Do you have a nickname? What is it?
M: Mo’
D: Marmon

What is one food that you will not eat?
M: Onions–especially raw onions. They’re the worst thing on the planet.
D: There’s not much that I won’t eat, but I’ll say brussel sprouts.

What is your favorite movie?
M: Any of the Rat Pack movies from the 80s–Pretty in Pink, etc. If I had to pick something more modern, it would be anything with Chris Hemsworth.
D: Gangs of New York

If someone was to give you a gift (money’s no object) what would you want?
M: Ticket for unlimited travel anywhere around the world.
D: A pistol on my left leg? It’s an exercise I can’t do. It’s tough–I don’t want for much. A tricked-out man cave.

What is the one quality you admire most in others?
M: Honesty. And empathy–empathy is something that we’ve had to develop as coaches.
D: Passion. Whether it’s for life, for a profession–it inspires me.

Where is the next place you want to visit?
M: Greece
D: Norway – my wife is Norwegian.

If you had to pick one place in town to take a tourist, where would it be?
M: Jamestown CrossFit!
D: Yes–I’d take someone to one of our facilities.

Describe your perfect day off.
M: A quiet day–watching a movie and enjoying some good food.
D: Sleeping in and spending the day with my kids.
