October 2022 Member Spotlight
Member Spotlight for October 2022 is Colin Jensen!
Colin is 46 years old and has been doing CrossFit for the past five years. Colin decided to give CrossFit a try when a friend from high school, who Colin texts daily, sent him a pair of CrossFit shoes. After coming to the conclusion that CrossFit is the gold standard for achieving fitness, he went searching for a gym. We are blessed that Colin decided CrossFit Tyler would be his home.
What inspires us about Colin is his commitment to just show up. Colin currently has a streak of over 600 days in a row of attending classes! When asked what keeps him coming in, especially on days when he doesn't have the motivation, Colin replied, "I've chosen to quit choosing." Colin shows up, even when he doesn't want to, and that dedication is unmatched.
The coaching at CrossFit Tyler is what Colin mentions when he encourages people to try it out, possibly for the first time ever. He said, "Coach Amy really digs accommodating people [to help them in their workouts], and Brittany is an elementary school teacher and Scott is a therapist- both of which really convey that it's a nurturing, accepting place."
At CrossFit Tyler we view our community as family, and we're glad Colin knows he is home with us. We are proud and inspired by you, Colin Jensen!
