Athlete of the Month: Erik Gary

Coach's Remarks: I have worked with Erik for over a year now. When he first started with me, I had doubts about his ability to become a solid weightlifter, but over the past year he has developed into a very capable weightlifter from his technique, to his strength, to his organization and work effort. Nice work Erik!One thing Erik does better than anyone else I coach is thoroughly reporting his progress and weights lifted for every single week. Erik is an Engineer by degree so this is very fitting, my only other athlete who comes close to Erik is an accountant so that would be fitting also!

Most exciting moment so far in weightlifting/CrossFit: Going 6/6 in my second meet (first one that I actually trained for). After that I really began to think I could become a solid Weightlifting athlete.
