August Member of the Month Kevin Jackson
OG Body Movement Wizard
Kevin is one of our OG’s/original members at Fort Miami CrossFit. He’s a body movement wizard and although he’s always “slightly” late to class, he always brings a smile and hard work when he comes (and usually a mug of coffee). Kevin has a beautiful family, including his wife (Nicole), 2 boys (Kaiden 10 & Gabe 4), and a badass mother (‘Mo’). His biggest gainz have been “the relationships that have come with such a positive atmosphere as well as the mental toughness and confidence that comes from constantly trying to overcome challenges and improvements.” We’re so thankful to have him in our family and to have him as our August Member of the Month!
1. What do you do for a living?
I fly a desk for KitchenAid
2. Why did you choose FMCF?
I have known Kip and Kelly since they were coaches at CrossFit Tides (where I used to work out). I can remember Kip being my first nutrition coach and I admired the overall approach to health they modeled as opposed to solely lifting heavy things all the time. They started FMCF shortly after Gabe we born and when I was ready to join a gym again, I dropped in and have been here ever since.
3. What is your favorite CrossFit workout/movement?
Amanda - Or anything with muscle ups or snatches
4. Who inspires you?
Lots of people. You can find inspiration all over if you look for it. Guys like Jacob and Lukas are very inspiring, but it’s also great to see someone get their first pull up or hit a PR clean and jerk, those moments are just as inspiring to me.
5. Favorite cheat meal?
Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream!!
6. What do you do for fun, other than CrossFit?
Ride dirt bikes, bowhunt, family camping trips, offroad in the jeep, I’m always up for an adventure.
7. Anything else I should know?
Nah, I like to keep it simple. Thanks to everyone who helped me in my journey over the last 5 years!
