July Member of the Month

Our July Member of the Month needs no introduction. Perhaps you saw her strength and athleticism during the CrossFit Open. Or noticed her invitation to the CrossFit Games that was recently posted on the blog. This month we are honoring, Janet Rogers, who will be heading to Carson, California next week to battle it out head to head with the top twenty 60+ Masters Women in the world. She is currently ranked in 6th place worldwide (Masters Women 60+ Category).

What you may not know about Janet is that she hasn’t always been an athlete. She doesn’t have a long history of athletic achievements. What’s remarkable about this CrossFit Games competitor is that when she first started CrossFit a few years ago, she wasn’t even sure she’d be able to finish the workouts. Watch this video to learn more about Janet’s story, her passion for CrossFit, and what motivates her to compete and train at the highest levels.

Congratulations to our July Member of the Month, Janet Rogers!
