Member of the Month – April

Sean Curry celebrated his 4 year Craicaversary with us this past weekend. I might be wrong but I believe his the first person to be awarded Member of the Month for the second time!

Sean is a testimony to what can be accomplished through consistency over time.


What made you join CRAIC and how did you first hear about us?

I saw Craic while driving thru Dedham Square one day. I saw the sign outside and saw people doing these crazy workouts inside and thought I had to check it out!

What was your first workout with us?

I wish I kept better notes then. All I have written down is Monday 3/28/11 run 400 m 10 squats @65lbs and 20 pull-ups and it took me 16:05 to do it!

What habits have you adopted since joining CRAIC that you feel have lead to your success?

The main habit I adopted since joining Craic is the Paleo Diet. I feel like there is a direct correlation between the diet and how it affects my workouts. I also gave up soda completely and only drink one cup of coffee a day black of course!

Do you polish your abs regularly?

Yes I polish my abs once a day.

Is there any situation you’ve had to deal with in your everyday life that made you grateful for your results?

Im grateful for my results because I feel more confident in everyday situations. Plus at work Im not winded going up a flight of stairs like most of my coworkers.

My proudest accomplishment/s in training so far is/are:

Being able to do most workouts RX. I’m always making PR’s and just this week I finally was able to string together 4 kipping hand stands pushups unbroken.

Some current training goals are:

Getting better at over head squats and learning butterfly pull-ups.

This month’s question? Where in the world would you love to visit and why?

I would love to visit Itlay. I hear its beautiful there and food is outstanding! Plus its very warm there!

What advice would you give to someone who is just starting with us? How can they make the most of their time while at Craic?

My advice for new people is to take their time and learn the movements, especially Olympic lifts. Don’t worry about being embarrassed or frustrated you’ll be lifting heavy in no time.

They can make the most of their time at Craic by showing up! You won’t get results by not showing up.
