ATHLETE OF THE MONTH JEFF BUCKNER

I am extremely honored to be chosen as AOM for September.  I still cannot believe it.  When Oscar told me, I said “stop messing with me!” It was great to see his support and you could see from his smile that he was genuinely happy to see me improving and working hard.  I saw those same genuine smiles from Lynette and Ro too, although Ro’s was a little shinier.  I guess it is true that you can teach an old dog new tricks!! During grade school and high school I was an athlete; I played football, soccer and ran track.  I played club lacrosse in college. While playing in a men’s lacrosse league after college I hurt my knee pretty bad and had to have reconstruction surgery.  I was told to never squat again and to always wear my knee brace while playing sports. I lost speed and mobility, so I quit playing.  I became a H.S. lacrosse coach.  I never wanted to be that fat coach on the sidelines so I worked out at the typical gyms with the mirrors and TVs while ‘working out’.   But I needed something different this time.  My first exposure to CrossFit was on ESPN.  Watching the Crossfit games, I thought those guys/gals were amazing.  I needed some direction and felt I should be doing more. After moving to New Town and passing TNT every day on my way to work, I googled it and saw a picture of John D. on the website.  We both work at Boeing, so I emailed him and he gave me all kinds of information.  He said there is nothing to lose – the first class is free. I’m glad the foundations is only two times/week because I was so sore after the first one.  I didn’t think I was out of shape.  I was wrong! I found out that I couldn’t do half a pull up.  During one of those foundation classes I thought I better be careful what I eat before class because it’s coming back, that was a lesson learned.  I felt like I was really accomplishing something.  After getting through the foundations I decided to try it, for just one month. I think I was starting to get hooked after going to the Garage Games and seeing Oscar, Lynette, Courtney and John D in action, doing really amazing things. It was awesome to be welcomed by all the coaches and athletes at TNT. That’s a big deal for me, I felt like I already belonged.  A special shout out to Abby, she was the first member that I met.  I was sitting on the bench right before the 1st foundations class, nervous as hell, and she introduced herself.  I just assumed that she was one of the coaches.  CrossFit is as mentally challenging as it is physically.  I’ve learned that I can push myself further than I thought. Recently, I have been able to accomplish things I didn’t think were possible: handstands on a night[...]
