Mike is Athlete Of The Week
Congratulations to Mike who was recognized as Athlete Of The Week at CrossFit Amundson. Mike is one of our “Military Athletes” who is using the CrossFit Amundson program to join an elite group of military warriors to keep our nation safe. Mike is a “Trifecta” Athlete who frequently attends upwards of three classes a day, including CrossFit, LIGHT, and Warrior Yoga. Mike’s spirit is the first thing you notice when you meet him: He is kind, focused, determined, and highly principled. Mike is also a great example of the military value of selfless service, and putting his teammates before himself. As an example, with less than 12 hours notice, Mike joined a relay race team for the Fallen Officers Memorial Relay Race, where he lead his team in the average mile time. Congratulations Mike on all your success, and thank you for your service!
Good luck and safe travels to Greg Amundson who will be working with the Los Angeles Police Department Tactical and Firearms Unit this week during the LAPD HITT (Handgun Instructor for Tactics and Training) School.
