Box Brief:
Congrats to Kelci for being the July Member of the Month at Apollo! Scroll down to learn more about Kelci.


Congrats on being the July Member of the Month! Do you feel any different? Like you’re walking on clouds or nervous about all the paparazzi you’re about to deal with?
I’m honored! A bit nervous about the paparazzi, but luckily I know some strong people who would have my back (right friends?)

How did you get started in CrossFit and what keeps you coming back to Apollo?
Growing up I was in a few competitive sports (synchronized swimming and lacrosse) so when a friend introduced me to CrossFit in 2014 I was hooked. I loved the camaraderie and competitive atmosphere. I love the community at Apollo and that’s what’s kept me coming back, it’s truly like a big family!

What is the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you? Don’t hold back!
Oh wow, I really had to think about this one because I am constantly embarrassing myself. I’d have to say the first time I ever tried banded pull ups. I was at LVAC and didn’t know that I needed to keep the band secure around my foot in a certain way.. so I let the band slip and it snapped up between my legs. Oh man did it hurt, and I was stuck.. so my trainer and the few people around me had to help me get the band out and get down from the pull up bar.

Your fitness has gone to a new level in the last couple of years. What’s been the difference maker? What motivates you?
Being diligent and intentional with my nutrition and training! I started tracking macros really seriously a couple of years ago and dropped about 30 pounds. I had no idea what a difference it would make for how I feel and perform every day but that’s what’s kept me motivated to stick with the consistency!

Describe your absolute perfect day.
A weekend, spring day so the weather is perfect and I get to sleep in and relax a bit! Start the day with an iced latte and a workout that has heavy front squats and pull ups (my favorites). Take the dogs for a walk, cuddle with my hairless kitties and then end the day spending time with friends and a nice dinner – sushi or Korean bbq!

Would you rather have, more time or more money? Why?
More time! I always wish there was more time in a day or on the weekend to spend with family and friends. Time with people you love is more valuable than money!
