April 2021 Athlete of the Month- Kat
What can we say about Kat other than inspiring? Kat joined CrossFit 2024 in June of 2020 while she was roughly 5 months pregnant. Right from the start, Kat was motivated, worked hard, crushed every workout, and maintained it all up until her daughter was due.
While discussing who the athlete of the month could be, the coaches immediately agreed that Kat was the right choice. Just 2 months after beautiful Kamila was born, Kat reached out about getting back into the gym. We were stoked. Just a few months later we were seriously impressed and inspired. Kat and Kamila show up daily ready to get after it and put all excuses to the side. It doesn’t matter if she’s busy, tired, or got all the mom things to do, Kat shows up to the gym and puts in the work toward her goals. Aside from showing that pregnancy or motherhood don’t have to keep you from your goals, Kat always has an amazing attitude, is coachable, and has a ton of fun with her life.
Keep working hard Kat! We love having you in the gym each and every day!
