Meet John Lipp… Or as I call him “John Lipp-Uizamo”
John has been with HPCF for a little over 1 year now. He came to us with a problem: feeling old, tired and rundown – Aches and pains, losing mobility and not wanting to grow up!
When John first started, we couldn’t do much overhead work because of his lack of mobility. But John kept plugging away, listening to Coaches who told him to work on Mobility to free up his shoulders. John is now able to snatch and overhead squat!
John is also a staple to the 3pm class and is present almost every single day – unless he’s golfing or fishing. John has also been an awesome class-mate to his 3pm crew, or any class he attends. Coaches routinely remark on his encouraging personality where he refuses to let any member or fellow class mate to be left behind.
Awesome work John!
