January Athlete Of The Month: GINA ALANIZ

Where do I begin?! I am truly humbled to have been named Athlete of the Month. Never would I have imagined being where I am today.

When I heard CrossFit XLR8 would be opening up a second location in Calallen, to say I was excited, would be an understatement. Finally, our little community would be getting a “box” all of its own.

Being pretty active throughout my life, I wanted to try CrossFit since I had heard so many good things about it. I went to the grand opening at the end of June 2013 and have been there every day since. I am hooked!

I cannot thank the coaches, my husband, family and friends enough for all of their support and encouragement these last six months. I’ve been able to do things I never imagined I could do and I owe it all to you guys.
