First up we have Calvin Davis!

1. What is a highlight for you from Regionals?

A highlight was Jon overcoming a HUGE MENTAL obstacle in the overhead squat. When he had tried several times and missed and we talked and I told him that he has to believe in himself, I know he can do it, all the CDR fans believe in him also. At that moment I saw that he believed and he went out there and did it!! I was so proud I couldn’t even think straight!!

2. What keeps you motivated to train so hard at the box?

I love training hard and seeing what my body can do. A continual strive to get better keeps me interested. I also love training with Jacob (he is awesome).

3. What max lift would you like to see at the Games?

I would like to see a max clean of some sort. Clean and jerk or a straight clean.

4. What are some of your favorite movements? Least?
Favorite movements are anything heavy or wall balls and rowing (they’re geared a little better for the taller folk). My least favorite is I don’t really have one.

5. What are you most looking forward to at the Games? Is there anything you are nervous about?

I’m most looking forward to looking up in the stands and seeing all the CDR members cheering for us and so excited to be there. I’m also very excited to be with my team and just have a fun time together.

6. Favorite piece of Reebok swag?

Favorite Reebok swag is new shoes.

7. What’s the key to the mental game during competitions?

The key to the mental game is everything. You have to be able to adapt on the fly. When your plan gets changed all the sudden you have to be able to keep your focus and do your work (pick up bar when tired).
8. What’s your favorite part about being a member of Team CDR?

Favorite part about being on the team is representing the most amazing people ever. The CDR community is truly built from so many different types of wonderful, caring and loving people it is truly an honor to go out and represent in a world class competition.

9. What’s something fun or interesting about you that most people at CDR dont know about you?

Something fun or interesting that others don’t know about me is that I love getting pedicures:))

Now we hear from Rachel Davis!

1. What is a highlight for you from Regionals?

Coming from behind with Calvin on our partner wod, lunging towards a massive crowd of screaming CDR members, and making out when we crossed the finish line!

2. What keeps you motivated to train so hard at the box?

I’m motivated to train so hard because I love my teammates. I am able to train so hard because of help from my family. My mom and my sister, Hannah, are always so willing to love on our boys when we have team practices.

3. What max lift would you like to see at the Games?
I would love to see a max back squat, I would be going for 280!
4. What are some of your favorite movements? Least?
Fav moves- handstand push ups, weighted lunges, box jumps
Least fav-rope climbs, wall balls, running, rowing
5. What are you most looking forward to at the Games? Is there anything you are nervous about?

I’m looking forward to enjoying the experience with my team, no matter the outcome, we are going to have a good time! I also look forward to seeing the massive sea of red CDR shirts in the stands. Hearing the cheering and seeing everyone is one of my favorite parts of competing.

I’m nervous about the surprise movements or equipment they might reveal to us when we get there.

6. Which male and female do you think are going to win the Games?
Rich Froning and Talayna Fortunado
7. Favorite piece of Reebok swag?
Favorite piece was the jacket they gave us, but I gave it to my mom for all  her help with my boys at the games.
8. What’s the key to the mental game during competitions?
My key to mental games is focusing on the strategies we have planned and speaking postively to my self…”you can do this, you will do this!”
9. What’s your favorite part about being a member of Team CDR?
My favorite part of being on the team is that I truly enjoy my teammates and they are all such a blessing to me. I love Sarah and Teresa like they are my sisters so getting to compete with these girls makes the experience even better:) I also LOVE the amazing support of our CDR community, the team wouldn’t be the same without each and every person showing up.
10. What’s something fun or interesting about you that most people at CDR dont know about you?
I like to cook gourmet meals out of my favorite magazine CookFresh. I wear workout clothes 90% of the time, but when I do get dressed I’m a girly-girl and like to wear 6 inch heels and lots of jewelry.
