Athlete of the Month Truman Schoenholz

A Note From Coach Michelle

Truman started with CFStC in 2017 when he was just 10 years old. Truman is a young man of few words but he shows who he is every single time he walks into the gym. Truman is by far the most consistent athlete that I have the pleasure of coaching. Not only that, he always gives 100% effort to no matter what the movement is, even if it the bake and wallballs (I can picture his face now as I write this!) Truman is always up for a challenge. Each time I ask him what weight he wants to use, he looks at me and shrugs and accepts whatever amount I give him without question. He is more than willing to try new movements and always gives his best, not matter what, even with handstands. I think we all can learn from Truman and his work ethic, not to mention…Have you seen his squat, textbook. Truman is a great kid inside and out of the gym walls. It is a pleasure to coach hime every Tuesday and Thursday and I cannot wait to see where he goes from here!
