January 2017 Athlete of the Month – Wes Weissgarber

 In Athlete of the Month

Congratulations to Wes Weissgarber for being selected as the January 2017 Athlete if the Month! We couldn’t think of a better way to kick of the new year then selecting an athlete like Wes.  Since he joined Mission, he has been a regular at the noon class, rarely not seen during the week.  He has recently kicked his skill work into high gear by staying after class every time he attends to practice his pull-ups, muscle ups and any other skill he’s working to develop.  He never packs his gear up before the last person finished the WOD and continuously cheers others on around him. For those reasons and many more, he is definitely deserving of the title for Athlete of the Month.

Story:  I’ve always been an active person.  Throughout my life I’ve competed in many sports, team and individual; all have required different levels of training.  Of all the athletics I’ve done, none have shown me the gains and physical improvement that CrossFit has.  The drive for competition and self improvement creates an addictive environment that I look forward to everyday.  The workouts are always intense, the coaches are knowledgeable, and the friends keep it chipper!  As long as I’m able, I will push myself at MCF and enjoy the time with my friends here.  Cheers!
