NOVEMBER MEMBER SPOTLIGHT – GET TO KNOW STEVE ECHOLS

Name: Steve Echols

Hometown: Mahomet, IL

Occupation: Road Striper

How long have you been doing CrossFit? 9 months

What do you enjoy about CrossFit and being a member at KMC? I’m not highly self motivated. I like that the CrossFit family keeps me coming back. I enjoy being fit,I just don’t enjoy getting out of bed that early every day. But the KMC family makes it a little easier.

What’s your favorite exercise/movement in CrossFit? Can’t really pick one. I like how much stronger my legs are. I’m a big fan of overhead lifts, well lifting in general. But I’d have to say the pull ups are what I’m trying hardest at. It’s doesn’t always feel like we get big bicep workouts, so I’ve been giving everything I’ve got when we’re doing them.

What is one CrossFit/fitness related goal you are working to achieve? Murph. Unassisted. I think I’m close, but those darn pull ups.

What is your favorite food? Salt. jk Monica. I like all kinds and trying new stuff. I’m not picky and usually really enjoy different flavors. I could talk/eat for days about food and each new type would be my favorite at the time. However, Italian Christmas Eve dinner with my family is the best.

Favorite sports teams? Cubs/Bears/Blackhawks/🍀ND/ILLINI/Monticello

Where is one place you would like to visit? Montana hunting trip.

I’d like to add a little something since I have the stage. Thank you to CrossFit KMC. I had a tough go a few months ago and the people that I had just recently met helped pull us threw. I started CrossFit because I needed a gym and my wife wouldn’t leave me alone about it, literally. But it been a lot more than that to us. Thanks CFKMC!
