December Athlete of the Month- Jennifer Kimmel

Jennifer Kimmel


Tell us a little about yourself and family-Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.


“I like keeping things short and sweet. I'm an awesome house cleaner (but not of my own) I'm a mother of 4 awesome girls. My family keeps me seriously busy. We are all about health and nutrition.”



How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join?

“I've always secretly stalked the CrossFit Facebook page and blog. I've always been athletic but this CrossFit was something totally different. I loved the idea of constant change, keeping your body guessing.



What are your goals? Personal, professional, and athletic?


My goals are to love my family, love my community and share the love of Jesus! AND if I can lift a freaking heavy barbell...that's a super bonus!



What is your favorite movements and non-favorite movement?


The Snatch scares me but it’s my favorite! I guess it’s a love/hate relationship...but more love and respect. 



What is you proudest CrossFit moment?

Box jumps...I couldn't get my head wrapped around jumping my whole body on top of that stinking box...That fear kept me from even trying it for almost a year. Last month I jumped on that box...YES!!

What is one thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?

You might not know that I hated coffee until I turned 40...now I can't live without it.



What is your biggest motivation in life?

My family is my biggest motivation. Together we are stronger. And together we can do anything.


Biggest impact CrossFit has made in your life?

I love that I can keep up with my backpacking mountain goat hubby. I feel like I'm in the best shape of my life. And when you can out lift your daughter...well, that's a bonus!
