CrossFit has been Bob’s passion for several years. He has seen positive changes in people’s physical and emotional lives as they commit to a CrossFit program. They begin to see their life gets a “kick in the pants,” and they become an improved version of themselves. Bob is eager to coach athletes along that path and especially those who are considered senior citizens. In addition to CrossFit, Bob loves to ride bikes, fish, golf, hike, and help his wife move the rocks around in her garden.

Kat has been doing CrossFit for 7 years. On her 50th birthday, she decided to take on CrossFit, as it was something that intimidated her. From there she was hooked—even with her first WOD being 7 minutes of burpees! Kat has always been a team player. She formerly worked as a wild land firefighter where she would exercise and work hard with her fellow fire fighting family. She loves the similar energy and group dynamic from being a firefighter to CrossFit. Kat loves an active lifestyle: spending much of her time with her partner Gretchen fixing up their small 1930s farm house and enjoying the outdoors.

Jared knew there had to be a fitness discipline which could meet and exceed the varied demands of the people he interacted with and his own passions. Training better suited to mastering high-country hunting, dominating on the football field, and maximizing everyday life than the glaring gaps he experienced with traditional gym workouts. Jared attended his first CrossFit class at AMROCK's open house in Fall 2016. The workout of the day included power cleans, a run around the block, and pull-ups. He found a fitness program that fused strength, cardiovascular endurance, and body-weight movements in an endless combination. This was it! Since that day, Jared has worked to continually improve his commitment to the CrossFit discipline and earned his CF-L1 in December 2018. In addition to his passion for functional fitness, youth sports and outdoor recreation; Jared enjoys adding to his collection of Spartan race medals with his family.

Congratulations to Spencer Sessions on being chosen as our male Athlete of the Quarter! Spencer started CrossFitting at AMROCK in October 2018 to stay fit post running season. He still remembers his first WOD—G.I. Jane (100 burpee pull-ups for time). Despite the intensity, Spencer was hooked and quickly became part of the AMROCK family. Spencer always refreshes us with his willingness to work hard. He says, “I often look at the WOD and say: ‘no way I can do that many’, but somehow it gets done and keeps me challenged in a world of convenience and abundance.” Spencer is a self-employed commercial banker. He enjoys spending free time in the outdoors—fishing, boating, and hiking, as well as spending time with his wife and their four daughters and one son. Way to go, Spencer! Thank you for your commitment to growth!
