Member of the month for August 2017

 Troy Sheahen member of the month Aug 2017
I would like to announce Troy Sheahen as the member of the month for August (I’m late on this again, I know).
This guy is one of the nicest humans to come into our gym. He goes above and beyond to interact with the community, helps people with setting up and putting away their gear. On that topic, he goes above and beyond to help out Emma, who is a client at CFMSD and a previous member of the month. For those that don’t know, Emma is blind but does an amazing job and Troy ALWAYS goes out of his way, even missing his workout to make sure Emma is set up and ready to go. This kind act and much more are just some of the reasons why he is a member of the month. Also because he used to not train on Fridays because there was beer to drink, and now he trains and Fridays and just enjoys a beer at the gym haha. Seriously though, Troy has been amazing for a long time, and now it’s time for that acknowledgment.
When and why did you start training with us here at CrossFit MSD?
I started at MSD on your birthday last year!  I started because I saw a photo of myself from Coffs Harbour when I was racing karts and thought “who is that fat old guy that looks like me!!”
What have you achieved since training with us at CrossFit MSD?
Since getting back into full training after my shoulder injury I’m setting PB’s each week.  I’m happiest with my snatch work, I could only power snatch at the start of the year.
Who is Troy away from the box? Work, hobbies, family life, etc
I work in Logistics, not very exciting.  I race karts and that was one of the reasons I started CF.  I needed to lose weight and strengthen my forearms, shoulders, and neck.  At Coffs Harbour earlier this year I scored my 2nd Pole Position at a National Titles, 21 years after the first one 🙂
Tell us a fun fact about yourself?
I have at least 5 toes on each foot.
What are your goals for the next year?
I want to snatch my body weight…..that might be a 2 year goal!
