“…most importantly given me a family away from home.”


We’re talking with CrossFit 317 member, Matt Kallai this week for Member Monday. Matt became part of our community in the fall of 2013 after a very humbling first day. Read on to learn more about Matt and his story.

How has your training at CrossFit 317 impacted your life outside of the gym?
“It has made me more fit to be able to do my job and daily activities better, but also and most importantly given me a family away from home.”

Is there a 317 memory that you would like to share?
“Yes, my most vivid memory is the first day I came to 317. I thought I was a very in shape wrestler from college and was humbled very quickly during my first WOD. I didn’t come back for four days because I was so sore and couldn’t move. But after the soreness went away, I was addicted to CrossFit.”

What’s you favorite movement in CrossFit?
“There are a few that I love. It will come as no surprise to people who know me. Deadlifts and box jumps are at the top of that list.”

If asked to sum up 317 in one word, what would it be?

What do  you love to do in your free time?
“I love to get to the gym as much as I can if I have free time. But what I love to do in my free time the most is spend as much time as I can with my babies, and my family/friends.”
