Client Interview – Coach Kevin

Crossfit can be a great way to get in shape, but we understand it can be a little scary for people who have never done it before. It can be intimidating for newcomers, but TriForce focuses on helping new members have an amazing experience as they learn the basics of CrossFit.

We recently interviewed Coach Kevin and his biggest challenge before joining CrossFit was walking into a CrossFit gym because he had no idea what he was getting into. Not knowing what CrossFit was, he had to do his own research and learn about it one workout at a time. He rarely touched a barbell in high school, so he had a lot to learn. He was also injured from his previous sport, had limited mobility which was a big concern for him. He had been doing endurance sports, ironman, ultra-marathons, and ocean marathons for about ten years. However, he was really kind of broken-down, injured, unhappy, and eventually got bored with it. 

Hence, Kevin wanted something more compact, which he didn’t have to train three or four hours a day. Although he was participating in endurance sports, a part of his problem was that he wasn’t strong enough, wasn’t weightlifting enough, and wasn’t supporting himself. So he dropped the endurance sports and decided to concentrate on CrossFit. However, since joining Triforce, he has found the level method to be a convenient way for him to approach his workouts, as it provides him with a menu of CrossFit and the entire goal. Because he can see it on the board or the poster, and because of the amazing coaching at Triforce, it makes it a little less difficult. 

Kevin has benefited greatly from CrossFit. He has noticed his increased strength and mobility. The most significant long-term benefit has been in his mental state. Pushing himself to places he hasn’t been before until he craves it. This is an amazing feeling! When talking with Coach Kevin you can feel the passion he has for CrossFit because of the impact that it continues to have on him every day. He discovered that working hard and pushing himself every day naturally builds confidence, which impacts his relationships with his family, job, and friends. Such a cool idea! You can literally change the way you approach daily issues because of conquering the little barriers contained in workouts every day when you come to the gym!

Another thing that Kevin likes with Triforce is the coach and the community. When he first started CrossFit, he had never worked out in a group setting and had no idea what that meant. But he remembers from endurance sports that when you’re at the start line and everyone is doing the same difficult thing, you get that foxhole mentality, where you’re all in this together, but that’s only at the start line and once you start racing, you’re on your own for the rest of the day. However, at Triforce, that is not the case. So you’ve joined the group, and everyone is doing the same thing, whether it’s a brand new person or someone who’s been doing it for a long time with the strongest person, and everyone ends up in the same place at the end of a workout. So it creates the mentality of, “I’ve got a crew around me that’s going to support me”. Even if you’re first or last, it doesn’t matter. Everybody’s getting a good workout, everybody’s got the same goal, and that’s the culture at Triforce.

Coach Kevin started coaching because he gets excited when a new person walks in the door who’s never done it, and they are scared, and he can connect to that person. He likes the thought of teaching and helping people however he can. The act of seeing people grow, and seeing people being appreciative about the changes that he had been able to help them with. Coach Kevin says that he loves seeing people go from a starting point that oftentimes is a complete beginner to something that they’re proud of.

To somebody who is still on the fence about joining Triforce

“Come in and meet the people and work with us. See, and listen to the stories about people and where they’ve come from. Focus on the process and not worry about some long-term goal. Just come in consistently and trust the process, the coaches, and trust the fact that everybody wants you and everybody’s going to support you. Just do it.”
