Meet our June Athlete of the Month - Sheryl Keller

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

My name is Sheryl Keller.  I have lived in Lake Bluff for 20 years with my husband and two daughters.  I work part-time with a Dermatologist in Glenview.  

Past athletic history?

I was never much of an athlete.  I started working out 15 years ago while my daughters were in school full day.  Running, biking, free weights and boot camps.

Why CrossFit? How did you find CrossFit Lake Forest?

I started Crossfitting in January 2015 at Crossfit 155 where my husband knew the coaches.  After 2 1/2 years of driving to Mundelein to workout, friends recommended I try Crossfit Lake Forest.

What do you love about CrossFit Lake Forest?

I loved CFLF from day one!  The incredible coaching staff, their personal attention to each athlete and their willingness to teach and not just coach.  I also love CFLF because all the wonderful individuals I get to work out with daily who continually push themselves and  encourage each other along the way.  Our gym is a unique and incredible community that I am so happy to be a part of.

Favorite or least favorite workout & Goals you are working on?


My favorite WOD has high cardio with a shoulder or squat strength component.  My least favorite includes pull ups and push ups.  That being said, my goal is to significantly increase my number of unbroken kipping pull-ups and HR push-ups.

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

For me, CrossFit has become a lifestyle.  It’s actually pretty simple, either you do it or you don’t.  You don’t always get what you wish for, you get what you work for!
