CFB MVP award: Jack Morris
This MVP has been a long time coming. Jack is hard working, self-disciplined and the son we all hope to have. Jack is truly the hardest worker we know. Members of all ages look up to Jack. Although he might lap you in Murph, he will be the first one standing there cheering you on as soon as he is done. Jack just graduated from Bootcamp and infantry school. Monday-Friday Jack would come to every 6am class go straight to school, go to soccer after school, and if he had time would come back after soccer. Every time he walks into the gym he GRINDS. Jack is fan favorite! We miss him dearly and know he will make us proud!
What advice would you give to a new person?
The best advice I could give to a new person, is to just dive into this gym. Talk to people, talk to the coaches, come to the various activities and events, and have fun. I loved every minute I spent at the gym. The people here are generous and really interesting people. They are some of the best people over ever met, and I’m so thankful to have met them. And the activities are always filled with games and an all around great time. So definitely get involved and I promise you’ll fall in love with coming to class and going to the gym.
What results have you seen?
The results I have seen have been more than I could’ve asked for. Both mentally and physically. Physically, every aspect of fitness has improved. I’ve become such a more well rounded athlete because of CFB and I feel so much more prepared for life because of CrossFit. My workout times have cut in half, my weightlifting numbers have added over 50lbs on my lifts, and the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment that comes with CrossFit is unmatched. Mentally, CFB has really made me want to be the best me, to be happy and a better person, seeing everyone that everyone is so kind and caring here. The combination of CrossFit, and the incredible community at the gym really gave me results I never thought I’d find.
An open question- make up your own question and answer it.
What is your favorite CrossFit movement?
My favorite CrossFit movement is definitely the burpee. It can count for a cardio piece, it goes great for intensity, and is an all around pain fest. It can be done anywhere and are perfect for limited time/space.
