Many athletes earned the label by coming to a crossroads in life and deciding to take a path leading away from old habits. CrossFit affiliates are there to support those choices with a community founded on fitness, friendship and healthy food.
For Annie Kolatsis, CrossFit Mother City in Cape Town, South Africa, provided the backup when she made her decision to move past an “allergy” to exercise. Kolatsis said she struggled through her introduction to CrossFit but immediately saw that her labors were changing her for the better. Now she wants to renew her membership for life.
Her story is a testament to the good work done by CrossFit affiliates all over the world, and CrossFit Inc. is sending Kolatsis US$500 for sharing her experience. CrossFit Mother City will receive a $500 gift card from Rogue Fitness.
