What some of you had to say about Courtney!

I met Courtney at my first Olympic lifting fundamentals class. I was amazed by her strength and it motivated me to keep showing up to learn more about this sport. Although we do not have the same CrossFit schedule, I remember she is one of the athletes who encouraged me to transition from Bootcamp to CrossFit classes to which I was shy about. I am very grateful for that and I wish I could workout more often with her as she is always thoughtful and considerate when our paths meet in the locker room some mornings.

Courtney is the absolute best. She makes working out fun. I love her and all her dogs.

— Shana Mac

Courtney is always happy and cheery, even early in the morning! It is always fun to watch her lift more weight than she thought she would be able to. She is always cheering on others and just an all around pleasant and great staple at the 7 am. Well deserved!!

— Taylor Hayes

Omg, yessssss—it’s about time Courtney got the recognition she deserves! She’s such a badass, but only the 7am knows it. 😎 It’s always so fun to have Courtney in my class—she’s kind, super chill and puts up with all of my complaining. What’s more, she’s so strong (a lot more than she gives herself credit for!) and crushes every WOD she does. I’m thankful she was willing to be my partner/judge for most of the open, and I’m looking forward to seeing more from her in the 7am (and more pics of her dog family on Insta!). Congrats, Courtney!

Congratulations from the Coaches!

Quiet killer. Courtney might not always say much in class, but she makes up for that with her actions. She works diligently and pays attention to the small details which make big improvements. Keep it up!

— Wylie

It’s been such a pleasure watching you progress over the years, not only as a coach, but as a fellow athlete. A 7am staple, you show up to every class with no complaints, ready to listen, eager to learn and willing to put forth your best effort. What more can a coach want? Recently it’s been so fun watching you unlock new skills such as HSPU’S and PRing lifts left and right. Your clean this AM looked so easssssy! You are most definitely deserving of being our Member of the Month.

— Luis

Courtney is a 7 am monster. She’s an athlete that you can count on to do all the work to the maximum effort. She’s silly stealthy, and she’ll never boast about being a badass. But I will! Courtney will stare down the hardest workouts and go right at it with a no mercy attitude. It’s amazing to see her growth as an athlete over the years. Congrats, you deserve every bit of this acknowledgment.

— Tim

Courtney consistently, mostly silently, continues to work on her skills and technique while simultaneously taking note of and congratulating the achievements of others. She’s in this really cool place where she’s starting to achieve all the skills she’s been working on, and now she’s doing handstand push ups in a WOD, taking shots at clean PRs and completing some workouts RX’d. It’s really fun to watch her push herself, because she’s starting to believe that she can.

— Voz

YAY COURTNEY! Courtney is a great choice for MOTM— consistent, hard working, leads by example and by her unwavering kindness to all around her. Watching her progress over the years has been a privilege, and I’m proud to have her as part of our community.
