Athlete of the Month - Kris Ferguson


I started CrossFit in September of 2018 because I was heavier than ever and wanted to be a better example for our 3 kids. My wife, Alice, started at TNT months before me and was making great strides with her fitness and it was inspiring to me. With working out twice a week for about 6 months, I had lost 50 pounds. When I saw such great results, I started going 3-4 times a week and have made great strength and conditioning gains.

I grew up riding BMX bikes and snowboarding so weight training and fitness wasn’t something I did much of. With CrossFit, I learned a whole new way of working out. At this point I have gone from scaled on nearly all workouts to being mostly intermediate or RX. My favorite part of CrossFit, obviously besides barbell stuff, is when the WOD is over and you just have to collapse because there is nothing left and you know you gave everything you had.

The TNT community is such a one of a kind place where you feel like part of a family and the staff is second to none. Special thanks to dawn patrol for making those early morning workouts more fun. As far as goals, I want to reach a point where I can be a consistent RX athlete. When I retire I don’t want to be someone in and out of hospitals dealing with weight/poor diet related health issues. I want to keep on with CrossFit and move into my 40’s in the best shape ever. Thanks to the coaching staff for all of your support and encouragement. Couldn’t have made it this far without you.
