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.”
