CFHY October Athlete of the Month: Carrie Glenn

The CrossFit Hyannis Athlete of the Month for October is Carrie Glenn.  Carrie has been on an absolute tear* lately- and the exciting thing is it’s clear that she is just getting started.

Carrie has always been Strong (yes that’s Strong with a capital “S”), in fact last year she spent several months focusing exclusively on powerlifting while doing minimal cardio and metcons.  Now that she is fully back into training with CrossFit, her strength has continued to increase along with her performances on metcons and her capacity at gymnastics skills.

Carrie decided to really focus on her nutrition during the gym’s nutrition challenge and absolutely crushed it- losing 16 pounds.  So many people say they are going to do something but falter when it comes time for the follow through- but Carrie has shown that when she commits to something she goes all in and does what she says she’s going to do.  Many people worry that if they lose weight they will “lose all their strength” but Carrie demonstrated that when you fuel your body appropriately this doesn’t have to be the case- she PR’d all of her lifts but one over the last month, in addition to hitting PRs on all gymnastics movements she tested and metcons.  She hit more PRs during “testing month” than anyone else in the gym- all while losing some serious weight.  This is a testament to her commitment to properly fueling her body, having a positive mindset, and her dedicated training.

As we know, however, hitting PRs isn’t what it’s all about.  Carrie also embodies the spirit of CrossFit Hyannis- always encouraging those around her, being a positive presence in the gym, and going out of her way to offer assistance to those who need it.  For these reasons and her example of how to embrace the philosophy of working at being “better every day” Carrie Glenn is the CFHY October Athlete of the Month.

*On a tear is defined as: “On a streak or series, usually a winning streak.” See also: Carrie Glenn.
