We are proud to announce Christy Knight as our CFSS Athlete of the month! Do not let Christy’s smile and friendly disposition fool you. Under that smile lies the determination, focus, and drive to match that of any other athlete in the gym! You will not find a single ounce of quit in Christy’s repertoire and she is always there to encourage and support her fellow athletes. Check out her CrossFit story below!

Name: Christy Knight
Age: 44
Occupation: Clinical Social Worker, Durham VA Medical Center
Hometown: Raleigh, NC

Next month will be my two year anniversary at Crossfit Sua Sponte. Being chosen as the athlete of the month makes me realize how far I’ve come since first walking in those doors. There are so many amazing athletes here and this type of recognition is a true honor for me.

My fitness journey began while a student at North Carolina State University. I took a weight lifting PE course and realized how much I enjoyed weight lifting. After graduating, I joined a gym and held gym memberships for years until my workout partner, Mary Kate Harris, tried Crossfit at Sua Sponte and joined. She encouraged me to leave the gym and here I am today working out harder, in my forties, than I ever have in my life.

I have a “type A personality” and can be my own worst critic. I admit there was a time when I felt frustrated with my performance. I shared my feelings with John and the other coaches where my feelings were normalized. I was encouraged to set realistic goals, celebrate gains, stop comparing my performance to others and most of all have fun. Last May, I enrolled in the first strength training class and can see tremendous improvements in my strength. I attribute this to the coaches and other athletes that I learn from and inspire me to push myself every evening. John once told us, “Your mind will give up faster than your body will.” I remind myself of this often when facing challenging workouts at CFSS, and other challenges in my life.

With Crossfit I’ve made significant changes in my fitness level, nutrition and mental toughness. When joining CFSS I never imagined how much Crossfit and the people here would impact life in such a positive way. I feel very fortunate to belong to such a wonderful place and be surrounded by caring people.
