Congratulations to the March member of the Month: Mike Foran!
Mike joined CrossFit 1827 in January but has been CrossFitting longer than 99% of us at 1827! Since joining us this past January, Mike has made the committed club every single month, even for April when we have been closed. During the quarantine period Mike he has been consistently attending 4 Zoom classes each week plus stretch, yoga and gymnastics classes!
Mike recently retired so he has been lucky enough to come out to daytime classes (when we are open), and is a friendly, coachable athlete we all love to have in class! Being pretty handy, he has created a pretty nice garage gym set up for his home workouts as well. A homemade pull up bar and even parallettes can be found in Mikes garage to practice his handstands on. I hope to be doing handstands on parallettes when I am 60, impressive Mike! Mike also continues to support the gym through our period of closure and is lending his skills to repair and improve gym equipment during this time as well, like refinishing our boxes! Thanks for being an amazing member Mike, and hopefully we will have another decade of CrossFit together!
