Kid Athlete of the Month

The CrossFit experience is about community. As crossfitters we know the benefits of living healthy and training with a group of people committed to improving their performance, crushing WODs and conquering the infamous “Goats” that nag at us. But what I think is most important is that we do this together and create a bond in the achievements and set backs of every WOD we finish. Our KID athlete of the month is only in 2nd grade and she is going in the record book as our youngest athlete at CrossFit Boston! She came to us from CrossFit Stamford in September. I wasn’t going to have a Lil’ Pups program but her dedication made an impression and motivated me to open the kids program to younger athletes. Her dad Isa is a CrossFit enthusiast and is a member of Crossfit City Line. Thank you for bringing Maya to CrossFit Boston!

In Maya’s WORDS:

I first started doing crossfit in Stamford, CT in June of 2012. I had two other friends in my first class, Sophia and Page. Our coaches, Melissa and Claudia, designed special WODs for us.  After we moved to Newton, my dad found CrossFit Boston Iron & Grit and I started crossfitting with Tina in September and I have been working with her.

Since I started crossfitting I became a better and faster skier, and stronger too.  My dad says that I gained a lot of self-confidence. My favorite move is skin the cat. And I also workout at CrossFit City Line with Jenna and Mat. I really like CrossFit.

Every new kid I have the opportunity to coach brings to our community a new perspective. Ashley is a young lady who at 10 years old is already competing in triathlons and is a [...]
