Lindsey Frazier has been a member for over three years, a consistent friendly face in any class and always a joy for any coach to work with. Over the last month, we have seen some serious work put in from Lindsey, turning heads, and making her an easy choice for this honor. It’s not always about big numbers and record boards, and Lindsey has shown what solid effort and the right attitude can result in. From being sharp on her nutrition goals, to hitting an accidental 5R back squat PR of her old 1R, swinging the 88# KB, and ultimately being an incredible and helpful human in and out of the gym, we are very excited to see Lindsey recognized for her hard work, and see what the future holds for her, as she continues to achieve her goals!

How old are you, and where are you from? 
33 years old. From Oakley, CA (a small city in the Bay Area)

What do you do for work?
I’m a neuropsychologist. I work with people with neurologic injuries in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital.

What do you do for fun outside of P360?
I love to travel, explore, and have new experiences. I’m a big fan of hiking and yoga, although I don’t do them as often as I would like. Day drinking and beach days are high up on my list.

How has P360 affected your life? 
In so many ways! First and most obvious, I met my love and future husband (Pete Gross) at a P360 social event. Second, I have met some amazing people that I am honored to call friends. Third, the workouts have corrected muscle imbalances that contributed to chronic pain after a car accident, and I’ve been able to get off pain meds. And fourth, all that I’ve learned about what I can do with my body and mind translates into how I live my life daily. There’s probably more, but those are the big ones.

What are your favorite, and least favorite exercises? 
I love Turkish get-ups and my new favorite is the Snatch. I dislike hang cleans and despise running. My running face is a mix of anger and sorrow. Despite hating running, I purposefully do classes with running in them because I know running is good for me and I will never do it any other time unless running from a monster/volcano eruption/any other non-likely reason.

What is the hardest thing you have done, physically, in the gym?
Bridge runs- I once vomited on top of the bridge. True story.

What is your most proud achievement at P360?
This! I would never have imagined I would be nominated for a P360 member of the month, especially since I’m not in any barbell clubs. It is the highest honor.

What is a hidden talent of yours? 
I’m especially good at organizing and packing cars for trips. You’d be amazed at how much shit you can fit in a car if you organize it properly.

What is an embarrassing fact most people don’t know about? 
I didn’t realize cucumbers were pickles until just a few years ago. I thought there must be a pickle plant or tree (doh!)

If money was no concern, what would be your dream job? 
A movie set scout. You’d get to travel around the world and meet the locals.

What is the biggest overall improvement you’ve made, since joining P360?
My 135# squat. I had a back injury years ago and it’s always feels like a sensitive spot/exercise to carry that much weight. Also, moving up on the pull-up bands…I think I’m close to an unassisted pull up!

What is the most valuable piece of coaching you’ve received? 
There are so many gems every day from all coaches that it’s so hard to come up with just one. But, I think I’d say Coach Julianne telling me that I can lift more weight. She notices my strength even when I don’t, and that is a constant reminder that my mind is a bigger barrier than my body.

Which public figure or celebrity would you put in the dunk tank? 
Besides the obvious Trump and a fair amount of Congress, who could use a lot more thank dunk tank, I’d say Jenny McCarthy needs a good dunk.

What’s your favorite place to eat in San Diego? 
I tend to eat at the same places usually out of convenience, but I think I’d choose Harney Sushi in Old Town.

What famous person (alive or not) would you  most like to have a drink with and what would you buy them? 
Jon Stewart. I have a major crush on him. The combination of his wit and compassion is so rare. I’d buy him a real fruity drink, like a strawberry pina colada.

If you had one movie on a deserted island what would it be?
The Shawshank Redemption

What’s a funny story from your childhood? 

I nearly got kicked out of swim lessons when I was three. I hated getting in the water because it was cold, and I would run away every single time they tried to put me in the water. They’d have to chase after me and I’d get pretty far away before they caught me. My mom was so embarrassed. One day, I just jumped in. Then, they couldn’t get me out of the water!

What’s your favorite naughty food? 
I have a major sweet tooth, so anything sweet. I could do FroYo or baked bear for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

If you could travel to any point in the past, where would you go? 
I’d love to go to the US before it was settled and just see the land the way it was.

What’s your favorite thing about training at P360?
The community. The people here: the owners, coaches, and members make this place one of a kind.

What is your biggest goal moving into 2017? 
This may sound odd, but I’ve never been interested in the barbell clubs. Not because I have anything against them, but because what Dave has talked about on podcasts and in his writing about being an all around athlete. That really resonated with me and it’s how I have focused my gym goals. Now, I actually do want to test the limits and see where I’m at. Maybe I’d even make a club or two! Also unassisted pull-ups!

Dave Draizen is a long time member who has gotten the coaches attention with his dedication and hard work in June. Dave has been pushing himself into Benchmark workouts, earning a spot on the “Biathlon” leaderboard in PB, working diligently on improving his mobility by attending every single week, and seeking out coaching in every class to get better while applying what he learns. As someone that’s always been very friendly, funny and welcoming to share a bar with anyone, and help push those around him, we are very happy to recognize Dave for the obvious excellent hard work we’ve seen. We’re excited to see where his progress and attitude continue to take him!

How old are you, and where are you from? 

26 1/2 give or take a few. Born in Nueva York, grew up in NorCal, lived in SD for 16yrs.

What do you do for work?

Make people happy. Not like a massage parlor style happy but with adult recreational sporting activities and social events.

What do you do for fun outside of P360? 

Play an excessive amount of beach volleyball despite a sheer lack of skill, go to every country concert I can (been a fan ever since I was a little baby child) and perfect my comedy routine at the expense of others.

How has P360 affected your life? 

My parents started talking to me again. Juuuuuust kidding, they still do not. I feel a lot stronger, I am not embarrassed to wear a bikini in public anymore and I can get to volleyballs a lot faster enabling me to shank them in new directions I thought not possible.

What are your favorite, and least favorite exercises? 

Fav is deadlifts because every coach checks me out while I’m doing them. Mostly because they use me as a “what not to do” example but I still like the attention. Least fav is cleans. I didn’t like that word before P360 and I despise it even more now. Due to a severe lack of mobility these are very uncomfortable and I feel like they get added to the schedule after I sign up for each class.

What is the hardest thing you have done, physically, in the gym? 

Getting into level 1 frog club. I mentally prepared to die because I assume that is what happens if you miss from that height. It boggles my mind that people go higher than that with what appears to be no effort. Eubank is like a leaping Gazelle with not a care in the world. I am deeply afraid of the tall box because I can see straight through it all the way to hell. When I got my level 1, I stacked fifteen 45lbers on the shortest box and had Paramedics with trampolines all on sides in case of emergency. It’s that easy.

What is your most proud achievement at P360? 

This one is really hard to choose as there are so many but it has to be Level 4 bear naming club! That was a tough fought victory with a lot of great names out there. During the final online vote I sat there refreshing the Facebook page over and over like “Mark Zuckerberg” at the end of Social Network checking to see if his girlfriend accepted his friend request. When all was said and done I knew my submission had won cause I emailed Dave and he confirmed. This was a very slow day at work. Other notable mentions: Dubbed top 5 least mobile in the gym by Coach Julianne, shout out in the podcast followed by this moment here!

What is a hidden talent of yours?  

I am incredibly good at making bad first impressions.

What is an embarrassing fact people don’t know about you? 

I don’t really embarrass too easily although I am not a huge fan of my tattoo which is why if you all compare stories you will probably each have a different one as to why I got it.

If money was no concern, what would be your dream job? 

Rock star. I use to play in a punk rock band in Junior High and High School. I always wanted to be a famous musician. If you look not very hard you can find one of my old bands on the line.

What is the biggest overall improvement you’ve made, since joining P360? 

I show up on time to class….most the time.

What is the most valuable piece of coaching you’ve received? 

“Whatever you’re doing, just stop.” Coach Anonymous. Also, walk before you run. That has been a huge help to me from when I started and got injured all the time. Granted at any one time I am suffering 6-8 injuries which I refuse to take a break and let heal. Use me as a cautionary tale.

Which public figure or celebrity would you put in the dunk tank? 

Everyone in the Big Bang Theory. How is that show so popular?!

What’s your favorite place to eat in San Diego?  

Breakfast = Konos/Konitos (see you soon Joe!), Brunch = GTC (RIP), Lunch = Luche Libre, Second Lunch = Phils, Dinner = Cantina Mayahuel (Tuesday and Friday Mole!!!), Second dinner = Tweety Thai and RK Sushi. I could eat sushi and thai for every meal and never get tired of either.

What famous person (alive or not) would you most like to have a drink with and what would you buy them? 

Justin Timberlake. I think he and I would become BFF’s and I could join his entourage. Maybe we would form a new boy band called Boys R Us….sigh, one day

If you had one movie on a deserted island what would it be? 

Princess Bride, duh

What’s a funny story from your childhood? 

One day I was riding my bike to school. Across the street was another kid walking the opposite direction and mean mugging the crap outta me. Not to be stared down I held his gaze to the very end. And by very end I mean right into the bed of a parked truck in front of me. I broke my bike, was in a ton of pain and the kid was laughing at me but I didn’t break my stare so in the end who really won? Inertia, that’s who won.

What’s your favorite naughty food? 

bananas?….am I reading this question right?

If you could travel to any point in the past, where would you go?

Middle Earth. All they did was eat and drink. Sounds amazing.

What’s your favorite thing about training at P360? 

I love that it is a quick full body workout. I am a busy man with a lot of Netflix to binge so I value my time. I also like to view most of the workouts as a competition. You don’t know it but I am kicking your butt at Tier Incognito! And you over there don’t know it but I am a lap and a half behind you and not very happy about it but I’ll still do sit ups with you after and then high five you…cause I’m a team player. Don’t mind the grammar there. Lastly, I love the community at P360. Everyone is very supportive and friendly for the most part. You feel like you belong no matter what class you go to. Speaking of, when’s the next P360 pool party and/or prom?!

What is your biggest goal moving into 2017?

Going into 2017 I really really want to get picked for Member of the Month (fingers crossed). Outside of that all my goals pertain to being better at volleyball since it is one of three things always on my mind. I’m a simple man (that seems redundant). So jumping higher and burst speed. I’ll be doing a lot of squats.
