Talking With JD
What do I love about CF: There’s many reasons I love Crossfit. As an athlete, I love the physical and mental grind. Each day there’s a new challenge to overcome or a new skill to improve. It demands your best effort every day. As a coach/member, my favorite thing about Crossfit is the community. I love that people from all walks of life are able to come into a class and push each other, through competition and encouragement, to be the best version of themselves.
What do I love about being a coach at CFLE: I love the people here at CFLE. Our members completely epitomize what a Crossfit community should be. They care about each other, they’re coachable, and they work hard. They make coaching a blast.
