Every training community has its cornerstone members. The humble individuals who hold the community together and train the house down! Justin Murry is one of these characters. The kind of guy who sets the standard in training intensity and lifts the entire group with the example he sets. What makes Muzzy exceptional is that he is always the 1st guy to walk around, post training and pick the crew up off the ground with words of encouragement and the clap of his hands.
Everyone deserves a positive training environment where they can be inspired, be encouraged and supported to reach their true potential. Our March Shaker of the Month is the kind of guy who makes sure that the Shake UP is a place that our members love to be involved in!
We recently caught up with Justin Murry to chat about Bear crawls and mental toughness…
So Muzz, tell us a little about yourself?
I am 39 years old, love the outdoors, love sports and am really enjoying the Shake UP community! I have a 12 year old son named Kye and he and I mess about with basketball, league…anything outdoors really.
How long have you been a member at the Shake UP?
Um..about 12 months. Time flies when you are having fun! Great social scene and a lot of great friends here which have made these last 12 months a blast!
So what have you achieved over these last 12 months?
I have gained some serious fitness and really developed my mental toughness with this type of training. One of the things that I want to continue building is that psychological strength. I have done a few triathlons and I know that this never give up attitude is a key factor in succeeding.
What are your current health and fitness goals?
I’d like to build some more muscle and continue to increase the functional strength. Maybe even a few more triathlons…
What keeps you coming back to TSU?
Um.. A lot of it is the social side of things. I have some great mates in this community. The banter and jokes make the training sessions more fun. We get together outside of here to have a few drinks, compete in triathlons and things like that. I guess that keeps me coming back.
Probably bear crawls! (this interview took place immediately after Muzz dominated our Bear Crawl and Burp workout in a very competitive 13min 35sec!)
Our Shaker of the month is rewarded with a very generous gift card valued at $43.50 from our awesome sponsors at Zarraffa’s Pacific Pines. Thanks so much to the wonderful Zarraffa’s crew for the continued support to our local community.
