Athlete Profile: Rory Graetch
Rory Graetch is our 2nd Paleo Challenge winner! He came into the challenge fairly new to crossfit. He dedicated himself to the Paleo plan for 3 months and did extremely well! His goals going into the challenge were to lose weight and get push ups and pull ups! Rory is a big guy and body weight movements were a struggle.
Rory's commitment to the Paleo challenge and crossfit paid off! His transformation was obvious to those around him! You could see Rory slimming down before your very eyes! Rory has lost over 15 pounds and his performance strides certainly gained him recognition! Yes, he can do push ups and pull ups!!!
Here are his benchmark stats:
Start: 14:10 (jumping pull ups)
End: 9:10 (still jumping, some kipping)
1 RM Deadlift
End: 1:23 .... WOW!
Congratulations, Rory! It's been amazing watching your transformation! Keep up the great work. You've been a true inspiration and I know you have a LOT more in you! ... You've already earned a reputation as one incredible rower!!!
