NO REP! That’s typically what you hear when you attend a class with this months royalty, Colin. However, to be fair, he does adjust and still manages to take tops on the leader board, after making the corrections. Now imagine how many reps he would have had if he went below parallel from the beginning!
All jokes aside, the first day Colin came into COTH for his trial class, he came right to us and said, “I love this! Here’s my card, take my money”. There isn’t a more competitive athlete at our gym and we’re now pleased to call him our King of the Hill!

What drew you to CrossFit?
If anyone has spent more than 5 minutes working out with me, I can be a bit competitive. I wanted the competition of my glory days and the ability to counterbalance the beer I consume during the week.
What keeps you coming back to COTH?
100% the people. Tewfik went and broke my heart, but Dan, Mike, Fitz, and Sam have more than filled the void. I also like the fact that we are all in this
broken dilapidated building together, sweating it out.
Biggest improvements/struggles with CrossFit?
I am absolutely terrible at HSPU (I throw the ABMAT like a child when I’m getting lapped), T2B & PU (Shoulders aren’t great), and DU (Not the most coordinated).
Meat head nickname (with explanation)?
Dan Riviello decided “No Rep Mackitkatachan”. I feel like that is pretty self explanatory.
What type of workouts do you like (AMRAP, For time, EMOTM, etc)?
Do you like long, medium, or short workouts?
Name a few of your favorite movements.
Hang cleans, wall balls, running, push press.
Do you enjoy low reps/ high weight or high reps/ low weight?
Low reps high weight!
Anything else you’d like to see in your workout?
I want to be a workout entirely composed of the things I am WORST at. I want an AMRAP of HSPU, T2B, PU, and DU. You can add a muscle up in there at the end to make it more not my workout.
