Athlete for the month  of November are Diane Crawford & Javery Crawford, this is their story.

Hi my name is Diane Crawford and I am both shocked and excited to be Athlete of The Month.  I joined Crossfit- AC many years ago when they were in a big tent in Auburn, MA.  My sister Liz had tried it and said that this is something I might be interested in.   She also said it be very challenging and was she right.  I was sore and had this love hate relationship with the gym.  I enjoy the benefits but disliked the soreness, but, I stuck with it and feel better about myself.  I introduced my sister Susanne to Crossfit, she said I’ll try it for one month and she is still there every single  day.

As things change in people’s lives, I had to leave Crossfit, however;  my goal was always to get back to the gym. Now I’m back and loving every day that I’m there.  I love the family here and the way they are so caring, so supportive and help you feel that you have accomplished the WOD. The staff Dino, Perry, Francesca, Vanessa ,  Brittany, and Lisa are awesome.  I am so grateful to them for helping me to continue to reach my goals. I have now advanced from the Foundation class to the Advanced class and was quite scarred, but the staff only encouraged me and never made me feel inadequate.  I attend classes with my 11-year-old grandson whose name is Javery Crawford.  He said to me “Gram, you must believe  Crossfit is Crossfit no matter what level you are in.  We will do this together.” I’m proud to say my grandson and I this past weekend participated in the Barbell  for Boobs Fundraiser, the cheering and support  that we received was so touching I am grateful and thankful for all they have done and continue to do for us.  Great Job Crossfit-AC.  Look forward to many more years with you.

Hi my name is Javery Crawford and I am 11 years old.  I love Crossfit-AC and take class with my Grammy.  I love my new Crossfit family, Dino, Perry, Vanessa, Brittany, Lisa and Francesca.  Whenever I need help they are there to instruct and encourage me.  I have learned a lot and can’t wait for my next day to go to the gym to do more Single Unders.

I first attended Crossfit when I was 7 years old and 4 years later I rejoined the Foundations class and just moved up with my Gram to the Advanced class.   I am happy about being nominated “Athlete Of The Month” Thanks, Crossfit-AC.  See you soon.
