Annoucing July MVP at Jefferson City CrossFit – Jennifer McKim
Jen came to visit us well over a year ago, with her boyfriend, Kevin. She said they worked together, lived together, they better start working out together! They signed up as a couple and there was no holding back! Now able to do strict pullups and always, putting a smile onto peoples faces. She has talked several friends to try a free class out. As of late, one of her previous bosses came in with her. And we both agreed, where ever she goes, she brings joy and life to that community. We have seen her and Kevin get engaged and recently get married. As of most recent, she brought in some phenomenol Chocolate peanut butter protein bars, and they were delicious! Thank you Jen for being a part of our community!
