Quite a few months ago a gentlemen with a few miles on his legs walked into our doors and told me he was looking for a change. He had never done CrossFit before but was ready to go. Within minutes I put him through a short 8 min. AMRAP and the rest is history. That guy is not the same person who wods nearly everyday with us now. He has grown as an athlete, and made great strides to be healthy. He is always willing to help out at the gym and doesn't hesitate to jump into competitions, or even volunteer to build new storage space for the new box. This guy has taught me a lot since joining that he probaly wasn't aware of. He showed me that CrossFit is for everybody. It doesn't always have to be competition based but the heart of the community is about people that simply want to be stronger today than the were yesterday, and that in itself is CrossFit. No Mercy Trainer Dustin "D-Lo" Brown had the honor of choosing Mr. Scott Cromes as the May Athlete of the Month.
"As I learn more and more about the No Mercy Athletes, I am amazed as there are so many of you that deserve the title, “Athlete of the Month”. Everyone cheering each other on to get better, push harder and to get stronger… Whether you are the first one done or the last one done, we are there for one another. There is one athlete that has stood out these past several months with his hard work, dedication, drive and consistency. He shows up 10min before class, groggy but energetic, ready to learn and get better than the day before. He has lost weight, inches, PR’d several movements (Back Squats, Front Squats, Dead Lifts…), is hanging with other athletes 15-20yrs younger than him, and looks for more when he leave. He does all this before most people are waking up. Scott Cromes in my choice for the Athlete of the Month. He has been consistently been coming to the 5:30am class and is kicking ass!!! The next time you see Scott, congratulate him on his progress. Congrats Scott, Keep up the good work!!!!"
