July 2012 – Mary Abbruzzese (ACF)

We're pleased to announce Mary Abbruzzese as ACF's Member of the Month for July 2012!

Mary started her journey at CrossFit, a bit shy and reserved, cautiously taking the first step on what would become an awesome transformation.  Through relentless hard work, and a refusal to back to from obstacles in her way, she has truly shined during her tenure with us.

Fast forward to the present, and we see a more confident and assertive athlete and person.  She is a pleasure to have in class, as she will challenge herself when posed with the opportunity, and is always ready to learn from the coaches.  She was inspirational in her commitment during the 90 Day Challenge earlier this year, and is an amazing member of our CrossFit family.

She lives by the notion "growth through discomfort" and you can see that as she has taken on a new challenge, signing up for her first Strongman competition at Perth.  Add to that that she writes a fantastic blog chronicling her fitness quest (doubleunderdogs.com) and you could not ask for a better example of what it means to be Member of the Month, that upholds our values.  We are blessed to have her as part of this community and look forward to continued success in the future. Congratulations Mary!
