Our June members of the month, CrossFit Kids superstars Gavin and Ava OConnell! This brother and sister duo have been such a joy to coach. They started with us about 5 months ago and have made huge improvements. Gavin is respectful and such a great listener, I can always count on him to introduce himself to the new kids and to help out with anything I need. He works hard and smart and is one strong dude. Ava is our little firecracker, from the moment she walks (runs) into the gym she is the life of the party, she has stories and there is never a dull moment. She is competitive and persistent and it shows with how much she has improved with her squats and jump rope. We are so thankful for these two and for their parents for letting them be apart of our gym. I can’t wait to see you both improve over time!
