Name: Buck Hamilton
Born (where):Ft Lauderdale, FL

What are your hobbies and interests outside of CrossFit?: Mountain Biking, Autocross, Motorcycle, Lake, Tailgating, & I end up traveling a good bit.
Favorite WOD/type of Movements: A long chipper/ Power Cleans

How/Why did you start CrossFit? To make me do things I wouldn’t normally do at the gym.
What kind of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CrossFit? It has definitely been a roller coaster over the five and a half years. Overall a decent fitness balance. A Jack of all trades (Minus Pistols) but master of none. Biggest changes revolve around my diet and how committed i am to it. Usually I swing around 10 lbs throughout the year.
Have you experienced any changes in your life since beginning CrossFit that have been totally unexpected? I didn’t expect becoming a part of a unique community and gaining so many great friends throughout the years. I also didn’t expect the amount of time i would spend with the people/friends at crossfit as i do outside the gym, which i truly enjoy.
Please share your favorite CrossFit Harrisburg moment(s): I enjoy the holiday, anniversary & random parties. There are so many great personalities in one place it is always a blast.
Any advice for those just getting started? Be patient, check your ego (scale properly), have fun because it isn’t that serious & do not quit. Fortunately it will pay off.
Why CrossFit Harrisburg? It was originally the closest box to me. Fortunately I discovered quickly a great balance of seriousness & fun.
