Kir Newhard


Kir is a mountain girl, plain and simple. She played lots of sports growing up in Aspen, and is now raising four kids here with her awesome husband Penn. Her best days are adventuring with them via rock climbing, river trips, hiking 14ers, skiing, etc. She loves to backcountry ski, hike, climb, run, and bike. Her latest addiction is—of course—Crossfit! Crossfit has provided two things for Kir: the balance her body needs as an athlete, and a like-minded community of athletes with whom to work out. The men and women at Aspen Crossfit inspire her daily. At age 40, Kir started throwing out her back and spending two weeks in bed every six months due to disc problems. Two years later, she tried Crossfit as a last-ditch effort to heal her back, and it worked! Kir received her CrossFit Level 1 certificate in 2013 because she wants to help other local athletes realize their potential. She loves when a new AC athlete pushes a substantial amount of weight over their head for the first time and when the seasoned athlete continues to reach their PR!
