Member Spotlight – Randall Patterson 

What a gift it was to get Randall as a member at our gym. He came in as a seasoned athlete who did CrossFit for a few years in Ft. Lauderdale before his job brought him to Vero. Right out of the gate, he’s been extremely friendly and is one of those people who can fill a room with a good vibe. When he’s not traveling for work, he’s dedicated to the gym and always brings a ton of intensity to his workouts. Outgoing, intelligent and interesting…more on Randall below: 

Occupation: Industrial Automation & Controls Specialist/Owner’s Representative for FPL.

Family: Wife, Maureen Hannon.  Also have 2 Golden Retrievers.

What’s your go-to workout music?: Anything upbeat, but Rage Against the Machine really motivates me.

Favorite CrossFit movement or workout: It’s the variety and constant challenge that Crossfit offers that I love the most.  Clean & Jerk and Hero Workouts (Murph!) are the most fun.

What would you eat for your final meal?: Grilled Berkshire pork chops, fresh corn on the cob, garlic mashed potatoes a salad and an old vine Zin.  And for dessert; home made pear pie with Inniskillen Ice Wine.
