WED 02.26.14 Coach Spotlight: Michael

By | Athlete Profiles, WOD | No Comments

Get to know our new Head Coach Michael!

Michael takes over as our full-time Operations Manager & Head Coach next week. He’s already been coaching classes for a few weeks, so you may already have met him.
Welcome to the team, Michael!

Name: Michael T. Aaron
Age: 29
How long coaching CrossFit? I started coaching in 2010.
Other coaching certifications: MovNat Level 1 Certified Trainer. I went through the certification course this past weekend at here at Crossfit Midtown, so if you saw a group of us running barefoot, balancing on 2x4s, crawling, or vaulting boxes on Saturday or Sunday, this is what I was doing. Any one interested in MovNat (www.movnat.com) feel free to ask me next time at the gym.
Day job: I’m the new operations manager and head coach at Crossfit Midtown. I look forward to meeting all of our members in the next few weeks!
Athletic background/achievement: I was a multi-sport athlete growing up: swimming, baseball, basketball, soccer, track & field, football; then 4 years of rugby in college. I play rugby now for Atlanta and our team has had national success finishing in the top 16 in the county in Rugby 7s (new Olympic version of rugby) in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2013 as well as top 16 in Rugby 15s in 2009 and 2013.
How long doing CrossFit: I was introduced to Crossfit in 2008 through rugby as a way to becoming a fitter, more powerful athlete. I quickly became convinced that CrossFit is the best General Physical Preparation program in existence, and have been turning others on to CrossFit ever since.
Favorite CrossFit movement:one-arm dumbbell snatch
Favorite movement to coach: deadlift
In my spare time I enjoy: reading, watching movies and tv shows. Anything scifi/fantasy. Game of thrones, the walking dead, Star Trek. Avid chess player and card and board games.
Favorite quote: “A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does” — Dan Millman: Way of the Peaceful Warrior
Advice to new CrossFitters: Be patient with your progress: building strength, developing technique with each movement, and increasing your endurance takes time. Have a positive attitude and give your best every day at the gym. Don’t avoid WODs because you don’t like them. Most of the time that is exactly what you need.
