Athlete Spotlight by Christine Clark
When Steve walked into CrossFit Oakdale 3 months ago, erectile he was welcomed
by a motley crew of 9AM enthusiasts. Since then he has grown by leaps and
bounds. Steve has shown great dedication, not missing a single day of
training. He is receptive to coaching and not afraid to ask clarifying
questions…like a whole lot of questions. 🙂
Steve has five children and five grandchildren that he adores. He is a retired
Special Education teacher turned CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate). When he is not
volunteering time with foster youth, he enjoys playing the violin at Living
Hope Christian Fellowship.
On a side note Steve may be one of my favorite Masters Athletes, but I’m
biased!! (This is Christine, and Steve is my dad) We are so incredibly proud
of your effort and can-do attitude! Cheers to many more years of health
and wellness! Here’s a bit more about Steve….
