Congratulations to Kyle Karns for our June Athlete of the Month! Keep up the great work work Kyle, you have accomplished so much in your first 3 months here at CrossFit 580. Your hard work and dedication is inspirational! #fitnesscommunityresults
Started CrossFit 580: April 2017
Favorite movement: Power Clean
Least favorite movement: Burpee Box Jumps, I’ve always hated Burpees!
Tell us about your fitness/lifestyle background:
How did you first get exposed to CrossFit 580?
What have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting CrossFit 580 (before/after)?
Please share with us any favorite CrossFit 580 moments:
Favorite moments would probably be the constant feeling of being happy/impressed with my individual progress. As a newer member I am still finding my 1rm/PRs and being able to set that bar ever so slightly higher defiantly helps motivate me to keep working!!! Also, my cardio/MetCon has always been my “achilles heel” but after doing certain WODs with several meters involved I get excited when I can still find myself standing and not collapsed on the floor haha
What are you hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit 580?
Pretty much all of my time out of the gym and outside of work is spent with my family. I have a year and a half year old at home, Kole, and he sure makes life exciting. New things discovered daily at this point keep mommy and me on our toes!!! I love pretty much all sports including but not limited to football, baseball, basketball and even European soccer. I look forward to taking my son to his first games here when he proves he can sit still for more than a Daniel Tiger episode. (Shout out to those of you who know all about Daniel Tiger)
Any advice for people just getting started?
For me the biggest challenge was and still is executing the correct technique on some of the olympic lifts and almost all of the gymnastic stuff haha. I would advise, and currently practice myself, patience. Know that every person in the box started somewhere and whether you are 15 or 50 any new hobby takes time to become efficient at. Use your fellow gym members and coaches as a resource, from what I’ve experienced everybody at CrossFit 580 act as a community and are happy to lend advice when asked.
