This week we catch up with Kim McLeod for #membermonday •Crossfitting since: September 2013. •A little about yourself: I was born in Toronto (eh?) and moved to the states in middle school. I grew up in a small town in Michigan. I have a BS in Psychology and moved to Wisconsin in 2009 for my first big kid job. I was athletic for most of my life. I started playing soccer in elementary school, was on varsity for all four years of high school, and lifted three days a week. College was a huge change for me as it was the first time in my life I wasn't playing a sport and the first time I was introduced to the 'all you can eat' lifestyle that my campus supported. Oh, and beer. I struggled with my relationship with food for most of my college career and was also diagnosed with a gluten sensitivity. After four years of malnutrition and trying to figure out what exactly this 'gluten' stuff was I graduated college at a well rounded 200 pounds. Moving to Wisconsin was probably the best thing that could have happened to me. I didn't know anyone so I spent most of my free time at the gym. My first year out of college I dropped 50 pounds by tracking everything I ate and running it off later and was well on my way to losing my patience and most of my muscle mass. I knew something had to change. •How did you get into CrossFit?: I decided to try CrossFit when I saw the amazing things that it did for Rose Kolupar when she joined to get fit for her wedding. I set my alarm for an ungodly early hour and have been a 6am-er ever since. Thankfully Rose has proven to be my perfect swolemate and we've kept each other motivated the last three years. •How has CrossFit changed you outside the gym? : I think the most important thing that CrossFit has helped me attain is a healthy relationship with food. People think that all we do is high five and smash weights (which we do), but the best part about CrossFit is that the body is seen as a machine that not only needs to exercise, but also recover, stretch, and fuel properly. I wasn't a fan of seeing the number on my scale go up at first, until I realized that I was packing on solid, healthy muscle. #fitfam #mondaymotivation #badgerbuilt
