Friday Fire: Katie Willis

Friday Fire: Katie Willis

Check Katie Willis out! A regular at the 6am class, we hear that she’s quite the inspiration to a group of people. Word on the street is that she’s become quite the runner in the 5k and 10k department as well!

Not only is Katie an avid Grapevine CrossFitter, she’s quite the business woman. She was recently recognized as the “Leader Under 40” at this year’s International CenterBuild conference.

This competitive submission acknowledges the next generation of influential thought leaders in design, retail, construction, and development throughout the industry. Previous recipients are widely recognized as a diverse, impactful, and aggressive network of innovators.

The final evaluation of the yearlong nomination and selection process included a video crew shadowing Katie for a “day in the life”. Katie choose to start her “day in the life” video, much like she starts most days, at Grapevine CrossFit.

Katie says:

“CrossFit in the mornings is my coffee, it jumpstarts my day by providing me not only a burst of energy but a sense of accomplishment so I am confident that I can move anything, literally and figuratively, that gets in my way”.

“I especially appreciate the coaching staff at GVCF, they always have a helpful tip for incremental improvement, so I can continue to get better and better.”

Check out the highlight video for more on Katie’s achievements and the impact of CrossFit in her worklife.

Keep it up Katie! You continually inspire people everyday for all your accomplishments both in and out of the gym!
