Each month the coaching staff at EHP selects a member that is “Better Than Yesterday!” The selected recipient is a great example of EHP’s CREDO—demonstrating compassion, honesty, resilience, perseverance, and tenacity. Jamie Maguire was selected as September’s “Better Than Yesterday” recipient.

Why do you start CrossFit?
It was really on a whim. My wife Mary and one of her friends were starting a CrossFit bootcamp and she asked me if I wanted to go with them, I figured why not?

Why do you continue CrossFit?
I like that all the workouts are programmed ahead of time, so I don’t have to worry about what to do at the gym, I just show up. CrossFit is also great because you get to know people in classes and workout together, instead of a typical gym where everyone just puts headphones in and ignores each other.

Greatest achievement since starting CrossFit?
Losing some fat and building muscle. I did body scans with coach Lucas and it was cool to see the numbers show my fat go down while my muscle mass went up.

How has your life changed since joining EHP?
Right after I joined, I started a nutrition program with coach Lucas. I learned a lot about macros, how much to eat and when to eat. I feel like now I have a much better understanding of how food can support my workouts and how I’m feeling overall.
