October Female Athlete of the Month: Alyssa

Congrats to our female athlete of the month, Alyssa!

Alyssa is one of those athletes that might fly under the radar a bit but don’t let her fool you, she works hard, stays consistent and is amazing at taking direction from coaches. She was one of our first athletes at CrossFit River Prairie and she’s been improving since the day she walked in the door. Alyssa knows her body and her limits well but still pushes and challenges herself to learn new skills and become a better athlete.
