Matt & Kaia Kraus
How and when did you start doing CrossFit?
Kaia started when CFB was Brian & Leigh Niven’s garage in 2012. She dragged Matt into this insanity kicking and screaming in 2013.

Tell us a little bit about yourself. Family? Job? Hobbies?
We’ve been gleefully married for 22 years. Our three children are lucky to have us as parents.
Favorite WOD and Favorite Movement?
Kaia loves Isabell & Nancy and snatch. Matt loves any partner WOD with Kaia. His favorite movement is partner carry, specifically when he can carry Kaia, not some sweaty dude.

Least favorite WOD and Least Favorite Movement?
Kaia dislikes 12 Days of Christmas and dumbbell clean & jerk. Matt is miserable during any partner WOD without Kaia and hates a dumbbell thruster.

Your Favorite junk food?
Kaia loves a fresh bag of Costco’s Kirkland Organic tortilla chips. Matt’s not going to turn his back on any pizza – every slice deserves a chance.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want with you?
Kaia: pack of Extra Polar Ice gum, a bottomless Starbucks Americano and her iphone (with service so the Find My Friends app works).
Matt: a wallet sized photo of Kaia, a 5×7 photo of Kaia and a poster of Kaia

Describe yourself in one word?
Matt: Lover
Kaia: Fighter

If you could create a WOD, what would it look like?
Our partner WOD would be a chipper consisting of a high rep count of snatches, double unders and pull-ups with mandatory hugs between each movement.
