Britain is Athlete of The Week

______________

On behalf of all the Athletes at CrossFit Amundson, congratulations to Britain on being recognized as Athlete of The Week. Britain is respected in the gym for his incredible work capacity, warrior spirit, determination, and sincere encouragement for his fellow competitors. Britain frequently posts some of the fastest workout times, yet is humble about his success and is always eager to improve his performances. Britain also participates in the CrossFit Amundson Yoga and Mobility Program, and his practice has noticeably improved. Outside the gym, Britain is a devoted husband and father, and an active part of his Church. The success of our Memorial Day Murph and Fourth of July events are largely due to Britain’s leadership, organization and awesome cooking skills. Congratulations Britain!
