Virus Pop-Up at LoLo [Victoria BC Crossfit]
We loved hosting Canadian company Virus here at CrossFit LoLo. (Also read our previous post with images and info about Virus gear). Besides the amazing gear that they brought along, Scott and Kim from Virus Canada were super knowledgeable, experienced and friendly – we wished they could have stayed longer!
Here is what Scott and Kim had to say about their work and their experiences.
What inspired you to do Virus?
“The owners of Virus International along with others who have joined and become integral parts of this team. Those people are a daily inspiration for us. The Virus product is fantastic. But without question, it was the passion behind the company that drew us in, and that keep us coming back for more.”
What is the happiest moment of your life?
“It would be almost impossible to pin it down to one moment.
Kim & I have travelled extensively and been on so many adventures together. I don’t know how many times we’ve said to each other: ‘This is the most fun, ever!’
Honestly, any of those moments could be considered our happiest.”
What is the saddest moment of your life?
“We’re both closing in on 50 and therefore, just by length of life, we’ve both lost some of our friends and family.”
Who is the most influential person in your life?
“I think we’ve both experienced a number of influencers throughout our lives… but for both of us, the main ones would be our parents and family. Strong family ties, strong bonds, strong influences.”
What are you most afraid of right now?
“I’m going through a pretty scary time right now. I’ve had chronic, severe pain for the last for years – that’s becoming more debilitating all the time. We’re hoping that a second, upcoming surgery (still up to a year a way) will help – or possibly even fix the problem.”
What are you most excited about right now?
“We’ll answer that in two parts. First, I’m pretty excited at the prospect of walking again without assistance and without pain. Secondly, we are just now undergoing a big transformation here at Virus Canada – worldwide. And we’ve never been more excited to be a part of this team.”
