Sure it’s great when I PR at something, but the truly amazing thing to see is someone get a handstand push-up for the first time, or their first pull-up, or hit a big lift. That is the most incredible part of being a coach.

Kelli’s Story

I first got introduced to CrossFit 623 by a commander at the med group, LtCol Coleman. I had just recovered from shoulder surgery and had been hearing a ton about this CrossFit thing. I had a background in basketball and jiu-jitsu and sports have just always been a part of my life, so I was really eager to try something new.

I was hooked from the first workout I ever did in June of 2013. 21-15-9 of wall balls and burpees. I completely thought I was going to die, but as you can imagine… I survived. From then on, I wanted to learn everything I could about this sport. In May of 2014, I decided to sign up and get my L1 cert and start learning how to coach. It felt amazing hitting big PRs (personal records) and milestones, and I knew I wanted to be a part of that for others; to help them hit those same results and push them further than they knew they could go.

That to me is the most rewarding thing. Sure it’s great when I PR at something, but the truly amazing thing to see is someone get a handstand push-up for the first time, or their first pull-up, or hit a big lift. That is the most incredible part of being a coach. No other sport has such a positive community like the community of CrossFit, and it’s a community that is shared across the entire world. My passion is definitely Olympic weightlifting, and my goal is to become great at it. I want to master the technique and eventually compete. I love competing in team CrossFit competitions as well. I have yet to do a solo one, but I’m sure that’s coming. I also want to get more certs under my belt and learn everything I can to become a better coach and athlete. Oh… and how could I forget? One day I will be on SNL!
