Meet our May athlete, Brian Kim! He's been upping his game, hitting double days, and is probably the fastest air squatter we've ever seen!
Name: Brian Kim
Profession: Molecular Biologist
It’s been almost a year now.
I was active in high school, but as I got older things went downhill for me. I became too focused on school and work that I began to lose track on my physical well being. I was stress eating and drinking quite often, and exercising was pretty much non-existent. But ever since I joined the Cave, I’ve been motivated by the community to get improve myself not just physically but mentally as well. I feel a lot stronger and energized, and a lot happier.
I swam and did martial arts in high school.
Anything that makes me sweat like crazy.
Cleans and squats.
Any WODS with wall balls...I literally have to jump to get the ball over the black line.
Snatches, but I’m improving.
My proudest moment was when I was able to backsquat more than 2x my weight. It was a testament that I was getting a lot stronger from last year.
It's sort of embarrassing, but I would like to get my double unders down. I still can’t do one.
Just give it a shot. I was hesitant to try at first, but now I have no regrets joining CrossFit.
