Meet the Mt. Tabor CrossFit Coaches!
We are so excited to introduce you to the MTCF coaches over the next several weeks! Each week we’ll introduce a coach, tell you what we love about them, and share a little Q & A to help you get to know them a bit better. A huge thanks to our coaches for participating, and for letting us brag about them a bit!
What better place to start than with Coach Melissa, because she helps many of you athletes start your day. Best known as our bright-eyed, early AM coach, Melissa has been with MTCF since the beginning, and is one of our longest-standing coaches. With her patient, positive nature and excellent work ethic, Mel helps us all overcome that inner voice of weakness and weariness. Thanks Mel for your awesome coaching and genuine encouragement!
Let’s hear a little more from Coach Mel…
Q: How did you get your start in CrossFit and what do you love most about it?
A: My best friend trained under Coach Alex at x-factor, and when I was looking for something to whip me into shape, Alex’s newly opened gym was her recommendation! I love that it never is boring!
Q: What lift or movement do you find most challenging?
Q: What advice would you give to an athlete new to CrossFit?
A: Cut yourself some slack! It takes time for your mind and body to comprehend the movements and process of CrossFit. Once you know the movements THEN start pushing and test yourself!
Q: What is one random fact that will tell us lot about your personality?
A: My senior award was “best laugh”.
Get up early!
Coach Mel certainly has a great laugh! If you haven’t already, sign up for a 6:00am WOD to meet her and to be encouraged by her and the other early bird athletes.
Check back next week to hear from another awesome MTCF coach – and as always – get your goat this week, athletes!
