March Member of the Month - Matt Formica!

How did you get involved in CrossFit? 


My wife knew Ashley C. and had talked with her about how they were opening a crossfit gym. The wife dragged me to the pre-opening workout/open house event.

What was your first WOD/experience?

My first crossfit experience was during the Kilter pre-opening event. I was wearing Asics running shoes and Addias basketball shorts. I don’t remember exactly what the WOD was, but I got through less than 5 minutes of it and had to sit down. I remember Ashley C. coming over to me saying “Are you alright?” Soon after, Kilter purchased their first AED.  

When did you start coming to CrossFit Kilter/ how long have you been CrossFitting for? 

Day 1. I attended the first class at 6am. I think it was April 1, 2013.

When did you realize that CrossFit was right for you? 

When I realized, a shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch, and a sensible dinner was more physically challenging than I thought.

What are you short-term and long-term CrossFit goals?

Short and long-term crossfit goals are the same for me. Stay healthy, injury free, avoid trying to be something that I am not, and make fun of JCAR.



What is your biggest accomplishment? 

March member of the Month! For me, the most important aspect of my experience at crossfit Kilter has been the opportunity to develop friendships with some absolutely amazing people. Friendships that have changed our lives and I hope will last for a lifetime.
