October Athlete of the Month:

CONGRATS TO OCT. ATHLETE OF THE MONTH Lindsay STEVENS,
Lindsay has been more consistent and her hard work has paid off. Keep it up Lindsay!
Here is what Lindsay had to say about her journey thus far;
“I started CrossFit in Feb. of 2014 at CrossFit St. Helens. I have had multiple gym memberships that just didn’t work for me. I wanted to try something that would hold me accountable with an instructor or trainer. Prior to joining I had been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and had been struggling with weight gain for a few years. Upon starting, “CrossFit” was a foreign word to me. I had heard great things about it and seen actual results from friends. I decided to give it a try. I puked my first class and felt crazy for deciding to go back, I guess you can say, “I drank the kool-aid.”
In the beginning I wasn’t consistent at all, I just showed up to class whenever I felt like it, but the more I came,the more people started to know my name and encouraged me to push myself to succeed with the workouts. I was held accountable and became more interested in the CrossFit community and what my body was capable of. The members of my “box” are more than a face I see at the gym on a regular basis, they are more like family and part of the reason I have been so successful in the past few months.
Two months ago I decided to make a lifestyle change and get serious with my health. I now have been clean eating without caffeine or alcohol for 50 days. My goal as an athlete (I say athlete because honestly they come in all shapes and sizes and I am stronger today than I have ever been even at 100 lbs lighter) is to make it to class 3 times a week, which doesn’t always happen but I have noticed results. I am down 17 pounds and 2 inches in my waist. The text is a message I sent my coach the day I was able to fit into a regular pair of jeans.”
