Michael Kriesel, 22, of Manlius, New York died in a car accident on January 6, 2013 while heading back to college. Mike was someone who adored his family and friends and lived his life to the fullest.
Mike joined CrossFit Dewitt begrudgingly. Mike was never one to back down from any activity or challenge, but CrossFit made him nervous. He was convinced, in the beginning, that he “sucked at everything”. Then it clicked. He learned the movements and challenged himself to improve…cheering on others in the process. He fell in love with CrossFit. Mike was known at CrossFit Dewitt for always wearing his hat, usually his Miami Dolphins hat, during the wods. Even if it got in the way! So, for Mike, we celebrate him and his love of CrossFit with a special wod…designed by his CrossFit Dewitt family…Hat’s a must!
