Tim Manton has been a steady member with us since we opened back in March 2016 and we are extremely proud to recognize him as our spotlight athlete this month! He’s very humble and driven with an impressive talent for picking up new and complicated movements quickly. It definitely has not gone unnoticed, of how well Tim takes direction and coaching cues. He has a solid work ethic and is consistently at our 5:30am classes. We are so glad we have Tim (and now his awesome wife, Katie) apart of our CFR family.

Age: 31

Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit Rolesville? 

Finally hitting double unders.  It took a few solid weeks to get them down.

How did you find CFR? Why do you train?

I live right down the street and drove by when CFR was opening.  I had done Crossfit a few years ago for a few months, and wanted to give it another shot.

What is your favorite moment so far at CFR?

The 1 year anniversary party during the 17.5 workout.  To see a group of people of all ages come together and support each other in that way was truly inspiring.

What is your daily motivation to workout? 

To try and be as healthy as I can.  I sit at a desk all day, so getting up first thing in the morning and being active is very important to me.  Also, since my wife has now joined, I’m extra motivated to not catch any additional grief for not going!

Favorite and least favorite movements?

Favorite movement is the clean, least favorite is Rowing.

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

Don’t be intimidated.

One song that gets you amped up during a WOD?

Anything that has Rap.

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

I’m a huge baseball fan.
