Athlete of the Month – Alexis


Athlete of the Month – Alexis

Athlete of the Month by Coach Tricia
D-E –T- E- R –M- I –N- E -D is most certainly an accurate word to describe Alexis B. HEY! Did you know that just the other day, ailment November 6, try Alexis got her first “legit bar muscle up”!! OH YEAH!!! She was persistent and most definitively DETERMINED. She had to be! 

Her first muscle up is not too far off in the near future. Oh and watching her bust out a boat load of butterfly pull-ups at the recent Barbell for Boobs at CrossFit Excel was, healing in my opinion, the highlight of the evening. Way to go Alexis! Next time you see her give her a knuckle or high five. Here’s a bit more about Alexis….
