Congratulations to Wade Gannon for he is CrossFit Total Empowerment’s Athlete of the Month for September! We want to acknowledge his commitment by giving a 110% in every class, no matter what the WOD may be, and also for giving a 110% when he steps out that door.
We asked Wade to share his experience with CFTE and here is what he had to say:
“After having three kids and not being active for a few years, with the exception of playing golf, I decided it was time to shed some pounds and get healthy for myself and my family. Several individuals at work were doing crossfit in their respective communities so I decide to look it up. I came across CFTE via the internet and decided to give it a try. I chose CFTE solely based off your webpage compared to other local crossfits. At first I was a little worried about being able to handle the workouts, “WOD’s, but Coach Dennis made me feel extremely comfortable from the first day. I have played recreational sports my entire life but was never that big into weight lifting. Since joining CFTE I have dropped about 30 pounds and gained muscle/strength in the process. Throughout different periods in my life I had memberships to the big box gyms, i.e. Jack LaLanne (Bally Total Fitness, yeah I’m showing my age), Planet Fitness, etc. I never got out what I needed from these gyms. I knew I needed structure, and CFTE was the place I was going to get the structure I needed.
Each day I look forward to seeing what the WOD is and if I can’t make it to the box that day I feel guilty. Every Coach at CFTE is amazing and the support they provide is the best, I wouldn’t see myself working out at any other gym again.
CFTE also attracts the best group of people, there is not one person that I have met at CFTE that does not encourage one other to get to the next level, this is a testament to how great the coaches at CFTE are. About a week into joining CFTE, I remember one particular WOD, Fight Gone Bad, after that workout I was hooked.
Thank you for recognizing all the hard work I try to put in every day but I wouldn’t be able to do it without the Coaches and the all the members of CFTE.”
And Thank you, Wade, for being the best version of you each and every time you show up!
