TUES 07.03.12 Athlete Profile – ADAM KALLIN

Adam ♥ Fran

Athlete Profile – Adam Kallin

Hometown: Fort Lauderdale, FL
Age: 26
Occupation: Actuary
When did you first start CrossFitting?: 3 weeks ago
Favorite WOD: Not much experience to draw from, but my favorite so far was the 3B Tabata
Least Favorite WOD: I’d have to say FRAN at this point
Three words to describe you: Laid-back, respectful, statistics
Tell us about your sports & fitness background: 2 years as a bench (or pool) warmer for high school swim and water polo teams, 4 years on the University of Florida men’s rowing team, recent finisher of the Publix Georgia Marathon
How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? Take us back to your first WOD… what was it, and how did it feel? I’ll call FRAN my first WOD. It felt miserable while I was doing it, and I couldn’t straighten my arms for 6 days after finishing.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CF (before/after)? It really hasn’t been long enough to see a noticeable change, other than the fact that I have been sore for awhile after most of the workouts.
Please share with us any favorite CrossFit / CFM moments: Hooverball is a pretty awesome sport.
Any advice for people just getting started? Try and do better than I am.
What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit? Hobbies: watching sports, reading, running, bowling. Interests: sports, politics, economics. Talents: being spectacularly untalented.
What did you eat today? Eggs and tuna fish.
Do you follow the paleo or primal lifestyle? What is your nutrition philosophy? Not currently. My nutrition philosophy is to make healthy (or what is traditionally defined as healthy) eating choices in general but not to stick to any defined plan.

    Adam, great spotlight and awesome job on the front squats last night. Looks like you're enjoying the kool-aid!

    Adam Kallin in the house! Check out his awesome Athlete Profile today. Prettiest rowing form EVER. PWC represent!

  • John Dyer says:

    Looking good Adam! Eggs and tuna fish; the food of kings. Not sure why he didn't list watching old movies in his hobbies. The kid has seen every one of those old black and white movies that the critics talk about and is pretty well versed in 80s and 90s pop culture, for a young buck.
