February Member Highlight

Meet Mike Thorpe! A member at Kirin Crossfit for A Year and a half, and an all around amazing dude.

WHy Did you start Crossfit?

“My rugby club in DC had weekly weight lifting in training sessions at a CrossFit affiliate. That, and the guys on the team did CrossFit were in the best shape. So I decided I would give it a try.”

What was your fitness like before crossfit?

“Meh. I would hit the gym and lift some weights, but nothing serious. And of course, I played a lot of rugby.”

If you could give your past self (before crossfit) some advise, what would it be?

“Don’t be intimidated by it.”

We noticed that you are quite consistent coming to the gym. What keeps you motivated to come to the gym 4 - 5x a week?

“I enjoy the workouts. I need them to clear my head every day and de-stress. That, and I enjoy my friendships there. But I’ve come to appreciate the humility most workouts force me to deal with, but also the exhilaration of workouts where I feel like I crushed it.”

What is the most annoying habit that other people have?

“Being unkind. But less seriously, people who do the entire warm up.”an


show ups, not show offs.

This isn't your meathead roommate's CrossFit.
This is everyone-is-welcome, 
Kick some ass,
Take a few names,
Go ahead and brag about it,



Since we understand how stressful taking on something new can be, especially when you’re doing the new thing in front of a group of strangers, we require all newbies to participate in our on ramp program before jumping head first into CrossFit.

Our on ramp program consists of six classes that teach you the basics of each CrossFit movement, and yes, you must complete all six before moving on—no ifs, ands or buts. 

The truth is, you’ll probably forget the names of the moves and even some of the details, but that’s totally ok. The point is to prepare you and make sure you don’t hurt yourself. Our highly qualified coaches have your back and will be in every class cheering you on.
