If you don't know Kelly, you are missing out! She is one of the funniest people around, she's a great athlete and she's the brains behind the operation in her family (plus, she's the better looking one, too). More on Kelly…

I have made alot of friends through crossfit — Shout out to the 6pm crew! whoop whoop.
How did you hear about CrossFit/CFVB?
My husband Alex grew up with Rob.  While having lunch with him one day he started telling me about crossfit and that he and Wendy were going to open their own affiliate.  I was doing P90X at the time and was looking for something to do after I finished it; I had memorized all of the words Tony Horton said on each video.  I came into crossfit once they opened and I have been there ever since!

It's a toss up, Open Wod 11.1 or 12 days of Christmas / Front Squat

    Oh Kanuckles, what to say about you… I am simply your grasshoppa! I wanna be like you when I grow up!
    Btw – can you get Alex to stop asking me to grab his ass?

  2. Mr. Kanuckles

    First off im very proud of my wife.But a quick rebutteal is she doesnt run the house she is my assistant or im her assistant not really sure how that works.If WOD 4 is insults for time she will be head of the leader board.And Debbie the answer is no,stop smelling your finger after words that just gross

    Kelly is a great addition to the gym, filling in the big whole where Alex’s head used to be is a tough job. I’m still not watching any kids though

    We love the kanuckles’s. If it’s not alex’s goofy ass comments it’s definitely when mrs kanuckles brings cannon. I must say you guys have a beautiful son. Although I think he has the mailmans eyes. Lol. Alex you need to get that wrist back into shape and get your but back in the gym. Miss your antics.

  5. Lucy Lu

    Awww….. I do rank in our friendship 😉
    You ROCK girl and am so glad to be in your footsteps
    And I love your ballsy comments
    Who else gets away with that shit

  6. joe justado

    Yeeey!! Boob job to go with the new gym expansion. Two grand openings in one (j/k Kanucks, more torture for you tomorrow Alex,see you at the clinic).

  7. Tiney

    1) I’m jealous Kelly got a compliment from Big Tay…(sigh) maybe one day
    2) I love Kelly and her wise ass comments
    3) You are a great athlete and you can ride more than just jet skis.
    4) I wish I saw you more
    5) I’ll never forget doing my very first workout with Kelly. It happened to be “Kelly” and she walked out of the gym mid WOD. I thought to myself where the hell did that tall girl go?? Now she has been kicking my butt ever since. =)
    6) Shout out to the 6pmers!
    7) Still wondering how Alex broke his wrist…

  8. Tara

    So apparently if you’re not a “6PMer” you mean jack! I’m offended.
    I too love me some Kanuckles. We use to have some pretty tight competitions. Now she just laps me.
    My favorite thing about her is having someone to share in my smart ass comments and know she won’t judge and will more than likely have something just as sassy to say.

  9. Debbie Deb

    Tara, we have to come in at 6pm so we can see what we’re competing against by looking at your badass time!

  10. K2

    Your scarcasm and wit is unmatched. I appreciate stupid banter and childlike antics as your kids may be more mature than I am. You’re always going to be the first person I search out at the competitions to hang with.
    You guys are lucky to have Kanuckles as part of your box and as a friend.

    Kanuckles is fantastic in so many ways:
    1. Her witty/smart ass/ quick sense of humor is hard to match
    2. She is a BEAST!
    3. Her leopard hat is off the chain
    4. Her spelling skills are pretty spot on and if yours aren’t she will call you out (haikus too)
    5. She says what everyone else is thinking but doesn’t have the balls to say
    6. She has had some of the most clutsy moments at CFVB
    You are such a trip and we are so lucky to have you at CFVB!

    Kelly..trust me the boobs are not all they are cracked up to be and although they might help on the way down..not so much on the way up. Your children are beautiful and I don’t know how you do it all! You are def badass at crossfit!I look up too…literally.

  13. Rizza

    Yikes Wendy!!!! I did not know which one was worse-Grandma in Denial or the hairy guy in a banana hammock!! lol
    Yes Kelly you are a “Superstar”!!!

  14. You were a great mom Kelly. You were able to manage your time. I am hoping that your daughter will be the next cross-fit; it is not impossible. Good luck Kelly; more ideas to share.
