Our Story


KCI CrossFit is a first-class CrossFit gym where members are radically changing their lives physically, emotionally, and spiritually with a foundation of fitness.

Our Core Values are #GRATITUDEandGRIT. Gratitude is a mindset, and it’s also an action.  We live out our gratitude mindset through our daily actions. Gratitude means smiling. Looking people in the eyes. Active listening. High fives. Encouraging words. Lending a hand. Working hard. Never quitting. Making sacrifices. Saying “Thank You” and more! Grit is a verb too. Results don’t just happen, and there aren’t shortcuts. Hard work, persistence, integrity, and failure are all necessary parts of the process - whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle, or build confidence. You see, to change our bodies we must push outside of our comfort zone mentally and physically. We must make sacrifices. We must find a way when the way forward is unclear!  Developing and practicing grit is at the core! At KCI CrossFit, you can be apart of a strong community where you know that somebody cares about your fitness and progress. You don't have to go at it alone. You can be a part of a team and part of a community. You have a personal coach without the price of a personal trainer. Come to KCI CrossFit as you are. No matter what your fitness level today, you can start now and improve for tomorrow!

Our Mission





Part 1: It was all a dream

KCI CrossFit started as a dream between brother and sister combo; Nick & Christine. We both have a passion for helping others, personal growth & development, and of course, fitness! For us, being healthy and fit is essential to being happy and fulfilled and we were determined to help others achieve the same goals!

Part 2: Make it happen!

KCI CrossFit opened for business in 2014, shortly after Nick moved to Kansas City. Christine had been coaching a group of people and they became the founding members of KCI. Almost immediately KCI CrossFit seemed more like a family that just a gym membership. Relationships were formed, lifelong friends were made, and everyone was progressing in their fitness and fulfillment!

Part 3: Onward and Upward

Enter 2019 and KCI Members continue to improve their lives; achieve goals they had never dreamed of, lose weight they never thought they could, eliminate bad habits, and make lifelong relationships. KCI is a family at it’s core and we care about all of our members! Our caring coaches are here to help you too! You are welcome at KCI; no matter your fitness experience today – you can start where you are and make positive steps toward a fitter, more fulfilled you!
