Dan Krogstad was selected as June's 'Better Than Yesterday' recipient. Dan is an extremely hard worker! As a retired farmer, his determination and GRIT is remarkable!
Why did you start CrossFit?
Like a lot of people, I was looking to make a change in my health, mainly to lose some weight and get into shape. Little did I know at the time what an impact CrossFit & the EHP community would have on my life.
Why do you continue CrossFit?
The reason I keep coming back is simple, the community - the people, the friendships & the continued support EVERYONE offers!
What has been your greatest achievement since joining EHP?
My greatest achievement has been the transformation of my body and most importantly my mindset. My life has changed in so many ways, it’s hard to explain in words! I’m able to do so many things that I would have never dreamed of 3 1/2 years ago. I am a stubborn man and with the right community and some great coaches I’m able to push through just about everything they throw at me. Positive self reflection & acknowledging accomplishments is something that has always been hard for me, but I can honestly say that I am proud of the accomplishments that I’ve made with EHP’s guidance.
How has your life changed since joining EHP?
The mind, body, & health gains that I have achieved have been truly life changing. For new athletes to EHP, CrossFit HQ actually did a short video on me and it would be something people should see and know a little more about my story.
Dan's story is remarkable. Dan gives 110% in nearly every workout and he is extremely determined to get a movement figured out. Dan listens to cues and makes corrections instantly. The progress Dan has made mentally and physically over the last three years is inspiring!
Congratulations, Dan! We are do proud of your transformation and determination!
