ATHLETE OF THE MONTH 

Keith Schawel

When did you find CrossFit?
March 2019

What is your favorite part about it?
I love how supportive the community is. I didn’t know what to expect back in March, but I’ve found that I’ll never be judged for trying.

What is your most loved lift/movement?
My favorite lift is deadlift because it’s the basis for many other lifts, and my favorite movement is rowing.

Most challenging?
Pistols.

Most recent PR:
Back squat @ 195lbs

Any goals you’re working towards?
My double-unders are so close!

How has CrossFit impacted your life?
CrossFit has brought a sense of community to my life that I didn’t even know I was missing. Because of that, it’s also changed how I view “working out”. I actually look forward to it.

If you had one tip of advice for someone just starting CrossFit what would it be?
Don’t be concerned about things like WODs dominating our conversations. It’s just because we like it. It’s probably not an obsession…
