Kari has been at CrossFit Innerdrive for just over year, and started after her daughter, Cassie, encouraged her to join. She was also very intrigued to learn stuff with a barbell after watching a competition where the loud music hooked her and got her to start. I think a lot of us can agree that bench pressing is always fun and it’s actually Kari’s favorite movement! Her love of shoulder movements isn’t universal, however, because she just can’t get double unders, and she has the whip marks to prove it.
During the months here in Minnesota when it’s warm enough, Kari enjoys getting outside for hikes or kayaking. When she’s relaxing inside though her go to treat is popcorn, and bonus points if its coconut flavored! In her everyday life though she’s thankful to CrossFit for making her take the time to think if she is moving properly to avoid common injuries. Recently Kari just got the all clear from an injury she had been dealing with for quite a while, but she didn’t skip a single day. She had the amazing evening crew that she’s always in to keep her motivated to keep coming, and once the workout starts it’s the loud music that keeps her pushing there.
