October Spotlight athlete of the month - Meet Joe!

Check out our Spotlight Member Page to read about our Current Athlete of the Month!


You know those people you think have been doing CrossFit for years but it's really only been a few months? Joe is one of those athletes. He started with us mid 2017 and hit the ground running. Everyday he walks in with a smile on his face and hunger in his heart to craft his sport. He intently listens to the instruction that our coaches offer, and he cares about mastering skills and performing with efficiency over an RX score. Joe is the type of athlete that every coach takes pride in, and is an outstanding example of the CrossFit culture. Walk into the gym and see a workout with running or body weight movements, and get ready to see Joe steal the show! He is lightning fast, and has an engine for days. With the dedication and progress Joe has made over these past few months, we are so excited to see the athlete that he will be in another year! Thanks for joining our family Joe, CFB wouldn't be the same without you!

A little about JOE!

Tell us about yourself?

I’m 25 years old. I moved to Seattle 2 years ago from Salt Lake City, Utah after being promoted to Field Service Manager with Delta Air Lines. I was born in Texas and have lived in Miami, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Spain. I ran track in high school and at the University of South Carolina.

How did you hear about CrossFit Burien?

I first heard about Crossfit Burien from my boss, Peter, who had previously been a part of the gym. After some friendly competition, we both decided to join the gym.

Why do you do Crossfit?

I joined Crossfit because I wanted to change my lifestyle and focus on my all around health and fitness. After starting, it not only has been helpful physically but it’s a great place to go to relieve stress and emotionally unwind after a long day. The people rock!!

What are a few of your favorite memories from Crossfit Burien?
