December 2017: Brianna Abeyta!
Decembers Athlete of the Month award goes to Brianna Abeyta and I don't know of a more appropriate AOM to wrap up 2017 than Bri! Her peers nominated her, but her work, effort, attitude and results in the gym in 2017 is really what earned her the honor of the December 2017 MCF AOM. Bri always shows up between traveling the world and working 2 jobs. She puts in the work with a smile on her face and was the only MCF athlete to successfully cross off all of the goals that she set for her self at the beginning of 2017. She is always game to throw down at a comp with anyone or go bouldering or anything fitness or MCF community related. She epitomizes the saying "Ready for Anything" and is a pleasure to be around! Can't wait to see what 2018 has in store for Bri!
