April Athlete of the Month: Brian Confer

Congratulations to Brian Confer on being selected the April Athlete of the Month! Here’s his nomination:

Strength.  Not only is it one of the foundational tenets of Warrior Training, but it is also a tenet synonymous with April’s HWTC Athlete of the Month —  Brian “The Incredible Hulk” Confer.

 Brian was one of our first athletes to complete the on-ramp sequence, and has since consistently shown a measurable commitment to the HWTC.  His exemplary positive attitude, ability to motivate his fellow athletes during workouts, and aspirational  dedication in refining his technique have made quite an impression on the coaching staff.

 We laud Brian for his efforts, and look forward to seeing continued results from him in the future as he works towards his fitness goals.  We also look forward to seeing him in “The Avengers 2.”

Here’s some more about Brian from our Q&A:

Hometown: Kittanning, PA

1. What do you do at Hanscom AFB?
Executive Officer to C3I&N PEO

2. What got you interested in the HWTC?
My brother.

3. What motivates you to keep coming to the HWTC (What are your goals)?
To consistently outperform Reyn and other mere mortals so that they may feel bad about themselves. 

4. Making any progress to accomplishing those goals?

5. What are your interests/hobbies?
Anything to do with sports and the outdoors. 

6. What is your favorite WOD/exercise so far?
Anything with power movements.

7. What is your least favorite WOD/exercise so far?
I’ve loved them all!
