From moving more to finishing Hyrox
We are proud to announce Logan Moore as our January Member Spotlight! Logan just crossed the 1 year mark with us and the results he’s created for himself are remarkable. Read below to learn more about him and his journey with Dissent Athletics.
- Q: What made you want to begin your fitness journey at Dissent Athletics?
- A: I started at Dissent to move more, gain strength and flexibility..before I started I was having lower back pain and wanted to do something about it. Additionally working out by myself had gotten boring and I lacked motivation so I felt I needed to spice things up!
- Q: Tell us a little about your family!
- A: I’ve been married for over three years and my wife Mayra and I are expecting a baby girl in May! Mayra stays busy as a realtor and got into Ju-Jitsu last year. We have two dogs – Harvey the (130lb!) malamute and Bailey the black lab.
- Q: What do you do for work?
- A: I am an escalation engineer at Microsoft. I support customers who use Synapse Analytics on Microsoft’s Azure cloud. Synapse Analytics is an analytics service that brings together data integration, enterprise data warehousing, and big data analytics. I have been with Microsoft for 1.5 years and work from home 100% of the time which has been an interesting change.
- Q: What do you do in your free time?
- A: In my free time I stay busy with cooking, walking the dogs, photography, video games and reading.
- Q: Do you have any current goals in the gym? Anything you’ve already achieved or didn’t think was possible in the beginning?
- A: My current goals are to get a ring muscle up, improve my snatch & clean form and increase my front rack mobility to help thrusters not feel so terrible. I have gotten much better at dubs which used to feel impossible as well as handstand pushups. For me finishing Hyrox felt like a great achievement – something that seemed impossible and I didn’t want to do because of how hard it would be – I leaned into the experience and forced myself out of my comfort zone and to complete and finish the race as a challenge to myself.
