lET’S GIVE A HUGE WELCOME TO OUR NEW CFG FAMILY MEMBER CHUCK McCRARY!!!
Name: Chuck McCrary
Hometown: Orlando, Fl.
What brought you and your family to Greenwood area?
I retired in August 2015 and my wife and I decided it was time to move from Orlando, Florida. We bought 20 acres outside of Abbeville and live there with our 3 horses and 2 dogs. Greenwood was a good choice because our best friends live here. Also, we compete in the equine sport of Cowboy Mounted Shooting and this is a good, centralized area to live to make it to more competitions. When we visited our friends here we fell in love with the area and its residents.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I started doing Crossfit at Crossfit Unmatched in Eustis, Florida. I have been doing it for a little over a year. I had a 5-month break when we first moved here to work on the property.
Favorite Crossfit Skill: Front Squats. Not because it’s my best but because it’s an exercise that I never thought I would be able to do when I started because of mobility issues. The fact that I can do front squats is an accomplishment I feel good about.
Favorite WOD: Grace
You have been here a few weeks now what are your first impressions of CrossFit Greenwood?
When I moved here, I was hoping to find a box similar to the one I belonged to in Florida. Crossfit Greenwood has exceeded that hope and then some. With Justin’s leadership and all the wonderful members here, I feel honored to be a part of this great community.
What goals do you have in CrossFit and what are some things that you would like to achieve?
My goals are to get better at everything and hope to get in much better shape than I am now. My CrossFit bucket list consists of rope climbs and handstand pushups. Double unders are coming slowly but I do see a light at the end of the tunnel.
I would like to thank everyone for being so welcoming and helpful since I have started here. Everybody has been so nice and I am happy to call Crossfit Greenwood my home. Hopefully, I will be a positive addition to the family.
