Five Questions with Coach Michael Gregory
Favorite workout or favorite movement?
Barbell Hang Power Clean. I love to move heavy weight with power and speed. Also HandStand and HandStand Walks. This was the scariest movement for me to learn how to do and something I didn’t believe I would ever be able to do. I mastered it in my late 20’s
Spaghetti Squash and Chicken Sausage. I stopped eating spaghetti around 20 years old for health reasons and it was about 7 or 8 years before I discovered spaghetti squash – this made me really happy to regain one of my childhood favorite meals!
When you’re not coaching, what are you doing? Favorite activities?
I really love to find time to hang out with my clients. Sometimes is lunch, happy hours, hanging out on Lake Austin and Lake Travis. I love to hang get to the local water holes in Austin. 3 to 5 times a week I am at Zilker, Barton Springs, the Bull Creek swimming hole on the Green Belt, Mckinney Falls State park and anywhere else I can drive in an hour time frame to get to nature!
Music gets me hype for training… I heard this over the weekend and I will probably listen to it 100 X in the next 2 week (Dytto X Watch the Duck https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md702Xo0kKI&feature=share )
