Kayla is our February Member of the Month! Kayla is a fixture in PUSH511's morning CrossFit classes! This is why Kayla's coaches love having her in class:
Consistent Kayla, that should be her nickname, puts in the work on a regular basis. Bright Spot Friday is usually about a fun new adventure trying out. Can not wait to see how Kayla rocks the 2022 Open!
Kayla has always been fun to have in class as a coach and fellow athlete. Consistently shows up (maybe a little late after Sunday Funday), quietly improves on her skills, keeps pushing herself, listens to the coaches, understands her limits going into a workout, and is there to support the crew she workouts out with. Keep up with being the incredibly fun person that you are inside and outside of the gym!
One of our consistent members who shows up and puts in the work. Always up for a good workout challenge. Whenever Kayla shows up for class I know she’ll going to rock the WOD.
Kayla is a 6 am staple! She is so well-rounded as an athlete and a quiet assassin in workouts. She just puts her head and chips away at a WOD. She has been consistently getting better and stronger and I am not sure she fully recognizes just how strong she is! She is always fun to have in class and don't be fooled by her quiet demeanor, she can drop a funny and sarcastic comment at any point!
