December Newsletter & Athlete Spotlight

 

HOLIDAY TIME IS HERE!!!

Don’t let the HOLIDAY hype get in the way of your workout. Make sure you come in and work off those Holiday Treats we know we all love.

JAIME TAYLOR
SPOTLIGHT ATHLETE
Jaime began Crossfit in 2010. She started at GOAT when it was in a garage. She is considered an “OG” Member of GOAT.

“My favorite thing about CrossFit Goat is that we are family. We share each other’s triumphs and failures. Well food too, family always eats together lol. ”

“I love doing Crossfit because our workouts are always different. They challenge us in a new way every day, which leaves room for constant growth and improvement.”

Jaime’s favorite movements are thrusters and pull-ups. “My whole life has changed since starting crossfit. Not many people know this but I used to smoke for years (awful I know). I was scared to death to step foot into a gym. About a year before joining crossfit, I stopped smoking. Amanda talked me into trying crossfit, and I finally agreed after much resistance. I have not looked back since.”

Jaime has been married to her husband Justin for 13 years. They have three children; Bradley (16), Jackson (11), and Jorga (8).

Keep up the great work and positive attitude Jaime!!
