Athlete Spotlight

Our Athlete Spotlight for the 3rd quarter of 2019 is Kali McClaren.  Kali was a little hesitant to start CrossFit but these days she’s  a CFPU Mainstay!  We asked Kali to tell us a little bit about herself and this is what she told us…

CFPU:  Tell us a little about yourself… (career, family, etc.)

KALI: “I’m 29 years old, I moved to Tulsa a little over 7 years ago for my first job as an RN. I currently work at Tulsa Spine and Specialty Hospital in the Pain Management Department and I absolutely love my job! I’ve been married for a year this past March and have two fur children!”

CFPU:  How long have you been doing CrossFit?

KALI: “My CrossFit anniversary was July 4th! It’s been a whole year since Jackson tricked me into joining and I’m so glad he did!”

CFPU:  Favorite CrossFit Movement?

KALI:  “Pull-ups (because it’s one thing I can actually do!)”

CFPU:  Least Favorite?

KALI:  “Overhead Squats, duh!”

CFPU:  Go-to pump up song or music?

KALI:  “Party In The USA (really have zero clue but that’s Jackson’s fav song period).

CFPU:  Things you enjoy outside the gym?

KALI:  “BRUNCH!!! I’m a foodie at heart!!! Spending time with family, going to the beach, really anything outdoors, and of course open gym!

CFPU:  Next CrossFit goal?

KALI:  “Double Unders! They will be the death of my shins.”

CFPU:  Favorite Coach?

KALI:  “I truly love all our coaches, it’s basically impossible to pick a favorite because they are all amazing.. but if I have to choose one its Jeremiah because we are besties!

CFPU:  What is one thing we don’t know about you?

KALI:  “One thing most people don’t know is that Jackson and I met through online dating on Eharmony!”

CFPU:  Favorite athlete, CrossFit or not?

KALI:  “Back in the day I really liked Cat Osterman (Texas & USA softball pitcher) but present day Ray Peterson.”
