November Athlete of the Month

 In Athlete of the Month

Congratulations to Galen ValadezĀ  on being selected as November Athlete of the Month. Galen has been a valuable part of the Mission community for many years now. You cant miss him at the 6:30pm class because he always makes his presence known. You can see him hitting big numbers on his lifts with his “old man strength” to giving the Coaching staff a hard time. Galen has not only been a tremendous asset to the Mission Community inside the box but outside the box as well. For those reasons and many more is why being selected as November Athlete of the Month.

Story: My journey in CrossFit started in 2011. My daughter and son in law had joined a CrossFit gym and they wanted me to come try it out. I did and I was hooked. I especially enjoyed the friendly competition with my fellow crossfitters.
What really impressed me was the sense of family among everyone. I have made some life long friends through this journey. I have not been at the box as much as I would like this past year. When I am there I try to cause as much trouble as i can. I am coming for your Joey, watch your back. There is a reason we call the 6:30pm class the Best thirty. We are not just a class, we are family, except Ignacio.
