Congrats to Colin Hamilton on being our December Athlete of the Month!
Colin is one of our newer members here at TILT II but it feels like he’s been around forever! He’s been a great new part to our evening crew here and has jumped right in the deep end with Crossfit! He’s been a quick learner, picking up new movements and pushing himself to improve but smart when it comes to listening to his body and knowing when to modify if needed. Colin is always interested in learning technique the best he possibly can and extremely coachable. All his hard work is clearly paying off already! If you don’t all ready, get to know him a little more with a little Q&A below!
When did you first start at TILT?
I started at TILT in July of 2021 based on a recommendation from Patrick Kent, an old friend from college.
What is your favorite food?
Steak is my favorite at the moment, but I hear a great ice cream place is opening near the gym soon and it may be a contender.
If you could choose a walkout theme song, what would it be?
Scotland the Brave. The bagpipe is always appropriate when working with unwieldy objects.
You just won a million dollars! What is the first thing you would purchase?!
A cabin on a lake somewhere…but only if my kids’ college tuition has already been paid off.
What is your favorite outdoor activity or hobby?\
I love to roll (and occasionally paddle) Greenland-style sea kayaks.
What is your ideal vacation place?
My ideal spot would be a remote wilderness lodge with very few people, but plenty of great food and wine.
If you had any advice to give someone thinking about trying TILT what would it be?
You are not competing against anyone else. Start slowly and work on developing good technique. Be sure to stretch…it helps a lot.
If there was a workout named “Colin” what movements would we see in it?
Avoiding all the complex movements I have not been able to master (yet), my workout would have to involve lots of rowing, running, and rope climbs.
