ATHLETE FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST IS RON HOWARD!!
Crossfit-AC athlete for the month of August is Ron Howard, this is his story!!
Thanks to Dino, Perry, Francesca and Vanessa for this honor. I am 52 years old, married to Susan for 20 years and I have a 14 year old son Max. The whole family comes to Crossfit-AC! I sell software for my “real” job. Susan and I also run 4 Sport Clips Hair Salons in Milford, Northborough, Marlborough and Hudson. Coming to Crossfit-AC helps to keep me sane.
I started Crossfit in 2013. I had returned from a vacation on Cape Cod and after seeing pictures of myself at the beach, I realized something needed to change. I had always been a globo gym member, but never seemed to make any progress. I saw the Crossfit Games on TV and decided to check out Crossfit-AC. FIve years later, I am still coming 3-4 times per week. I travel quite a bit for my sales job and have visited about 15 other Crossfit gyms in the US and Mexico. I can tell you that the workouts that Dino and Perry put together are the most challenging.
I think, however, that the best part of the gym is the people. I’ve met so many great people and have made a bunch of friends. I’d like to thank everyone, especially Russ Berger and Susanne Logan, for their friendship and encouragement. A shout out to coach Nguyen Huynh for his help with my snatching – the barbell club on Saturday morning is one of my favorite classes.
Thanks again to everyone at the gym and I will see you at the 3:30 class!
