Stronghold Pride – Athlete of the Month: February 2017 : Yakieya Griffin

A post shared by CrossFit Stronghold San Diego (@crossfitstrongholdsd) on

Yakieya REALLY loved today’s workout! 😃

In other news… better late than never! Meant to post this on the first of the month like we usually do, but I wanted to get an updated video of this lady in action… But then her husband had to go out of town for work and she couldn’t come in for a week and a half. 😔

Anyway…what a difference a month makes! Yakieya came into the gym just before the new year and she STRUGGLED with burpees. Actually, the first couple weeks were pretty rough in general. She will tell you with great flair how annihilated she got every time she came to class. One night in particular, I remember thinking, “man… she’s never gonna come back.” But she showed up the next day and kept coming day after day after that. We are so glad she did. This lady is like a Timex. She takes a licking and keeps on ticking. But more than that, she has such an amazing attitude and is a joy to have around. She works hard and it has been amazing watching her progress.

I wish I had taken video of her when she started to show a comparison. This is lightening fast compared to when she first started. I’m really looking forward to seeing her future progress.

Please join me in honoring CrossFit Stronghold’s February 2017 Athlete of the Month, Yakieya Griffin .
