Athlete Of The Month- Kim Smith


I am super excited to be chosen for Athlete of the Month. I love TNT and it is an awesome gym. I would not think of working out any where else.

I was very skeptical when I started because I could trip over air and I walked into walls a lot. I decided I would start with a fat burning class and said, “Oh hell no. I am never coming back to TNT.” Rochelle said give it another shot and I am so happy I did because I love it. I did fat burning classes for a few months and kept saying I will never do CrossFit classes, it looks way to hard.

Since I started a little over a year ago, I have learned so much. I have competed in two festivus game competitions, The CrossFit Open, and The Clash of the Classes. I learned that I like to compete and I feel amazing at the end.

I have learned to do things I never thought were possible like box jumps, lifting heavy weights, hand-stands, and double unders (which is a work in progress, but I am getting them ever so slowly). I have also completed a few 5ks getting a faster time each time; which makes me feel good about myself.


A couple of months ago, I started taking one on one's with Rochelle to help me get better at my weaknesses. When I think its getting to hard for me and I want to give up, Rochelle won't let me. She keeps pushing me; which I need because if it were up to me I would just stop. Rochelle is a great coach.

In the year, I have been doing CrossFit I have lost 80 pounds; which feels amazing. I have learned how to eat healthier, more about nutrition, and that trying new foods is not bad or scary. I have learned to like foods I never thought I would like.

I just want to thank the coaches at TNT for all you do, because I would not be the person I am today without you all. I love TNT, and I have made a great family here. You all are so supportive. Thank you again for choosing me again for Athlete of the Month.
