CrossFit Virilis September Member of the Month: Jen Whitaker

Jen is a badass, and we’re so happy to have her in the CFV fam! Wish we had a video of her first workout compared to her workouts a year and a half in — the great progress she has made! This girl is awesome, and works so hard every day! Love that she has the mindset that this is a place she can come to just turn off her mind, get in an awesome workout, and forget about everything else. She makes us proud!
