Congratulations to the January member of the Month: Krysia Bates!
Krysia joined 1827 this past summer as an experienced CrossFitter, and has been one of our most consistent members since. You might not have seen her around, unless you’re a notorious 7am’er like she is. At the age of 70, she’s admirable in the way she moves, knowing when to listen to her body and understanding her limits. She’s what we aspire to be at that age – and in truth, is a full representation of the longevity of health that CrossFit pushes for.
Beyond that, she always has the most positive attitude and support for those around her. She’ll even throw in a little comedic relief if you catch her on the right morning. During the open, she represented Team B L U E with the most spirit [including doing some of the scavenger hunt in her living room]. Be sure to drop by to a 7 a.m. whenever you’re able to meet this month’s M.O.M – she’ll be the first to same hello and cheer you on!
