I hope you are well. I am so excited to introduce to you the King of the Hill for March 2016, Dr. Anthony Cukras. Everyone loves Anthony at COTH! He works hard, always ask how you are doing and genuinely cares for people. He is a gem at COTH.
True story: When Anthony started training with us. Jenna and I thought that he was going to pass out in every workout. Not because he was out of shape. He works so hard that he will turned a little pale and start hyperventilating. At the end of every workout, he will come to us and say “thank you that was really fun”. Then, Jenna and I will take a deep breathe. Ok, he is alright.

What brought you to Boston?
My wife and I came to Boston in 2004 — which was supposed to be to complete our medical training. 12 years later and we’re still here. Now with our 2 daughters, Boston has become home. Boston manages to be a great city while still feeling livable and kind of suburban.
What drew you to CrossFit?
I got bored at the gym. Going to the gym became boring and isolating instead of being a great break from the day. It still astounds me that anyone cares whether I finish my workout — but the community of crossfit is great. It is fun, exhausting and a great stress relief.
What keeps you coming back to COTH?
The community of people at COTH is fun. It is fun to be around people of different ages and different background who all hang out together.
Biggest improvements/struggles with CrossFit?
Wanting to get better without taking it too seriously.
If you could create your own WOD, what movements would you use?
Double unders, pull ups, push ups — with short rounds so I wouldn’t rest too much.
Meat head nickname (with explanation)?
I’ll always be way more nerd than meat head.
