By: 0

The March Athlete of the Month is Thane Kading! Thane has been with us since October had has been fearless in attacking her fitness. Her determination and grit is truly inspiring. Thane had a set back in the form of a sprained ankle and even that couldn’t slow her down!

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

I joined in October 2017.  

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

I am getting stronger each week.  Slowly! 🙄

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

My favorite moment was when I completed my first strict pull-up. However, since I haven’t been able to repeat this admirable feat, I now wonder if I imagined the whole thing!  🤣
Or maybe…That one time, when I almost broke my ankle but Cody made me Mr. Miyagi though it so I would toughen up….

What’s your spirit animal?

My dog…Someday I hope to be as awesome as my dog already thinks I am….


What are your interests outside of work and the gym?

I have a 12 year old son who keeps me busy with soccer and wrestling.

I also enjoy going to see live music with my friends and hanging out at home with my husband, kid and dog!  😊
And, of course, I like long walks on the beach and trying to do at least one pull up at a time…🙄

What has been your favorite workout/movement?

I enjoyed the card workout!


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

I am shy…I know no one will believe that…but it’s true!

I also use to be able to do a standing back flip…I would always say…the day I can’t do one of these anymore…that’s the day I am officially old.
So…..just so you know….I am officially old.
Oh..and I also asked “Siri” to name one interesting thing about Thane Kading….it was silently. Completely silent.  Siri is never silent.
Thanks Thane!
