Tori is PUSH511's December Member of the Month! Tori is a regular in PUSH's afternoon group CrossFit classes and she is also a PUSH nutrition coaching alum! She shows up consistently and is always ready to put in the hard work day in and day out, which is why our team nominated her for Member of the Month. This is why our team loves having her at PUSH:
Tori always comes in and gives it her all. She’s fun to have in class and is eager to learn new things. Also, she’s giving it her all every single class, whether is a barbell day or straight up cardio.
Tori is an absolute force! Since day one she comes in ready to work, and it has definitely paid off. She's also so personable and supportive of other athletes - everyone likes being in class with her. She's an awesome person to be with for partner WODs - she will drag you along whether you like it or not!
TORI! There isn't a bad thing to be said about this girl. She is determined, she is kind, and she is so fun to coach. She works hard outside of the gym at her job and comes into the gym to continue to get things done. I can't wait to see where she is a year from now, when she is maxing out her lifts in her new NoBulls.
Always up for a challenge and comes at it with an excited, big positive energy. Tori has made tremendous progress since she’s been with us and I’m excited to see where she’ll be within a year more.
Tori is so fun to have in class! Tori is always bringing the energy, and attacks workouts with intensity! Her positivity is definitely contagious and really helps make for a fun hour when she’s in the building.
Tori is a gem of a human! She always comes in to work and gives 100%, regardless of how she is feeling that day. She is just a down-to-earth person and always gives out fun vibes when she’s in class. It’s been fun to watch her progress!
