Dave and Judy Burford!!

Judy has been with Uncommon since October of 2016! She dragged her husband, Dave, along with her in February of this year.  And neither has looked back!  They impress us with their hard work and dedication.
Keep reading to learn a thing or two about the Burfords!

Q1: What do you each do for a living?

J: I’m a Job Coach for the Lafayette School Corporation, I help special needs students to develop life skills.

D: I am a maintenance Supervisor at Purdue


Q2: How did you get into Crossfit?

J: Both of my daughters do Crossfit and they suggested that I give it a try.

D: We have been involved in strength training for several years. Judy and my Daughters talked me into trying it a couple years ago. I started with HERO WODs I quickly realized this is what was missing from my weekly routine.


Q3: What is your favorite CF movement? Why?

J: Thrusters- it’s a full body workout.

D: Thrusters. I like the challenge and ability to work multiple muscle groups with one movement.


Q4: What is your least favorite CF movement? Why? 

J: Ooh so many!!! Box jumps, double unders and so on. JK, I’ve seen several of my own children come home from workouts with split open shines… and DUs, 3 in a row is my limit!

D: It is a toss up between the one I am about to do and the one I just finished. Actually pull ups, they are very difficult for me to do.


Q5: What do you like most about Uncommon?

J: All the members are motivating during the workouts and are so supportive. Coaches are engaging and will help you succeed in your goals.

D: The extra hour I spend with Judy and the Family atmosphere. Everyone are very friendly and take time to see how you are doing.


Q6: What have you learned most about yourselves in the time that you have been members at Uncommon?

J: That I’m stronger than I thought I was.. I have never had access to facilities like Uncommon Gym. Now that I do, I’m able to progress quickly.

D: Most limitations for me were mental. A years ago I never thought I would be able to do box jumps or power cleans again . Now I look forward to the challenge.


Q7: What are your guilty pleasures?

J: Pizza, Margaritas, Caramel Apples this week!

D: Nachos ( I have been told numerous times by my family that they are not their own food group) and anything Sweet!!


Q8: How long have you been married and how did you meet?

J: We’ve been married for 41 years and have 4 wonderful children. Dave and i met in high school. Dave was a big bad linebacker and I was a cheerleader. A match made in heaven!

D: 41 years. We met in High School.
