By: 0

We couldn’t be more proud to announce that Daron is our June athlete of the month! Just like he says he will do, Daron shows up to CrossFit 5 times a week no matter what and while he may hate some of the workouts, he always gives his all and encourages others in the process. If there was a most improved athlete, Daron would definitely receive that award too.

Coach Jared says, “It’s really cool to see how Daron has improved since he started with us. I mean this dude went from rarely ever working out to deadlifting 225 in the Open in just a matter of months. Every time Daron walks through the door, I look forward to coaching the class. I can always tell he is pushing himself and has a positive attitude about everything when he’s done.”

We love having you in our 2024 family Daron and we can’t wait to see all the wonderful PRs in store for you in the future! Keep it up!
