August Athlete of the Month - Luke PeÃ±a
Published August 1, 2017
My name is Luke Peña, I’m 39 years old and single (and ready to mingle). I’ve been working in the Defense Industry for almost 10 years. I’m a Former Marine and dad to my two awesome daughters, Kathryn and Olivia. I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, fitness to include 12-ounce curls and laughing at my own jokes.
My fitness background consists of wrestling, weightlifting, and Marine Corps PT.
The first three months were rough! I came in thinking I was a tough guy, only to find out that I was actually a little b!tch. Once I found my physical strength increasing, it was the mental strength that was harder to maintain while trying to get thru the WODS…especially after lifting.
I enjoy the camaraderie most here at OCF. Everyone is warm, friendly and outgoing, the coaches really want to help you out, It’s like a family here (sniffle).
Some goals would be getting one damn muscle-up! I’m right friggin there! C’mon already, Geez!.... I’d like to get some lung capacity back so I don’t gas out during runs, burpees etc…….Ummm start paying more attention to diet…..maybe try a comp at some point?
