Consistency is key. If you want to make progress, and if you want to propel yourself in to the upper echelon of athletes, there is no substitute. Ryan, or “OI” as we have all come to know him, has shown this element of consistency as well as anyone, in his pursuit of greater athleticism and fitness.
OI started off at Albany CrossFit, and is now a staple figure at CrossFit Clifton Park. You can rest assured that you’ll find him hitting the WOD, working skills, or taking care of his recovery at least five times per week. If you’ve watched him lift, you can see the huge strength gains he’s made, including a monster deadlift, that rivals the best at both gyms. Now he’s hammering away at his gymnastics movements, trying to leave no stone unturned.
He has the competitive itch, as you could see him at the past weekend’s Face-off, giving his all for his team, and he always steps up big time at each of the Competitor Program throw-downs. A spot on the Affiliate Team is in his sites, and it will be tough knock him out of contention the way he’s been performing. Congrats OI! You’ve certainly earned this Member of the Month honors, and we look to see big things from you when the CrossFit Open rolls around and beyond.

We had to a choice this month between 5 really good candidates for Member of the Month.
-An above-average athlete who has changed their diet and made big changes in their body through CrossFit.
-Someone who competed in our In-House competition a few months back, brought home some hardware and has been killing it ever since.
-A member who has helped us tremendously behind the scenes with multiple events over the past year, including helping us to plan our first Winter Formal on Feb 18th of this coming year.
-A morning athlete who is more consistent than anyone and as important part of others experience at CrossFit as the coaches are at times.
-A person who has referred countless members to ACF/CCP and continues to “Preach the Gospel” everywhere they go.
Who would you go with? It was a tough decision, but in the end…We choose Stacy Jubert because she represents all 5 in one! If you don’t come in to the 7am or 9am class often, you may not know Stacy. Those who know her, love her. Her and her husband Guy have been CrossFitting with us for about a year, and they have both made tremendous strides. On top of all the energy and excitement Stacy brings in the morning, she has worked countless hours behind the scenes for us at Trade Shows and has host 2 “Bridal Wars” at our gym with a third coming this winter!
Stacy’s performance took a sharp turn for the better when she changed her diet, and finally said no to Diet Soda! She lost weight from two pregnancies, and looks fantastic. She has begun hitting many WODs as prescribed, and will need to take home a trophy from the Rx division if she wants one from the next In-House!
I have coached Stacy since the first day she came into ACF, and I have seen her grow so much as a CrossFitter. I am so proud every time I see her hit a WOD Rx or help a new athlete with technique. She has become an absolutely integral part of our community. I can promise, each of you have been affected in one way or another by the work she has done for us.
Stacy, you have certainly earned Member of the Month. Enjoy your reign, I look forward to seeing you grow even further in the future. If you see Stacy, congratulate her and let her know how much you appreciate what she does for your gym!

Dana came in soft-spoken, quiet, and of course adorable. She was very much intimidated by CrossFit. We see this all the time. Unsure of themselves…”I can’t do pullups…can I CrossFit?”…”I can’t lift that much weight!” It took some convincing from Caleb and the rest of the coaches…, “you can do this” and slowly but surely Dana truly started to believe and see…not only CAN she do this crazy thing called CrossFit she was kicking it’s A$$!
Dana has exemplified what it means to be a CrossFitter. You will regularly see her working her weaknesses. What an amazing experience to see her go from 0 Pullups in one week to 9 in a row the next week.
Nutrition? Dialed in! Dana prepares and it shows. She is Paleo and Zone and it is paying humongous dividends. Have you seen her before and after picture? Hello!!!
Challenging herself? Dana joined our Competitors program and infamously earned her nickname “Spillz” on the buddy carry WOD. Heading out of the gate at a furious pace she fell but bounced right back up and immediately got back into the competition. There is no crying in CrossFit…and Dana proved it!
It’s been an absolute pleasure to watch Dana become an incredible CrossFitter. Dana is living proof that hard work, determination, and perseverance pays off and we are proud to announce her as our September 2011 Member of the Month!

Announcing CrossFit Clifton Park’s September Member of the Month: Joel!
Joel has been a faithful CCP devotee since we opened the doors to the new facility, and has quickly become one of the most impressive athletes in the gym. He has certainly put in the time.
He shows up super early, gets in some mobility and stretching everyday, and always throws in some skill work. After giving it his all in the WOD, he might hit more skill work and top it off with more foam rolling. He’s also made huge strides to clean up his diet. Joel’s hard work has payed off as he stepped up his game, jumped in to the Competitor’s Program and had a monster performance in his first showing, topped by a PR Rack Jerk of 285!
Not to mention that he has become an integral part of the CCP community. Always ready to lend a hand building equipment, or you can see him stay late and hang out with Murph to close up. Joel is a great guy and fully deserves this honor as September’s Member of the Month. Be on the watch for him as a force to be reckoned with come competition time!
