Meet July Athlete of the Month - Kale Polich!

Meet our July Athlete of the Month, Kali Polich! Even though she is a full-time nursing student, she has completely dedicated herself to CrossFit. She has transformed both her lifestyle and body by working out and changing her diet! Having lost over 20 pounds, Kali is a great example of how hard work and determination pay off. We also love that her family is following her lead and changing their habits too. We are super proud and excited to have Kali be our featured athlete this month.

1.  Your story. Who are you? What do you do when you are not here (job, school, etc)? Past athletic history.


I'm currently almost halfway through getting my Masters in Nursing from DePaul. If I'm not studying or at CFLF, then I'm most likely at my part-time job at Athleta. 

My past athletic history: I played travel club soccer from elementary school all the way through high school and then club in college. 


2.  Why CrossFit?? How did you find CFLF?

I wanted something that challenged me but still had a group feel to it. I'd been hearing it mentioned from some people from undergrad but there wasn't a gym close to campus. When I moved back to the area after graduating it seemed like the time to try it. I found CFLF by googling CF near me and looking into each of the options. 


3.  What do you love about CrossFit and CFLF?

I enjoy the atmosphere when working out and that although it can be competitive, it's still very

friendly. The best part of CFLF is from the get-go everyone is extremely welcoming and encouraging. 

4.  Favorite workout? Least favorite?


My favorite workout involves the barbell, especially snatching. I'm not the biggest fan of thrusters. 

5.  Goals or things you’re working on.


Right now my main focus is finishing up school, but fitness-wise I want to be able to do a double under and hopefully increase the number of pull ups I can do in a row. 

6.  One piece of advice about CrossFit, life, anything!!


My advice, cheesy though it is: do things that make you happy and take time to relax.
