NOVEMBER 2016- WHAT ARE YOUR SMCF TRAINERS THANKFUL FOR?

COACH JOEL:

  • Family – Both my blood relatives and the family I have bled next to within the walls of SMCF. SO much laughter, learning, & accomplishments have happened in my life thanks to the great people who I surround myself within and outside of the gym
  • Health – I have been lucky enough to not have any major health issues or complications. An obvious contributor is my love of exercise and clean eating!
  • My daughter Olivia – My one true inspiration to be the best person I can be in every possible aspect on a daily basis. It’s scary to think where I’d be if I wasn’t blessed with her in my life.

COACH JIMI:

  • My wife’s booty which I owe in part to SMCF.

COACH SCOTT:

  • HEALTH- In world full of disease & unfortunate circumstances, never take your health for granted.  You only have one life, take care of it & be active!
  • FAMILY & FRIENDS- I enjoy nothing more than being surrounded by people that you love & love you back in a positive light.
  • TEACHING & COACHING- The satisfaction of being granted the ability & privilege to help people on a daily basis is something I treasure.  During the day in the classroom, at night at the gym, wherever possible I gain pleasure seeing someone accomplish something that they never thought possible.

COACH EARL:

  • I’m thankful that SMCF CrossFit gives me an environment where people are as serious about their fitness as I am; however, I find their opinions of my musical choices odd #deathgrips
  • I’m also thankful that SMCF is literally open all the time, virtually every day (at least in my mind) to allow me to fitness–this is probably and overstatement, but you know
  • And I am most thankful for my incredible wife, extraordinary children, and an overly supportive extended family
