Our August Athlete of the Month is Brett Whipple. Congratulations Brett! Brett is very coachable and a pleasure to have in class. It’s been really fun watching his progress as an athlete over the last several months. Great work, Brett!

Here’s a little bit more about Brett:

1. How were you introduced to CrossFit?

I was involved in a functional fitness class where I work, we did a lot of CrossFit type exercises. But, I just got to the point where I knew I needed better instruction, so started going to 3 Peaks.

2. If you never had to do this one exercise ever again, it would be …

There are so many things I don’t have in my wheelhouse yet, but honestly can’t think of an exercise so bad I would never want to do it again? Everything is good for us and modifiable (is that a word?) right?

3. If you had to make up your own WOD it would be …

It would have to include deadlifts, that is all I know!

4. Tell us a little about yourself, families, hobbies, job etc.

I have an awesome fiance, Tabitha, who was able to attend 3 Peaks this summer. Two daughters: Rosebud, 20 and Annie who is 17.

I officiate a ton of sports year round and CrossFit helps to stay in shape for that. I like to shoot guns and hunt when I draw tags. I work for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, handling all the insurance stuff and 2-3 other jobs they have me do.

5. Your proudest accomplishment?

My two daughters surviving being raised by me is pretty cool.

6. Your favorite cheat meal/food?

Pizza or enchiladas, oh yeah and definitely DQ Blizzards too!

7. What you love about 3 Peaks CrossFit?

The friendships and the great instruction on the movements.

8. What’s something we might not know about you?

I love to dance, but never seem to get the chance much.
