Congratulations to Kelly Woerdeman, Cynergy CrossFit’s Spotlight Member!
What do you do for work?
I am an independent financial planner and Army Reserve Instructor. I love both of these jobs and look forward doing them each day.
What would you like us to know about you and your family?
My wife Michelle and I live in Hanson with our Daughter, Elizabeth (7) Son, Jack (4), our Dog, Patton and Cat, Joey
What is one thing that we may not know about you.
This is my rookie year at Cynergy so there are lots of things. Let’s go with I’ve been in the Army for over 19 years, 2 activations, 1 Iraq deployment, and I am very close to retirement.
How long have you been CrossFitting?
I am 3 months in now.
What time do you typically train?
All over the map…5am, 6am, 9am 4pm
What is your favorite lift and why?
Thrusters…It seems to me like everything is working at once with that lift.
What is your favorite WOD and why?
Anything involving running….I have a distance running background.
What are your current CF goals?
I am struggling with double unders and HSPU’s. I am working to fix that currently. Also I am looking forward to the “Murph” I would like to perform well during that WOD.
What are your current life goals?
So much going on here… Continue spending as much time as possible with my wife and kids. Looking forward to retiring from the military and would love to start coaching my kids in their sports. Would like to teach some college courses in basic finance.
What is your most memorable time as a CrossFitter?
I would say my first few days at Cynergy was the most memorable. Everyone was very welcoming and awesome
and I knew I made a great decision to join up.
How has CF impacted your life outside of the box?
My energy level has gone through roof!
How would you best describe Cynergy to others?
The members are awesome. You show up, the workouts are pre-planned so you don’t have to think about it. You don’t need to wait for gym equipment to get freed up. You end up pushing yourself beyond what you would do on your own at the gym. It is also very close to my military training as far as instructor led group training.
Any additional comments:
Instead of making excuses on why I can’t go to the gym, I now have the discipline and motivation to make it in as many days as possible. I have a lot to learn and a long way to go but I am certain I found the place to do it. Thank you to all the coaches and members for everything so far. Let’s get some!
