High Voltage Rising
It’s been a pretty exciting week here at CFHV. So many members have been achieving new personal goals as well as setting some new ones. Our community has rallied around each other to show the love & support inside and outside the gym. I’m really proud of some of the things I’ve had the privilege to witness.
Earlier this week our amazing momWOD crew held a little baby shower for three of our ladies: Julie Engelhardt, Dani Adkins, & Adriana Garcia. What an incredible gift this was for them to take the time to celebrate and support some moms to be. I don’t know of a lot of gyms that have a group of people so tight knit, so this was really special.
There were snacks, gifts, diaper towers, decorations, oh my! Sorry I couldn’t find a picture with all three lovely ladies, but if anyone has one send it along and I’d love to share it!
There was also a special announcement in case you missed it. It just so happens to involve another of the momWOD crew. Two CFHV athletes will be competing at the end of this month at the Battleground SoCal Competition!
It takes place April 28 @Harbor Sports Complex, 1221 N. Figueroa Place, Wilmington, CA, 90744.
Brittany Berryman is a certified Firebreather and a seasoned competitor. She will be competing in the team event along with her partner Raquel under the tutelage of their coach, our very own Joshua Murillo.
Leslie Zwicker has had an absolutely extraordinary transformation as an athlete this past year, and will be competing in her first ever competition! She has really made CrossFit High Voltage a lifestyle, with her whole family in on the fun now. What an exciting time!
Let’s make sure to show our support and get a group together to head out and cheer on our athletes as they put their hard work to the test!
Finally, and last but not least, we capped the week with not one…not two…but THREE new athletes passing the infamous “Trial by Fire” and earning their place in our Advanced Class Saturday mornings.
This is one of the most challenging hours of training of the week, and that means having to pass a beast of a test. Each of these athletes proved themselves and had the courage to face their weaknesses, work on them to improve, and have the grit to accept the challenge.
Each of them faced different obstacles, but they conquered them with pride. We welcome Matt Capron, Andrea McDaniel, & our first ever Masters athlete to pass the test, Frank Balbuena. In case you didn’t figure it out yet, that’s even more people from the momWOD crew rising up.
Make sure to congratulate each of them when you see them!
