Congrats to our June Athlete of the Month, Mandy Gitt!
Mandy has been with True Core almost since the doors first opened. Every time she walks in the door she does so with a smile, laughter, and general great attitude. We have always noticed Mandy’s determination and hard work, however, it has been the last 6+ months that she has really blow us away! Mandy has continued to workout several times a week through her pregnancy, and never seems to quit. She completes each workout, with modifications when needed, and listens to her body on what she needs to be doing. Mandy is an inspiration to every other member in class, showing that we can all do CrossFit even 8 months pregnant! No to mention her AMAZING deadlift strength that constantly blows the coaches away! Congrats Mandy! We feel so lucky to have you a part of our community! True Core wouldn’t be the same without you!
