Box Brief:
Congrats to Clinton for being the December Member of the Month at Apollo! Scroll down to learn more about Clinton.


Congrats on being our November Member of the Month!!! This is one of the most prestigious titles anyone has been given. What is another title of yours that means a lot, and why?
One of the most prestigious titles you can be given I believe comes from the good Lord above and that is the title of being a parent. It is a title given when you bring a life into this world which carries a huge amount of responsibility. Once given it can never be taken away!!!

You are a police officer for Metro. How has CrossFit helped you do your job?
When I decided to become a police officer, I knew fitness was a huge part in being successful. If I was ever to get into a physical altercation with a suspect I never wanted to lose. No matter what you always win! Thank you, Apollo, for the success I have had with staying one step ahead of the suspects!!

You have been a member at Apollo for 5+ years. First of all, thank you for sticking with us! We are lucky to have you! What keeps you coming back?
It is the atmosphere that has been created at Apollo. Everyone is like family. You can come in have a great workout, talk to some amazing people, destress, and do it all again the next day. It is an awesome feeling!!

During Christmas break we always see an influx of college students in our classes. You always seem to enjoy when they are around. What is it about this youth that gets you fired up?
Well for me I always enjoy working out with the young adults that attend CrossFit. At times you need to be pushed and by working out with young adults I find myself pushing harder during the workouts. I have that mindset if they can do it, I can do it!! Stay fit!!

If you could create a workout for everyone at Apollo to do, what would it be?
“Simple Practice”
20 Minute AMRAP
5 Power Cleans
5 Push Press
10 Sit-ups
10 push-ups
15 Air Squats
15 Kettlebell Swings

Would you rather go back to age 5 with everything you know now or know now everything your future self would learn? Why?
The country singer Alan Jackson has a great song “The Older I Get”. The lyrics of the song says it all for me. I would rather know now everything your future self would learn!
The older I get
The more I think
You only get a minute, better live while you’re in it
Cause it’s gone in a blink
And the older I get
The truer it is
It’s the people you love, not the money and stuff
That makes you rich
And if they found a fountain of youth
I would not take a drop and that’s the truth
Funny how it feels I’m just getting to my best years yet!!!!

If you could go on “America’s Got Talent”, what would you showcase?
America’s Got Talent!! I would never make that show!! No hidden talents to showcase!!
