Athlete of the Month – Claudia Gonzalez
Our October athlete of the month is….CLAUDIA GONZALEZ. When Claudia Gonzalez first walked through the doors of CrossFit Round Rock in 2013, she was ready for some changes. Heck! She was 11 weeks pregnant after all! With that 4th member to their family on the way, everything was about to change – so why not start CrossFit!?!
Claudia had never in her life spent time in a gym prior to this moment in 2013. She dove into personal training sessions with Coach Anna and stayed consistent all the way up to labor starting. Yes, really. That baby was getting ready to make his grand entrance, and mama Claudia was still considering getting a workout in that day! This woman showed her coach impressive commitment and love for the new found sport in her life from the very very beginning.
Once Claudia was up and running with baby #2, she was strolling back into the gym with that little guy by her side to get her body moving once again! It was empowering to feel strong during her pregnancy, and she’s been hungry for more ever since!
Fast forward to current day, Little Robby is 4 years old, and Claudia is as strong as ever. She recently completed her first CFRR 1 mile loop for time and has ever-evolving goals and a tenacious work ethic that moves her forward every day. Claudia is a steady workhorse and a force to be reckoned with beyond what she may even imagine! You can find her smile and fabulous sense of humor in the CFRR F.I.T. class on Tuesdays and Saturdays, as well as a weekly PT session with Coach Adrien. She is a professor of insanely crazy sciencey things at Austin Community College, wife of Roberto, and mother of two. This girl has carved out a special place in her coaches hearts, and we are overdue in honoring Claudia for the true badass of a human that she is! We Love you CG!
