Today is a scheduled rest/recovery day, but don’t worry! We are open and running on our normal schedule. In today’s CrossFit group classes, you’ll have the option of doing either yesterday or tomorrow’s programming, which can be found in the comments section of today and every Rest Day’s post.
Better Know a Member: Adam Scher
Oh yeah: it’s another installment of our Better Know a Member series. For the past 3 years, we’ve been bringing you these profiles from across our community of kind, cool, wonderful members. In our previous edition, we got to know TFBA Victoria Matos. Today, let’s learn more about Adam S.!
Name (and any nicknames):
Adam Scher or Scher-Bear as David likes to call me.
Where were you born and where did you grow up?
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I’ve sworn never to move back though.
How long have you been CrossFitting, and how did you arrive at CFSBK?
I’ve been doing Crossfit since August 2010.
My ex convinced me to sign up for Foundations at CFSBK, and I was extremely apprehensive as I never really did well in a typical gym setting. It turned out that the type of movements really suited me. I loved the community aspect of the gym, the coaches, really everything about it. Long story short… the gym stuck around, my boyfriend did not.
What’s your hidden talent?
I’m a really good dancer and I have a degree in it. Don’t believe me, put on some FUNK!
Ask me about that time I…
Was 17 and exploded my car on the way home from a rave at 4am.
What are you up to when you’re not at 597 Degraw Street?
When not at the gym you’ll most likely find me working. I own my own creative agency in DUMBO, CMYK, so I spend a lot of time at the office. Running a business takes up more time than I ever would have imagined, but luckily I really really love it. We focus on web design/development, animation and video production The work is incredibly gratifying and I have an amazing team that I spend way too much time with. Here’s a shameless plug for an awesome campaign we made this summer with Crossfit super star Lauren Fischer and LesserEvil Snacks.
I also spend a lot of time in Philadelphia. My husband dances with the Pennsylvania Ballet, so I’m there a significant amount. Philly is an awesome place. It’s so much cheaper than NYC, and the food is just as good. Also, if you’re ever looking for a box out there I highly recommend Fearless Athletics.
And if I’m not in at CFSBK, work, or Philly… I’m sleeping.
