Name: Karthick Jeyaraj

What city were you born in? Chennai, India

What do you do when you’re not working out at Athletic Lab (occupation, hobbies, etc)? I work as a software developer at MetLife. I’m a soccer fan and a big fan of Manchester United and follow all of their games. Other than that, love driving, trying out different cuisines.

What’s your favorite exercise? Least favorite? Favorite: Thrusters, Olympic lifts; Least: Burpees.. and all versions of it

What do you feel has been your greatest accomplishment since you started training? My strength and endurance have gone up and I’m probably stronger now than ever. Also, being able to do clean and jerks, snatches – I consider then as an accomplishment.. and MUSCLE UPS 🙂

What motivates you? To be better version of myself. And to compete against the other members (especially Mario.. haha)
