Ben is one of our superstar Teen Athletes. With a busy schedule he manages to get to classes multiple times a week and brings such a positive vibe with him. Ben started CrossFit with a push from his parents, but has stuck with it and excelled within the last year. His movement patterns and core strength have improved greatly! We love how Ben always finishes his workout with a huge smile and is always eager to learn more. We are so proud of you Ben and we cant thank you enough for letting us be apart of your life!
