CFCR ATHLETE OF THE MONTH  

Name… Kevin Wilczynski

 

When did you start CrossFitting…  Started cross fitting in August 2016. Toured the facility with one of my daughters and she thought I would enjoy it.  Turns out to be true…

Favorite wod… Almost anything without running…but really like Saturday Partner WODs, even if I have to run a little bit.
Least favorite wod… Anything with running.
Favorite lift… it may just be the snatch
Least favorite lift… back squats…these old knees feel it the next day.

Tell us bit about yourself (family, job, sports, military interest etc..)… Moved back to CO with my wife Chris, who grew up in Littleton, after being away for 25 years.  I work for FedEx and moved from Memphis.  I raised my 2 daughters in western Washington and they both reside in the Seattle area.  They join me at CFCR anytime they visit.  I enjoy all sports, mostly hockey and football.  I get the luxury of working from home when not on the road, and love the flexibility of the class schedule.

 

What were you doing before CrossFit…I was always very active before cross fit.  Started group fitness about 6 years ago and before that played team sports, lifted weights, and stayed active with my girls.


What were your thoughts after your first CrossFit workout… “why do they do so much running?” just kidding…I was humbled by how challenging it was to complete, and knew I had to get better.

 

What were your goals when joining CrossFit… my goals were pretty simple.  Complete the wod, and improve my lifts, make some friends at the gym.  After a several weeks I could really see changes and that drove me even more.  Combined with the other athletes and coaches it’s been a great experience

 

Have you achieved any of those goals… the goals achieved have exceeded my expectations.  I have held up remarkably well. I think the coaches are awesome in how they make members feel, regardless of skill.  There is no pressure if you modify and they will still coach you up to get the movements’ right.

 

Has CrossFit affected your life outside the gym…. I’m in the best fitness shape of my life.

 

Any advice for people getting started…stay with it…Be smart, the only person you’re competing with is yourself.…Participate in the Open.

 

Some of your recent accomplishments… my pacing during a WOD is much improved.  Kipping pullups, along with toe to bars.

 

What makes CFCR special to you?  The coaches and other members…coaches made me feel welcomed and like I belonged.  They stay patient and coach to improve.  The other members are great…no matter what class I go to I always connect with someone.
