More from Keely...
I just wanted you to know that Cobalt Crossfit has changed my life to HAPPY!...thanks!
A word from Cobalt:
While we have seen so many amazing transformations at Cobalt, it has been especially fun to watch Keely grow and excel as an athlete. In the beginning, the movements we were asking her to complete were way out of her comfort zone, but as time passed Keely continued to practice and improve. Her effort and dedication became very evident one Saturday afternoon class during a partner WOD where she was doing everything in her power to motivate her partner and keep them moving. Keely, who at one time, had to be show every movement before a WOD was taking the a fellow athlete under her wing and providing encouragement and guidance.
WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU KEELY!!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!
