November’s Member of the Month is Jan Lee!

Jan is really awesome for a lot of reasons. The first being this video:

This is what you guys have to say about him:

“Jan Lee is kind of the reason we created “Member of the Month” in the first place.  I was actually fortunate enough to do his “test out” session when he first started at CFCC and I knew about fifteen minutes in that I was really going to like Jan (and that I was definitely going to try to recruit him for Advanced Team – the dude’s got GUNS).  He pretty much smiled for the entirety of the fifteen minutes and hasn’t really stopped since then – except maybe, when he’s had days like yesterday. Yesterday was a day like so many for Jan; he came here after work and smiled through some early skill work that I’ve given him to do (NOT THE FUN KIND), a normal session, a gymnastics session, and then stays for Croga… and then, asks me if there’s anything else that he can do training-wise, or if I need help putting anything away.  Seriously?  He’s an exceptional athlete because Jan is a truly exceptional person: he works hard to be the best that he can be, accepts that his training at CFCC is always a work in progress, and befriends pretty much anyone immediately. I’m so glad he’s at our gym and I hope he never stops learning new things – it’s a privilege to watch all that smiling.” – Erin

“Jan is always cheerful and willing to work hard even when I ask him to do crazy things like log his food for a month.” – Meg

“Jan is always quietly cheering for anyone suffering through a tough metcon…and always willing to help when CFCC needs it!”

“Jan Lee is the man! Enough said.”

“Not only is he one of the nicest members at the gym and is always willing to help another member out, but he had a pretty good month too.  He went 6/6 in lifts at the oly meet all while battling a hip flexor injury in the lead up to the meet.  And on top of that, he takes amazing oly lifting pics and spiked the bar at the meet, which is totally badass and has to count for something too.”

Congrats Jan!
