We couldn't be more proud to announce that Kevin is our July athlete of the month! Kevin is super friendly and encouraging and works his butt off every day. 

Coach Jerrica had this to say about Kevin: "If you could put a face to the idea of what makes the CrossFit community such an important component of CrossFit, it would be Kevin. He always shows up in a good mood ready to work. If there’s a new person or a drop-in, Kevin immediately sparks the conversations to make them seem as if they’ve been at 2024 for years. He’s constantly rooting on his fellow members and often the one to beat."

We are super glad that you are part of the 2024 family Kevin and we can't wait to continue on the journey with you to tons of fitness gains!
