November Athlete of the Month – Brent Lynch

At CFS, we’re blown away every day by the extraordinary work that our members are putting in.

For the month of November, we’d like to […]

December Athlete of the Month – Emily Zale

Don’t let her sweet smile fool you – this girl squats heavy!  Emily Zale was born with CrossFit in her blood and it’s been our pleasure to watch her discover it. Emily has a rare focus and commitment to her training and nutrition, and she is on a direct path to being in the best […]

January Athlete of the Month – Scott MacCaull

Raise your hand if you’re in your twenties and 41 year old Scott MacCaull has destroyed you in a WOD. There are so many reasons why we’ve picked Scott for the January AOM. He’s one of the toughest competitors in our gym, and he pushes everyone around him to be better. Scott doesn’t let his […]

Luckily, Lindsay and Brian’s friend from Iron Tribe Fitness convinced him to give CrossFit a try…

July Athlete of the Month – Agnes Weis

Yan (pronounced “Yen”) joined CFS at the start of January 2013 and he had quite a long way to go in terms of conditioning and mastering our movements. But Yan was determined and he was patient. He asked questions, scaled appropriately, […]
