Member Spotlight: Scott Ogden

For a good, funny time, call Scott. 

 

Q: Why did you decide to get into CrossFit? 

A: Two reasons: I got divorced earlier this year and have needed a self-esteem bump. Improving my outward appearance seemed like a quick shot in the arm, so here we are. 

The second is that I recently moved to Austin and wanted to make friends. Gerry kept on and on about how great you guys were, so I figured I’d give you a shot. So, if you haven’t met me yet, come on over and give me a howdy during a workout. We can hang out and I’ll bake you things.

 

Q: Do you feel like your life has improved since joining Renew? 

A: Yes, I feel like my life has improved. I have more muscles and I get to spend quality time with the people I love before I go home for the day.

 

Q: What is the most useless talent you have? 

A: I am fluent in Japanese. It’s actually an extremely useful talent, but I never use it, so it’s completely useless to me.

 

Q: What is the dumbest way you’ve been injured? 

A: When I worked at Cold Stone Creamery in high school, I slipped and fell and passed out because I banged my elbow real hard. I guess I hit my head when I passed out, so they left me waiting strapped to a board for 5 hours in the ER before they saw me for 5 minutes and said I was good to go. It wasn’t dumb because I did something dumb, it was dumb how quickly it escalated. 

 

Q: What is the most ridiculous purchase you have made to date? 

A: A timeshare. Not even once, man.

 

Sometimes you win, sometimes you buy a timeshare. Never the mind, because if you’re on the market for a new friend or personal baker, Scott’s your guy. We’re sure glad Gerry pressured you into joining, Scott! You’re a joy to be around. 

And you may never leave.
