Upper Cape CrossFit's Athlete of the Month!
We are pleased to announce that the Upper Cape CrossFit Athlete of the Month for July 2013 is:
Stephanie, actually came to us to sign up her husband (most of you know him as A-Aron).
She was supportive and would come and watch Rich do his workout. Stephanie had been doing CrossFit off-Cape. After a while, she decided to join Aaron in a class here at Upper Cape CrossFit. Since that day she has been an active member of our community. She is quick to introduce herself to everyone that walks through our doors. She is constantly trying to improve herself and quite supportive of others. She tries her best on every WOD and after classes you can find her working on her mobility, strict pullups, handstand pushups or some other skill. She also brings us treats! (she make as killer homemade cherry "lara" bar - this is not why she won, but it certainly helps! (kidding)
She also crushed it in July! She got her first bandless pullups, she knocked :35 off of her July 15th Thruster/Sprinting WOD.
Congrats again Stephanie! We are proud to have you as a member of our community...
