Alexander Kropp

I first really got into fitness during college by taking advantage of the Rec Facilities and being actively involved with UW-RecSports. After I graduated, I found a job in Madison and began throwing my life into my career and making time to work out 4 to 5 days a...

28 Day Nutrition Challenge – Megan O’Rourke

I took the Challenge, the 28 Day Nutrition Challenge. I'm an endurance athlete (long distance cycling, trail running, triathlons) so for years I was super critical of CrossFit. In September I endured yet another injury (this time a stress fracture in my femur). Enough...

Jordan Rohlfing

I was a track and field athlete in college and became accustomed to having my workouts created for me. After graduating in 2011, I spent many years aimlessly wandering around gyms trying to create workouts for myself to achieve my goals. I never succeeded. The gyms...

Jesse Jamieson

I had been interested in CrossFit for a long time and had even done some very basic workouts with different apps. I got really heavily into lifting weights when I was going to PA school (I now work in the ED at UW). It was really the only release I got while pretty...

Abhishek Kumar

After moving to Madison I wanted to join a gym in order to get fit. One of my CrossFitter friends told me about CrossFit. Next thing I am searching "Crossfit Near Me". When I started, I was not able to do jumping ropes initially, but finally I did it!  Next target is...
