Athlete of the Month

Rachelle Richards

This months Athlete of the Month is one of those crazy 5:17am-ers who crushes her WOD before most of our morning alarms go off. Rachelle is quiet, hard-working, consistent and one of the most down to earth people you'll meet. She is always willing to judge or volunteer at any of our events and you can always count on hearing her in the crowd supporting our athletes at competitions. Rachelle's consistency and dedication have helped her achieve some pretty big milestones including her first rope climb and a recent clean PR.
