When Astrid and her husband, Dave, first joined our community she seemed somewhat unsure and a little reserved about the whole CrossFit situation. There were things that she was clearly not comfortable with, but with some positive reassurance, she was always willing to try. For Astrid, as it is for many people, CrossFit was new to Astrid and quite a divergence from her regular workout. Before too long, however she began to relax and become more comfortable within the group and has become a very enthusastic and determined CrossFitter.
Over the last few months, we have seen a significant transformation both physically in Astrid’s performance, but also in her openness in and around the gym. Her reactions and responses to the WOD’s are always worth a laugh or two–raw, real and from the heart! The shock combined with fear combined with her positive attitude makes for an original reaction nearly every day. Her positive energy within the classes is only part of the reason for her being chosen as CrossFitter of the Month this month. Astrid has become a firmly entrenched member of our CrossFit community. She supports our events, fully embraced our 60 Day FPL Challenge and has made Paleo nutrition her lifestyle, is always supportive of her classmates during workouts and is a very active in regards to commenting on our posts and our facebook page. Astrid is a fantastic supporter of CrossFit DV as she has gotten nearly her entire family CrossFitting along with her. She has recently moved from the pruple band to the red band and is challenging herself daily with more weight and more work. In the true spirit that embodies CrossFit and especially CrossFit DV, she fights through the WOD’s completing every last rep. Astrid is a real pleasure to have in class and we are very proud and delighted to have her part of our community.
Congratulations Astrid, you are our CrossFitter of the Month!!
