By: 0

Let’s hear it for this month’s athlete of the month…. Keimche!

Keimche has only been in the family for 2 months, BUT has made such a wonderful impact on everyone in such a short time! She radiates joy to everyone that’s around her and is someone who faithfully cheers on every person, every single WOD, all the way till the end! Keimche has an extremely coachable spirit (who loves taking any feedback our coaches provide and immediately applying it so she can improve every day) and has a huge heart for kiddos! She’s the life of the party and loves to have a lot of fun! We love having Keimche in our family and we can’t wait to see all of the wonderful things in store for her in 2018! Keep up the great work “Kimchi”!

Here’s a few fun facts about Keimche:

Q: How long have you been doing CrossFit?
A: I’ve been coming to Crossfit 2024 for two months now, but have prior CrossFit experience (for a little over a year) at another gym.

Q: Why did you originally hop on the CrossFit Express?

Q: What’s your favorite movement in CrossFit?
A: Rebound…. jk! I love power cleans the most. Even though I’m pretty sure I still need a lot of improvement on them, but I think that’s what makes me like them so much because they are a challenge for me!

Q: Tell us of a time you laughed so hard you cried
A: Today when I had to work a 12 hour shift and it ended with me getting slime all in my hair – me and the kids laughed until it hurt!

Q: Favorite joke?
A: This one because somehow I never seem to forget it!
– Why is six afraid of seven? Because seven ate nine.

Q: What’s one item on your bucket list?
A: One thing on my bucket list is to learn sign language fluently!
