Story:

Thank you for the recognition!! Was really shocked until I realized I must have won you all over with my sweet dance moves.  I joined Mission last April, with SO much anxiety about working out in a competitive group environment that I told Coach Meagan before my first class I’d probably throw up from nerves. So happy I forced myself to join!! I’ve found a type of fitness that I truly enjoy, that pushes me past what I thought my limits were. CrossFit humbles AND empowers me daily. On top of that, the community of friends and athletes I’ve found at Mission is, well, everything. I draw so much inspiration from the strength, and tenacity of everyone there, and can never get enough of the positive, hard-working, booty-shaking environment at Mission. THANK YOU to Drew, Meagan, and all of the coaches for making it happen on a daily, and guiding us to become better versions of ourselves! Love starting my day off with all of you!!!
