What is your favorite food? My favorite food is pizza.

What is your favorite exercise? My favorite exercise is squatting.

Did you have any goals? How have you accomplished them? My main goal was to be stronger and in better shape for my senior basketball season. As the season is closing, I can say that working out has definitely improved my play on the court.

Why is working out important to you? What keeps you motivated to pursue health? Working out is important to me because it enables me to remain healthy and maintain my general health. My motivation comes from a desire to never let my fitness (or lack there of) keep me from being able to engage in physical activities.

What is one of your favorite or most memorable moments so far at Bodyshop Athletics X? My favorite memory so far has been hitting my max weight back-squatting. Another memorable moment was when I came in from running laps in the parking lot and Matt told me I looked like a model while running. *finger guns*

How would you describe your experience at Bodyshop Athletics X to a friend? The training staff has been incredibly useful in not only helping me reach my fitness goals, but they have also passed on knowledge to me to help understand how to achieve my goals. As well as being knowledgeable, the trainers have been very friendly and have made working out with them a great experience.

Is there anything you would like to mention? Jason has given me a much deeper understanding of the Marvel Universe than I previously possessed.

Banks Fryer is a good hardworking kid. He is a talented athlete, but his character speaks volumes. When training, Banks brings everything he has. It's been fun to watch his training translate to being one of the strongest, and most fit kids on the court. As a senior basketball player this year, he has taken the reigns as leader. His position of captain is not just labeled because he's a talented athlete, but he sets a Christ-like example for the other young men to follow. -J.W.
