July- Member of the month

Congratulations to Danielle Cowgill- our July Member of the Month! We enjoy spotlighting one member each month to let you see a different side of them. With the ever growing community at CFL, we want you to feel like you know people from all hours of the day! MOM gives us that chance, to ask questions, hear your funny answers, and celebrate the community that makes CFL such a great place.



Danielle has been with CFL for a while. Though you might not always catch her in your regular CrossFit class,  you usually can catch her in the Oly corner working on her technique and strength with Coach Albert. If she’s not in either of those places, she’s most likely hanging on the couches drinking a Coors Light! Danielle mentions in her MOM interview that CFL is a family affair for her. Her dad (Bob), and Brother-in-Law’s (Adam and Alex) are CFL regulars in the afternoons as well. Danielle is kind, gentle hearted, and relentlessly gives to others. She is a great cook (and baker!), and is ALWAYS there to lend an ear or a helping hand.

When did you start CrossFit? August 2014 (man i really need to work on my skills…this is pathetic…..)

What does CFL mean to you?  CFL is more than just my community; it’s literally my family. Not only does my family go to CFL (dad, brother-in-law, brother of the brother-in-law…) but I have made so many friends there that encourage me to be better everyday. It’s one place where I can go to clear my mind and relax especially after work. Where else can you get your butt kicked and then have a beer with some of the nicest people you can meet 🙂

We are so lucky to have people with such good hearts like Danielle. Thank you for being our July MOM Danielle!
