September Member on the Move: Andrew Murray from CTF West Loop
What do you do from 9 to 5? I’m Director of Sales for a company that insures attorneys for legal malpractice. We work with law firms on risk and practice management and defend them in situations of allegations of wrongdoing.
When do you make time to workout? I enjoy working out and make it a priority, so I always find time which is consistently in the evenings. I generally go to the 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm classes. I’ve attempted to work out in the morning before work, then my alarm goes off and it’s just not happening. Still debating on another attempt.
What inspired you to get into CTF? Friend and CTF trainer, Sonya Latinovic, introduced me to CTF. I always worked out alone and at a slow pace, so I didn’t necessarily think I would become a regular, but I was into it from day one. Then meeting other trainers and learning their individual training and motivational styles was a game changer in my workout routine.
Tell us a fun fact about you! I was at a Wyclef concert and sitting front row. I claimed I knew the lyrics to House of Pain’s Jump Around which I don’t. He pulled me up on stage to sing it with him. I spent a good minute running from him all over the stage while he chased me around trying to hand the mic to me, then he gave up. Not a proud moment.
I like the variety in classes provided by different instructors.

I have been going to CTF for over two years now! I have gotten much stronger and in better shape than when I started. The teachers, classes, reservation functionality, events, etc. are all fantastic. Highly recommend.

Other than giving a free bottle water for your paid memberships. Have you thought of maybe doing something with the protein shakes?

Out of all the classes that are offered in the city, I feel like CTF has the best and challenging workouts.

Great general format- every class is total body with a sprinkle of strength, rowing.
In my experience the instructors, their format and selection of exercises to form a compete workout is key to a great workout. The instructors at CTF almost unanimously do this every single class.
Love the workouts. Love the instructors. Love most of the other gym-goers!
