Terry and Aimee Preston | CrossFitters of the Month

Congrats Terry and Aimee on being our next CrossFitters of the Month From the Trainers: "Proud of the Preston family as our CrossFitters of the month. I enjoy working with all of them and their dedication to healthy family living is inspiring. Keep it up!"-Doug "I Love having Terry and Aimee in class. They both come in ready to attack a workout and use the time almost as a date for the two of them. They work hard and enjoy their hour here. I appreciate their dedication to technique and listening to their body when scaling may be needed. Lastly TP and Aimee set a great example for their three kiddos, two of which we have the pleasure of training. The boys work hard and want to get technique down (as well as get gainzzzz!) Great job Preston family! Keep it up." -Kenzie "It is awesome that Aimee continues use her amazing athletic background to crush the workouts and Terry continues to strive for the mediocrity that most former basketball players try to achieve....haha!. On a more serious note they are both great to have in the gym and are a lot of fun to be around. It is great that they have made fitness a family affair and they do an amazing job of leading by example for their kids." -Eric "The Preston family is awesome! From the dedication they show from parents to kids they are well deserving for CrossFit couple of the month. So cool to see their commitment to a healthy lifestyle have such a positive effect on their kids. Plus, I can pawn my Reebok gear off on them since no one else is my size." -Chris "Congrats to the Preston's on being this months CrossFitters of the month. Amy and Terry are great and it's always fun seeing them in the gym. They are very hard working in and out of the gym and it definitely shows even during the toughest of WODs. They've always made great improvements and have achieved incredible feats in the gym. I always love seeing them partner up on every partner WOD as husband and wife ready to take down and couple who oppose them! Of course it's all in good fun! Even their young ones are on the rise in the gym so watch out for those younger Preston's and the next generation. Keep up the great work…

I actually appreciate the humor and the joking from Brad, especially at 5:15 am. He has made huge gains in his overall fitness since joining the gym that is due to his consistency, hard work, and working on the technique of the movements. It is awesome that he has found some pretty cool ways to use his fitness outside of the gym as well. Congrats Brad! Keep up the good work" Eric "Great to see Brad up as CrossFitter of the month!

Kris Dougherty | CrossFitter of the Month

Congrats Kris on being our next CrossFitter of the Month From the Trainers "When Kris first came to CFPC I honestly didn't know if she was going to stick with it or not.....not because the workouts were too hard or anything but because she came from an endurance background and I think she was probably a bit skeptical and hesitant at first. I am really glad she chose to stick around! She has been consistent, works hard and is just a ton of fun to be around. I appreciate that she doesn't complain and she just puts forth a good effort all the time. Keep up the great work Kris"- Eric "Good to see Kris still loving it and continuing to work hard after all the years she's been with us. She's always dedicated to showing up and getting her workout in, but the best part is she is always smiling and having a good time. No matter how crazy the workout is she's always there cracking jokes and bringing in the humor at the right time. Always count her in to be there with her 5:30 peeps and cheering one another on until the end! Nice work Kris! "- Ryan "Kris is the quiet and dedicated one in the gym. A true runner that has taken on CrossFit for a well rounded base. It's been great to see her improvements over the years and a pleasure to have her in class. Always listening and working hard. "- Chris "Kris was one of the first people I met at CrossFit Park City! She set the example of consistency, determination and hard work. She has been a role model for me since! I appreciate having her in class as she brings a fun & positive attitude to the 5:30pm classes. Way to go Kris!" -Kenzie From Kris: First of all let me start by thanking Chris, Doug, Eric, Kenzie, and Ryan for this! I’m humbled that you guys would nominate me, Thank-you! I was born in St. Augustine, Florida. My Dad’s job moved us to Salt Lake City when I was 8. I moved back and forth from SLC to Florida a few times and ended up settling in Salt Lake.

Mikelle and Riley | CrossFitters of the Month

Congrats Mikelle and Riley on being our next CrossFitter's of the Month From the Trainers "I haven't yet had the pleasure of working with Riley or Mikelle personally, but after watching their performances in the Open I can say our next generation has a bright and strong future. These two were awesome to watch not only because of their performances, but also because of their motivation and encouragement they expressed for one another. They were always there to cheer one another on and push themselves to new height and new limits. Keep training hard and smart girls cause you have a bright future ahead of you! Oh and for Mikelle, GO UTES!"- Ryan "Riley and Mikelle are the future of CrossFit Park City! They both showed great determination and support of one another and their peers throughout the open. It's refreshing to see kids that are embracing a whole new lifestyle of fitness and hard work. Congrats to the two of you. It was inspiring to watch you work!" - Chris "I nominated Riley Weldon and Mikelle Losee for our Crossfitters of the Month after witnessing amazing strength and determination during the 2015 CF Open. Both girls were exposed to movements we have not done in our teens class and tackled them with grace! I have the privilege of working with the girls in our Teens class and am always impressed by their work ethic. They come in excited and are determined improve their skills. Recently Mikelle Clean & Jerked 100 pounds and Riley got her first Handstand pushup! How cool is that? These girls are on their way to great things! Congrats ladies!"- Kenzie "It have been great getting to coach Mikelle and Riley in the teen class. Not only have I gotten to see them grow with their physical performances but I have also seen them grow into awesome young adults that are just great to be around. I think they have both found that they are much more physically capable than they thought was possible before and challenging themselves by participating in the Open helped them to realized this more as I saw them do things they previously had not done and push themselves to levels that they perhaps had not gone to before. I'm really proud of you guys for more than just participating in Open but for your effort all the time, for your attitudes,…

Nathalie Pepito |CrossFitter of the Month

Congrats Nat on being our next CrossFitter of the Month From the Trainers: "Nat has been doing an amazing job the last couple of months by putting extra focus on her nutrition and by taking extra time to focus on technique by utilizing skills sessions. It has been awesome to see her hit a lot of "firsts" the last couple of months due to this effort and I love to see when hard work pays off! She also does an amazing job of dancing to Michael Jacksons song "Thriller", the choreography and the moves are on point!!" -Eric "Always great to see Nat in the class setting.

Well done on the paleo challenge, your consistency in the gym, and your great attitude. It has paid off without a doubt. " -Chris "Nat Pepito embodies the term CrossFitter of the month, if not Year! You can find her in programmed class, Open gym, OPEN prep class, and taking advantage of personal trainings! She has such a drive to improve her technique and she works on it endlessly. Most recently she tackled the PALEO challenge and the results paid off! She looks great and feels great. Way to go Nat p!" -Kenzie "Nat is awesome!

Her dedication to her diet has given her a huge boost and she's setting new PR's every week! Awesome Nat!" -Doug "Nat is the definition of the term 'Attack your weaknesses.' She has worked so hard in every class, every prep class, barbell class, one on ones, you name it she has done it to improve her overall fitness. Her improvement in and out of the gym has been as awesome as it is inspiring! Always brings energy to the class and is always willing to get comfortable with the uncomfortable. No matter the workout, movement, or scheme of things Nat will always be there. Great Job Nat!" -Ryan From Nat: Who is Momma Pepito?

Wanye Hall |CrossFitter of the Month

Congrats Wayne on being our next CrossFitter of the Month From the Coaches: "Wayne is great to have in the gym. He asks good questions of the particularities of the movements to further his understanding and has a fun demeanor to him. He has been consistent and does not cherry pick the WODs, even if they are workouts that contain a bit of running. I heard a while back that he went to a competition to support our gym members he ended up participating in the competition on the spot to help out the team when one of the team members could not finish......that is just plain cool"- Eric "Love seeing Wayne in the gym. He is the quiet beast. Although he already moves well he takes the time to listen to the coaches and improve during the instruction portion of the class. You can also find him making use of open gym hours working on Olympic lifting which is always bonus points in my book. Great attitude and supports those around him in workouts, team or individual. Guys like Wayne make my job easy as a coach."- Chris "Wayne likes to keep a low profile at the gym and while he is lifting an insane amount of weight he hates to draw attention to his successes in the gym. Although heavy lifting is his strong suit he continues to work on his endurance and takes advantage of open gym hours to improve his skills. I love having Wayne in class because he's quick to crack a joke and is appreciative of trainer feedback. I also nominate Wanye because he jumped in when we needed someone during the Lululemon throwdown a few months back. Well deserved Wanye!!!"-Kenzie "Wayne is great to have in the gym! I’ve gotten to know him a bit more and he’s great to be around, easy going, fun, and funny. He works hard in the gym and I love to see him push his limits with the Olympic lifts. Congrats Wayne!!!"-Doug "I'm super pumped to have Wayne as a member of our gym and our community. His love for Olympic lifts and throwing around heavy barbells always keeps him coming back for more during any open gym time. He also shows up and does a workout he doesn't want any part of just because he knows it will further improve his skills. With all the support…

"- Ryan R "Doug V has been a member at CFPC for 3 years and I can honestly say he is one of the most consistent members.

Kim Losee | CrossFitter of the Month

Congrats Kim on being our next CrossFitter of the Month From the Trainers "I nominate Kim L. for CrossFitter of the month for her consistently positive attitude and smile during class.
