For the month of March we’d like to congratulate Jeff Ragone on being the spotlight athlete! Jeff has been a member at CFR for several years now. Jeff always comes to class with a positive attitude, always friendly to new athletes, and always takes cues from the coaches. He knows when to push a littler harder during workouts but also scale when needed. And knows the importance of mobility and warming up. Jeff continues to get stronger and stronger. We couldn’t be prouder to have him apart of our CFR family!

Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit Rolesville?
Participating in our annual Murph events – hero WODs have a special place in my heart having served with some selfless Americans in my 30 years of service who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
How did you find CFR? Why do you train?
I dropped in and I was hooked! Training has always been a part of my lifestyle and I like chocolate chip cookies !
What is your favorite moment so far at CFR?
My favorite moments never have anything to do with me. They’re the moments watching a new member do that first strict pull-up, double under or complete that first RX workout!
What is your daily motivation to workout?
Favorite and least favorite movements?
Pull-up/push-ups/bench press and double unders . Snatches
What’s one thing you would tell a new CrossFitter?
Master the basics and you’ll reap the benefits!
One song that gets you amped up during a WOD?
Tell us something about yourself that we don’t already know.
I eat Texas Pete Hotter hot sauce on just about EVERYTHING!
