CFO Athlete Spotlight
Today’s post is the first in a series of posts we’d like to do, which we’ve named the CFO Athlete Spotlight. The purpose of our spotlight is for us to share a little bit of info with you about a particular CrossFitter so that you can get to know the members of our community.
Annie Vought started training with us a couple of months ago and has made fast progress by focusing on the fundamental movements of CrossFit (or mechanics, if you prefer), then slowly adding volume to establish consistency. But that’s just about Annie’s training…
We’re continually impressed, and even humbled, by the people who walk through our doors to train with us. CrossFit has an interesting way of selecting individuals with talents in diverse disciplines (far outside of athletics). Annie is no different in that respect.
In addition to being an ever-improving CrossFitter, Annie is an artist. Her medium is paper, and she creates paper-cutout pieces (sorry, Annie, if I’m bludgeoning the description of what you do!). Rather than have me fumble through with clumsy words describing what she does, go see her work yourself:
It’s not uncommon for Annie to spend upwards of 150 hours working on a single piece. Now that’s commitment! With discipline like that, it’s no surprise that Annie’s made such progress with her training at CFO.
Keep up the great work, Annie, at CFO and away from CFO!
We’ll be running an abbreviated schedule this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday:
Thursday 11/23/06: 10:00 a.m.
Friday 11/24/06: 8:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., and 10:00 a.m.
Please note that Thursday’s workout is our community workout and is free to all comers. Don’t be shy: bring friends, family, or anyone else you know that may want to work up a sweat before feasting on the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie (mmmmmm…yummy). Read More
