Today we embark on a very sad yet enlightened day. Here at 619 we not only value what opportunity we offer our members but strongly uphold to what kind of members make 619 a success. Kevin Kaiser, just 24 years of age has begun a unique and ever so demanding new journey in life. Today marks his first day as an elite member of Officer Candidate School (OCS) in Newport, Rhode Island in which he will become a part of the Pilot Officer Program for the United States Navy. Kevin is what we call a “beast” here at 619. His performance here has been astounding and fascinating to watch. He has set and achieved fitness goals beyond what anyone could imagine the body to be capable of. He has set new PR records on every skill and continues to be at the top and his capabilities are endless and a sure thrill to witness. Kevin has played a very important role within our Crossfit family because he really has touched many lives but also has touched many hearts; the kid truly has a heart of gold. His strength and mental courage are one of a kind. With this, he has led a strong following to reach new levels. He has shown sheer determination for himself day in and day out, always striving for the best not once but sometimes two times a day. His experience and efforts with Crossfit are ever so humbling and with his efforts he will succeed at whatever he dives into. It is a given that he will set new athletic records in training and will shock them without a doubt. We are so proud to have Kevin grace 619 with his presence and he will be missed dearly. We are honored to have such a delightful man fight for our country and take action with his head held high. Kevin, we thank you and send you on your way.
