Athlete Of the Month, Matt Hughes

I recently sat down with Matt and asked
him what originally brought him into our gym.
He had moved into our area and was looking
for a Crossfit gym specifically. We were the
first one he looked at but he liked it so much
he stayed. He enjoys being friends with a lot
of members here and he feels that the coaches
are more relatable than other coaches he’s
seen. He likes that our coaches generally
attend the group training and don’t “do their
own thing”.
When asked what his favorite movement
was he didn’t hesitate to say double unders. He
also really enjoys pullups. Thrusters are the
movement he enjoys the least. I really thought
he would say wall balls. I remember when he
first came here he told me hated the Open
workout that had wall balls and rowing.
Outside the gym, Matt is a big video
game nerd (in his own words) and he loves
anime.
A piece of advice he’d like to share with
new athletes just starting is to work hard,
don’t rush it and just trust the process.
Take a moment, if you see Matt around
the gym, to say hi and congratulate him on
being our Athlete of the Month. Great job,
