Meet a Member Monday

“Meet a Member Monday”……

Meet Charlie Koenn…he started CrossFit in May of 2016 and you’ll usually find him at CrossFit Dexter early in the morning – 6am classes are his favorite!  Charlie’s first CrossFit workout was an unofficial on a Sunday and he just showed up for the 30 deadlifts and 30 wallballs for 4 rounds.  Yikes.  Thanks for coming back, Charlie!

His favorite movements are air squats, handstand push-ups, deadlifts, cleans and box jumps.  Can we mention that when he started CrossFit he couldn’t jump a 24” box and now he can land a 39” box like a champ!  6am WOD’s can be tough, but Charlie is dedicated and is always pushing everyone to do their best.  He advises new members at CFD: “Just show up.  It’s like eating an elephant – one bite at a time.”  

What keeps Charlie coming back to CrossFit Dexter?  “The members, the excellent coaching and pushing myself to get better.”  Well done, Charlie!  We are excited to see what 2017 has in store for you!
