Member Spotlight June 2019- Pat Franey

What made you decide to try CrossFit?

I had tried a little CrossFit here and there, it was super hard but invigorating. Then friends strongly recommended ELC so we thought we’d try it!


What is your favorite part about Empowered Living Company?

Variety is big – never know what the workout will be, that along with people giving encouragement make it awesome.


What’s your favorite movement, lift or workout?

Power clean and Jerk – I’m still working on form, but I like it.


What’s one milestone you’re most proud of so far?

Powering through 5 weeks of Friday Night Lights at ELC, finished all of it!!


What are some unexpected benefits you’ve experienced since starting?

More energy, my core feels solid – and my wife says I’m a “hunk” now J


What is your next goal you plan to crush?

That’s a hard one.  Liking Burpees? (just kidding).  I’ll say getting my form down and my confidence up in lifting so I can steadily increase in weight.


What advice would you give someone walking through the Empowered Living Company door for the first time? Do the workouts as best you can, don’t look at how others are doing. Just be you and after a couple of months you’ll be killin it!
