Tommy Kim was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma, a cancerous and malignant brain tumor on Jan 27, 2014. Tommy has undergone a brain resection surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible before starting radiation and chemotherapy treatment. As with all brain surgeries, the impact on his cognitive and motor abilities is uncertain. Hence his ability to support himself in the future is uncertain as well. This type of brain tumor is fast growing and has a 100% recurrence rate, therefore Tommy faces a lifelong battle. Subsequent surgeries and ongoing treatment are highly likely. Just as Tommy’s medical battle will be ongoing, so will his financial burden. Tommy’s family is now looking to raise money to pay for the medical expenses and to support his health regimen as he enters a period of intensive treatments.

For those who don’t know Tommy as well as others, here’s a little bio…Tommy was born on March 5, 1980, in Atlanta, Georgia. Tommy graduated from Colorado State University where he played collegiate lacrosse. Following the tragic events of 9/11, Continue reading

One of our members wrote this on Facebook.  Terrence is an awesome guy- and I am so glad he is part of our CrossFit family, we are better for having him in the gym.  This is why I love coaching.  I am glad I can be part of this journey, and see Terrence challenge himself and conquer skill after skill.  He is someone we look up to everyday.

terrence as kidWhen I was in the 5th grade my parents made me play football. I hated it. The other boys made fun of me and called me names. To make it better I told myself, repeatedly, that I was not an athletically competitive person. When my parentsfinally let me quit, I never played sports again. Fast forward to present … I just completed the Crossfit Open this week. I hoped to be in the top half of my division, I ended up in the top third. So what’s my point? I learned that not only are sports fun, being part of a team is great, and I’m a fiercely competitive athlete. And most importantly, it’s never too late to rewrite you.
