Who are you? What is something most people do not know about you?
My name is Eric Mongiello. I am 35 years old and have been married for 15 years to my wife Renee. I also have 3 kids. Aiden is 16, Bryce is 11, and Gabriella is 7 years old.
When I was 10 years old, I was shot in the right eye with a BB gun.
Why do you keep coming back to Bellhouse CrossFit?
I have been working out on and off since I was 14 years old. So I have been training now for 19 years! The only problem was that I never stayed consistent. Ever since I joined Bellhouse CrossFit two years ago, the gym has felt like family. We workout together. We hang out together. And we also go to church together.
Plus, I JUST LOVE THE PLACE!
What are the accomplishments you are most proud of since joining the gym?
I am most proud of my consistency with CrossFit. I am part of the 400 club at the gym. This means I have worked out at Bellhouse CrossFit over 400 times. I can do muscle ups now, and I did a team competition scoring second place.
How did you overcome some of the obstacles in starting your health journey?
I stay focused on my overall goal of showing up no matter what. I do not make excuses. I get to the gym and get work done.
What is your current focus or goal in the gym?
I want to continue staying consistent. I want to improve strength, hit my nutrition goals, and continue getting a consistent amount of sleep.
