Meet Nick Gogol

Nick is a Marine (retired)… I learned you don’t say former Marine since… “Once a Marine, always a Marine!”  Nick now works on Fort Campbell as an air traffic controller.  He takes a lot of ribbing from all the Army folks in the gym (mostly JP), but he takes it in stride and is never short on come-backs!  Nick is married to McCall – our gym management maestro – and we are SO DANG GLAD THEY walked through our doors when they did!

1.Describe yourself in 3 words.

-Motivated as Hell!

2. What is your spirit animal?

-Cheetah is my favorite animal.  But you would have to ask my wife what my spirit animal is, she would be able to come up with something closer to who I really am.

3. What do you do for a living?

-I am a Retired Marine, who is still pretty much institutionalized and miss it everyday!  But I work on Fort Campbell as an Air Traffic Controller.

4. What is your favorite CF workout? Why?

-Anything that I haven’t mastered yet.  If it is something I am good at, then I like the workout but I don’t really think about it much.  But when it comes to something I am not good at (HSPU’s, Double Under’s, Muscle Up’s, etc.) then I remember those workouts because I am pissed at myself for not being able to do them and try to work harder to get there.  So anything I am not good at are my favorite workouts, because it makes me want to come back and get more to master them!

5. What is your favorite cheat meal and where would you go to get it?

-Pizza!!!  My favorite is Papa John’s

6. What is it you are most passionate about?

-Exercising and spending time with my wife and kids.

7. Dogs or Cats? Why?

-Cats, they are easier

8. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

-When I was a kid I wanted to be a Police Man
