Athlete of the Month

FEBRUARY

For the month of February we chose an athlete that has been working hard since day one. She makes no excuses by coming to the 5:30am class every week. She just competed in her first ever competition, where her and her partner placed first in their division! She’s very eager to learn and to get better. Before 16.2 she practiced double unders for three days straight so she would have them down by go time.  She’s a great example of the kind of drive everyone should have to become a better version of themselves. For the month of February we chose…Lorie Longshore! Congratulations!

16.2


JANUARY

For the first month of 2016 we chose an athlete who initially doubted her ability to participate in CrossFit. She told herself she would try it for a month to see if she could do it, three months later she is still going strong. She dedicates so much time to getting better. She does not quit and she is willing to try anything once. She is encouraging and inspirational. For the month of January we chose…Gail Clymer, who has also signed up for her first CrossFit Games Open! Congratulations!

16.2-19


DECEMBER

For the final month of 2015 we chose an athlete that always walks through the door ready to give 110%. She comes in ready to learn and execute. She constantly stays past class to practice a new skill or work her technique. She encourages other athletes to push harder or compliments them after watching them kick butt in a difficult WOD. She’s a great example of why the CrossFit community is so awesome because we want to see each other succeed.  When she can’t work out she shows up just to watch the WOD. She has twin girls and still makes time to work out and reach her goals. She is a great pick for the last month of 2015. Congrats Hailey Farmer on being December’s athlete of the month!

OCTOBER

For the month of October, we chose an athlete that is all about team work, always works hard and is always willing to lend a helping hand. This person never misses a work out, even if they have to come in late at night or early in the morning. Honestly, we can do a lot of bragging on this person, but we’ll just let this message we received from a fellow athlete do the talking…:

“Just my thoughts for athlete of the month…. Bill consistently displays a positive attitude in everything he does. He always puts forth 110% in every workout, and encourages those around him to do the very same; a source of inspiration for everyone. Bill embodies the true definition of a CrossFit athlete; he always strives to achieve his very best and because of that, earned second place in this years War of the WODs, his first CrossFit competition ever! A well deserved, and hard-earned, accomplishment; did not quit even through two first place tie brea
kers! And because of that, Bill was selected as the October athlete of the month.”

Bill Green, congrats on being October’s athlete of the month!
