MEET ALBY ALMAREZ
Alby started doing CrossFit at CFP in September 2012.
” I had been very curious about CrossFit and had a friend back home who was constantly telling me to give it a shot, so one day after work I decided to stop by and see what it was all about and after my first few WOD’s (despite the fact that I was so sore I could barley move) I was hooked.”
“I feel like each WOD I complete I am accomplishing something new and setting new personal goals for myself.
“What I love the most about CrossFit are the moments when I feel like I don’t have anything left and I’m completely gassed but the motivation from my fellow athletes/coaches encouraging me helps me find the strength to complete that last rep!”
“I hate Hang Power Snatches and anytime I don’t have an RX besides my name after any WOD. (I think a lot of CrossFit athletes can feel you on this Alby!)
