Featured member of the Bizfit Nation May 2007: Ron Banks

Ron has been a member of the Bizfit nation for a little over one year. Last
year, at the age of 45, Ron hadn’t worked out since his college days
and had been putting on almost a pound a year. While skiing with Mike Bissaillon
and other friends last winter, Ron, who had always been an excellent skier,
could barely keep up. Later that evening, Ron began talking with Mike about
how disappointed he was with his performance on the slopes that day. Mike
promised, “If you commit to one year of training with me at Bizfit,
I promise that by next winter you’ll be skiing like you did when you
were in college.” Ron began his training at Bizfit later that week
and hasn’t looked back.

CrossFit Total (CFT)

Mike Bissaillon 900# (315# sq., 155# press, 430# deadlift)
Matt Dyson 780# (305# sq., 140# press, 335# deadlift)

 Both Matt and Mike completed these totals at the Albany East Coast Challenge.  We had both squated much more weight before the competition but not down to the depth that competition calls for.  Food for thought.

 

 

 

 

Testimonials

As a former trainer (Vertical Club, NYC '87-90), I thought I knew how to work out. Mike B showed me otherwise. He is single handedly responsible for allowing me to fully recover from two serious leg surgeries (reputured quad and knee) and get me in better shape than I've been in decades.  BizFit (CrossFit) is truly the sport of elite fitness and I can't thank Mike enough for his expertise and inspiration.  I'm writing this trenched in sweat from his Saturday morning class. Remember, the best work out in NYC is now  in Great Barrington!
