Member Spotlight: Jamie Kampman

If you haven’t yet met Jamie Kampman, well, that’s your own damn fault. Jamie is fun, friendly, and freaky fast at every WOD. She also is unabashedly curious about you all of the time no matter what you’re doing or where you are, so instead of us telling her all of our most shallow and deepest darkest (because she will ask), we’re gonna learn a bit about her.

Q: What got you hooked on CrossFit?

A: I’m a little competitive…

Q: What is the biggest way you’ve seen your fitness help others?

A: I love inviting people into what I’m doing. If it’s nutrition stuff or working out. I would much rather do it with people. I loveeee seeing people get excited about fitness and seeing their lives change!

Q:  If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

A: Really good Mexican; chips, queso, salsa and guacamole and a spicy margarita.

Q: What led you to adopt Bubba and how is he so cute and perfect?*

A: As I was looking over these questions earlier and thinking about this question it makes me cry so much. I can’t imagine our lives without Bubba. He is our son and God knew he always would be. A long time ago in college my mentor had adopted, and so that’s where my heart started towards adoption. The more I read about God and His heart is when I knew I wanted to adopt (and when I met my hubs he did too). When I would read my bible, I saw that we were all far from God in our brokenness. And When Jesus died and rose again, He offered for us to turn from our brokenness, believe, and be adopted into his family — believe and BE ADOPTED! We can all have that! What?! That’s amazing news! This made adopting Bubba even more sweet! He is AMAZING and I would adopt 20 more times but the hubs said he is donesy!

Q: What is one fun fact about yourself that we would all be surprised to know?

A: I shave my legs and armpits everyday! Also, when I get nervous or someone scares me, my armpits tingle.

Tingly armpits? Add weird to the aforementioned list. We love you (and Bubba, and hubs, and your other 1,000 children), Jamie!
