Athletes of the Month

Minta & Michael Keller

Minta:

I was introduced to CrossFit by Michael.
If I never had to do overhead squats, that would be great.
If I had to make up my own workout it would have running, cleans and burpees 
I’m married to my hero, have 3 kids and one coming August, we homeschool and work together on goals in the 4 areas of faith, knowledge, being a servant leaders in our community and taking care of our bodies. 


My proudest accomplishment is my marriage, but I’ll always be working to be the best wife and friend to Michael.


Biggest accomplishment at Bear Canyon is pushing through the physical challenges of pregnancy and continuing to come workout.


I love milk duds!!!


Favorite workout music- 80s and Christian.


I love all the cool people I get to meet and learn from at the gym. 


If I had a friend that wanted to try CrossFit I would tell them they can do it! That it could be just what they need like it has been for me.


Bear Canyon has helped me by encouraging me, providing consistent and safe workouts and supporting me and accepting me where I’m at. I feel safe to come as I am and then try to be just a little better every day when I’m there.
