This week I want to honor an awesome lady who came to UB a humble CrossFit vet. You may see her in class diligently working on her Oly form. You may see her in the back room helping us brushing barbells (she's a fantastic member of our cleaning crew). But you will definitely see her PRing all over the place class. This sassy drink of water has been stepping up her game... and it shows! If you have yet to meet our lady of the week, (she may strike you as shy -- don't be fooled) take a moment to give her a high five. Coryn is straight awesome!

What is an unexpected way CrossFit has affected your life? Confidence. When I was stressed out about the bar exam, I had a mentor tell me "If you can do Murph, you can definitely pass the bar" and he was right :)
