Featured Athletes – Michael Kethan

My name is Michael Kethan and I can say honestly that joining CrossFit has been one of the best decisions I ever made in my life! My CrossFit journey began 5 years ago as I found myself at age 38 in a doctor’s office being handed prescription medications for High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, and insulin for my “pre-diabetic” blood sugar levels. I was 50-60 pounds overweight and facing a lifetime of prescription medications to counteract both my lack of physical fitness and good eating habits. Having watched my father die early as a result of diabetes and renal failure, I quickly decided that I would do whatever it took to change my lifestyle without prescription medications. Fortunately for me, I have a friend named Hardy Frank who had been encouraging me to come and try CrossFit Beaumont with him. One day in June 2015, several months into doing both P90X and Insanity, I was fed up with the lack of results and I took him up on the offer. That decision altered the course of my life as it has completely changed the way I think, eat, exercise, and live, all for the better.

The CrossFit Beaumont facility is, in my opinion, the best gym I have ever seen, without question. What sets them apart from the rest of the competition are the coaches. They are dedicated to helping you achieve the best possible version of yourself that you can be, from their extensive knowledge of the programming and movements contained therein, to their expertise on nutrition and recovery. The community of people at CrossFit Beaumont have become friends and family to me, and it has changed my life for the better. Thank you CrossFit Beaumont.
