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 December Athlete of the Month is Heidi Childers Jones! Heidi came to us from the Windy City back in May of 2016 and has established a solid place for herself with our 7:30 am coffee crew. Her cool energy and amazing work ethic is such a bright spot in the mornings and we have absolutely loved getting to know her and all the cools things she’s dabbled in! Heidi exemplifies so many of the qualities we look for in an AOM and is a great example for her two gorgeous girls at home. We have loved watching her progress and getting to know her friendly spirit along the way. Heidi, the CFA Team is proud to honor you as our December Athlete of the Month and as an awesome part of this community. Thanks for your all your hard work and we look forward to seeing all you accomplish in the years to come! Congratulations!
State your Name and/or Nickname please:
Heidi Roxanne Childers Jones. What a mouthful! They used to call me “Rox” at my old box, but it just feels funny to be back at home in Texas going by anything other than “Heidi.” 😉
“Never stop learning,” and “Do you.” Out of all the poetic motivational quotes I’ve loved over the years, I always come back to these basic, no-frills pieces of advice. The former keeps you growing and challenging yourself. The latter keeps you out of everyone else’s business and keeps you firmly in the driver’s seat of your own life.
Leave the fine folks of CrossFit Austin with some parting words…
