It Never Gets Old

Today, in the 5:30am indoor class at RunTex, we hit the benchmark WOD, "Chelsea". In preparation for the movement standards of this WOD, everyone gives each of the exercises a try. One athlete, in particular, took advantage of the opportunity and thought that she would attempt an unassisted kipping pullup....SHE GOT IT!

This was her first unassisted pullup! This is a huge accomplishment for any CrossFitter! Her achievement was quickly noticed by all of her peers in the class, and high-fives and applause followed. The feeling in room was electric. Gotta love it!

Experiences like this never get old....This is why I am a CrossFit coach!

Congratulations, Melissa!

    I'm looking forward to hittin' a WOD with you guys too. Let's make it happen ASAP!
