This Awesome has been mentioned before, but to one of our true giants, he deserves a second mention. No, really, he's giant. Chris Walker busted through the doors of UB a CrossFitter, but wanting to improve each and every day. He is not afraid to push himself to the brink each WOD he faces no matter what is written on the board. He is always open to feedback on how to improve even through the constant ribbing he receives from me about mobilizing more to realize full squat depth :). He lives for everything CrossFit, so much so that he even works for CF Media during the Regionals and Games.
But what makes Chris truly awesome is not his towering figure but his even larger heart and fierce loyalty to the UB community. He will always be in your corner, see you through to the end of that grinder and be there to pick you off the ground.
Chris will be relocating immediately to London (his last day is Monday!) for work and his absence will be greatly felt in our community. Chris, as a friend and coach, I can't tell you how much I will miss your presence at UB. I wish you nothing but fun and success in your new adventure. As you your doing your Open WODs overseas, remember that distinct voice in your ear telling you to get to squat depth or else, "No Rep!" Miss you already buddy.
