May Athlete of the Month – Nate Chavez and Veronica Soliz
Congrats to Veronica Soliz and Nate Chavez, CrossFit Throne’s May Athletes of the Month!
After reviewing our community, it became VERY obvious that we needed both a male and female athlete of the month. So for May, and going-forward, we will announce two AoTMs every month.
This month, the decision was fairly easy to make; all of the coaches agreed that Nate and Veronica nailed it for May! Not only did they pour-in and hit some extra sessions every week, they also found new strength, made technical improvements, and have seen their overall health improve. Both athletes hit Personal Records in their lifts and on the major benchmarks, and they both climbed the Leader Boards to inspire/challenge some of the other athletes who’ve been resting comfortably at the top for a long while.
We asked Solè Barron for a couple of words regarding Veronica:
When I asked her to come to CrossFit Throne she was so hesitant, but I knew she would fall in love with it. From the first day she stepped in, I knew she was hooked – she is so mentally and physically strong. I’m so proud of her and what she’s doing and how far she has gone and where she’s headed. She’s shown me that you don’t quit… EVER! She keeps pushing and pushing until the clock stops.
When we asked Val Lopez about Nate, she told us:
Nate began his CrossFit journey half a year ago cutting his baby teeth at Crossfit Throne. It all started after he changed his mindset realizing that he is capable of doing mighty things, and he found strength that he never knew existed. Nate is an inspiring example of someone who never gives up and always gives 100%.
The coaches have been inspired by the grit, sweat, and heart poured out by Veronica and Nate, and we’re excited to see how far these two athletes go!
Thanks for bringing your awesomeness to all of us!
