Get to Know: Jordan Barney, CrossFit KMC Manager
Why Jordan decided to work in healthcare:
"I was coaching CrossFit and attending Millikin for Health, Fitness,
and Recreation. I wanted to do something that pertain to CrossFit and
healthcare. This was the best way to incorporate both. Thank goodness
there was an opening!"
"My favorite part of my job is working with so many different types
"Being a part of the Kirby Team, I have gained better leadership skills
and how to truly care for people and to make working out the best hour
of their day."
A little bit about Jordan's life outside of Kirby:
"I married my wife Tabitha on October 8, 2018. She works for Kenwood
Elementary in Champaign, IL. She is determined, hardworking, and sweet
as can be. In addition, my parents reside in Decatur, IL along with my
brother/sister-in-law and my oldest brother lives in Chatham, IL. The
most exciting part about 2019 is buying our first home!
Working out is my number one hobby outside of work. Outside of working
out, bike riding, playing catch, tennis, and soon to be hobby, house projects.
If I had an extra hour each day, I would spend more time with Tabitha."
What has been the best moment of your career so far?
There are so many. I would say, seeing anyone get a PR.
Jordan's typical work day:
.A typical work day of mine involves, getting to the gym at 4:15am, getting
the music playing, and greeting all members before a CrossFit class starts.
In addition, most days are spent with answering questions regarding CrossFit
KMC, KMC 30, or KMC Endurance.
