This month we chose Abbie Mayo as our Athlete of the Month. Abbie has shown incredible dedication at the gym over the last few months. She often stays after class to work on her weaknesses and hone her strengths and has made huge gains since she first stepped in the door. Be sure to congratulate her at either the 8:30AM or 9:30AM women’s class where she is a regular during the week. Great job Abbie!!! Keep up the good work!

Story: I started CrossFit in January as a way to change up my workout routine, and to gain some strength. I have always run and lifted some type of weight my entire life, so I thought I was in good shape when I started Crossfit, but boy was I mistaken! There were so many things that I could not do when I first started, but with time and practice I have conquered many of my goals. There are so many things that I love about Crossfit! I love the fact that in Crossfit you can be on any level and still get in a great workout and feel accomplished at the end. I love the laid back atmosphere and the sense of community here at Mission Crossfit. I have met so many great people since I began, and I look forward to seeing them each day, and watching them accomplish great things! I love the coaches here at Mission, and I think they do a great job of teaching and encouraging you. They make you want to get better, and are willing to help you get there. I know from experience that good coaching and training can make or break your workout experience. 🙂 And finally, I love how varied the workouts are-it is never boring!! I am so glad that I found Crossfit and tried it. I have gained many things this past year, and I look forward to seeing what I can accomplish in the next year! Thanks for choosing me as Athlete of the Month! I feel very honored!
