Kimberly Corbitt Henderson
June 20, 1964 – July 23, 2015

Words cannot aptly describe the collective bereavement of the untimely and tragic death of Kimberly (Kim) Henderson, 51, of Golden, Colorado on July 23, 2015. Remembering Kim and grieving her loss are her husband Paul and son Luke, her father, Jim Corbitt, her mother, Patricia (Patty) Corbitt, her brother Bo Corbitt, her stepmother Carol Corbitt, her stepbrothers, Patrick and Michael, and her sister-in-laws, Elizabeth, Maureen and Hannah, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and myriad of friends.

While it has been said, life is ironic… it takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence, such is not true for those who came to know Kim Henderson. Her presence was valued and celebrated daily by those who knew and loved her. A woman of uncompromising principles and strength, Kim cherished her family and all that life had to offer.

Spending her early years in Florida, Kim loved the beach and all the joys of the Florida water activities. However, her love of the Colorado Mountains and the abundance of outdoor recreation is unrivaled. An incredibly athletically talented woman, Kim was an avid and beautiful skier, and a CrossFit enthusiast. Kim above all, had a passion and love for, and was a longtime student of aikido and koryu jujutsu. She was formally a licensed instructor of Takamura ha Shindo Yoshin ryu, functioned as the organization’s kanjicho (general secretary) and traveled internationally representing the school. She was currently undergoing advanced level instruction at the headquarters dojo in Evergreen, Colorado. Her love of travel and foreign cultures brought her to Japan where she taught English in her younger years. Her friends and those she touched with the memory of her span the globe. Her crowning achievement, however, was as a mother to her beautiful son Luke and as a wife to her loving husband, Paul.

Kim loved life, her family, friends and, well, a cold beer. Her energy, enthusiasm and joy are not only what she will be remembered by, but should serve as a coaching session for all of those who knew her. We celebrate Kim and all that she stood for. Gone too soon from our lives, but the memories she gave us are too beautiful to forget.

All of the movements in this workout as well as the structure of the workout itself is/are something that Kim would have loved.  She was a HUGE fan of heavy barbells, being an incredibly strong woman.  Worked tirelessly on perfecting her push ups and got her very first ever chest to bar pull ups with a beaming smile during the CrossFit Open this year (I know you all know that look and smile when someone accomplishes the unthinkable during the open!)
