Kuper is just one of those people who has become the resident Handy-Man for the Coop, so naturally, we thought he deserved some extra recognition for all of the hard work he puts in!
You’ve been the Member of the Month before, what have you improved on since then (February 2017)? What goals are you still chasing?
I’m still chasing my goals of getting my body in full working order, pain free, and getting my nutrition up to par.
I took the CF-L1 to have more of an understanding of CrossFit, and I’m really glad I did. All I knew last month was the workouts, lingo, and other basics, this month I have a whole new view of what I need to work on to get better, and an overall different mentality towards CrossFit.
What impressed you most about the course?
After the classes of CF-L1, I was impressed on how well my trainers have taught me at PCC and at the course I was rarely corrected on my form. So listen to your coaches, they are trying to protect you, not limit you.
How are you going to take what you learned in the CF-L1 course and apply it to your workouts?
Now realizing that I can work out ten times a day and still not make much traction without correct nutrition was a sidestep that I learned at the CF-L1 class. I’m probably like a lot of you, I don’t eat horrible, but I don’t eat like Ben either. I’m still working on getting the bad food out of my house and keeping it out.
You’ve morphed into our resident handyman and the board, coaches, and members cannot thank you enough for all you do around here. Tells us about some of the projects you’ve done at the new location.
Handyman? Yeah, I’m just trying to help get PCC up to an even smoother and more functional facility.
What project has been the most challenging?
Everyone has had really good ideas so making them work for everyone is the fun/difficult part. It’s a challenge to make everyone happy, but we all have the ideas bouncing around. I probably use PCC to break away from the monotony of everyday work. This is my idea of procrastination by misdirection, working on something else, to avoid other work. My house is a mental and physical project, overwhelming at times, so it’s good to just take a break from it, come back to it with more focus, and then attack one thing at a time.
How did you learn all of these handyman skills?
I’ve always been good at maintaining, fixing, and making things, it comes really easy to me. Just playing my strengths I guess.
Is there anything you do not have “back at your house?”
I do have a lot of “things” at home because I like to be prepared, this is a blessing and a curse. The common joke is “Just ask Kuper, he’s probably got two of them.”
Thank you everyone for making me Member of the Month!
