Our Athlete of the Month is no stranger to anyone as she has been coming to MCCF for 5+ years. Lately however, we have taken notice that she has stepped up her game. She has been getting stronger, faster and landing herself on the top of the whiteboard some days. Over the years we have watched Jess Funke evolve into an amazing athlete and we could not be more proud of her!
I asked Jess to give a few highlights as to what brought her to MCCF and some special memories along the way and this is what she had to say….
“I came to MCCF over 5 years ago. I had started a new job and was in the processes of moving and needed to find a gym to fit my schedule and new location. I had been a regular gym goer for years, spending hours on cardio equipment and dabbling with weight machines. So when I was in search of a new gym, I came across MCCF. I didn’t really know much about it other than it looked intense. I had a friend in Danbury that did it, so I reached out to her to get the low down. After encouragement to give it a try I signed up for on ramp. Due to my schedule, I did on ramp one on one with Tim Chan. Although I started alone, I immediately felt welcomed. The combination of cardio, lifting and a challenge was exactly what I wanted. I was immediately hooked.
