GC resident competes in 2017 Cross Fit Games

Mike Kern at the 2017 CrossFit Games Mike Kern at the 2017 CrossFit Games Current resident and Garden City High School alumnus Mike Kern recently competed at the 2017 CrossFit Games in Madison, WI on August 2ndthrough 5th. This was Mike’s second trip to the CrossFit Games, placing 6th overall within the Men’s Masters 40-44 year old division. This year, Mike faced a fierce set of competitors and an even fiercer set of events. As the ultimate test of fitness, the CrossFit Games will throw anything and everything at this elite group of athletes. For four grueling days, Mike’s strength, speed, agility, balance, and endurance were tested in 10 different events including a swim/ run biathlon, a one rep max snatch, and even an obstacle course.

Mike has been an athlete all of his life, wrestling and playing football for Garden City High School and Muhlenberg College. However, it wasn’t until four and a half years ago that Mike made one of the best decisions of his life and walked into CrossFit Garden City. Enamored with the fun, competitive, and overwhelmingly positive atmosphere of CrossFit Garden City, Mike quickly fell in love with the sport of fitness. Fast forward through several years of tireless hard work and dedication, Mike now stands among this very elite group of men and women who have been dubbed the “Fittest on Earth.”
