Kim Cowan: Athletic Background

Hi! I’m Kim. I’m that [real] human that sends you those texts when we don’t see you at the gym for a minute! My background is more in administration than fitness, but I’ve always been a lover of exercise, health, and wellness. I found Project Rise after curiously poking my head into the world of CrossFit. Living my life in my own, personal Amazing Race, I enjoyed having a place to push myself physically with an awesome community and was inspired by seeing coaches celebrate with members whenever they reached new fitness or nutrition goals.

I’ve always loved being able to support businesses and people I believe in, so after seeing the philosophies of Project Rise revolving around wellness and the genuine care of the coaches, I knew I would be proud to join the Project Rise team with a little of the action behind the scenes.

When I’m not at the gym or connecting with community members, I can be found on a spontaneous mountain adventure, playing music with friends around a campfire or in a bar, in an awesome local coffee shop, or on an ambulance (as an EMT). Other things I love: laughing, reading, hammocking, distillery tours, good wine, traveling, and football.
