We are proud to announce our September Athlete of the Month as John Mezzio!
John has been a member of MCCF since last March and has been stepping up his game! He has been showing up, putting in the work and it shows! I asked John to give us a little insight as to why MCCF is a special place for him and here is what he had to say….
“I was looking for some way to get back in to shape, and a friend at work had, at one time, run a box in Hartford. She convinced me to give it a try and told me what to look for when choosing a box. MidCoast was my first experience with Crossfit, and from the moment I began my on-ramp with Zack, I knew it was in the right place.
Besides the improvement in my health, which I have been really happy with, I have noticed a big reduction in my stress level. I really look forward to my workouts (it’s a good pain) and the WODs just seem to wipe away all the stresses of daily life.
The most surprising thing has been the way that everyone supports each other not only during the WOD, but in life. It really feels like a family, and without that support and encouragement I don’t think I would have been able to keep up with the workouts. My biggest achievement was completing my first Rx WOD…… now if I could only learn to do DUs!”
We will get you your DU’s for sure John! You keep putting in the time because you’ve come so far already!
From all of us at MCCF – Congratulations John, you are the MCCF September Athlete of the Month!
