We would like to announce our very first featured athlete, Gerard Bross. Not only has Gerard undergone an awe inspiring transformation, but he always has a smile on his face and is such a big part of our community.

gerard2Gerard is by far the happiest Irishman I know. He is an absolute pleasure to work with day after day. It has been a privilege to be on this amazing journey with Gerard. His amazing weight loss and transformation is a testament to his daily hard work and deduction. Gerard is not only an inspiration to me but I can honesty tell you he inspires the entire CFE commUNITY” – Jenn

He is known not only for his great attitude but also his perseverance.

“I love this and that you chose Gerard!! I would have suggested him first if you hadn’t chosen him! Some of my favorite moments to see Gerard at the box are not only times when he is succeeding, but times when he is facing a roadblock, be it mental or physical. He seems to overcome any obstacle in his path, whether it is a lack of motivation or a skill he hasn’t yet mastered. It is inspiring to watch him persevere when he has a goal in mind!!” – Lindsay

 

“Gerard is a great example that self discipline works. No excuses. If you want something bad enough you can accomplish it. Gerard, thank you for the great attitude. You are an inspiration.” – Scott

 

“I have been with Gerard since day 1 of Elements and to say how proud I am of him is just the tip of the iceberg. He comes in to every class with a positive mental attitude, ready to absorb the “knowledge” that we as coaches try to pass along. To see how far he as come on his journey and knowing where he wants to go as an athlete is an inspiration!!” -Tim

One day I saw Gerard bringing in speakers into the lab. When asked about it, he stated that he tripped over the cord and blew the other ones. I think this example shows what a ‘stand-up’ guy Gerard is. He could have easily walked away, but he not only replaced them, but brought in much better ones…He is the epitome of quiet strength, as he has made incredible progress, but is the last to tell you of it. He is humble and always smiling. What a great member of the CFE community.” -Craig

Gerard4Gerard’s Transformation

The moment Gerard walked through our doors he was a breath of fresh air.  Hearing his story of his weight loss was inspiring not only to us coaches, but to everyone in the gym.  His dedication, drive and positive attitude is infectious and reminds me of why I love my job.  He is new to Crossfit and watching him do the Open this year made me so proud as a coach to see his athletic improvement.  Excited to see where this next year takes him!” – Lisa

 

“Gerard is an exemplary member whose mental outlook I wish I could clone. Always a smile, always a thank you, even when I give him some brutal WOD or skill to work on. He has an infectious good nature and persistence that everyone benefits from.” – Jay
