This months athlete spotlight of the month is on our very own Chris Malich. While we typically would not direct the spotlight on one of our coaches we have to give credit where credit is due. Chris has become and invaluable asset to our coaching staff and the Cobalt family. Having started out as a CFC intern Chris has grown into a great coach, where she is extremely passionate and compassionate. Chris is always putting her work outs on hold to help and assist others.
While she is still a coach she has not neglected to practice as a crossfitter herself. Over the months Chris has completely revamped her Double Unders and is constantly practicing the skill work to obtain he muscle ups!!!
