Ben Askren Fight Video

Well, once again, Boss athlete, Ben Askren, did what he does best…DOMINATE!

Ben made his Asian debut May 30th, in the ONE FC fighting organization, Asia’s largest fighting organization, second in the world to mega giant, UFC.

Many of our members get to see Ben and interact with him during his training camp at Workout Boss, in Brookfield, so you know he’s been putting in a lot of work leading up to this fight. Well, it all paid off, as he finished the fight in the first round via submission.

Here is a link to the FULL FIGHT VIDEO!

Ben still has  5 fights left in his contract, so more intense Boss style training is in his future. If you see Ben in the gym be sure to congratulate him and tell him to get to work!!!

Athletes of the Month-May 2014

Congratulations to the MAY 2014 ATHLETE OF THE MONTH: JEREMY STUCKEY & MOST IMPROVED ATHLETE: LEAH GOOD.

Jeremy
strives for greatness everyday, yet keeps a humble heart, and always goes out of his way to help others improve so they can perform at their highest level. He motivates, inspires, and never stops learning. It is for all of these reasons and more that Jeremy has set the bar for what we are calling “ATHLETE OF THE MONTH.”

When Leah first came to CrossFit Funky, I will be honest, I didn’t think she was going to be a member for very long (LOL). But to my amazement and sheer awe, Leah, kept showing up to Coach Mel’s 9am Lady Boss class, and then soon after, she showed up to the evening classes and soon after that, the weekend classes, this girl was on fire! Almost every day she had a new question about how to properly perform exercises and how to modify a move she felt uncomfortable with. . She had her days where, no doubt she got discouraged, yet she showed up the next day and rocked out a new WOD. Leah embodies the spirit of CrossFit in that, it’s not about where you start, it’s about where you finish!

From all of the coaches- Thank you both for being such a great part of our gym. You make us ALL better.CrossFit Funky Brookfield, wi

PS- You both are getting a 60 min massage as a reward you for your hard work and dedication.
