Q1: What do you do for a living?

I’m the Landscape Supervisor for the City of Lafayette Parks Department.


Q2: How did you get into CrossFit?

A friend took me to the opening of Uncommon.


Q3: What do you like most about Uncommon? 

The people


Q4: What is your favorite CF movement? Why? 

The back squat because it’s a great compound lift that is a functional movement.


Q5: What is your least favorite CF movement? Why? 

Double unders because they are major cause of frustration.


Q6: What do you do for fun on the weekends?

Anything outdoors, particularly hiking with my dog


Q7: What would you say has been the biggest driving factor to help you improve your health and wellness?

I thought I was relatively healthy because I exercised regularly and had a job where I was active. I was very wrong in thinking that was enough after seeing some blood test results. That is what pushed me into a healthier lifestyle.


Q8: What is your favorite ‘cheat’ meal?

Fried chicken


Way to be Uncommon, Quinten!
