The people in this box truly inspire me each and every day with what they can achieve. It's a very big part of why I coach CrossFit when I know I can make a difference in peoples lives by making them fitter, stronger and healthier people. And I don't just mean physically stronger, but also mentally stronger so they may take on anything outside of the box. That way when life throws a curve ball at you, whether physical or mental or both, you are much better equipped to handle it.
One such person in this box has not only had to overcome the challenge of being totally non-athletic, but also the challenge of being 40 odd kilo's over weight. She has accomplished this and now among other things has become a Spartan Warrior and a CrossFit Games Open competitor.
She best describes her experience with CrossFit as a "love-hate relationship" which I think we can all relate to at times.
So it is with great pleasure that I am proud to announce our Athlete of the Month is Georgina Smith.
To watch George not only take part in the CrossFit Open, but to also set a Personal Best on each and every week with the Games WOD's was truly inspiring.
Whether it was a weight lifting movement that was heavier than she had ever tackled or and gymnastic movement she had never accomplished before, she dug her heels in and in true CrossFit Spirit didn't quit. Her efforts were absolutely amazing and something that I will remember for years to come.
Georgina has achieved so much in her time with us and I think we can all learn and take something from watching her unyielding perseverance and dedication to getting the job done.
