Chris Schmiedeke –

I have been heavily involved in athletics all my life.  In my later years I was a competitive cyclists racing as a Category 3 on the road and Expert on the Mountain Bike.  After my wife Lisa and I had our first child I could no longer find the time to train to be competitive in cycling so I was searching for a competition fix that was just as intense as bike racing, but shorter in duration.  For years I struggled with personal trainers and wasted gym memberships until I found CrossFit.  I first read about CrossFit in Men’s Health magazine and knew it was exactly what I was looking for.  That was November of 2008.  I joined CrossFit the following December and have never looked back.

Upon learning about CrossFit Kids, I knew that it was for me.  I have coached my daughters’ soccer teams since they were three years old and really enjoy the interaction with the children.  CrossFit Kids gives me the opportunity to shape the lives of children for the better, and perhaps their families too.
