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 November Athlete of the Month is Matt Cleaver! Matt joined the CFA Family just before the shut down, but that did NOT stop him from finding a home with us right away! He was super engaging and consistent with our zoom classes at the time and fell right into place with the whole community when we came back together. He has been a welcoming face ever since! Matt came to us with a solid background, but hasn’t slowed down on his progress one bit! He’s always working to be better and to push toward that next goal. Matt also has a way of helping to bring out that little bit of extra inside his fellow classmates too. We’ve loved being part of the journey with him and celebrating the wins along the way! Matt, we are honored to have you as our November 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!
The road of life is always under construction. Remain humble.
Many of you have heard me say this, but the diversity of the gym is amazing, and I cherish that everyone is simply here to better one another. There are many folks with a variety of athletic, and cultural backgrounds. We all need that exposure.
Well…I can properly move furniture without hurting myself. Haha! Seriously…I get into a deadlift position to ensure I save my back!
This happened at my old gym, but the day I learned how to rhythmically do toes to bar, and another day I did my first muscle up.
