CrossFit Sioux Falls – Athlete of the Week

CrossFit Sioux Falls Athlete of the Week - Jason Ricke

I can’t let camera malfunctions in our attempt to get the “in CrossFit action superman” photoshot hold this post off any longer, so with anticipation mounting….

Shout outs to Jason Ricke for AOW at CrossFit Sioux Falls.

(via Browny)…
The first time I saw Jason I was getting ready to coach an evening class. Casey was explaining the requirements for the baseline test. Soon after completing the baseline Jason had the look of complete exhaustion that we have all experienced…you know the feeling when you are looking around to find either the door or a trash can…just in case.

Since that first day Jason has worked extremely hard and completes the tasks in the WOD without excuses or complaints. His positive attitude is a great addition to the class and his potential for growth in CrossFit is limitless. He adopted better nutrition habits and has embraced the Paleo lifestyle. The hard work and dedication has helped him drop close to 20 pounds since starting just a few months ago.

Awesome work! Keep representing the 630pm crew, Jason!

Show him some love in the comments…
