AOTM: “Everything Has Changed” with Sean Tedio

From the Coaches Sean is one of our Rise and Grind athletes and always has a refreshing smile on even when he’s fresh out of bed at 5AM. He has always been eager to learn and because of that has seen tremendous progress. One of his most recent milestones was knocking out his first Bar and Ring Muscle Ups which he got to put to use in his first CrossFit Open. Speaking of the Open, Sean’s performance for the…

Mother, Daughter Duo AOTM: "All Roads Lead to CMR" with Lori and Jenn Gaudreau

Lori and Jennifer Gaudreau Let me start by saying that for those of you who witnessed Coach Sebastian tell my mom we had both been nominated for June’s AOTM, shocked and flattered and humbled and speechless and shocked again were all words that come to mind to describe how we felt. Neither of us were ever considered to be athletes as kids or athletic or would ever dream to be recognized like this. It is such an honor and…

Sue Young

I was always an active kid, trying every activity out there to see what fit me best. I never made a single goal in soccer, struck out in softball, and didn’t get too much playing time on the basketball court. It was all those dance classes my mom enrolled me in that kept me moving. I had rhythm, coordination, balance and a competitive edge. I threw myself into cheerleading and gymnastics and every other weekend I was in a…

I didn’t start working out until I got into H.S. and then it was only because I had to. I…

Seriously, the Manta Ray team has been the most supportive group of athletes I’ve ever encountered, and have made me the athlete I am today. Our Coaches are awesome to have brought such a great Box to our hood. Let me tell you a bit about me… I’ve always been an athletic type. I’ve participated in all the…

Craig Harter

Many of you may not know Craig because by the time you wake up in the morning, he has already been at the gym for two hours and gone home to shower and begin his day. Since the first day that he walked into our doors, he was dead set on being a CrossFitter and has never looked back. He has never missed a 530AM class (or a 7AM class on Saturday). Craig stays after the WOD every single…

AOTM: "Strength Outside the Box" with Lori Milo

From the Coaches: Lori was one of our original members when we opened our doors January 2014. Since then, she has been coming consistently at 530AM pretty much every morning. She definitely embodies the ‘Rise and Grind’ mentality. Even though she walks through our doors each morning fresh out of bed and still sleepy, by the time the timer ticks down to 0 she has left it all out on the floor and is now ready to start her…
