Name: Phil Best
Profession/Career: Professor of Physiology and Bioengineering . (Retired)
FH: Why do you train?
P: To be able to continue doing the things I love to do: being active outdoors (skiing, hiking, diving), keeping up with the grandkids, traveling to the less visited parts of the world.
FH: Why do you do train at FUELhouse?
P: I started at Fuelhouse because Dave of Level 4 Crossfit gave it his recommendation when he closed his gym. I stay because the programming is great, the coaches are all excellent and the atmosphere supportive and welcoming.
FH: What were you most afraid/skeptical of when you first joined our gym?
P: I was, and am still, terrified of jump ropes.
FH: What one thing got you to take the initial leap and sign up?
P: Dave closing his gym. (Level 4 Crossfit)
FH: What were your goals when you first started?
P: Stay healthy, get stronger and improve my overall physical condition.
FH: What are your goals now?
P: Pretty much the same as when I started...keep improving my physical skill set and overall fitness. I don't buy the notion that aging means that you will be unable to continue to do the activities that you enjoyed when you were younger. But, I do have to work a bit harder to keep myself in decent physical shape.
FH: What is most important to you in your life right now?
P: Family and living an active life.
FH: What are your biggest challenges/ pain points in life right now?
P: Luckily, I don't really have any major concerns.
