Wait? What happened to February? 28 days went by in the blink of an eye! But any who, it's March and that means a new H Dub Athlete of the Month! This month's is Mr. Reed Portis AKA Danny Woodhead.
What makes up an Athlete of the Month? Not RX’ing every workout or lifting the most weight. This athlete exhibits consistency and a hard work mentality. Every time they come to the gym they have a good attitude and give their all. This person is also welcoming of others, helping make CFHD the best community there is. Each month we choose a different athlete and post some fun facts about them to help y’all get to know them better.
Reed has made it at least 4 days a week since he started with H Dub in August (did we mention he's an Original Gangster?). He is the definition of hard work and consistency. Coming from a "globo gym" background he has struggled with mobility. He always comes in early/stays late to fit in mobility work because he knows the importance of it. Not only does he put in the hard work, but he is also a great ambassador for CrossFit H Dub and we are thankful to have him!
Name: Reed Portis
Hometown: Memphis, TN
