Featured Athlete: Adam Hall
My name is Adam Hall and I’m really honored to be the August Athlete of the Month! I came to CrossFit Mid-County exactly one year ago to improve my physical well being. Off-and-on I had run and lifted weights since moving to the area a few years ago and I was definitely in a rut and way out of shape. It wasn’t since I had lived in San Francisco and been a member of a boxing gym that I had actually committed myself to work out regularly. It dawned on me that something was missing that was keeping me accountable for my fitness. I had driven by CrossFit Mid-County numerous times and finally decided to check it out. When I first stepped foot at CFMC I found exactly what I been missing, the comradery of the membership.
Everyone in the gym had a smile on their face and looked like they were happy to be there (I guess they had not started the Metcon yet!). I saw the support of the members encouraging each other to keep going and do another rep even when completely exhausted. I knew I had found something special and after doing my on-ramp, signed up shortly thereafter.
I look forward to coming to every class. It never seems like something I have to do, it’s something I want to do. Classes are never dull and the workouts so varied I’m never able to get into a comfort zone. I may groan when I hear about having to do some movements, especially those that are my weakest, but they are the ones I’m most proud of doing afterward. But mostly, it’s you all, the members and coaches that keep me coming back day in and day out. The weights and movements may be the first thing people think of when it comes to CrossFit, but it’s the community that defines it. Thank you all very much!
