Congratulations to our August Athlete of the Month, Jose!

From Jose: “Don’t let your failures define you. Without failure there would be no progress!  It let’s you know how far you’ve come.”

This is what one of Jose’s fellow athletes had to say about him: “Thanks Jose Morales but you are my vote for athlete and dad of the month. Gets his son situated, fixes his little girl’s hair, and then squats 300 something lbs. Get on board with that.

A few words from Jamie:

“Started CrossFit in 2013-my primary goal was to lose some weight.  I was doing

Jamie!

CrossFit 3 days a week and was still eating too much of the wrong foods so didn’t lose any weight , got discouraged and quit.

Fast forward to 2015-wanted (and needed) to get back into exercise.  Considered going to one of the other gyms in town-been there, done that.  I saw no benefit exercising on all those machines with no instruction, coaching etc.

So decided to come back to CrossFit- now 5 days a week and eating better and have lost 10lbs.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE CrossFit.  I believe you get what you pay for-with CrossFit we get personal attention-coaches who coach, train, instruct, and challenge us to do our best.  Best of all is the ongoing encouragement we get from the coaches and fellow Crossfitters.”

May Athlete of the Month

Congratulations to our May Athlete of the Month, Lindsey Beltran!!

LindseyAOM“In February of 2014, I walked into Crossfit Maricopa nervous, excited, scared, and eager to try something I knew would be one of the most physically challenging goals I have ever set for myself. I soon found out that it was not only a physical challenge to complete the sixty minute class, but find the mentality to tell myself every day to keep going, and not give up. The work outs never got easier, I just got stronger and faster. Every day I strive to only be better than the day before. This mentality that I have learned from the coaches and fellow athletes will never change. The support, encouragement, and motivation that pours out of Crossfit Maricopa can never be replicated and I will never forget where I was given my new outlook on life, on myself, my health, and what I can achieve physically and mentally. That first day I entered Crossfit Maricopa, reading the community board, I saw the name of the Athlete of the Month and thought to myself, “I am going to be that, one day”. And I finally did it!”
