Today we would like to wish two of our CFIV ladies a very happy birthday on their special days. Both of them, along with their husbands and family have become integral parts of our community and we thank them for their individual contributions to the collective spirit of the CFIV family.
Dani joined us at CECF shortly after her sister, Karla, started up with us. She came from a heavy endurance background but quickly took to increasing her overall strength. She continues to make huge gains and even decided to participate in the IE CrossFit Open performing superbly in WOD 11.2. Dani continues to use CrossFit to supplement her running and looks forward to taking on the Big Sur
Half Marathon later this month with her husband, George.
Happy Birthday, Dani – we wish the happiest birthday!
Started CrossFit: July 2010
Favorite Lift/Movement: Deadlifts and Back Squats/ Sit ups
Least Favorite Movement: Handstand push ups/ double unders
Least Favorite WOD: Filthy 50
CrossFit Goals: To get stronger and better in every lift/movement
Best CrossFit Accomplishment: Being able to do a pull up (something I was never able to do at LA Fitness). Overall CrossFit has made me stronger in every way, and that alone is a great accomplishment. Like Will said, “I was in awe about the possibilities of its programming in really poking around the dark corners of personal limits”. CFIV ROCKS!
Sandy has become a fixture in our morning classes along with her husband, Andy. She has put in solid effort since she joined us at CFIV working hard to learn the movements while at the same time giving encouragement to those around her. She can be seen regularly at the Open weekend events enthusiastically cheering on her CFIV classmates. Sandy also contributed greatly one weekend by capturing some wonderful photos of our athletes in action. We look forward to watching her continuous progress as she moves steadily through our program.
Happy birthday, Sandy – we hope you have the greatest of days.

Last but certainly not least, we would like to wish our fearless leader Justus a very happy birthday as well! Where those outside of our gym might see just a gym, we all see CFIV as home. Justus selflessly gives so much of his time and effort to make that a reality. in fact, he is so giving that he decide to share his birthday post with the two CFIV ladies above
