Athlete of the month goals



  • To be more open to new experiences, to be more inviting to new gym athletes   



  • To wake up every morning enjoying my job.  

  • To fix infrastructure correctly and efficiently one road at a time (and add more orange cones to your commute, not really)

  • To pass my Profession Engineering (PE) test next April to remove the word “Assistant” in my job title



  • I was going to say hit 225# for my Power Clean PR but 18.2 took care of that; so 

  • Run at least one 5k a month!

  • Abs of steel…or at least abs.  They are CORE to everything you do


Why do you choose MC CrossFit?

  • If you have been to this box and seen the coaching and the community then I don't have to answer this question
