MORE ABOUT KRIS
Why did I start CrossFit?
Officially: Prior to moving to ATL and officially starting CrossFit, I was working out regularly with other PTs doing “CrossFit style workouts.” I didn’t know anyone before moving here, so I wanted to find a CrossFit gym so I could meet people with similar interests (working out, staying “fit,” healthy lifestyles) and make new friends.
Favorite CrossFit Midtown memory?
There are so many to choose from! All the holiday / anniversary parties. Meeting my best friends and Kevin at CFM.
What do I do in my spare time?
CrossFit – duh. PT at CFM, travel, arts & crafts, paint, play soccer, game nights, binge watch the newest TV show / movie.
What is my "day job?"
Physical Therapist – I am an acute care PT at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, and I own my own PT business, Focus PT, providing outpatient PT services at CFM.
Advice to new CrossFitters?
Ain’t no shame in the scaling game.
Favorite CrossFit movement?
Anything upside-down: handstand walking, handstand push-ups.
