Many of our Dose of Awesomes are highly visible in the community, working out in our CrossFit classes in the front room, socializing with just about everybody. But sometimes, we have someone who flies a little under the radar. Someone who takes the road less travelled, dedicating all time and effort in pursuit of one goal: getting strong as hell.
Tristan G. has been working out at UB for literally ever (well, since 2011) and was once one of the perky CrossFitters attacking the WOD. But something happened halfway through 2014. Something that made him seek out the grittier atmosphere of the back room. Perhaps that signed poster of Arnold on the wall spoke to him. I kinda picture him becoming Batman at this point, and SWOD is now his batcave, where he keeps his gainz.
Tristan has become stronger, a better mover, and obviously, Batman. Over 400 hours of dedicated practice means he is one of the most consistent athletes around. He still throws in the odd CrossFit class, so if you're not part of the SWOD crew and you see him in class, know that this awesome man is about to throw down with a strength borne of determination, consistency, and dedication.
Tristan - you're awesome - stay Batman!
