Huge congrats to our March athlete of the month! Nick wells has been training with us for a few months now with his partner in crime Valery, and recently took part in his first CrossFit Open and really surprised himself with his results. Nick has one of the biggest hearts in the box and is always cheering, supporting and encouraging other members. He’s often found cheering the loudest for the ones who finish last. Nick has recently learnt how to split jerk and is now crushing new 1RMs every week. We can’t wait to see how Nick goes with a few more months training under his sleeve!
