Member Spotlight

We are so sad writing this post!

Celeste has decided to start a new chapter to be a travel nurse! She’ll be traveling around the US working and trying new CrossFit gyms! Don’t worry we are her #1 and she’ll be back to visit us soon!!

Celeste has been doing CrossFit for about 3 years now. She started doing CrossFit because she was looking for something new and it looked more intriguing than the boot camp classes. She says, “The girls looked strong AF and I wanted to look like that!”💪🏻

The biggest change Celeste has seen since joining CrossFit is the amount of friends, support, accountability, and motivation she gets from the community.

She says, “CrossFit has helped me with my overall strength and confidence. It’s also helped my friends because they are always asking me to help them move.”

We asked Celeste what type of advice she would give someone who is thinking of starting their fitness/nutrition journey, this is what she said. “Once you get that motivation to come in, mind over matter.. You made it in once, just keep it on repeat. Don’t push too hard initially and don’t be afraid or embarrassed to ask for help or guidance.

Celeste, we are going to miss you!! We wish you good luck in your new venture and can’t wait to have you come back to visit to share your travels!
