May Athlete of the Month || Laura Englund!!
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 Laura Englund! Laura joined the CFA Family in just shy of 2 years ago, but came in with some years in the CF world. Laura quickly found her place among the midday crew, sweatin with the nooners, but these days you’ll see her in a few different class times. Laura is your go to gal for a good friend and a great time! She’s always down for a cold brew (or a popsicle) post class! She may sound like she doesn’t actually want to be in class sometimes (cue complaining about the warm up with T 😉 ), but she really is the picture of consistency. The only time we DON’T see Laura is if she’s off on an adventure! We’ve loved being part of the journey with her and celebrating the wins along the way! Laura, 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!
Everything happens for a reason
Not much actually! Played a lil bball when I was younger
I will almost always find time for the gym because that time is very important to me. I tend to focus mostly on just moving my body these days
McDonalds all day
I use it to get to my 3rd floor apartment or to give my friends piggy back rides. Or to flex and open pickle jars for people
Changing habits outside of the gym to see better results inside of the gym (still learning of course)
During the open when I did 6 ring muscle ups! I was fired up
10 minutes max double unders, or 1,000 double unders for time What keeps you going on the days you don’t feel like it? -Knowing that even if I don’t want to go to the gym, the feeling of finishing a workout always gets me there
I like going to see live music, I’m really big into the craft beer industry, I travel A TON.
