CFHY Athlete of the Month: The Barrons!

The CrossFit Hyannis Athlete of the Month for January 2020 is Jacob Barron, along with his parents Nick and Lindsay.  Born December 28th at a beefy 6 pounds 7 ounces it was immediately evident that he was going to be the true athlete and stud of the family.  Credit should be given to his mom and dad, also members at CrossFit Hyannis. Both Nick and Lindsay have been members at CFHY for years, and their dedication to their fitness and each other is clear.  They always come in with great attitudes and bring awesome energy to the gym. Lindsay worked out smartly and safely throughout her pregnancy- knowing how it important it was to take care of her own health while pregnant.  She even claimed that all that CrossFit made giving birth easier- glad we could help! Lindsay is truly an amazing example to all of us on how to prioritize our own health and wellness so that we can best take care of those around us.  It was awesome to see her at CFHY throughout her pregnancy and right back at it post-baby. And right out of the gate it is already clear that Nick is going to be a great dad and show Jacob how to develop true strength- of body, mind, and character.  We are lucky to have both Nick and Lindsay as part of our CrossFit Hyannis family and we’re happy to welcome Jacob, the newest edition to their family, to ours as well. Keep up the great work Barrons- and thanks for making CFHY part of your lives!

CFHY October Athlete of the Month: Meghan Green

The CrossFit Hyannis Athlete of the Month for October is Meghan Green.  Meghan is a committed member of the 5:30am class, but can also be seen in evening classes if she can’t make it in the morning.  No matter the class Meghan always comes in with a great attitude and lifts up those around her. In all of her time at the gym she has not been heard complaining once.  Literally not once. It’s so easy to come in and start listing reasons that things are hard- being overtired, overworked, your sore, the workout has things you don’t like, etc.  But Meghan has found a way in her daily life to always see the positive and never let the day to day grind get her down. She works hard, tries new things, and embraces challenges.  We’re lucky to have her at CrossFit Hyannis and grateful for the positive energy she brings every day!

CFHY Athlete of the Month September- Sean Parrent!

The CrossFIt Hyannis Athlete of the Month for September is Sean Parrent.  Sean brings his youth, enthusiasm, work ethic, and good vibes to the gym every time he is there and we’re lucky he has made CrossFit Hyannis part of his training regime.  From the first time Sean attended class at CFHY with his dad, he has always been extremely coachable- he listens, absorbs information, and is always seeking more feedback to help him improve.  He recognizes that the only way to get better is put in time, learn the right way, and show up and get to work. It’s amazing to see how Sean has progressed in his relatively short time here- he is strong, has a great engine, and is always willing to learn new skills while accepting that it takes time to accomplish mastery .  Sean worked hard all summer and it has showed in his cross country season- where he is leading his team and crushing his competition. We are so proud of Sean and all of his accomplishments because we’ve seen his work ethic and his dedication to the process. Keep up the great work Sean, we’re all rooting for you and excited to see what your future brings!

CFHY Athlete of the Month: Pablo!

The CrossFit Hyannis Athlete of the Month for July is Pablo Martinez.  Pablo is an animal, there’s just no other way to say it. Pablo has been a member of CFHY since literally day one and since the very beginning he has not only put his full effort forth every day at the gym- he has also done so much for our community and gym and is always willing to lend a hand.  As you likely know, Pablo was instrumental in getting our new location ready- but it’s hard to put into words just how much he did. Over the last two months he has been working extremely long days- often working past midnight then coming to the 5:30am class in the morning and crushing it (and probably beating you, whoever you are reading this- no offense).  When it was pointed out that he could sleep in if he wanted to he replied how important it is to stay in the routine of getting up, because once you break that routine it can be hard to get back into it. So wise. From an athletic perspective, Pablo proves that hard work and tenacity can bring you a long way. No matter the workout Pablo brings his A game and pushes those around him, and always cheers on and supports those working around him.  He’s also been known to tack on some extra miles to make sure that no one has to run alone at the end of a workout. What a good guy. It’s easy to see Pablo as just a bodyweight/gymnastics ninja, but what’s really impressive is how strong he is particularly for his bodyweight. A huge thanks to Pablo for all he’s done for the CrossFit Hyannis community over the years!
