Meet Nathan Garcia!
Husband / CrossFit Coach / GAME OF THRONES
1. How long have you been lifting?
Seven years if you want to consider my beginning stages of CrossFit. Serious weightlifting for about 2 years and I can tell I’ll be doing it for a long time!
2. Why do you lift?
I lift because it’s a confidence boost and a stress relief. Something about lifting a bar makes you forget about any problems you may have and leaves the focus on the task at hand. Forcing you to become stronger physically and mentally.
3. How does lifting influence other areas of your life, outside the gym?
It forces me to see the small things and the small victories. Not everyday is a win but a set up for something greater. Being a full time coach it’s good to pass on the experiences I endure to my athletes so that they understand that they are not alone in the fight and that greater days will come.
4. What are some of your other hobbies or passions besides lifting?
Coaching, I am currently the head coach at CrossFit Eclipse in Tulsa, OK and I wouldn’t trade the time with my CFE family for anything. Away from the gym killing this thing called ADULTING with the wifey, brewskies with the squad, kicking a ball around (soccer) and watching some dragons on GAME OF THRONES.
