Connor is fondly remembered as the Original CrossFit Kid, having played an integral “guinea pig” role in Jeff and Mikki’s development of the CrossFit Kids program. He grew up immersed in CrossFit, attending and helping at many Level 1 courses and specialty seminars and participated at the first two CrossFit Games as a young teen competing against adults. From 2008 to 2015, his tenure on the CrossFit Inc. seminar staff included work with the CrossFit Kids, Level 1, and Level 2 seminar teams, a distinction earned by only a very few CrossFit Inc. instructors.
For Connor, 2015 was a year of tremendous growth and change. He and his family moved to Houston, Texas, where he took a job as Head Coach at the top-notch CrossFit EaDo. He also left CrossFit Inc. to devote time not only to his new gym but to his position as instructor for the TBXM™ Advanced Kids Course. He holds certificates in the TBXM™ Online Basic Kids Program, TBXM™ Advanced Kids Course, and TBXM™ Teen Weight Lifting Course.
In high school, Connor wrestled and ran cross-country. He has practiced Kenpo karate since age four and was the youngest student ever to receive a black belt at Brand X. He has a second-degree black belt in Kenpo and a yellow belt in Krav Maga, a Personal Defense Readiness certification based on Tony Blauer’s SPEAR system, a CrossPit and Pit Ohana certification through John Hackleman. Connor remains a committed CrossFit competitor.
Connor Martin is no longer associated with CrossFit Inc. and CrossFit Kids.
