His positivity radiates to everyone at the gym and it’s amazing to see!” Coach Joe also had this to say about Bill, “I’m really impressed with how Bill has been fearless and consistent with CrossFit. Bill had some very thoughtful goals when came into the gym. He works towards these goals each class with a positive attitude, strong resolve, and open mind. Perhaps most importantly, Bill is a great role model for how to have fun every class. I love having Bill in class and am glad he’s part of the 2024 community. “
