Spotlight Athlete of the Month | NANCY DONAHUE

By: 0

Nancy is just a few weeks shy of her one year anniversary at CrossFit Epping. She is also one attendance shy of her 100th class. That’s right, we counted. Think about it. That’s 100 hours in the last year that Nancy has consistently devoted to her fitness at CFE alone. Pretty damn impressive right?

Now take into consideration that within those 100 hours she has pushed herself to get better every day. Showing up is one thing. But showing up, working hard and being proud of your effort has a whole other outcome and Nancy does all those things and more. She’s very coachable and a genuine pleasure to have in class. Read on to hear a little bit from Nancy herself!

What do you do outside of CrossFit?
My husband and I like to go hiking a lot, and I also attend a yoga class once a week.

I attended Southside Fitness in Dover.

What made you chose CFE?
We moved to Fremont and I wanted to keep active and attend a class environment.

Trying to accept the fact that I’m getting old.
