Tell us a little about you…I’m Adam Moore and I’ve been a health, fitness and nutrition enthusiast for the greater part of my adult life. I live with my wife, Andrea, and son, Remy, in the Seattle Metro area where I’ve had the opportunity to coach amazing people at several different boxes. I’m settling into a new role now as the Head Coach of Sasquatch CrossFit - Issaquah, where I hope to continue using my passion to help motivated individuals live happy, healthy lives.
You seem pretty rooted in the #PNW CrossFit Community. What do you love about it the most?The camaraderie of my fellow #PNW coaches and competitors is AMAZING. Coaches and gym owners I met dropping into boxes when I first moved to Seattle still remember me and we can have real conversations, about CrossFit or life, when we see each other even though it’s been YEARS! On the competitor side, it’s like being in a Fraternity again (except chugging protein instead of beer) whenever I go to local competitions. You goof off with people you’ve met before, cheer on your friends as well as people you just met that day, even if they’re competitors.
You’ve mentioned before that CrossFit fuels your competitive void that no other sport has been able to for you as an adult. How do you capitalize on this?
While I am one of those guys who’s always loved being in the gym, competitions are REALLY FUN! I think I may have actually broken into dance moves between max snatch attempts at my first individual competition! Even more than that, CrossFit competitions allow me to be a teammate. Team competitions are amazing in that you truly develop a brotherhood (and for my lady partners sisterhood?) that runs incredibly deep and that you would do anything for. When I step out on the competition floor I’m not looking for personal glory so much as I want to help my teammate kick ass so that we can celebrate our combined awesomeness. It’s led to such meaningful friendships that I believe will stand the test of time.
