My sponsor, Atlas Power Wraps, is making a special edition Jeremy “KINNICK BUTTER” wrap to help raise money for me for the Games in July. This special edition wrap is only available through the Atlas Power Wrap website for a limited time pre-order. The wraps are selling for $35 each and $20 of that goes towards my expense for the Games. Thank you for your continued support! Very excited for my 4th trip to the Crossfit Games and to show off all of my hard work and dedication that I have put in this year. Can’t wait to spread some BUTTER all over the 2012 Reebok Crossfit Games!!
Its been a while since my last post. I have been very busy, which is an incredibly awesome thing! With Regionals just around the corner for me I have been focusing on being ready for that but with my eyes on the Games. My goal is to get 1st place but I know that all I can do is push my body to the limit and let the cards fall. With that being said I am very confident in what my Coach Brian Mackenzie of Crossfit Endurance has been able to do with me this year. I am a completely different athlete in many ways. First off, since mid to late January I have dramatically reduced my overall intake on my nutrition. For those of you familiar with the Zone, I went from about 18-20 blocks per day to 13 blocks a day plus a Post Workout Recovery shake from Stronger Faster Healthier which is pretty much just protein along with amino acids and a few other things to assist in recovery. The shake consists of about 20g of protein or 3 blocks. So my total intake daily is at 16 blocks. I went from 205# to 185# in a matter of a couple months. My energy has not dropped but the exact opposite. I am thriving more than ever in my workouts and my strength numbers are extremely close if not better than before. Not to mention EVERYTHING has improved. The biggest changes in me have been that I now enjoy running, rowing, and am KILLING body weight movements. More details on my drastic body changes and my increase in performance and training after Regionals. For now, just enjoy my video of Amanda from the other night. 3:45! I will take that. My last performance was at the 2011 SoCal Regionals where I got 6:09 due to a bar dropped on my shins and multiple no-reps on the turn out of my muscle up at the bottom (which I think is an erroneous rule since I don’t use a false grip). My previous best was 4:11 so thats a pretty decent PR. Just SPREADING THAT BUTTER!
On Sunday, February 19th, 2012 from noon to 4:30pm I will be speaking at Crossfit Inland Empire in Mira Loma, California. I was invited by my good friend Paul Castenada, owner of Crossfit IE, to come out to speak to their athletes as well as anyone else interested in attending. I will be talking about all things Crossfit. From my journey from Fat to Fit to my experience in the 3 Crossfit Games that I competed in along with the differences in all 3 (2008, 2009, & 2011). I will also be discussing how I have balanced my life with being married, having 2 kids along the way, running the box, and keeping my sanity. There will be plenty of time for an open floor of Q&A. I am an open book and enjoy sharing my experience and my struggles in my almost 5 years of Crossfit with everyone.
The goal of this gathering is to share what I have learned and get people pumped up and ready for the 2012 Reebok Crossfit OPEN. I would like to extend the invitation to all who would like to come and listen to me chat about Crossfit and finish up with a great Workout with me. If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for following me. I will continue to do all that I can to better myself in every aspect of life. Here is the link to the “Being a Badass: – with Jeremy Kinnick” by the way I did not pick out that name. They had Katie Hogan of Valley Crossfit come out and speak to their women. It went so well that they invited me out. I am more than honored and feel very privileged to be able to inspire and help others reach their goals.
Crossfit is hard. But “hard” is relative. There are more normal, average, getting in shape people doing Crossfit than there are BEASTS destroying times and moving crazy heavy loads. Those crazy Beasts are what most people want to be one day but the reality is no one starts off as one. I wish we could dispel all the false beliefs that say Crossfit is only for the Elite or the Monster athletes. Crossfit is for those people but its also for grandmothers and grandfathers. Blue collar and white collar workers. Teachers, students, husbands and wives. Crossfit is for you if you want to be healthy and fit. If you want to challenge yourself and see real results. I love when new people walk in the door with the idea that they CAN’T do Crossfit because they haven’t worked out in years or ever. I love helping them realize they can do it.
**Pictured about is my mom. She has been Crossfitting since mid 2007 and is a very busy Grandmother of 6 so far. She fits it in when she can and we make the work outs challenging for her. She is closing in on 60 years old and doing just remarkable!
Back by popular demand. Had a few people ask me to bring this back. I get asked on a regular basis different questions regarding my training, my background, my nutrition, who I train with and other various questions like what gear I prefer and so forth. None of it is set in stone but it is consistent, if that makes sense. Meaning that I am always learning and changing for the better. As my body changes and improves so does my training and nutrition. There are some constants with what I odo. Here is your chance to shoot me a question about anything you are wondering about. I will answer any and all questions to the best of my ability. Thanks for checking out my site and I hope its helpful.
