Phil Kniep

Phil found CrossFit while training as a firefighter back in 2009. Several firefighter friends decided to start working out in parks around Lincoln and from there CrossFit Lincoln was born. Phil played football at the University of Nebraska and eventually went on to compete in the CrossFit Games as an individual in 2011 and 2012 and more recently as a Master’s Division athlete in 2018.
