DECEMBER 2016 ATHLETE OF THE MONTH
Our coaches routinely express that it's not always about coming in and completing the workout of the day, it is also about how your positive energy can influence those around you. Thankfully, across the board, the CFCM athletes set the example of what it takes to believe in others' progress as much as their own. We are grateful that our athletes show that the way you carry and believe in yourself is not only vital to your own personal growth, but to the athlete that may be looking at you as their motivation.
The December 2016 Athlete of the Month (AOM) is another example of how positive energy helps others. Gianni ("Tights") Pablos constantly has a positive attitude in and out of the gym. His personality rubs off on everyone around him. A close friend summed it up, "He leads a very well balanced, happy, and productive life, in all aspects of life. He makes those people around him better because of his attitude and abilities in all aspects".
We would love to go on and on personally about Gianni, but we cannot forget to describe the type of athlete he is. He's a well rounded athlete that tackles all his weaknesses head on. Over the last six months, Gianni has found something in his fitness. No, not new tights! He has found a heightened level of intensity that we can see in each of his workouts. He's found that balance between technique and intensity that is important to athletes. This is evident in the numerous personal records he has achieved over the last few months, in his back squat, deadlift, and press to name a few. Not to mention, he is now able to string together multiple muscle-ups. More importantly he did all this while still supporting others in their personal growth. This support and leadership is worthy of recognition.
So the coaches of CFCM would like to congratulate Gianni on his selection as the December 2016 AOM and also on his recent work promotion. Gianni, continue to be humble, kind, motivating, and never forget your tights!
