September Athlete of the Month – Katie Steinhoff


This month we have selected Katie Steinhoff as our athlete of the month!  Many of you have probably seen Katie around the gym at some point.  She typically comes in the early morning with her husband, Paul, but also came to other classes throughout the summer because they are both teachers.  Katie has made some CRAZY gains in the last few months, specifically on her olympic lifts.  She recently had a 20-lb PR on her snatch!  Her work ethic recently has not only led to many recent personal records but also this nomination as our September Athlete of the Month!  Katie, keep lifting big, having fun, and being an awesome person and friend around the gym!

Name: Katie Steinhoff

Started at Mission CrossFit SA: February 2014

Favorite WOD: Karen or Grace. Tough choice.

Least Favorite WOD: Any. AMRAP. Ever. Created.

Favorite Lift: the snatch! Shout out to an awesome afternoon Barbell Class 😉

Least Favorite Lift: The jerk. Mainly because of it’s name. Makes me want to really not like it. And I keep switching my feet when I land. I don’t know. It’s weird.

Story: A little over 3 years ago, I bought a Groupon for a month of Crossfit for my husband’s birthday, thinking “oh this might be kind of cool for us to try!” Best. Purchase. Ever.  Day one we decided we loved it and never looked back. Globo Gyms were not for us anymore! I found a confidence in myself, my body, and my life that I truly believe I could not have found in any other community. I feel so incredibly thrilled to have found this Mission community and can’t wait to see more of what I can continue to accomplish with the support of my husband, coaches and friends that I’ve made in my short time here! Thank you!
