I’m Parker Hammond and I am honored to be chosen “Athlete of the Month.” My CrossFit journey at CFMC started about six months ago due in large part to my good friend, Dr. Mark Beaty. I was at a point in my life feeling lazy and soft from not working out since about 2012. Knowing he would keep me accountable made all of the difference. Since starting my workouts I’ve felt more confident, accomplished and have a generally better outlook on day to day life. If you, or anyone you know, are having reservations about starting CrossFit, throw those aside. The friends I’ve made in the short time I’ve been going to CFMC are friends that will last a lifetime. Lastly, I would like to thank Heather, Jason, Rob and all of the CFMC coaches for being so helpful in this journey. I couldn’t do it without you guys!
