Hey fans… meet Troy Andreasen of Crossfit Allectus! He’s from Alexandria, MN and GameDay Mankato was his first CrossFit competition.
Troy, what made you start competing in this sport?
I started doing CrossFit about 1 year ago. I started because my wife was doing it, and I always loved lifting weights so I thought it would be a good fit! I’ve competed in triathlons before as well, so this was definitely a change from that.
What do you think about the community?
It’s very cool! I love the people, that’s the best part! In our gym, we have great coaches, and just the whole atmosphere is fun to be around.
What’s your favorite workout or movement of all time?
I don’t think I even know the answer to that! I like them all, my favorite lifting movement is bench press and we actually don’t do that very much in workouts.
What’s your favorite meal prep?
I follow the macro stacks plan now and that really helps me figure out how much to eat and it’s all tracked. It’s all mostly whole foods like chicken, steak, rice, and all that kind of stuff.
What is your favorite thing about competition day?
The atmosphere! I haven’t been out on the floor yet, so I’m excited to get out there this afternoon. I just love the competitive piece of it, and even prior to the event you get a month or two to prep for it. This was my first CrossFit competition, and I really enjoyed it!
