Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, job, sports, military, interests, etc.). I am from Lucknow, India and moved to US around 14 years back. I am a software engineer by profession and met my beautiful wife, Rashmi, here at work. We’re blessed with two daughters 8 and 4 years old. Apart from Crossfit, I actively participate in Cricket and pool tournaments.
What were you doing before you joined CS&F? I was at another box in Cumming for few years before joining CS&F. During covid I was mostly working out of my garage.
Favorite music to workout to? Bhangra / Heavy Metal
Favorite Cheat meal? Biryani
What were your goals when joining CS&F and have you achieved them? I was looking to shed off some extra pounds and gain strength. Also, to work on some movements like double unders and muscle ups. While I have got a long way to get to a muscle up, I certainly have lost some weight, gained strength and gotten better with my DUs.
Do you have any other special memories/ achievements during your time here? My Greatest achievement so far here is to reach 30 DUs in a row. Earlier I could not get more than 2-3 at a time. I have also PR’d my lifts => Strict Press, Back Squat and Deadlift.
What advice would you give to a newbie just joining Cumming Strength and Fitness? Be coachable, trust the process and show up every day.
Something we might not know about you is? I’m a foodie and one main reason I Crossfit is so I can eat anything I want. I like to cook as well and I take pride in my Goat Curry 😀
