Do you know what Seattle is famous for? Starbucks, grunge music, and evergreens, of course. But did you know it’s also the city with the newest Invictus location? (That = famous in our books!) We thought the Emerald City would be the perfect spot for our next Invictus location because – well, it’s green – and we already have a core crew of coaches and athletes there ready to share the joy of fitness with other Seattleites.
Invictus Seattle will be led by two incredibly inspiring individuals – Kevin Koester and Justin Gehrt. Kevin is a 2x CrossFit Games Masters Champion who demonstrates that age is merely a number, and we all can age with strength and grace. Justin weighed over 400 pounds at one point and is an example that there is no rock bottom you cannot work yourself out of while embracing the beauty in the process. (Learn more about Justin’s story here.)
Despite their disparate backgrounds, Kevin and Justin bonded around hard work and a drive to be the masters of their fates. They’ve committed to sharing their experiences and knowledge to make the world a healthier place, starting in their own community. Please wish them well and follow along with the community’s progress on Instagram at @invictusseattle.
