November is here, the leaves are falling and so are the pounds and PR's! As you are well aware, your diligence pays off with increases in strength and skill. YOU continuously test your mettle and grind through discomfort to finish your workouts. This inspiring environment is what makes choosing JUST two Athletes of the Month so difficult!
Jessica McClintock-Berardinelli has been a staple and plank member of the 0500 class for quite some time. Jessica made the choice to try something outside of her comfort zone and…knocked it out of the park! Jess isn't what you'd call a "morning person". All the more impressive to see this AOTM dedicate and commit to the task at hand! We've continuously seen her strike up conversations with new athletes, cheer them on and do her best to make them feel welcome. Jessica continues to impress us with her laser-like focus, push to improve and continued PR's!!! Congratulations on representing our community as a November Athlete of the Month!!!!
Chip McClintock (no relation to Jess) tried out his first CrossFit session in May of this year. Once he had a taste of the "Kool Aid"…he was in! It didn't take long for the coaches to see that Chip attacks every WOD with all he has! Chip's raw strength and athletic background shine through each and every session. Chip has shown great character in working through some tweaks and old injury patterns that some of us "Silverbacks" acquire over time. He has never let any of the speed bumps become road blocks. Chip has an infectious smile and a will of iron. He would literally give you the shirt off of his back! Congrats on being November Athlete of the Month!!!!
