Our athlete of the month for June is Jen Cioffi! They say that you are the sum of your repeated habits and we feel like Jen embodies that saying – she is consistent in her fitness and makes time for the gym every day. Her hard work pays off because we’ve seen so much progress in Jen over the years – she began as personal training client because she didn’t think she could do CrossFit, added in some Shred classes, finally ventured into CrossFit and hasn’t looked back since! Plus she brings Kaia, her Bernese Mountain Dog to the gym and Kaia has become something of a gym mascot. Keep up the good work Jen and thanks for sharing Kaia with us!

WHAT KEEPS YOU COMING BACK TO LWCF: CrossFit is my therapy. It keeps me grounded.
FAVORITE WOD: Murph is my favorite WOD not only because it pushes me mentally and physically, but I love how the CrossFit community comes together every year and does it together.
