Member Spotlight Of The Month: October/November 2019

Our member of the month honors go to one of our favorite gym couples; Jane and Doug Lee!

Jane and Doug have been HPCF Members for about 8-months. Doug is an avid runner and bike rider which has been his primary fitness regime for many years.

Jane, got on weight watchers and lost over 100lbs following their guidelines.

Both Jane and Doug have younger daughters who do CrossFit in other states and they recommended that they too get into the fun! Plus, they wanted to add on some muscle and strength!

Jane and Doug joined up and saw some immediate results. Plus, the added benefit of some friendly competition along with something to chat with their children about made things much more interesting.

They both have been very consistent and we love seeing them improve every class, every day and doing it with a smile on their faces!

Jane and Doug will be joining us on the Anchored Podcast, November 11th so keep your eyes open for their interview.
