12.09.12 Congrats Monica L!

AWESOME WEEKEND! Thanks to everyone who joined us for the CrossFitmas Party!

Congrats Monica L!

A note from Monica:
“This past November I hit a HUGE fitness goal for myself by running the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon. I supplemented my running training schedule with CrossFit workouts. I can say without a doubt that adding in weight lifting and additional muscle endurance exercises from CrossFit helped me achieve my goal. I could have never ran those 13.1 miles as well as I did without the strength I had built from CrossFit. I absolutely love CrossFit and how strong I have become since I have joined, and I can’t wait to make some more goals and crush them with CFM! Thanks Lis!”
