JUNE MEMBERS OF THE MONTH

We’re back with another edition of Performance360 Members of the Month.

As always, the member of the month award is decided by our coaches getting together and nominating who stood out to us each in the areas of attitude, effort and performance. We take pride in our votes and take the handing out of member of the month quite seriously. To win it means an individual stood out above hundreds of other hard working folks and is truly deserving of the honor.

Coach Will: Kat Shaw. “She asks awesome questions in the walk throughs and in class.”
Coach Lenny: Chris Boyd. “Humble hard worker, always has a purpose.”
Coach Matt: Tanner Johnson. “Quietly goes about his business very hard, sneaky very good on the rower.”

NOAH COSBY

Noah has always been one of our top performing members, regularly topping the leaderboard for challenges and excelling in strength for his body weight. However, over the past few months, Noah has noticeably been making an increased effort above and beyond his capabilities when it comes to coaching and seeking advice. He’s applying some new lifts to build his strength, asking great questions and relying on coaching to help further his results. His overall natural athleticism and work ethic have combined with improved coachability and we’re incredibly excited to see where he takes his physical ability.

Get to Know Noah

Age, where are you from?
34 – originally from Salem, IL

What do you do for work?
VP of Sales for FortuneBuilders, INC

What do you do for fun?
As crazy as it may sound, one of the best parts of my day is going to the gym. I really love the people and the challenge every day. When I’m not at work or at the gym I focus on my family life. I have 2 daughters so Disney princess games have become a regular part of my routine. When I need to relax and recharge, my wife and I will take overnight trips on the weekends and leave the kids with my parents. I’ve been taking piano lessons for a few years and that’s been a small creative outlet for me. If I can squeeze it in between Frozen and the Little Mermaid, I’ll also play a little golf.

Describe how Performance360 has affected your daily life.
P360 makes it easy for me to keep fitness in my weekly routine. I feel healthier than ever. I am getting better workouts in because I don’t have to think about what to do in the gym. I just have to show up. I’m a big fan of the evening classes because they create a buffer between work and home. I can clear my head and by the time I get home I don’t carry anything from work with me.

Favorite and least favorite exercise?
Favorite – Squats – I love squat days
Least Favorite – high rep KB swings

What’s the most valuable bit of coaching you’ve received at P360?
Early on there was a lot of focus from everyone on the depth of my squat. I was coached to get more depth very consistently and now I feel have really good range of motion and it’s helped me get stronger.

What is your most proud achievement at P360 so far?
Winning the last P360 Olympics.

What’s the hardest thing you’ve done physically at the gym?
5 min amrap of DB Snatch w/ 80# That wrecked me.

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

Embarrassing fact most people don’t know?
In 4th grade I won a Halloween contest by dressing up like a girl. I still don’t know why my parents didn’t steer me in another direction there.

Hidden talent most people don’t know?
I can do the worm.

If you could teleport to any point in the past, where would you go?
1950 so I could get to know my grandpa in his prime. He was a WW2 hero, entrepreneur, and a judge. But he died when I was young so I really didn’t get to know him that well. I’d definitely appreciate learning from him now.

Favorite naughty food?
Rocky’s & Baked Bear B2B

What’s the biggest overall improvement you have made since joining?
Clean & Jerk – I’m stronger here now than I was in college.

What was your favorite cartoon growing up?
Teenage mutant ninja turtles.

Famous person you’d most like to have a drink with, and what drink would you buy them?
Jerry Seinfeld – a Manhattan on the rocks

What’s a funny story from your childhood?
6th grade – skipping school with my girlfriend and planning to spend the day at my house. Didn’t realize when you don’t show up for school they call your parents. My mom was smart enough to ask if she was also absent. She sent a police officer to our house to get us. We tried hiding in the closet but he found us. Arrived at the school during recess so everyone got to see the cop car pull up and the police officer escort both of us inside.

Which public figure or celebrity would you like to put in a dunk tank?
Christian Laettner

You have one movie to take with you on a desert island. What is it?
Rocky IV

This is so awesome, guys. Very honored. I’d hoped I’d make this list some day. Thanks for creating an awesome place for all of us.

Tabitha Turner

Tabitha has been pushing herself rather quietly, hitting L1 BB almost on accident. She is always quietly working hard no matter what the workout is, whether it’s a 5×5 strength or a high rep timed challenge. She is always working as hard as she can without complaint. Although quiet in class, Tabitha is incredibly coachable and has a fantastic attitude toward every single person.
