December 2011 – Jesse Lucier (ACF)

No better way to start 2012 then to highlight an amazing athlete that made huge strides all throughout 2011.  Congratulations to Jesse as our December 2011 Member of the Month for Albany CrossFit!


I remember running his free trial, and subsequently teaching his Elements classes (yeah those were the good ol’ days).  You could see the potential.  Motivated, athletic, and ready for a challenge.  Jesse was ready to take on everything CrossFit had to offer.

Diet? Started Paleo Day 1.  He didn’t have much to change, but it was impressive none the less. People often say that they can easily go strict or just go cold-turkey immediately; he actually lived up to his words.

Consistent? You bet. Whether he’s crushing WODs or doing strength or hitting skills, he’s not making excuses for not getting in.

Constantly improving? Absolutely.  Watch any of his recent performances or any benchmark workouts.  The results speak for themselves.

He’s in the competitions, from the Fall Face-off to the Strongman. He doesn’t back down from putting his skills on the line.  Quickly becoming one of the top athletes in the gym, and has worked his ass off to get to this point.

Throw in the fact that he’s a great guy and a great part of this community as he is always willing to help with events.  We’re happy to have him as a member and hope to continue to watch his hard work lead to even more success. The sky is the limit for him.
