SEATTLE — 65 year-old Katherine Stojkovic was nearing retirement from a 30 yr career with Premera when she saw people from the CrossFit Industrious working out near their Montlake Terrace campus and they looked like they were having a lot of fun. She decided to give it a try and found a supportive community that helped ground her as she transitioned into retirement.

Since then she's competed in the 60+ age division for 4 consecutive years at the CrossFit Games international competition.
