SPOTLIGHT ATHLETE: Brantley Richbourg

CrossFit Rolesville would like to recognize Brantley Richbourg as our February Spotlight Athlete! Brantley is a 36 Technical Architect (IT), a loving husband and father, and very dedicated crossfitter. We like to choose our spotlight athletes based on heart, receptiveness to coaching, involvement within our community, and dedication they have shown in the gym to achieve progress.  And Brantley fits this criteria perfectly! Brantley has progressed so much as an athlete and has become one of our good friends. We are extremely proud to have him apart of our CFR family.

Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit Rolesville? 

Recently it was my overhead squat improvement from when I first started. I could barely do the bar and the other week I did 110.

How did you find CFR? Why do you train? 

I drove by almost everyday and I was looking to get back into working out again and thought, heh why not Crossfit.   I train because it keeps me mentally grounded and I also enjoy being in better physical shape.

What is your favorite moment so far at CFR? 

When I surprised myself and did an arms only rope climb when I didn’t think I could.

What is your daily motivation to workout?

I feel good when I workout and I want more of that feeling.

Favorite and least favorite movements? 

Favorite movement is probably cleans. Least favorite is either running or burpees.

What’s one thing you would tell to a new CrossFitter? 

Worry about form not weight.  (“YESSS!”, Coach Thomas & Coach Megan)

One song that gets you amped up during a WOD? 

Anything hard rock that I like.

Tell us something about yourself that we don’t already know. 

I love watching documentaries on Netflix. I’m a huge nerd.
