August Athlete of the Month || Camren Cervera!

Each month we spotlight a different CFA athlete who stands out and shows just how awesome they are. What is it that makes up an Athlete of the Month? It may not be the person that finishes the fastest, Rx’s every WOD, or gets a PR every time they walk in the gym. Although we love and celebrate when those things happen, the Athlete of the Month is made up of much more than physical ability. This person shows up, gives their best every time, and then gives a little more. They are hungry to learn and always ready to do the work. They support their fellow classmates and encourage them to reach their goals. This athlete embodies what we believe the CrossFit Austin Community should be about.

Our August Athlete of the Month is a very special one! Not only is this our first athlete coming from the Austin Weightlifting side, but it’s also our first youth AOM! We are proud to present Camren Cervera as our August AOM! Camren is the son of Billie and Edgar from the early crew and he and his brother Mason started working with Coach Dylan 2 years ago as the first athletes of the youth Strength & Conditioning program. Since starting with Coach Dylan, Camren has made huge leaps in his progress and even made it to the Youth Nationals Olympic Lifting meet in Anaheim, CA this year! Camren always comes in with a great attitude and is ready to work hard. Camren, the CFA Team is proud to honor you as our August Athlete of the Month and as an awesome part of this team. Thanks for your all your hard work and we look forward to seeing all you accomplish in the years to come! Congratulations!
