Meet Tim Gallagher. Tim has been CrossFitting with us at the Grail since January 2018. Tim joined the 500 Club long ago and is now approaching nearly 800 classes attended at the Grail! Tim is known for several things: his LOVE of bench press, deadlift, and pull-ups, his passionate dislike for wall balls, running 🏃♂️ and overhead squats 🏋️, his CrossFit shoe collection 👟 (don’t tell his wife, Lori), his regular critique of the workout playlist 📻, and his unsolicited opinion on just about everything. 😜
But seriously, this is all part of his charm and why we love him! We love him so much and know he has a great sense of humor, so we graced him with his own award for 2020: The Cherry Picker Award. 🍒 Yep – if there are wall balls in a workout, there is a good chance that might be Tim’s ‘rest day.’ It has actually been great watching Tim get stronger, faster and fitter over the last several years, especially when he reached his goal last year of completing a 75# overhead squat – he conquered his nemesis! 🎯
This month, his goal is to do the ‘MURPH’ challenge (HERO workout) with a vest. We are excited to celebrate his next goal success, while he is on his way to the 1000 Club!
