FIT celebrates Burlington Township’s own Kim Kryscnski, a dedicated and devoted CrossFit athlete and high school history teacher, on her recent achievement of obtaining her Level 1 CrossFit trainer certification and new member of Team FIT at the rank of Assistant CrossFit Coach. An educator by both passion and profession, Kim teaches high school history by day and will be teaching CrossFit classes by night, coaching a few classes per week at Hyper CrossFIT, mainly during the evening. Her natural inclination to instruct and inspire allows Kim to share her vast knowledge and benefits of the CrossFit model with every member of the FIT family.
Coach Kim has demonstrated a lifetime of success as an award-winning gymnast and pole vaulter and generally avid sports enthusiast. A competitive athlete for the majority of her life, Kim submits she could never find her “true self” in a regular gym. Hyper CrossFIT provided the team atmosphere that she was used to, while introducing her to like-minded friends who helped her stay competitive, and improve her strength, stamina and skill.
As a former Hyper CrossFIT Athlete of the Month herself, Kim is well-known for her overall strength. Whether doing handstands or back flips, Kim relishes that her body is still able to do some of what it did in the past. Although she remains ever committed to pushing herself to get stronger, her proudest moments in the gym are helping others achieve their benchmarks. Watching other Hyper CrossFitters reach their own personal success such as handstand walks and toes to the bar are on the top of her list, for sure.
Assistant CrossFit Coach, Kim shares this tidbit of advice to anyone interested in trying CrossFIT but struggling with feelings of insecurity or intimidation: “Try it! Give yourself a chance to prove what you can do. Being fit is more than a number… unless, of course, that number is on the whiteboard at the end of the WOD. CrossFIT teaches self confidence and self esteem for EVERYONE! You will very quickly be impressed with yourself!”
Please join us in congratulating Coach Kim! We are so proud and pleased to call you a fellow member of Team FIT!
