Occupation: Armed Forces, AGC SPS (HR Finance Manager)
Tell us about your sport and fitness background… I have always enjoyed various sports from a young age, mostly football and playing tennis. I was always a keen runner and since joining the Army in 1998 I’ve been taking part in athletics and cross country. I regularly do 10k races and have a few half marathons under my belt. My weakness is swimming and I avoid it like the plague. I got hooked on Crossfit after Matt came to Chicksands to do the on ramp for us. I think my friends think I’m a little obsessed, but I don’t care!
What are your goals? To remain fit and healthy as long as my body will let me. Complete a full marathon, and to be able to do a pull up without the help of a band.
Your biggest GOAT (thing you find difficult) Rowing. I often get frustrated with this, but I am learning to slow down (for once), and do long strong pulls…. As I so often get told.
What are your hobbies, interest, talents outside of CrossFit? I am a keen biker, I love nights out and probably far too much alcohol. I enjoy spending time with friends and family.
What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on CrossFit that were unexpected? Don’t drink as much as I used to!
Please share your favorite CFA moment…. Making couscous at the Superhuman games! **Kim’s contribution to the meal the evening after the games was Couscous…..that was as solid as cement!**
Any advice for people just starting out? Listen to the coaches advice. Slow and steady wins the race. Quality over quantity.
Complete the sentence: I love CrossFit and training at CFA because….It’s varied, challenging, rewarding. Has a great community and everyone supports each other. Coaches are awesome and patient and it will be hard to find another box half as good.
