Alamo 180 Athlete of the Month: Manny Iruegas

How old are you and when did you join Alamo 180?I am 28 years old and I joined Alamo 180 around June 2019. 

Why do you CrossFit? For the Gainzz haha!! More importantly, I do CrossFit to be the healthiest I can be and keep an overall physically active lifestyle.  

What is your favorite workout? Least favorite?My favorite workouts are the high intensity, all or nothing workouts. I really enjoy the support i get from my coaches and the class energy. My least favorite workouts are when I have to workout alone without the motivation from others.

What is something people don’t know about you?I’ve been employed at USAA for 3 years. I currently work in the bank department, specifically dealing with military benefits and the service member civil relief act. Every day is a new learning experience and I really enjoy my time there.

Hobbies outside of fitness? My favorite hobby is playing drums. I’ve been a drummer for 15+ years. I love dropping some sick beats!

What are you training for right now? Another competition! I participated in my first Crossfit competition about a month ago and I had a blast! Aside from that, I’m training to beat Coach Xamara in double unders..

Favorite cheat meal? 
I loveeee desserts and pizza! My go to desserts would either be cookies or brownies and for pizza the meat trio is my favorite. Is beer a meal?

 What advice would you give to someone just starting out with CrossFit?The first days are honestly the hardest and the easiest time to give up. Consistency is one of the biggest keys to accomplishment. Eventually, CrossFit becomes addicting and a great habit! You will amaze yourself!
