Growing up in South Florida, Kyle played sports year-round, which instilled in him the value of staying active and fit. For years he went to the typical globo-gyms to workout, kind of just going through the motions and not really enjoying the process. In 2012, he gave CrossFit a try and was instantly reminded of the competitive yet fun aspect of fitness he had as a kid playing baseball with his best buddies. Kyle recognized CrossFit as something that difficult and intense, usually accompanied by a slight bit of pain and suffering, but he was finally enjoying coming to the gym each day. What Kyle loves about CrossFit is that it takes a menial, everyday task of going to the gym to exercise and turns it into something that every CrossFitter looks forward to most in their day.
The community nature that comes along with CrossFit is like nothing that can be experienced at another type of gym, and that is Kyle’s favorite thing about it. He says that the members of CrossFit Deerfield Beach are like no other people he has met in his life. Kyle has been a coach at CFDFB since 2014, and he and his wife, Kelli (also a CFDFB coach), formed lifelong friendships they will enjoy for many years to come. CrossFit Deerfield Beach is their second home and they’ve shared some amazing moments within the community and the box. There have been many PR’s and parties, WODs, Opens, charity events, and competitions. Taking a second to reflect on all of those experiences, Kyle can’t help but smile because the best is yet to come!
