Athlete of the Month – February

.

The Zone wants to recognize all our athletes as much as possible, and this is why we ask you to keep track of all your weekly PR’s on the whiteboard.  We spotlight all of you once a month in the newsletter.  So keep up the hard work and dedication so you can  get your name on the whiteboard at least once a week!

This month we are beginning a new protocol for recognizing athletes for their achievements.  We are starting to acknowledge one athlete per month for their continued dedication at the Zone.  This is an athlete that does not miss any of their training sessions in a week, are setting and achieving goals, using their skills sessions to dial in their technique and continually working on healthy life style changes in their nutrition.

This month we chose an early bird Zoner, one that you may have had a chance to meet over the last year, Jeff Kreczmer!  Jeff has been one of our dedicated Zoners over the last year, that’s right he just reached his one year anniversary at the Zone.  I am so proud of Jeff, he has worked so hard and has come so far with his technique and getting stronger every week.  He competed this past weekend in the Zone Games 4 with the big boys and he made us all proud!

Check out this super cool video that our fellow Zoner Tubbs McGee (AKA – Ryan Clarke) put together for our wonderful athlete of the month!

Who is going to be next????

    Congratulations, Jeff! Your video makes you look like a superhero. 😉 It’s great to get a chance to hear your background story, and understand what drives you at the Zone.

    Well done by Tubbs, too!
