December 2016 Tribe Members Of The Month:
Congratulations to Dan and Renee Mahle!
"Dan and Renee are fun-loving yet dedicated goal setters. Whether it's dressing up for a Halloween WOD, working towards a pull-up or box jump, modifying a WOD to fit in with race training, or squeeze in in a workout on the way to work, they always make their health and fitness a priority. These two are great examples for others to follow and very supportive to new members!"
Dan was the first to join the Total Reset and Warrior program in November 2012. His goal was to improve nutrition, weight loss, and overall fitness. Dan's hope was that the variation of the workouts along with the coach/class atmosphere would motivate him to include weightlifting into his running routine. After joining Dan lost a total of 30lbs, lowered his cholesterol, increased his strength, agility, cardio, and continues to improve in all aspects of fitness.
After seeing how enthusiastic Dan was about the program, Renee joined the Total Reset and Warrior Program in January 2013.Renee's initial goal were simple; to lose weight, tone up and be more disciplined in her diet. Not only did Renee achieve her initial goals, she set new ones! She quickly found out that she truly enjoyed throwing weights around and became addicted to the crossfit style of training. Renee found out from the blend of training along with expert instructions, she improved in all aspects of her fitness beyond any of the expectations she had before.
"Renee and Dan understand that to be successful, you always have to pay attention to the basics. Even though they have been in the program for years, they stay focused on the little things that help them succeed. Renee and Dan also are always there with a smile on their face to cheer others on! "
When asked what they enjoy most about the program Dan and Renee both agreed that the coaches and classmates are what they enjoy most about this program. They said in their own words that the combination of the coaches and classmates are the reason they have the constant motivation to come to class and work that much harder towards their own individual goals.
"Dan and Renee are extremely loyal,compassionate, and determined people! We love having them part of the tribe family! I always enjoy coaching Dan and Renee because they always have a goal that they continually strive for. Dan and Renee are a true inspiration!"
Dan said "JUST DO IT! If you commit to the Nutrition and Exercise Program, for most people, you will be in the best shape of your life. It may look intimidating but you will be supported by coaches and friendly classmates and in time, "Burpees, "The Murph", Sleds, Pull Ups, Box Jumps, Bear Crawls and Turkish Get Ups will become easier and part of your social vocabulary. They will still suck but at least you will appear to know what you are talking about at the water cooler."
Renee Said "Don't let your age or current physical condition hold you back. We all start as beginners and know what newcomers are feeling. We crawl out of bed in pain the morning after a hard workout just like you. Keep coming and working hard and you will get results. It's that simple."
