FCCF Athlete: Jessica S.

“I chose Jessica because in my time at the gym I always see her attending. Jessica loves to try new things, accepts a challenge and also supports change. She is very coachable. She’s a joy to have in class and an honor to show off when it comes to movements. Jessica has been well dedicated to CrossFit and the gym by always attending with a great attitude and a strong will power. Jessica is the smile in the room most the time and even when she’s not having the best of the day. She never shows it! Good sport, good attitude, a true joy in class!” – Coach Shane
