Macky Pannu: March 2018 Member of the Month
Caffeinated CrossFit, Smyrna, GA
MACKY!!!! He is one of our first members and still with us without dropping a beat the entire time we've been open. He's one of the dedicated 6 am'ers who have seen cycles of folks come through the gym and we are incredibly lucky to have a foundation of members like him. From the outrageous volume of working out that he does to the grittiness of not giving up during them, Macky makes working out with him fun. He reminds us to work hard play hard(er) every day and helps all of us at the gym to not lose sight of that.

Coach Christine brags, "Macky is THE OG! He has started and been a consistent pillar of the 6 AM class for the entirety of Caffeinated AM class history. No matter the workout, he is always working hard (usually sweating off the previous night’s shenanigans 😊) and pushing his crew to do the same."
Coach Mary chimes in, "Macky is a staple of the 6 AM crew! You can expect him no earlier than 6:07 AM but he shows up consistently and puts in hard work on a regular basis! He is always pushing those around him to work hard as well!
"Macky is always putting in the time to work towards his goals. You can always find him getting a weighted run in, or doing some extra lifting outside of class. He’s a positive energy to coach because he’ll push those around him while still getting the job done. Great job, Macky!" Coach Jess adds.
Coach Mike V. exclaims, "Macky is a super hard worker and will show up no matter what. He brings energy and livelihood to the 6 am group and is always fun to be around."
