Member Spotlight: Matt Eanes
It was about this time last year when Matt walked through the doors of CrossFit Kazam. After talking with him, I could tell he was really looking for what CrossFit Kazam could offer him. Looking to get him in to give it a try, I didn't see Matt for several months before he came back in. Now, he's a lunch time faithful. If he's not traveling for work, he always at the 11:45am class. Matt is always asking questions, looking to constantly improve and perfect his movements every day. "Becoming a better you" is the name of the game, and over the recent months, Matt has really excelled in the game. While always being the first one to reach out with a "how's it going?" I'm sure most of us have gotten to know Matt over the recent months. Though, as a newer member of the Kazamily, I think we should all have a chance to meet the "tall Matt."
