CFHY June Athlete of the Month: The Honorable Susan!

The CrossFit Hyannis Athlete of the Month for June 2017 is The Honorable Susan Sard Tierney.  It’s hard to know where to begin in describing Susan and what she brings to CrossFIt Hyannis and those around her, as her impact on this place has been profound.

For those of you who don’t know Susan recently was confirmed as a judge in Suffolk County and is being sent to Worcester for her duties.  Although this means we will be seeing less of her, we couldn’t be more proud of and happy for her and all that she has accomplished.  For anyone that knows Susan it comes as no surprise that the two-year process of becoming a judge ended in her new appointment- as she is one of the most committed, determined, and honest people around.

For the last several years Susan has been one of the rocks of the CrossFit Hyannis community.  She is here everyday Monday-Friday, no matter the workout, the weather, or the situation.  Susan would never, ever, not even for a moment consider “cherry-picking” a workout she didn’t like- it is not in her nature to avoid hard or challenging things.  Rather, she shows up ready to do work and attack her weaknesses head on – knowing it will only strengthen her in the long run.  As a coach, having Susan in class is always a pleasure and a relief- no matter what happens, I know that Susan has my back and will bring a positive energy to the class.  She’ll welcome new people, help the stragglers, and give her best effort.

Susan has been a model of consistency over the years.  She does what she can, when she can- and understands the bedrock concept of using CrossFit as lifelong fitness commitment.  It’s not about a PR on one day, a few months off because life got busy, and coming back to start over- it’s about making it a part of your life even when it isn’t easy because you value your health and wellness.

Susan embraces life with a steady head, dogged persistence, and a positive attitude.  We are so excited for her as she embarks on this new part of her life, and are proud to call her the CrossFit Hyannis Athlete of the Month!
