Today we say ‘see you later’ to another valuable member of Fight Tonight and a regular force in our 9 AM class. She will be leaving us to head back to Texas where she has lots of family and friends excitedly awaiting her return.
“Mustang Tori” (she has no idea about this nickname, *surprise*!!) she is both fast and strong (hence ‘Mustang Tori’) with a heart of gold. She will forever be in the corner trying to stretch that damn hip yet lap you in a run, and do it with a freaking smile. When she is not working through her love-hate relationship with Olympic lifts…so much love that she renamed the snatch the “Twatch” or the Twisting- Snatch. She is the only person who can catch a snatch on one knee and then rotate 90 degrees, it’s actually pretty and impressive. If she is not working on that can catch her trying to master that perfect set of unbroken toes-to-bar (just don’t think about it, right ;)) otherwise she is eagerly helping the other moms of the group by setting up daycare/ babysitting arrangements so moms can WOD without worrying about child care. Both new and old members have been touched by her kindness whether it was her genuine interest in making a new person feel welcomed or her offer to help an expectant mother, Tori truly embodies the best parts of being a Crossfitter-Military Spouse.
She is strong as hell, resourceful, open, creative, and accepting. The eternal educator and curriculum designer, Tori has been putting her creativity and her new L1 to use by writing entire months of programming on her own for the sake of learning and feedback. If the few months that I have seen are any indication her future athletes are in for a treat! When you do decide to coach your new gym will be lucky to have your motivation and persistence as part of their team. We are sad to see you go but excited for what lies ahead for you and your family. Thank you for bringing your brand of genuine kindness and fitness to our Fight Tonight Family, you will be truly missed.
