May’s Athlete of the Month

Matt Porto

What physical and mental changes have you seen since starting CrossFit? I have lost over 60 pounds to date. Overall I feel so much better, I’m much happier, and have more energy then I can ever remember in my adult life.


Matt joined the box and started his CrossFit journey with us last October and has been a perfect example of what happens when you decide to make a change and continue to show up. We preach it all the time, “it’s a simple receipt- just grab your sneakers and continue to show up”. In less than a year, Matt is down 60lbs and continues to get leaner, stronger and fitter, because everyday he shows up. I specifically remember Matt coming up to me not to long ago after a 1 mile run was programmed and he said “I think that is the first time I’ve ran a mile without having to stop and walk.” He was excited about his accomplishments and all I could think was, that’s amazing! That is what we are here for!  We can’t wait to see what more you have in store Matt! For these reasons and many more, Matt has earned the title May’s Athlete of the Month!
