About the wod
This “Mr. Nick” memorial WOD is dedicated to Nicholas Joseph Hostler, age 35, born May 14th, 1983 in St. Louis, MO. Nick passed away “doing what he loved, always pushing himself to be better,” on May 30th, 2018.
He had recently completed his master’s degree in Special Education, also at MSU. He was a para-professional at Delaware Elementary and a special education teacher at McBride Elementary. His beloved students and co-workers referred to him as “Mr. Nick”.
Nick had a long history with the Midwestern gymnastics community as a competitor and coach. Gymnastics, combined with his passion for CrossFit training, and love of working with children, made the perfect fit for Nick to become a special needs teacher.
Nick’s world revolved around his family and his desire to help others. He is survived by his parents, Gil and Mary Kay Hostler, brothers Nathan (Katie Brookshier), and Neil (Kara Hubler), nephews and nieces (Cayden, Preston, Sophia, Mason, and Olivia), and numerous loving cousins, aunts, and uncles.
His home CrossFit gym, CrossFit RTB (now KCT Fitness @kct_fitness) (Springfield, MO, USA), created this WOD in Nick’s memory along with a memorial fund in his name, dedicated to supporting children with special needs through physical education.
