Why do you choose MC CrossFit? The athletes and the coaches. At MC CrossFit the environment is one that is inviting and friendly. The athletes help to hold you accountable, even if it is unsolicited. You get pushed to work harder, go a bit heavier, finish one more rep. Each of the coaches are giving their knowledge and tips to help you improve and are there motivating you through the workouts. Thanks to the athletes and coaches for embracing me as part of the MC CrossFit community and pushing me everyday to be better!
