About TJ Kiblen

I’m engaged to the beautiful Jessie Rood. I have 2 French bulldogs named Murph and Manion (Manny) they are named after hero WODs! My family is amazing and have helped shape me and guide me into who I am today!

Athletic Background

I was a regional (team) athlete back in 2016 and I got to compete against the best CrossFit athletes in the world including Rich Froning! Also, I’ve finished Top 200 twice in the region! I grew up with 3 older brothers so i was always playing in older age division in sports. I played football, baseball, basketball and soccer growing up! My first soccer game ever i scored 15 goals including 2 for the other team :). My main focus in high school was football where i lettered and started every game i played!

Turning Point

In 2011 I was struggling with the death of my brother and I was looking for anything to help me with my depression. I found CrossFit and it did so much for me. I started to feel better about myself, my energy levels increased, and I finally started feeling happy again. I told myself that anything that could pull me from such a low needed to be experienced by others who may need positivity in their life.I have now found that with a healthy lifestyle I can be the person I’ve always wanted to be. Nothing is stopping me from accomplishing my goals whether it’s running 5k’s or helping my mom lift a heavy couch. People need to understand that a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to cut everything out of your life. I like to teach the 90/10 rule, try to be healthy 90% of your life and 10% can be for those times where really want that piece of cake or that 2nd beer.

Passion

My purpose in coaching is helping people get their life back. It isn’t just about getting people fit, i have found through fitness i could get through some of the darkest situations and Crossfit just brings this unbelievable community and family feel. I truly get excited every day to drive in and help someone have a better day wether its hit their first pull up or just talk out somethings that are going on at home that they want to get off their chest. I believe i have the best job in the world.

Motivation

I was a little heavier growing up and had my brothers teasing me alot. So my desire to be known as a good athlete and a good person burns deeply.
