What some of you had to say about Marissa!
“Congratulations Marissa! Very deserved award…I’m just glad she won it so we can finally stop hearing her campaign for it non-stop!! :).
Marissa is the personification of “show don’t tell”. She’s so unassuming you sometimes don’t realize she’s at the workout until you see her lapping you in the metcon or posting some ridiculous score on the Whiteboard. And I’m not sure she actually ever gets tired or frustrated with a workout. When most people are writhing on the ground in pain afterwards, she’s smiling and looking like she’s ready to do a few more rounds.
Congratulations Marissa! You’ve done our Alma Mater proud!” – Kit
“Congrats Marissa! Marissa is an amazing member of the 4:30 class. She is always super nice and she is crazy strong. Marissa kills every workout and is always very humble about it. Much deserved, keep on being awesome! ” – Mike Popo
“Congratulations are in order for one of my favorite 4:30-ers, Marissa! Marissa is so unbelievably talented and powerful, but also the most humble. I like to refer to her as “sneaky strong”; she kills workout after workout but will never be heard bragging about it. Marissa can typically be found lifting a ton of weight and crushing any workout with running or pull-ups. Recently she’s started drawing a little bit of attention to herself with her scores (Fran leaderboard anyone?)…I am thrilled for her to finally have this spotlight because she deserves it. She is way stronger than she thinks she is, which makes it so exciting to watch her PR literally all of the time. Marissa has such a good heart and is one of the kindest, sweetest people out there. If you haven’t had a chance to meet Marissa yet please say hello and congratulate her on the MOTM win, you won’t regret it! I’d like to end this piece with one of my favorite quotes from Marissa. “I don’t feel like doing this anymore”-Marissa during any strength programming, who then goes and breaks an old PR :)” – Sara W.
