You are the CFU Member of the Month. Congratulations! What’s a day in the life of Joe Hansen like?

When I’m not traveling, it’s CrossFit in the morning, then off to work. After work, I am either coaching Jake’s football team or going to one of my kids’ activities in the evening.

You can have a pet *anything*. Anything goes. What’s your go to?

Definitely a dog! They are always happy to see you and they are loyal.

Would you rather have the ability to be invisible for a day or read minds for a day? Why?

Read minds…It would be so interesting to know what people are really thinking about!

 What is your best or favorite memory at CFU?

July 4th, 2016…my first day! It was a hero workout that began with an 800 meter run. I came out of the gates hot, really hot! By mid-workout I had to walk outside and dry-heave. Apparently, Colten and Tausha gave each other a look and started laughing at me as I was dying.

Later that afternoon, I realized that I needed Crossfit, took a “before” picture and never looked back. Since then, Crossfit has been a huge blessing (physically, mentally & socially) for both me and my family.

 If you won the lottery what would be your first selfish purchase?

A log cabin in Big Sky, Montana.

What are some of your future goals?

My goals are centered on bettering myself, family and career.

 If you could be one actor for a day who would you be and why?

Jack Black…He is the funniest. I think it would be a very entertaining day!

 If you could live in any era, where would you go back to and why?

The American West in the 1800’s…Jeremiah Johnson style! I would have loved to have seen the American West as Lewis and Clark did.

 What’s the first CD you ever bought?

Back in the olden days, we didn’t have CD’s. We had cassette tapes and my first was Michael Jackson’s Thriller…My first CD, however, was Blue Oyster Cult’s Greatest Hits.

 What’s your favorite season and why?

Fall…Perfect weather, football and hunting!

Favorite workout?

Cindy…It cured my bad back. It really did!

 Least favorite workout?

I really don’t have one…I like it all. But, if I had to choose my least favorite movement, it would be Thrusters.


Thank you Joe for always putting forth the effort, and always having a positive attitude! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a mad Joe Hansen at CrossFit!
