Time to highlight one of our spectacular athletes! 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.
This month's AOTM was also dubbed "Rookie of the Year" at our recent 3 year anniversary party. He hasn't been doing CrossFit too long, but he dived right it and is proving that hard work and dedication is everything. He has already competed in two competitions! We love that his competitive nature doesn't override the good vibes he brings to the gym, but when the workout starts, he knows it's time to put in WORK!
