This month we are proud to announce that Evan Doherty is our January Spotlight Athlete! Evan started working out at CrossFit Rolesville when he was 14 and has always shown awesome athleticism. Even though he’s one of the younger athletes in class; he always respects the coach, listens to cues, and constantly makes progress. Even with a full schedule of school and swim practices, he still makes time to train at CFR. We are extremely proud of Evan, both inside and outside of the gym. And we wish him all the success when he goes off to Barton College!
