Member Spotlight, meet Kenner! He's the funny guy with the big smile in the middle.
What/who made you decide to try BICF and join our “Founders Club”?
Well, Chris Exarhos is a former hockey player and was known in hockey parlance when he played as what is called a “Goon.” A Goon is what people call hockey players who are extremely good fighters. Mr. Exarhos, as he makes me call him, said he would beat me up unless I joined. End of story. (Well, that and the fact that I wanted to get in shape. Being around highly qualified trainers who know how to teach people is the most effective way to obtain peak performance.)
What has been the most significant change for you since joining BICF?
I am getting leaner and much more fit!
What is your favorite thing about BICF?
Chris and Brandi design workouts for people of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels.
What are your favorite/least favorite movements?
My favorite movement is the snatch and my least favorite is the muscle up (because I cannot do it – yet).
What are your personal goals/aspirations for 2017?
My personal goal for 2017 is to beat Chris Exarhos in a workout – when he does not have one arm tied behind his back.
What has been your biggest accomplishment since starting CrossFit?
I can play with my young son and keep up with him in nearly all physical elements where before I had challenges. I now have much more stamina, balance, and strength. I can’t but be certain that I will live a much more complete life as a result of the high intensity training that CrossFit affords me.
Share something we don’t know about you.
When I workout in my garage - ALONE - I pretend I am Rich Froning (and every once in a while I pretend I am Mr. Chris Exarhos). I am also very good at laughing at myself.
