We wanted to feature Coach Kiel in this months newsletter for many reasons but, one, to thank him for writing an incredible 12-Week Strength Program for our TSC athletes. He played a big role in getting several of our students on the Leaderboard. He is so knowledgeable when it comes to programming (and making homemade pizza;) and his coaching is only a fraction of why we love this guy so much. Thank you Coach for your hard work, dedication to our practice, passion to learn and educate others, for your dance moves and keeping us in stitches all the time.
We asked Kiel a handful of fun questions so you can get to know him a little better…
Q: What is your favorite color?
K: Purple, duh.
Q: What would your spirit animal be?
K: Polar Bear, because they are majestic as fuck.
Q: If you could have one super power what would it be?
K: Probably like everyone else, flying.
Q: What is your favorite exercise/movement?
K: Single arm overhead step back lunge. I don't know why it's my favorite.
Q: Favorite cheat meal?
K: Probably all you can eat wings at Wingdome or Taco Tuesday at Red Star
Q: When did you start working for FUELhouse?
K: November 2017
Q: What are you currently training for?
K: TSC is May 4th, then I'm going to go for running a Sub 5 min mile
Q: And where do you find your motivation when the workout looks difficult or you are lacking energy?
K: I just tell myself to stop being a little ____, like honestly I'll say that under my breath. Either that or I think about 4 days from now, looking back and thinking to myself what it would be like to miss a work out simply because I was "tired".
Q: What would you say to someone thinking about starting FH?
K: Don't be nervous, we're really friendly here. It's a great place to grow, whether its your body confidence, your biceps, or your friend base.
Q: What are some of your goals in or out of the gym? Personal Records or achievements that your proud of?

Q: Anything else you’d like to share with our fitfam?
K: The 5am classes have plenty of room for you! Also sometimes I dance in class, I simply can't help myself sometimes.
