The Weekly Dose of Awesome

This week’s Dose of Awesome is Nikhil (Nick) S.  Some of you may recognize him from SWOD or L2 class.  Others may know him from his 2nd place finish at the Ultimate Lift Off (#beast!).  Nick first started CrossFit in February 2011 at CrossFit Waterloo.  He knew a friend who was trying it, and was curious to try it because it looked like an awesome workout.

Nick joined the UB family when moved from the Toronto area  in July, and was the story of how he found UB is a special one.  When he was deciding where to live in SF, proximity to an awesome CrossFit box was toward the top of his priority list.  He did his homework, researching different CrossFit gyms in the area. After considering a few, he was impressed by our coaches’ qualifications and certifications, inspired by Jason L.'s testimonial on the website (Go Jason!), and saw how tight knit our community was by supporting Colleen at regionals.  After seeing all of that, he was sold.  After joining, Nick was diligent in working through his Level 2 checklist, and has quickly become a familiar face in the UB community.

Outside the gym, Nick works as an IT strategist.  His favorite WOD is Eva (Five rounds for time of: 800m Run, 30 Kettlebell swings @70#, and 30 Pull-ups…yikes!) and he has an extra special talent of being a champion napper.  We’re happy to have Nick as part of our UB family, and proud to have him as our Weekly Dose of Awesome. Congrats, Nick!
