Meet Scott Sankary, aka “Sank”

Favorite WOD: Cindy, 19 rounds PR

Least Favorite WOD: anything with a lot of C&J….I’ve got a lot of work to do on my Olympic lifiting, and I really need to work on this element.

How are you so efficient at burpees? I’m very low to the ground and not afraid of the concrete. (Ryan said burpees are how Sank ties his shoes, haha)

Why did you start CF? I needed to step-it up. Fat and over 40 wasn’t everything I thought it would be. I went to a bootcamp type class, and the instructor was a CrossFitter – started from there.

What is your fitness background? I worked out with a personal trainer for about 10 years prior to CrossFit and still work out with him once a week. I was a decent high school athlete. Nothing really stands out otherwise because I’ve never become addicted to any form of exercise….until I found the CrossFit cult that is.

Do you wear the “Five Finger” outside of CF? Only with a coat and tie.

You brought your son the other day – is he going to start CF? I have two boys, and I absolutely would like for both of them to become CrossFitters. I taught my 14 year old how to kip in about 5 minutes a few months ago (it took me 9 months). He did 29 the other day in one of his first high school football workouts and impressed the upper classman, so it’s already paying off for him, and he’s never been to a workout. Another little known fact….my wife Michelle comes to the Tues/Thur 9am class.

You go to both the 6 am classes and the 4:30 classes. What are the differences between the two? The two classes have a totally different feel. The rooster group is a great mix of young (i.e. Eric) and old (i.e. Paukune). It’s a great group, but we’re not long time CrossFitters (except for Dike)….We’re slowly working on improving our “not as rx’ed” reputation. 4:30 is the real deal with Ronin and the boys. They’re not only more physically fit but also more intellectually fit…except when Whiskey shows up.

You came the other day during 4:30 and complained about the heat….what’s up with that? I will not be coming to 4:30 this summer if I can help it. The older I get, the more I hate the heat. I can’t wait until the day when I’m regularly attending CrossFit classes in Colorado between June and September!

What are your CrossFit goals for the next three months? Good question. I’ve got to step it up in several areas….Olympic lifting, namely C&J, needs a lot of work. I need to learn muscle ups. I need to work on DU’s and need to get my pull-ups back up to speed.

Do you have a favorite CrossFit video? The first CrossFit games video with Dutch is greatness (“Every Second Counts”). I knew I was hooked when I actually sat and watched the whole thing one night.

If you could give advice to a person who is just starting out CrossFit, what would it be? Commit to 3 days a week for 90 days…If you get through it, you’ll be amazed at the progress you make. The other piece of advice….don’t let Paukune get between your ears.

    13 1/3rounds

    For a while there I thought I would beat Brent. I probably should have taken my shirt off to cut down on wind resistance… One of these days I’ll come in first.

    Good work Eric. Shave all your body hair and lighter shoes.

    I think my bald head provides some aerodynamics.

    Sorry I have missed you guys this week. I have been on vacation and now won’t be there Friday because of a golf tournament, but I will be back in form and ready to tear it up on Monday.

    Looks like I have missed some good workouts as well as a nice one on one with Sank. Impressive interview!

    Shaving my body hair would speed up my times and could possibly land me a gig being Mr. Clean. That sounds like a win/win.

    David you set the standard now. Don’t go back to the band. You’ll have withdrawals, but you have to power through.
