My name is Matt Kallai and I am 29 years old, I have been married to my beautiful wife Christina for almost 7 years now, We met back in college at Cleveland State where I wrestled and she played Basketball. I have wrestled for over 20 years, I also have a 110lbs Chocolate Lab which is like a child to my wife and I. I work for Beazer homes as a purchasing pofessional, and was in the field as a project manager for 7 years prior to moving to purchasing.
A Friend of mine had started doing CrossFit at a small gym, and told me that he thought I would like the workouts, so I saw a sign for CrossFit 317 and stopped in.
My first experience was going to the gym for a test out class and having to do Box Jumps, Kettle Bells, and pushups.
I first started working out at Crossfit 317 back in Feb, and have been addicted ever since.
Yes this is the first Crossfit Box that i have ever worked out at. I have been CrossFitting for about 6 months now.
I knew right away that CrossFit was was for me, I love the intensity and the variation of the workouts and the Atmosphere of the box. The Great people that I work out with at the gym really make working out a great experience.
My short term goal would be to continue to Increase my over all understanding of all the Crossfit movements and work on my form. Long Term goal would have to be to make it to the Crossfit Regionalas an individual or with the Great team we have at the box.
My Biggest accomplishment has to be that I have just over all gotten stronger and healthier since i have started CrossFit. Through out my wrestling career i have had many surgery’s due to not getting the proper instruction on how to lift properly or eat right, and now with the guidance of the great coaches I have I feel great.
