Hugo Funes, member since June 2014, has only one regret when it comes to CrossFit: he wishes he’d started years ago. The work he’s put in over the last year and a half has completely transformed his physical condition and improved all aspects of his health and wellness. Case in point: before starting CrossFit, Hugo’s one-mile run time was 18:41. His new PR? 7:37!
Read our Q&A with Hugo to learn more about his accomplishments and dedication to CrossFit 718.
How did you discover CrossFit?
I knew someone that had done it, so I went online and browsed to see what CrossFitters do. I realized I wanted in! I started looking for a box that could make me feel comfortable, and CrossFit 718 did so from the first moment I walked in. I knew I was home.
What kind of changes have you noticed since starting CrossFit?
I’ve definitely noticed changes in my endurance, and I have greater cardio capacity for sure.
Why do you continue to do CrossFit?
I enjoy it very much. I’ve come to love it, and it’s an excellent source of good health.
How do you make time for working out?
I make time with devotion and dedication. I make it important.
What are your favorite lifts?
I like deadlifts and back squats because they strengthen my entire body.

Right now I’m working on back squats. I want to hit 300 lbs.
