MEET OUR MEMBERS – STEVE ROOKER

Meet Saint City North member Steve Rooker. Steve turned his back to the wind and gave CrossFit a go. He showed that if you never try you’ll never know what you’re capable of and that the burden of never trying is heavier than what the barbell will ever be. Steve, we are so glad you gave CrossFit a go and are a part of the Saint City Community.

MEET PAUL GRANDBOIS

When I was 27, I started to compete in MMA. I was always a fan of the sport, and at the time it was starting to become more and more popular. More gyms were popping up, and you could find an event to compete in if you knew where to find one. At this time, I wasn’t a mixed martial artist, but I could box so I figured that was a start. I always wanted to be a boxer since I was young, but for some reason I never chased it. Now I was ready to put in the time. After a few years of training, I finally had found a club and a team I really felt at home with. I went on to compete on and off for the next 5 years. At this time, I had started a family with my then-girlfriend, now-wife. We moved away from where my team was but I still competed in different events. It started getting harder and harder to balance family life, work, and still make time for training. I was getting older and at the level I was getting up to, if you weren’t training every day it was harder to keep up to the young talent that was on the rise. I had to make the decision to walk away from a sport that I loved. I would still get phone calls from different promoters asking if I could take a fight. It took everything in me to turn them down because I love to compete, but in my heart I knew that walking away was the best choice for me and my family.
