A lifelong Kansan, Joe Klassen, began his CrossFit journey in November of 2020. Joe walked into CrossFit and the evidence of a very unhealthy lifestyle was all over him. He had hit his peak of both weight and blood pressure. He found a love for the community first and the physicality of CrossFit shortly after. As of this writing (Aug 2021) he has lost 70 lbs and dropped 40 points off his blood pressure. Joe is a husband to an amazing wife for 20 years, father of 3, and pastor of a local church. His favorite movement is deadlift and his favorite WOD is Jackie (rowing is the absolute best).
