 In Athlete of the Month
Congratulations to Xandria Gutierrez who has been selected as June 2019 Athlete of the Month. Xandria has been a staple of the early afternoon classes for over 3 years. She pushes herself every single time she steps foot in the box with more weight on the bar than she thinks she is capable of doing . She thrives if you throw anything involving cardio. Careful if you come WOD with her during a running day, you may be not be able to see her. For those reasons and may more is why Xandria has been selected as June Athlete of the Month.

Story– During college, I was a cardio junkie and thrived on anything that involved cardio. When I graduated I tried all types of workouts and fitness classes to keep fit and try to find something I liked enough to stick with. You name it, I probably tried it. While my cardio was decent, I knew I wanted to be stronger than I was so I started looking up gyms around town that could help me with that. I had heard of CrossFit and how good of a workout it was, so I decided to try it out as a trial and all I remember is being in pain for days. After the trial, I tried out a few different boxes before I found the perfect fit at Mission. The people, the coaches and the programming were exactly what I was looking for in a CrossFit gym and I was thrilled to finally find a gym to call home. The community here is like a second a family and everyone always pushes you to go faster, lift heavier, and be stronger. I’m so grateful and thankful to the coaches and other members for their encouragement and support!
