I don’t normally like to blow up the trainers cause I like to focus on our members, BUT I must call attention to our very own ALow (real name is Amanda).  Recently I was going through her training log, without permission mind you, to see how much stronger she has gotten since she came back from her eight month trip to China last year.  This little human has increased every one of her lifts by 20 or more kilos, that’s 44lbs.  Some of those lifts were improved by that much just since January. For example:  her back squat this time last year was 55kg and now it is 86kg.  It’s truly amazing if you think of how little she is and how much weight she is able to move.  Those kind of improvements are a direct reflection of her commitment, trust, and hard work.   I think some of you only know her as she is now, the ALow that kills the WODs. I want you to take more from this than she is awesome, yay ALow.   I want you to realize she started where a lot of you are now.  Know that your goals are also attainable  with a plan and long-term commitment.   Congratulations ALow!
