Desi and Melissa at the finish line

They’re CFW’s members that don’t live in close enough to us to come in everyday.  They wear the CFW colors at CF events and competitions with pride and claim us as their home affiliate.  The send us videos for us to coach and questions on nutrition and training. 
So I want to formally introduce our newest long distance member, Desiree Walker.  Maybe you heard about her attending CF Ocean Isle Beach’s workout/cookout or most recently, competing this past weekend at The Garage Games in GA.
Desi was introduced to us by Melissa H.  They’ve been buds for long time and have done running events and fitness competitions together.  Desiree has her pro-card in fitness competition and competes on the national level.  The fitness events require all 10 general physical skills and Desi has developed them all.  Her first real CrossFit workout came at CF OIB by way of “Cindy”.  She did 24 rounds.  Not bad for a first timer, huh?
Melissa talked Desi into the signing up for the Garage Games.  We gave her a crash course in all the lifts and exercises they’d be performing at the G Games and off she went…  to a 2nd place finish!  She and Melissa tied in points for 1st, so the judges defaulted to the first workout of the day to name the winner.  
Desiree has a few more Fitness Shows to do, and then we’re gonna get her prepared for the 2011 CF Games.
