Tara first joined the CrossFit 6S family in the summer of 2018. In the fall of the same year, she added Olympic weightlifting to her training regimen and she has been a staple of CrossFit 6S and Rx Weightlifting ever since. Tara is the embodiment of a hybrid athlete. On top of CrossFit and Weightlifting, Tara is also known for her long distance endurances races, and comes from an equestrian riding background. Whether it’s in the domains of maximal strength, explosive power, aerobic conditioning, or anaerobic endurance, Tara can do it all! You only have to look at her competition record to see proof of her fitness across various domains.
Maurissa is the definition of a #badass lady! She joined CrossFit 6S with some previous CrossFit experience, but has always had a willingness to learn. She’ll be one of the first to cheer you on and support you in class, while crushing her own workout. Maurissa always brings her A-game and is such a ray of sunshine - you can’t miss her smile!
Despite having a ridiculously busy schedule, Maurissa always makes time for her fitness.
Think you don’t have time to workout? Think again!
Scott can be best described as a "quiet achiever". Scott joined Hank's Powerhouse with limited knowledge of strength training but has continually made progress in his strength with no sign of stopping. Soft spoken and humble he continues to surprise everyone in the club with his gains including breaking all of his old PRs during our in-house powerlifting meet last month. Scott is a friend to all of the members as well as a source of inspiration for his perseverance and willingness to take on new challenges as he continues to work on new skills like his first pull up.
Kendal joined 6S almost two years ago and has been a shining star ever since! She came to us with some previous CrossFit experience, but that didn't stop her from wanting to learn and better herself everyday! She gave each class her best effort and worked hard to attack some of the more complex gymnastics movements.
What's even better is that from day 1 Kendal has immersed herself in the 6S community and established herself as a positive role model and leader. Kendal has been actively involved in several community events and competitions - she is always excited for new opportunities to test her fitness and challenge herself!
AJ joined 6S over 1 year ago, and in such a short time, has left a significant mark on our entire community. AJ embodies all that we're about at 6S - respect, hard work, inclusiveness, determination and FUN! AJ will be one of the first to greet you in class, to cheer you on during a workout, to help out around the gym and at different social events - the list goes on! AJ is one of the hardest workers we know - from doubling up on hockey games and open workouts, to crushing hero WODS to show support and respect for those who have saved and given their lives for others, AJ will get it done!
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.
Geisa has been a member of 6S for just over 8 months. Ever since first joining, Geisa has committed to a regular routine and has embraced the challenge. She is a dedicated 7am-er and the whole crew notices when she is away! She is a ray of sunshine & brightens up the day with her infectious smile.
Geisa embodies the true spirit of CrossFit. She always brings her best effort and is always willing to learn. She is never shy to give stuff a try and she now confidently kicks up into handstands and is blasting runs in workouts!
Geisa is looking to tackle pull-ups and handstand push-ups next and with her spirit and determination we have no doubt this will happen soon!
Jenn has been with us for almost one year, and continues to surprise us daily with her dedication and goal-oriented personality. In addition to regularly attending CrossFit classes, Jenn runs, bikes and swims "for fun". And, a couple of weekends ago she raced in her first ever half Ironman Triathlon in Huntsville - what an incredible accomplishment! Jenn's strength and confidence is at an all-time high and we are so proud to see her flourish inside and outside of the gym! Not only is she competing in races that most of us will only dream of, but she is CRUSHING it in the gym - learning new skills, lifting new weights and challenging herself daily.
Jenn is adventurous, genuine and always walks into the gym with a smile on her face - what more could we ask for!?
Can we talk about #MOMSTRENGTH for a quick second!? Ilana is that and so much more!
Ilana has been a member of 6S for almost one year (1 yr anniversary is in November) and ever since she first joined, she has embodied our core values and stood out as a strong role model and team player. Ilana is a committed 6am-er who makes time for her workouts despite working full-time and raising her children. And she crushes every class she attends! Ilana always brings her best smile and effort, and we couldn't ask for more!
Nicole just passed her 3 year mark with us, and what an incredible journey it has been! 3 years ago, Nicole came to us with a willingness to try something new. As an avid runner and health advocate, Nicole wanted to challenge herself and improve her overall strength for daily tasks and for her running. And that's exactly what she has done!
In addition to maintaining a regular running schedule, Nicole attends the CrossFit group classes 2-3X/week. We're pretty sure the only weeks she hasn't come to the gym are when she is sick or on vacation. Otherwise, you can bet she will be in her 6:30pm evening class!
While there are so many accomplishments we can recall since Nicole first joined, there are two that stand out.
