Like most of our Spotlight athletes, when we told them they had been chosen, they both laughed and thought it was a mistake. The most common thing being said was, “But I’m not an athlete.” We beg to differ. Every person who walks in our doors is the very definition of an athlete and Mike and Jeanie are no different.
SPOTLIGHT ATHLETE: a person/or persons who inspire other athletes with their drive, dedication and success.
Before joining CrossFit I’d get up in the morning feeling stiff and sore for no particular reason; now I have one and it’s great.
When we asked them what they love most about NCF and the CrossFit community they said, in unison, the people.
The first day was a bit overwhelming and intimidating. But then we started the workout and everyone was so positive. It didn’t take long for me to start feeling comfortable.
The strength and intensity of the CrossFit members is amazing to witness. But also the acceptance, encouragement and personalized workouts we receive every time we walk in the door. I look forward to those intense workouts now.
When it comes to favorite “moves,” Mike enjoys the PVC pipe stretches he does every morning before the WOD while Jeanie loves the shoulder stretches and ring rows. And their future goals?
I’d like to improve my core strength by moving onto the bar for more intense core workouts.
-JeanieCompleting 5 straight pull-ups and 5 hand stand push-ups is my ultimate goal.
They’re an incredible couple to be around and they never cease to amaze me with what they’re capable of. They always downplay their abilities and their roles at the gym. Don’t let them fool you. Age is just a number.
Mike and Jeanie are amazing people. They work so hard and I’m so proud of them for coming to our gym and giving us a chance. They are not only amazing athletes, they are amazing humans and they have given so much to Doug and I. We are blessed to know them!
We’ve really enjoyed getting to know everyone and being included in this CrossFit community. Thank you.
