CrossFit Victoria, Fitzroy, Melbourne

Today we are celebrating this month’s Athlete of the Month; Adrian (Bumble) Purificato!

When we asked the coaches to say a few words about Adrian, there was definitely a theme.  Adrian is one of the most delightful members to coach – he listens and takes on feedback, he brings a great attitude and community spirit to every class, he never hesitates when helping out other members, and he has brilliant taste in music (very important, obviously)!

What is most impressive about him (and you will see below that all the coaches attest to this), is that, despite injuries and set backs, his spirit never waivers and always brings a positive energy to the gym.  We never fail to be impressed by his commitment, his spirit and his determination to be and do the best he can do.

Adrian and his beautiful wife Steph are also expecting their first child and the entire staff at CrossFit Victoria wholeheartedly wish them all best – you’re going to be amazing parents!

Check out all the awesome things our coaches had to say about Adrian!

Head Coach Amelia said: “Ever since Adrain walked through the doors at CrossFit Victoria he has been one of our most outstanding members, so friendly and welcoming to everyone and always there to cheer people on and help them out. He always has a massive smile on his even when he is dying in the WOD haha.”
“Adrian has been dealing with injuries the last few months but he never lets it get him down. He works through them and focuses on making his body move better as well as feel better.”

He’s always there to cheer on the person next to him, give you a hello and a high five, and introduce himself to the newest member of CFVic. He always has a smile on his face and a positive attitude in the gym. He embodies community spirit and is one of the kindest people I know.
