Athlete of the Month – January 2012

And the “Athlete of the Month” for January 2012 at CrossFit CrownTown is…


Yes, that is Joe Merriam, during his bodybuilding days before he found CrossFit.

I joined CrossFit because I had heard a lot about it and was feeling bored with my current gym routine. I started working out when I was 15 years old and have had some sort of workout routine ever since. Before CrossFit CrownTown I felt physically fit, but I wanted to be more flexible and I also wanted to lose that bodybuilder look.

Since joining CrossFit CrownTown not only do I have more flexibility, I feel stronger, leaner and the competitive aspect of CrossFit has really helped me push myself mentally. I’m excited to work out again. CrossFit CrownTown makes me look forward to the challenge of the workout.
Working out with Cammi (my wife) and Dylan (my son) is fun because as you all know, when you CrossFit, it seems like all you want to do is talk about your workout, and unless you do it…you don’t get it!

I look forward to getting stronger and faster in the upcoming year.
Thank you CrossFit CrownTown and thank you Wayne!

I’d like to add that Joe is an extremely dedicated athlete (47 years young – don’t trip!) Since starting at CrossFit CrownTown I can count on one hand how many times he hasn’t showed up for his workout. And, those times he didn’t show up I knew about it weeks in advance, as it was only due to him being out of town for his son’s motocross racing. You better believe that he asked me to program a travel WOD for him during those times. I appreciate Joe’s positive attitude, his dedication and consistency around the gym. He fits right in the culture here. – WW
