November: Athlete of the Month
CrossFit SolaFide’s Athlete of the Month for November is Heather Powell!
My name is Heather Powell and I am 36. I was born and raised in Clarksville, TN. My husband, Toby and I have been married for 16 years and weÂ have two children. Our son, Jameston is 11 years old andÂ our daughter, Madelynn is 9.
I began Crossfit in June of 2012 after encouragement from a great friend. I signed up for On Ramp during the “Murph” Memorial WOD… WOW! I didnâ€™t know if I could even do Crossfit after seeing that work out! It scared me but it also motivated me.Â I was over weight and IÂ had let my health get out of control. I knew I needed something to help me and CrossfitÂ turned out to beÂ just the thing!
Joining Crossfit Solafide has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have lost over 35 lbs and I feel great! I have more energy to keep up with my two kids and our busy schedule. I can do things now that I never thought I would be able to do! I feel Strong!! I now have confidence to set and to achieve my goals. I have made some wonderful friends who are always there to encourage and support me.
I am very blessed to be a part of Crossfit Solafide and I am forever grateful!!!
