Your Athlete of the Month- Kristen Walls!
I am proud to announce Kristen as this month’s Athlete of the Month! Now there is no vote on who should be athlete of the month, but when a member receives votes anyway, despite an election, it’s clear who the choice should be! Kristen has been at TILT since day 1, and actually before TILT took over from Pennant, Kristen was the first member to say hi to me. I dropped in to checkout the gym and meet some members and she was the first one to say hi and even during the workout (it was an EMOMO) wrote down my scores for me during the rest periods. Kristen is at the core of the positive and supportive community we have here at TILT, and truly deserves this honor! Congratulations Kristen!

What’s something that most people at TILT V may not know about you?
When I returned from my military deployment, my hometown named a day after me. August 2, 2013 was Captain Kristen Walls Day. What an absolute honor!
Where’s your favorite place in the world?
My favorite place in the world would be Italy. I had the opportunity to explore Rome when I was overseas and I fell in love. I can’t wait to take another trip there and to explore more of what the country has to offer.
What advice would you give someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit?
“Who you are tomorrow begins with what you do today.” -Tim Fargo
CrossFit is a pathway to increased fitness, health and overall wellness. If this is your goal, begin today by stepping into a box. Not only will you be a better and healthier person tomorrow, you will also gain some lasting support and friendships that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.
If there was a workout named “Kristen”, what would the workout be or what movements would the workout consist of?
I would say it would be an AMRAP consisting of power cleans, wall balls and push ups.
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would want to buy?
I would probably build my dream home.
