We are grateful to invite Kristin to the American Gainz Squad. Kristin who is very well known within the global Crossfit community for her time spent dominating the Crossfit Team division the last few years has set her sights back onto the Individual Division for the 2018 Crossfit Season. Kristin’s free spirited nature paired with her addiction for competition creates the perfect balance between fascinating human and fierce athlete; the exact balance the American Gainz brand loves to be partnered with. We are proud to announce that we’ve teamed up with Kristin to support her on her 2018 Crossfit Games run!!!
After watching “A Day in the Life of Kristin Reffett” we’ve realized that attempting to explain Kristin on paper is just too 2-dimensional, however we brought you the basics. This next season you will most certainly be exposed to her talents during the South Regional (assuming regions don’t change) where she will have the chance to compete alongside other American Gainz Teammates and Regional & Games individual athletes; Bethany Branham, Jenn Astle, Brittany Chestnut, Amanda Garces, and Teresa Trojanowksi.
During her time in college, Kristin balanced the demands of being a both Student & NCAA Athlete, ultimately graduating in 2011 from Murray State University with a bachelor’s in Accounting and MBA with an emphasis in accounting. Throughout her time at Murray State, Kristin competed as an endurance athlete on both the University’s Track & Cross-County teams.
Post college, Kristin accepted an accounting job which brought her to Nashville, TN. It was here at Crossfit Nashville where Kristin fell in love with the sport of fitness. After a couple years of working as an accountant and ready for a change, Kristin decided to follow her passion and pursue a career in health & fitness!
Since then Kristin has marked her 5th year as a Crossfit Coach & Personal Trainer achieving the following certifications to further develop her passion for fitness knowledge:
- CrossFit level two
- USAW level
- ACSM - Certified Personal Trainer
After Kristin’s first year going team in 2014 supporting Crossfit Nashville to the Central East Regional, Kristin joined up with Crossfit Mayhem. Over the next 3 years, team Crossfit Mayhem performed at a historical level claiming two 1st place finishes at the 2015 & 2016 Reebok Crossfit Games followed by a 2017 2nd place finish.
After this past 2017 season Kristin made the decision to get back to the individual side of the competition. She’s currently executing her transition to Colorado and looking forward to a new adventure while making a fierce run towards qualifying for the 2018 CrossFit Games. No doubt 2018 will be a great change in pace and allow Kristin to dial in her other passions for rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking all while training.
