November Athlete of the Month: KRYSTAL SANCHEZ

“I started CrossFit back in June with the intentions of getting stronger and better my training as an MMA fighter. Little did I know I would hang up my gloves to transition into a crossfitter for good. I have been blessed with amazing coaches that inspire, motivate and truly believe in me. They care to help you become better, stronger, and faster. They do not give up on you even when you are ready to give up on yourself. I never thought I would be able to do a pull-up or power clean or any heavy weights period!!! With their patience and encouragement, I pushed myself to another level. I can do 15# weighted pull-ups now and I can power clean 105#. These are only a few of my accomplishments! I feel so blessed to be recognized for my hard work. This is just the beginning of my CrossFit journey and I can’t wait to see what’s up ahead as I grown with my awesome CrossFit family. Thank you for all you have done for me XLR8 coaches! Greg West, thank you for the times I wanted to quit and you would give me the tough love in that mean voice. “You wanna compete right?” “Then don’t quit!!!” LOL …that helped me out mentally…”
