Solution 1 Member Highlight:
Kristal Gooch, age 42, Mom of Taylor (24) and Talen (19) who are also members at Solution1. I am a Registered Nurse in the PACU at Children’s Mercy Hospital.
*What was your fitness/health background before s1?
I didn’t play any sports in highschool. I didn’t even start working out until I was around 30. I started by just walking on my treadmill for 30 min every morning.
*What might have stood in your way of joining a crossfit gym in the past? I felt out of place at both gyms! No one was really welcoming so I never went back and thought all crossfit gyms must be the same until I decided to try Solution 1.
*What has been your biggest transformation since joining Solution 1?
My biggest transformation is learning that consistency and balance is the key to a happy healthy life, not chasing aesthetics. Once you focus on workouts you enjoy doing and knowing what food makes your body feel good, the aesthetics will naturally come.
*What goals have you met through s1?
I do obstacle races with my son all over and enjoy it so much!! I have made a huge improvement in my overall ability to complete every obstacle, along with having the endurance to complete the races and even place in the top 10 in my age group. I feel so much stronger!
*How do you feel crossfit benefits you personally/emotionally/
I am so thankful and blessed to be able to workout with my daughter, son in law, and son. I definitely thank God for giving me the ability and strength to continue doing what I love with the people I love. You have no control over the length of your stay on earth, however you have control over the quality of your life.
If you’re looking for a community that motivates you, holds you accountable, cheers you on when you don’t think you can do one more rep, while having a variety of workouts that are never routine or boring, Solution 1 is your place to be ?. You need to live outside of your comfort zone in order to grow both mentally and physically. I moved 45 minutes away last year and realize there are other crossfit gyms closer to me, however I enjoy Solution 1 so much I will continue to make the drive.
