Kim grew up in Michigan and loved playing all sports. She played junior college basketball and softball. While studying for a degree in Physiology at Michigan State University, she became interested in training. She moved to Chicago and worked as a personal trainer while studying to become a physical therapist. Kim first discovered CrossFit while working in Texas, and she was immediately hooked by the intensity and community of the sport. She has been doing CrossFit for 7 years and wishes she had discovered it sooner. Kim particularly loves CrossFit’s focus on health across the entire lifespan and its initiative to address the pandemic of chronic disease through training and nutrition.
