Athlete of the Month

APRIL athlete of the month: ALICE STEMBRIDGE

Alice is an absolute pocket rocket! She always prioritises her technique and maintaining consistency with her training. Over the last two years, our coaching team have thoroughly enjoyed watching her build upon her foundation in each WOD. Alice is also such a great contributor to the Athletic Zone community, as her fellow athletes would have noticed in the recent CrossFit Open. Alice was at each event supporting all participants and assisting with judging where necessary.

Congratulations Alice!
