to count.

List your three worst personality traits: My ability to follow verbal instructions, my ability to follow written instructions, and a quick wit.

What would be your favorite CrossFit workout? Anything that has power cleans but also doesn’t have any other movements.

What would be your least favorite CrossFit workout? Any workout that has running, toes to bars, or burpees. So literally 99% of workouts.

What does CFL mean to you? CFL means trying to get healthy with your friends but also undoing that work with Coors Lights after class. But really, I started at CFL not really knowing anyone, but after a few years I feel like everyone I know is somebody from CFL. It’s the best way spend time with your friends, and to make new friends, and maybe get a little stronger and faster while you’re at it.
Thanks for your love for CFL Brett. We hope you enjoy your very special month. Thank you for being a part of what makes this community unlike any other.
