Congrats to John Young, our Firebreather of the Month for September.
When John first walked through our doors, he didn't work out regularly and stated one goal for giving CrossFit a shot: to be able to keep up with his two young sons. Four months later, John has shattered that goal completely and is continually surpassing any expectations he sets for himself.
John is now down to his high school weight, when he was a member of the cross country running team. He has leaned out and gained muscle and now routinely Rxs the WODs. His pull-ups are solid and he displays great form on the lifts. For a few months, John subbed rowing for running due to an old injury. We are happy to say that he is running again…and fast! And he's got one of the strongest rope climbs at CFVB.
One of the best things about John is his support of his fellow athletes, which is demonstrated when he cheers others on to a strong finish.
He's funny, he's positive, he works hard, he performs…John is a firebreather!
