Name: James Bence

Tell us about yourself. Where are you from and how did you get here? Born in Ohio and moved to Georgia at 5, been around middle GA and Atlanta since then. Now live in Woodstock.

How long have you been a member at The Garage? Started late October – ish

How did you find The Garage? Opened Google Maps and typed Crossfit – closest one to my home in Woodstock

What do you like about working out at The Garage? It’s a great atmosphere with no judgement or no pressure. People at 8p are great and I love having the motivation of the scores from all the early-birds that get up in the morning to work out so I can set goals.

What do you do for a living? Certified Public Accountant – but not the Ben Affleck type. No taxes, just audits. Its as fun as it sounds.

What are your hobbies and interests? Still like getting out and playing basketball or the occasional flag football game. Canoe trips and mountain biking are a must. Other than that I have twin 6 year old kids with one in gymnastics and one playing soccer/basketball so there goes a lot of spare time!

What is something interesting about you most people don’t know? I spent 6 weeks living in a small banana farming village on the side of Mt Killimanjaro in Tanzania back in 2002.

Favorite food(s)? Love me some BBQ, any and all kinds welcome. Grapefruits are my favorite night time snack.
