The L10XF “Athlete of the week” is Pam!!! Pam has done an amazing job since joining us a short while ago. Everyone in our 6pm class has witnessed her strength and confidence grow each and every week. Her commitment to true fitness was clearly on display earlier in the summer when she braved not only the heat but also the smoke to attend the evening class. Pam, glad you have joined our crazy little fitness community.
Chalk up another one for the, “I NEVER thought I would do that in my life” moments that are happening more and more frequently around our little gym. The most recent example is Debbie who scurried up our 18 foot rope. She even got a full hand on the steal crossbeam to make it legit. Way to go, Debbie!!!
Mario is only two sessions into his Level 10 CrossFit experience and is already moving like a champ. Today we tackled the deadlift. Mario did so well that I was once again reminded of the half dozen or so conversations that I have had in the past with well-meaning High School football coaches, or self described “Sports Performance Trainers”, who because of myth, misinformation, or laziness have decided to leave out this valuable movement. In the end the kids are the ones that miss out on optimal performance, fitness, and possibly the chance to take their talent to the next level.
