Mike joined 6S not long before the February 2019 Open began. While being athletic most of his life, Mike had never tried CrossFit, but you would have never guessed it given how much and how fast he has progressed since he first joined! However, it's less his quantitative progress and more about his caring, supportive personality which we admire most. Mike will be the first person in your class to cheer you on, the first to say hi to a new member who walks into the gym, and the one person you can count on to always make others feel welcome. Not only does Mike embody the core values of 6S inside the gym, but this is also evident in every aspect of his life.

On Saturday, September 14th, we hosted our first squats and tacos challenge! The premise was simple: weigh yourself, load up a percentage of your bodyweight on the bar (50% for an intermediate challenge, 100% for RX), and squat it for as many times as you can for 5 minutes. The idea behind this challenge was quite intuitive, because no matter which discipline in which you found yourself here at CrossFit6S, whether that’s CrossFit, Powerlifting, or Olympic Weightlifting, the barbell back squat is a foundational movement for which all athletes have a degree of proficiency.
