Carly is Athlete Of The Week!
Congratulations to Carly who was recognized as Athlete Of The Week at CrossFit Amundson. Back in the summer of 2012, Carly and Greg Amundson had a conversation that went like this:
“Greg, I’m really sorry – I threw up in your planter box.” Carly to Greg.
“That’s OK – it happens to the best of us! Welcome to the gym!” Greg to Carly.
Since that day, Carly has made some of the most incredible progress, both mentally and physically, ever recorded in our gym. From running her first “Big Loop” to displaying impeccable technique in her Olympic Lifts, Carly is an absolutely incredible Athlete and woman. One of the reasons Carly is so loved in the gym is her determination and Warrior Spirit during the workouts. A source of encouragement and inspiration to all who know her, Carly has captured the hearts of everyone at CrossFit Amundson with her kindness, perseverance, work-ethic, and humor. Carly’s advice to new CrossFit Athletes: “Your can do it – just one repetition at a time!” Congratulations Carly on all your success, both inside and outside the gym. Keep up the awesome work!
