Farewell to

Kaitlynn “Panda” Warr (crossfit)

Panda has been with Team Octopus for just over 3 years through many personal transitions – marriage and the birth of a son. We’re very sad to say that Friday, December 14th will be her last class with Team Octopus. Panda will be moving with her family out of state.

We wish her all the best as she starts this new chapter in a new home! She’s been such a great person and coach here with us, so, no doubt, opportunity will find its way to her in her new city!

Coach of the Month :(Midtown) Huong Siegel
At a friend’s urging, Huong finally tried out Crossfit. She was hooked and never looked back. She loved it so much that she wanted to share her passion for Crossfit with others and decided to get her Level 1. Seeing how Crossfit transformed her strength and power, she loves to empower women to lift heavy to get stronger. Huong’s background of lifting came from the bodybuilding world where she competed in figure competitions. When she’s not coaching or doing a WOD, Huong’s other passions include rock climbing, mountaineering, yoga, skiing, mountain biking, backpacking, and any other sports that takes her outside. Huong and her husband enjoy adventure travel and an active lifestyle together. She started rock climbing because she had a fear of heights and that soon led to mountaineering. Huong has been to Everest base camp and Kala Patthar in Nepal and summited Mount Aconcagua in December 2011 at 22, 841 feet for her honeymoon. She was also the first Vietnamese person to accomplish this feat. When she’s not active, she enjoys healthy cooking and baking.

ADAPT offers various treatment options including the popular treatments of cupping and dry needling!

Coach of the Month: Jason Matthews
When friends hear Jason Matthews’ name, the first thought that comes to mind is, “That guy has HANDS!”

Ever since he was young, Jason has been fascinated with the fluidity of human movement. He used to mimic break dancers because they were so “free flowing.” This eventually led to gaining his first boxing coach, Roger Simpson.

From 2013 till now, Jason has studied under such notables as Yah Yah McClain (Laila Ali’s trainer), Quantavious Cash ( Money Team, Floyd Mayweather), Paul Delgado, Damont Giddins, Christian Steele, and Tony Pina.

In 2016, some local fighters took note of Jason’s skills and introduced him to MMA/Kickboxing. Jason has worked with ATT/UFC coach& fighter Datroy Lyons Lee, Desean Dyer of team Octopus, and Daniel Spain of UFC. Jason’s amateur record for MMA is 1-0.

Get to know Jason by asking him about what his boxing record is!

#teamOCTO Spotlight: Robert Kushner

Hey #teamOCTO! Meet Robert “Bubba” Kushner!

What brought you to Team Octopus?
I’ve always been involved in contact sports and I’ve always been intrigued by MMA. It’s a great release of the stresses life brings, and the workout is phenomenal. Plus, it’s not bad to learn how to throw a couple deadly punches.

How was your first class?
My first class was great. I took boxing with Coach Eric Williams. Great energy and boxing knowledge. No matter your skill, level he stays interested in your progressions and fundamentals. My favorite has been the Jiu-Jitsu! I can’t wait to get better technically and look forward to submitting my man Koon!

What changes have you made outside of the gym to complement a healthy lifestyle?
As much as I love Team Octo, I have to get my weights in. My fiancé and I hit the gym 4-5 days a week in addition to walking are 140-lb. Rottweiler, Lebron.

You’ve been busy these days! Tell us about BuffBoxx.
I left my position as GM of The IVY Buckhead to put everything into my new company. BuffBoxx is a premium fitness subscription box that delivers a range of products from Reebok apparel to accessories to snacks and meals! We launched on the 1st, and we are extremely excited to see where this goes.

What advice would you give to someone who is just beginning at Team Octopus?
Ask questions. Both the staff and members are very respectful of each other and quick to lend advice. There is a very comfortable environment here… unless you’re caught in an arm-bar!

Robert has created an exclusive deal for Team Octopus members! Use promo code: TEAMOCTO to receive 10% off BuffBoxx order!
