It’s time for another Meet the Team Tuesday. This month we are featuring the one and only, Kristi Lunny. Kristi joined us a few years ago when she moved to the Seacoast from Champlain Valley in Vermont. You may know her from her tough warm-ups and activation drills or might have seen her training hard day in and day out as a Master’s CrossFit Games athlete. She is a fierce competitor and passionate coach, and we are lucky to have her expertise, experience, and fire as a part of our team. Get to know a little more about Coach Kristi below!
1. First, tell us about how you got started with Crossfit and what brought you to the Port?
I started CrossFit at Champlain Valley CrossFit in the summer of 2010. I was reading about CrossFit in a magazine and it caught my eye. I checked it out online and there was not an affiliate in Vermont at the time. A friend of mine told me about a guy starting CrossFit workouts at a local park. I went and absolutely loved it!!! He, Jade Jenny, opened the first box in Vermont and I was there from the beginning. My husband and I moved to the Seacoast in 2017 and The Port was one of the boxes I visited. I loved the community and the vibe, joined right away!!
2. What is your favorite part about being a Coach?
I love being a coach and seeing the progress each individual makes. It is really cool to watch someone crush their goals. One of my favorite parts is seeing someone doubt themselves and then surprise themselves by actually doing what they thought was an unrealistic goal!
3. What are some things you love to do outside of the gym?
I love movement of all types! I also teach yoga and Kinstretch. I also love golfing!!
4. If you were an existing or new color addition to the crayon box, what would you be and why?
Aqua Blue. Not a new one, just my favorite one!
5. Tell us your favorite cheat meal/treat?
Absolutely dark chocolate.
