Cody has been a member of CrossFit Winnipeg since 2010 and has come far in regards to her health and fitness. The coaches here at CFW would like to recognize Cody’s achievements throughout the years and also to recognize her current feats.
Cody realizes what it takes to have harmony in her life and she has used CrossFit as a tool to embrace just that. She recognizes that she must enjoy the ride, not be impatience & welcome each new accomplishment with personal pride. Cody knows her goals will be achieved by focusing in, exerting the most energy she can each and every day she walks into these doors. These qualities make Cody stand out and enable her to achieve big PR’s, as recently seen on her snatch and her muscle ups!
A note from Coach Helena Inaloz and the rest of the coaching staff to Cody, “In short I have been very proud of her latest achievements in Crossfit”.
Congratulations Cody! We all are very excited to celebrate how far you’ve come, maybe we can do that over pizza and beer?
