Jeanene & Brenan / October 2021 Athletes of the Month

Our October 2021 Athlete Couple of the Month is Jeanene and Brenan! Joining earlier this year, they are committed to attending regular programming, as well as endurance classes. They push themselves hard and we constantly see their improvement in form and speed – celebrating LOTS of recent PRs! Always encouraging of others, we are super lucky to have you both!

  1. How long have you been members at Kirkland Community Fitness? Do you remember your first experience?  Since March 2021.  We did a trial class and everyone was so welcoming that we joined that day!
  2. What keeps you coming back to the gym day after day? The people! As cliche as it sounds, the community really does keep us coming back. Everyone is so encouraging, they celebrate with you when you get a PR or push you when you need it.  And the noticeable improvement in fitness is a pretty great bonus!
  3. Do you have a favorite WOD or movement? Jeanene – I LOVE a good metcon! As challenging as they can be, I like burpees and box jumps!  Brenan – rowing and cleans!
  4. Do you have a least favorite WOD or movement? Jeanene – the assault bike. Brenan – double unders
  5. What’s your biggest personal accomplishment inside KCF? Jeanene – lifting heavy weights, and lifting anything over my head! Brenan – No longer having to walk on running workouts.
  6. Is that anything you want to share with the KCF community surrounding your personal fitness goals and successes? Any recent PRs you’re super proud of or lifts you feel more comfortable performing? Jeanene – I want to keep working on my snatches, double unders, and pull ups. Prior to KCF I had never lifted, so being able to do lifts now is a huge boost in confidence, and just makes me want to keep improving. Brenan – I want to be able to do double unders.  I recently was able to do squat cleans to hit a new clean and jerk PR.
  7. Outside the gym what are some of your favorite hobbies? Road trips with our family in our trailer, hiking, anything outdoors!
  8. What’s your favorite place to vacation as a family? Belize! And finding hidden gems on road trips – like hot springs in the mountains.
