What got you into CrossFit?

“I found CrossFit in 2010 when I was looking for a better and more efficient way to work out. I had been doing stuff in my basement, including some of the more well-known video workouts and found myself really tired of the same things over and over. Then I tried CrossFit. Every day is something different, and I am always working to master techniques. Just when you think you have one thing figured out, there are three more things to learn or perfect.

What do you love about being a coach?

“The ‘lightbulb moment’ for the athletes. There is nothing more satisfying than someone achieving their first pull up, muscle up, or feeling the weightlessness of a perfectly executed Olympic lift. Pair that with life-changing perceptions about health, wellness and fitness … and that, above all else, is extremely rewarding.

What’s your favorite workout?

Anything with wallballs and burpees!

Kelly Kulich, Owner

  • FMCF Coach
  • Level 1 CrossFit Trainer
  • CrossFit Mobility Certification
  • The Outlaw Barbell training camp
  • CPR and AED certified

What got you into CrossFit?

“I originally tried CrossFit because my husband was working out at our house and I wanted to join him. It wasn't until I trained at a facility and started to understand the Olympic Lifts that I truly fell in love. Then I wanted to do a pull-up—and I reached that goal. I love that it's a never-ending process. There is always something to get better at—a new goal to reach for.”

What do you love about being a coach?

“I love showing people what they are capable of. When someone finds strength they didn't know they had, it is a wonderful thing. The pride and excitement I feel when our athletes reach new personal goals is very rewarding. I can't imagine doing anything else.”

What’s your favorite workout?

“I love a workout called the Sevens. It's seven movements, seven reps of each, for seven rounds. It never seems that hard, but it's extremely mentally challenging. I have quit it once and ended up going back and finishing because I couldn't let the workout win. It's humbling for sure!”

  • CPR and AEP certified

What got you into CrossFit?

“Kip dragging me across the street to give it a try. Love the intensity”

What do you love about being a coach?

“I love seeing the reactions of athletes who achieve a goal they have been striving for—like their first pull up.”

What’s your favorite workout?

“I don’t have a favorite workout. Anything that looks long and awful—I love.”

Jacob Colp

  • FMCF Coach
  • Level 1 CrossFit Trainer
  • CPR and AED certified

What got you into CrossFit?

“Nobody had ever taught me about working out or what fitness looks like. I had played soccer my entire life, and heading into high school, I was looking for a workout program that would help me stay competitive. I tried to do my own thing for a long time and realized it just wasn't working. Then I stumbled upon some CrossFit Games footage, visited FMCF and I’ve been here ever since. What has kept me around so long in CrossFit is the "constantly varied" portion. I love never knowing what to expect and having the freedom to build any workout my mind can dream up. I also look better than I ever have, so that's an added bonus.”

What do you love about being a coach?

“I love being to able to have a tangible impact on a person’s life—where they can point to the scale and say, "I lost weight, and Jacob was a part of that process." I love when people are in the best shape of their life at age 40, and I can feel like I had something to do with it.”

What’s your favorite workout?

“I like Cindy. She doesn't like me, but I like her.”

Nicole Meyer

  • Boot Camp Commander

What got you into CrossFit?

“My husband was the driving force for pushing me into CrossFit a couple of years ago.  I was super nervous, but I had to see what the craze was all about because I love to be physically active and find new ways to push myself.  I've been addicted ever since!”

What do you love about being a coach?

“I love seeing people push themselves to be the best they can be. It’s awesome to hear stories about what drives them to be the best and it’s rewarding when they tell you you’ve made an impact!”

What’s your favorite workout?

“The shorter version of “Angie” with some heavy power cleans and rope climbs thrown in the mix.”
