We love the Athertons! Jim came into CFVB during our first week of business. He had been following the main site WODs and did what he could at his gym. He was pretty knowledgable about CrossFit movements and, being a rugby player, was already tough. Jim is consistent week after week and we never tire of his bizarre comments and off-color jokes.
About six months after he joined, Jim convinced his wife, Margaret, to give CrossFit a shot. She's been hooked ever since and is a member of the 7 AM crew. From what I hear, she's fitting into her "skinny jeans" and is feeling great.
Lastly, a few months ago Jim and Margaret's son, Jack, decided to become a CrossFitter. Jack is a lacrosse player and wanted to get an edge on the other athletes. At only 14, Jack finishes every WOD, is now eating Paleo and has dropped 10+ pounds!
Go Team Atherton!
