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 May Athlete of the Month is Vince Bustillos! Vince joined the CFA family about 8 months ago and has been a pleasure to work with since day one! Vince’s mindset and approach to training is what we as coaches LOVE to see. He has a sense of purpose and intent in each session and that has led him to an awesome improvements! Vince is such a kind, hard working guy and we’ve really enjoyed getting to know him in his time here. We’ve loved being part of the journey with him and celebrating the wins along the way! Vince, we are honored to have you as our May 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!

I’ve played sports as long as I can remember with little league football, baseball, and basketball. I started lifting weights in high school and played Texas football (All district linebacker). I went from football to cheerleading in college lifting cheerleaders in partner stunts and tumbling around the field, court, or competition floor. Before covid I played recreational sports like Softball and Flag Football. I went to Gay Bowl for Austin Gay and Lesbian Flag Football League in 2018 and 2019. I’m looking forward to the season starting again. awwww
The coaches, they are knowledgeable, and down to earth. I love knowing their techniques and I try and retain and apply it all on the floor.
Double unders consecutively and Muscle ups.
Take your time, do it right, and go at your own pace.
I know that when I am a better version of myself physically it will translate to my home and work life.

Every moment I realize I am on cruise control and I have control of my pace and breathing. There’s something that clicks and I know when I can pick up the pace or recover.
Realizing it’s not always a competition and my journey is unique to me.
