May Athlete of the Month: NATALIE DEBELLAS

I started Crossfit in Feb 2012, after years of Greg & Holli telling me that I needed to join, because they knew I would like it. They were right. The minute I started I LOVED it (even though I died and couldn’t walk for a week ~ thanks to wall balls)!!! I love that sometimes I hate it that I showed up, but am so happy when I leave ~ and exhausted!! I love that I am able to compete again ~ even if it is against myself, someone in class, or a time/weight on the board, but it’s so fun and something I have truly missed. I love the friends I have made while killing ourselves, and pushing ourselves & each other. I love the fact that the coaches (Molly, Greg, Zeph, Jason, Ryan, April, & Ash) are there everyday to push us, kill us, and make us better, faster, stronger, and help us to not only reach, but surpass our goals. Basically, I love Crossfit, the XLR8 family, and am so blessed to be part of this amazing group of PHENOMENAL athletes!! Thank you all so much for pushing me and helping me accomplish things that I never thought in a million years I could!! Love ya’ll! 🙂
