Alicia Kuhn is a woman we are very proud of and who is an inspiration to every coach and member here at our gym. Why is she special to us? Why is she unique? Why do we love working with her and feed off of her energy daily?
Alicia is a strong, fit, competent woman. She came to us to years ago this month after dabbling in boot camp and healing up from discectomy back surgery. For the last two years we have seen a huge transformation in her physically and mentally. And she has let go of her injury and healed!! Alicia trains five days a week, she loves rowing and lifting. She can go to a place not many others can on a rower and she does it without much effort!
When she walked into our gym she found it to be a good fit just for her. She has learned how to eat well, and how to modify her food plan in order to have a little fun on the weekends, but stay within the boundaries of staying on track for her gym goals.
Alicia Turned 28 years old this year. She recalls during her high school years her back was “not happy” and constantly hurting. The pain continued for years. After many therapies with very little improvement, she opted for surgery 4 years ago.
Within that year she dedicated herself to a very good coach and boot camp gym, from him and with his suggestion she found her next step on the way to Ute CrossFit and fell in love with CrossFit. The biggest changes Alicia feels from her adaptations here are her overall lifestyle improvements. She feels happier, she is more positive in all corners of her life and she feels fit, put together, and she feels STRONG with no pain!
She loves goal setting. Every month she has a new goal in front of her. In the past two years we have seen her put focus into rowing, running, and Olympic Lifting. She’s great at lifting, rowing is another one of her strengths and even though running is her weakness she still works to become better at it. This is what we love about her! Alicia walked into our Gym and made a commitment to become a better, version of herself and she builds on that daily. To us and our community we call her a success.
