January's Athlete Of The Month- Sammi Burkart


As weird as it is to say, I started Crossfit because of my Dad. About two years ago, my Dad found Crossfit TNT, after my sister/cousins sparked his interest in the sport Crossfit. Liking the facility and community, he talked to me about giving it a try. At first I was against the idea, thinking that it wasn't for me. But He insisted, getting me in contact with Courtney for foundations. Listening to him, I finished foundations over the next couple weeks, with group class to follow. The feeling I had when I left that first group class, a mixture of nervous excitement to do it again and regret of the soreness I would soon be feeling, was something I wanted to feel again.

I have seen my progress grow these past two years, not only in my improved times/weights but also in the community that I have found here at TNT.

I want to thank all the Coaches for this honor, friends that I have made at TNT for the continued push, and my family for getting me started in this great sport.
