Athlete of the Month
Allen was chosen as member of the month for September for several reasons. Most of all his positive attitude and easy-going personality makes people around him feel comfortable and welcome. He always has positive things to say about people and training. No matter how much he struggles with his weaknesses (we all have the, CrossFit reveals them) he continues to work on them striving for those small victories like a first double-under or simply not pulling early on a Clean.
He doesn’t always Rx the WODs but does when it’s right for the improvement of his fitness. The 9am class is small some days and sometimes Allen will do the fitness version of the class instead of performance to help his classmates feel more camaraderie by having someone to train with.
He’s just the kind of guy you want to be around. He is truly the brick in the foundation of our community and we are glad he is here.
