Athlete of the Month: Mike Ferguson

Mike is definitely a force to be reckoned with. He always come to class with a positive attitude and a goal in mind. He always pushes himself, is encouraging to others, and is an all around supportive athlete to our entire 6S community.
Mike has been an integral part of 6S for almost a year and a half. Throughout that time, he’s participated in many of our events, not only on the functional fitness side, but also the powerlifting and weightlifting side. He constantly strives to better himself and is an absolute pleasure to have in any class.

If you ask Mike at any time what goal he’s working towards, he always has an answer. Whether it’s gymnastics, weightlifting, or running, there’s always something he’s striving to accomplish. He’s an inspiration and we’re so lucky to have him a part of our 6S community!

What is one thing people may be surprised to learn about you?

I’ve been on 16 cruises, and I can’t wait to go on more when this pandemic is over!

Why did you start functional fitness training?

A friend mentioned there was a boot camp class at a CrossFit gym out in Leslieville back in 2013. I signed up and after the first day I was hooked and haven’t looked back. I’ve made life long friends and so many acquaintances, and I’ve never been stronger.

The CanEast Games was postponed in 2020, but if it is on next year, that will be my biggest fitness goal in 2021. As a result of the pandemic, I’m farther away than I’d like to be, but there is still 7 months to train and get stronger.
