Athlete of the MonthApril

Kelly L.

She’s a true representation of a sweet & awesome human being!

I’m really excited to have our athlete of the month introduce herself. You will be in awe as you learn about her this month. She’s a true representation of a sweet & awesome human being!
Hi my name is Kelly, and I am deeply in love with the outdoors. I have been married for 17 years to Jason and we have 2 teenagers, a 13 year old boy and a 17 year old girl and we reside in Coon Rapids.
I have worked as a Field Rep for the last 9 years at Redbox where I get to work outside and enjoy my amazingly flexible schedule. I have a strong background in concert and festival security and technology, from which I have some pretty crazy stories. About 20 years worth, from tiny little church concerts in outlying Minnesota to the Rolling Stones at Turner Field in Atlanta.
1. What’s your athletic background?
My parents weren’t big believers in competitive sports, so i don’t really have an athletic background. In my early adult years I lifted weights, rock climbed, and snowboarded.
2. When did you start at CrossFit Osiris?
My first class was July 15, 2019, and I thought I was going to die.
3. What keeps you coming back?
Two things keep me coming back. The first is physical change and achievement. Not having an athletic background I am blown away by all our bodies can do. How far you can push them, and the goals and growth achieved by when you do. Literally mind blowing. I frequently feel like a little kid, with that Christmas morning excitement before a class. I don’t even want to confess how many times I’ve lost sleep over pre-class excitement.
The second reason I keep coming back is the Osiris community, I had no idea when I signed up that It was for anything more then getting my functional fitness on. Our very own mini series of “Osiris Family Values” happens 7 days a week in and out of that box, and I am so totally invested.
4. If you could pick a workout what would it be?
Filthy Fifty. Bring. It. On. (Google Filthy Fifty Crossfit)
