Tom Kim

CrossFit Coach


Tom grew up playing competitive soccer and Taekwondo and has a passion for empowering people to live healthier, happier lives.  While working in a demanding corporate environment with a toxic culture, he realized how easy it is to compromise our health and he struggled with health conditions that prevented him from playing competitive sports — an experience where he discovered his vision to empower others to achieve the best version of themselves.  In 2020, he moved back from Boston to Walnut Creek, his hometown, and began his journey with CrossFit Sweat Shop.  At Sweat Shop, he regained his joy and passion for competitive sports.  He loves Sweat Shop’s culture of caring for one another and constructively pushing each other outside of comfort zones.  When he’s not at the Sweat Shop, Tom is a Product Lead at Amazon, where he leads a team of software engineers, data scientists, business analysts and designers to build software products.
