How long have you been at Willow Creek CrossFit and what made you want to join?

I’ve been at Willow Creek for 2.5 months now. I knew I wanted to start doing CrossFit for a more intense, more efficient workout and to push myself to new levels of dedication in the gym. I could tell the team of coaches were passionate, enthusiastic, and encouraging, and Willow Creek just felt right.

How is your life different after being a member at Willow Creek CrossFit?

My lower body and shoulders are the strongest they’ve been in years. With the change in workouts since beginning CrossFit, I feel higher energy levels and focus throughout the course of the day. I actually look forward to coming to the gym every day, rather than viewing it as a box to check.

Whats your favorite part about the gym or a favorite moment?

I enjoy the sense of competition when we did the CrossFit open. Dividing our gym into teams created a fun and competitive way to do the workouts.

What’s your spirit animal?

White-tailed deer

What are your interests outside of work and the gym?

I love to read, watch sports, golf, and enjoy the outdoors.

What has been your favorite workout/movement?

Snatch, mostly because it is one of the more challenging movements to learn.

Give us an interesting fact that we don’t already know about you.

I was my middle school spelling bee champion. And now that I say that, I hope my responses are spelled correctly.

Thanks Kyle!
