NO MERCY CROSSFIT ATHLETE OF THE MONTH
Few people have the rare combination of raw physical talent, work ethic, and heart. No Mercy CrossFit has the pleasure to train a guy that possesses all of these attributes and more. I have had the pleasure of knowing our newest athlete of the month since I was 5 years old. I got to witness this guy compete up close and personal through speed skating. We competed against each other and became fast friends. This guy has always had something special inside him that most people don't have. That burning desire to be something special, to outwork the man standing next to him and perform just a little bit better. Failure is not an option for this guy. He has competed in virtually every sport imaginable and excelled at all of them. He has won golden gloves boxing matches and holds a blackbelt in brazilian jiujitsu. When I needed somebody I could count on at work I knew where to turn. He shows up everyday early and puts his head down and goes to work. It is often said that we learn our most valuable lessons when we get knocked down…..and this guy has been knocked down time after time and always gets back up, brushes himself off and reinvents himself. Don't let the rough exterior fool you….he has a heart of gold. I knew that he would be a tremendous asset to the No Mercy Community. He trains hard, encourages others and is always the first one to volunteer to help. He just loves being a part of something great. On June 13th he will make his competitive debut at Practice CrossFit's battle of the Ages, and I am fortunate enough to get to partner up with him. This guy has BIG aspirations and I have know doubt that when he puts his mind to it there is nothing that will prevent him from reaching his goals.
No Mercy Trainer Jason Moore has chosen Rocky Bowman to be our newest award winner, and this is what Jason had to say………..
" As I see a lot people work hard every day but over the last few months there has been one person who has just amazed me every day I see them workout. When he first started you could just see the fire in his eyes. He wanted to learn and soak up any knowledge you could feed him. Once you show him a movement you can bet that you will see him off to the side working on it over and over. He might not be the biggest guy in the gym but I would argue has one of the biggest hearts. This burning desire to succeed and win is going to take him far. Joe has said this athlete will make a run at the masters games next year and I truly believe this will be the case. I am happy to choose Rocky as this months athlete of the month. Thanks for the energy and hardwork you bring to the gym and keep busting you ass bro.
