John Newman is CFD's Member of the Month!!!


John has been a member with CFD since we first opened our doors 3 years ago.  If he's missing from class you notice it as a coach, because he always brings a ton of energy and a smile.  We imagine John was a class clown in his early years, but this may have just been a learned behavior as he got older and wiser.  Day in and day out John puts in work to become a better athlete, which he proved by finishing in 1st place in his age group at his last CrossFit competition, and a frole model for his two sons, Austin and Aaron.  John even married his high school sweetheart, Gena!  They will celebrate 20 years of marriage this month!!!  Congratulations John!!!!
