Member Spotlight – Nicole McClain

One year ago, following the lead of her sister, Nicole joined CFVB. At first we thought she was quiet and shy, but what we quickly found out is that she’s a total badass, especially on the soccer field. So much so that she earned an athletic scholarship. Earlier this year, she scored two goals for Vero Beach High School in order to take the the District Championship Game (you can read about it HERE.

Nicole is also uber-intelligent and was recently recognized at VBHS for her unweighted 4.0 grade point average.

From the moment she walked through our doors, she has displayed a fabulous attitude. She takes direction and coaching well, putting our suggestions to work immediately. We will miss seeing Nicole at the gym when she heads off to college, but we can’t wait to hear about all the amazing things she will achieve as she moves on.

Here’s more about Nicole…

Occupation: Senior at Vero Beach High School

Family: My dad Wayne, my mom Nancy, my sister Kat, and my dog Duke

Favorite CrossFit movement or workout: Front squats and rope climbs

Favorite cheat meal: Chances are if you put any kind of dessert in front of me I will end up eating it, but one of my favorites is Cold Stone cake batter ice cream mixed with cookie dough and brownies.

Hobbies: I have been playing soccer since I was 4 years old, so that takes up a lot of my time. I also enjoy anything that has to do with the water (boating, fishing, snorkeling, tubing) and of course CrossFit.

Little known fact: In the Fall, I will be attending Florida Institute of Technology where I will be studying Ocean Engineering and playing on the women’s soccer team.
