March Member of the Month

March Member of the Month

What are some traits that describe an outstanding team player?

1. Commits day after day.
2. Makes good progress.
3. Enthusiasm and Perseverance

All of these qualities apply to our Member of the Month for March.  Most importantly, he happens to be one of the nicest, hard working guys we know. While it looks like he’s always known how to snatch a ton of weight and squat super heavy, he has struggled with workouts and movements just like everyone else.  His rate of improvement over the course of last year has dramatically increased, given his obvious commitment to the CFNYC Competition class.

He follows directions in class, will offer words of encouragement to everyone, and continually works on his weaknesses. (Even if it doesn’t seem like he has many!) He also may be part ninja, we’re not sure. He was part of last year’s Regionals Team, but has also represented CFNYC at various local and regional level competitions. As this “Member of the Month” is being honored during the CrossFit Open, it seems fitting that we choose a true competitor.

It’s our pleasure to introduce you all to our March Member of the Month: Rob Keefe!

    I wish there was more in this video about the importance of T Swift in his lifting routine, but I guess its pretty cool as is 🙂

  • BenFund (Hobie’s Dad)

    I borrowed Rob’s jump rope once and immediately became proficient at triple-unders. It was awesome. Great teammate and a great guy. Plus, Hobie LOVES him.

    Congrats, Rob!! What a great video! Rob was such a friendly and welcoming member when I started on the competition team this past summer and continues to be so today! I can’t think of anyone who deserves this more!

  • Tarek M

    This is great. I actually know next to nothing about the competition team that represents our box and would love to know much more. More member profiles would be awesome and even just knowing some of their stats like # of members, average age, average # of years Crossfittng, maybe even average benchmark WOD times. Would all be very interesting to know

  • Jameson Jordan
