Sometimes an athlete books their Onramp without setting foot in the gym. We don't know who they are, we just have the day and time they're going to show up, and their name. When today's awesome booked in with me, all I knew was that Peter Jackson was arriving to learn how to do CrossFit from me, a New Zealander who also happens to be a huge LOTR nerd. Naturally, I was excited. If I had known that it wasn't internationally renown director Peter Jackson, I might have been a little disappointed, but I would have been so wrong to have been! Because our Peter Jackson, THE Peter Jackson, is so much cooler than any hobbit-loving beardo could ever be.
Could director Peter Jackson go from newbie to RX badass in a matter of months? I doubt even allying yourself with Sauron The Deceiver could help with that. But our Peter Jackson, THE Peter Jackson, totally did that. Would director Peter Jackson schedule United Barbell as the first stop to his ultra-romantic treasure hunt proposal to his CrossFitter girlfriend, Debra? Not even if he switched genres from fantasy to RomCom would that ever happen. But our Peter Jackson, THE Peter Jackson, did. Does director Peter Jackson continually work on his weaknesses until they become strengths? Ok, he probably does, but our Peter Jackson, THE Peter Jackson, does all this and also deadlifts more than an angry Balrog.
