January 2019 Athlete of the Month

 In Athlete of the Month

Congratulations to Ben Villafuerte on being selected as January’s athlete of the month. Ben has been a member of the Mission family coming up on almost 3 years. Some of you may not have had the opportunity to WOD with Ben due to the fact that he is a staple at noon class 99% of the time. He come in quietly and kills every WOD we put in front of him. Always striving for perfection during his lifts as well as pushing that extra weight during the workouts. For those reason and many more is why Ben has been selected as January’s athlete of the month.

Story– My CrossFit journey started a few years ago when I was looking for something to push me mentally and physically. Something I had lost from my college days of being a student athlete. A friend recommended I try out CrossFit so I did and the rest is history. It was exactly what I was looking for. The challenge of learning new lifts and movements from great coaches who constantly push and encourage you to get better. The camaraderie and friendly competition between one another to help push you through workouts. Mission has introduction me to some really great people. I would like to thank all my coaches and fellow MCF members for your support and encouragement each and everyday.

Ben V.
