Our beautiful bad ass July athlete of the month.. Miriam Andrews! She is fierce, and we love having her as part of our ladies class community.
“Miriam is a pain in the butt! Just Kidding 🙂 but for real I’ve never had a more loyal ladies class attendee who disapproved of my programming more, well that’s not exactly true Nesa has her share of complaints 🙂 she must just really love this group, she might just love them as much as I do. Miriam is the muscle and she inspires other ladies to put more color on their bars. Miriam always has a goal, she is knowledgeable, and experienced athlete. Did I mention she is creative, Miriam has some great ideas and she applies them when she is changing my workouts every single day! Miriam you are part of the club now, you have put up with our crazy jokes and other shenanigans. I appreciate your commitment and hard work! I will certainly miss you!” – Coach Amy L
“Miriam is one lady you don’t want to mess with! She is a fierce sprinter and throws around weight like it’s her job. Focused, dedicated and ready to work. I often look to her when picking my weight for the WOD and scale back because I know she is one serious bad a$$!” – Kayleen, former athlete of the month
