At CrossFit Kinnick we pride ourselves in helping people see themselves as athletes and pushing them to chase after their potential. Over the years I have seen so many of our athletes progress and I think our gym is pretty unique in that our best competitors were far from top level when they came through our doors. Next to none of them have any real athletic background as far as college sports or prior experience in strength and conditioning. Many were even overweight and deconditioned (including myself when I started CrossFit). For those without that prior training, every bit of fitness they have was all achieved through CrossFit. Constantly varied, functional movements, at high intensity. The difference maker at our box is that we don’t write anyone off as not having the ability to achieve great things with their fitness and we get really fired up to help everyday people become fitter than they ever thought possible. Anyone can become a competitor for CrossFit Kinnick with commitment and dedication.

This year we were able to qualify two teams for the 2014 CrossFit Games SoCal Regional and it is a great accomplishment for us to not just qualify a team with our strongest athletes who train heavily for competition, but to qualify another team was truly a representation of the abilities that all of our CrossFit Kinnick athletes have. Team Kinnick Butter (only represented by our top 4 men and women, check the roster here) finished tied for 2nd in a stacked SoCal region and 8th worldwide. Team Kinnick was made up of our other 89 athletes participating in the Open and they were able to qualify in 30th place in SoCal, earning an invite to regionals as well! I am so proud of the CrossFit Kinnick community and of the 4 men and 4 women that we are sending to represent Team Kinnick at the Socal Regional:

Andrew Perry

Jason Kinnick

Chris Hapner

Brian Ciaglia

Sariah Veirs

Claudia Morel

Natalie Hendricks

I-Esha Scott

The SoCal Regional is coming quick and we are all hard at work getting ready to spread more BUTTER than ever! Stay tuned!
