Athlete of the Month: August 2017
Nicole Brownfield: August 2017 Member of the Month
Caffeinated CrossFit, Smyrna, GA
Nicole, mother of TWO (furry pups) who are part of the Caffeinated Pup Squad, joined the Caffeinated CrossFit community in June of 2016 with her husband Patrick. Both Nicole and Patrick represent such core part of our community, being serious about leading a healthy lifestyle and having a strong family foundation, yet relaxed enough to enjoy life. Nicole works so incredibly hard towards her goals and it was truly a joy to see her achieve her goals and reap the rewards of hard work. She can spark the fire in everyone around her and the best example is when she got her first bar muscle up during the open, and it lit everybody in the gym up with excitement and happiness (especially Pat).
