Népra Team - Matti Knaapi


CrossFit Athlete from Kuopio

Since 2012, Matti has been a CrossFit coach at CrossFit Kuopio. In the same year, Matti participated in the Karjalan Kovin CrossFit competition for the first time. Matti has studied sports at the University of Applied Sciences.

Matti is a well-known and experienced CrossFit athlete in Finland, and at the moment recovering from a back injury the second time. He has lived the atmosphere on the competition floors, but also the difficulties how to get back after injury. Through his experiences, he can help others achieve their goals, to avoid pitfalls, and show how to get back after a drawback. We admire Matti for this mindset of simply dusting yourself off and trying again; going forward needn’t be so complicated.
