Congratulations, Heather!

Heather is our July Member of the Month! Here's why the PUSH511 coaches love having her in class:

Heather always comes into a CrossFit class with the most upbeat and positive attitude. Always has a smile on her face even during the toughest WODs. Acknowledges everyone in class. Very coachable and fun to be around. Always up for the challenge if you encourage her she’ll take your word on it. Not surprised she’s member of the month. She definitely deserves it!

I just met Heather on Saturday and she was smiling the whole time, cheering everyone on. She definitely stood out!

Yessss, Heather is so great! She was so enthusiastic in foundations and such a bright light, just as she continues to be! She has a great attitude, she wants to get better but she also wants to have fun. It’s the right mix that brightens up any class. She is so deserving of member of the month!

Heather is so much fun to have in class! She learns very quickly and isn’t afraid to ask questions or put herself out there to try new things. She is super friendly and mixes in well with any class she’s in. It will be really fun to see how much she improves as she continues to learn!

Well deserved athlete of the month! Heather always comes in with a huge smile on her face, eager to learn and receive feedback. She’s a breath of fresh air and such a joy to coach and be in class with. You can’t have a bad time with her in your class, her positivity and energy are contagious. We need more Heathers in the world!

Heather always showed up to our meetings with an upbeat attitude and a smile on her face! I really enjoyed being her nutrition coach, she was always very receptive to ideas and feedback. This was evident in the awesome results she had within just one month of coaching! I can't wait to see what the future has in store for her at PUSH511!

Now, let's get to know our July Member of the Month!
