This month, our gym is super excited to celebrate one of our members who has been with us since Day One! She always has a huge smile on her face and cheers her teammates on. And in the last few months, her coach Justin Smith has really noticed the extra effort she is putting into every day and every workout she is at the gym. “Because of her awesome attitude, effort and progress I want to recognize Brittney Wells. Our gym wouldn’t be the same without her!” – Justin Smith
About 2 years ago Brittney met this guy at a social event who was super excited to tell people about “some gym” he was opening. This is the first time she met Justin Smith who invited her to come check it out. She didn’t quite know what to think but one thing she could tell was this guy was really excited about sharing his love for Crossfit with people which ultimately lead to her decision to join the Crossfit Greenwood.
Her first WOD (workout of the day) was on opening day and she accounts for it as the most memorable one yet. “I still remember the warm up and thinking it was the workout. So when Justin said- ‘Ok, now time for the actual workout’, I was confused momentarily!”
Even though there are some moments Brittney looks at a WOD and doubts herself, it is when she realizes she can and does complete what she thought should couldn;t do, —those moments become her favorite WODs and an achievement.
“My Crossfit goal is pretty simple – Get better each & every day.” -Brittney Wells
Last month Brittney completed the 31,000 meter row challenge which required her to row a minimum of 1,000 meters every day! It is so great to see Brittney setting goals and crushing them. That’s what being part of the Crossfit community is about!
The CFG family wouldn’t be the same without Her.. For anyone new joining CFG, she wants you to know, “Congratulations! You just made one of the best decisions. You’re going to love this! Welcome to the CFG FAM!!”
