Have You Met Omar

  • How long have you been a member of Nela Athletics?

I have been a member of NELA athletics for 3 and a half years.

  • What’s your favorite CrossFit/Ignite achievement?

I joked with a coach when I first started that I’d throw a party when I got my first kipping pullup, so I’d have to go with my first unassisted kipping pullup.

  • How do you think you have benefited most from Nela Athletics?

I have definitely benefitted from NELA athletics the most by becoming a part of the community.

  • How has your life changed from when your first started to now. Can be physically, mentally, emotionally.

Joining NELA pushed me out of my comfort zone. Where in the past I would’ve been the type of person that popped in earbuds and worked out alone. I now have become more comfortable being with my group of friends.

  • What are your hobbies or activities you do enjoy outside of CrossFit?

I love doing things with music. I enjoy concerts, though I don’t go to as many as I used to, and I dj from time to time for fun.

  • What is one thing people don’t know about you?
I was a lead singer in a hip hop/metal band for about 5 years. A friend of mine asked me if I’d fill in as singer in a high school talent show in 11th grade, for some crazy reason I said yes though I’d never done anything like that in my life! We went on to play many local spots and even recorded a few tracks, this was way before SoundCloud lol.
  • If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, which song would you pick?

Impossible! I have different songs based on mood, or what emotions I’m trying to bring about or create.
