“EB” – Eric Burnley, Athlete of the Month

As a kid being outside and playing sports was always important to Eric. Golf & Basketball were always the sports he loved the most. When he is not playing golf you can always find him watching sports on TV. He takes great pride in being a 76ers fan, going to games and screaming at the top of his lungs when they screw up. Weight training was never important to Eric because he was never exposed to it during high school and college years. When he first sent the email to Vinny asking to check out the gym he had no idea what he was getting into. He is now almost a year and half into it and Thermal has become a big part of his life and daily schedule. Eric is getting married on May 5th of this year. He ows a big thanks to his fiance Melissa for always supporting him and pushing him to wake up and go to the 6am WOD. When he got to thermal he could barley clean 95 pounds. The thought of doing a muscle up seemed so far out of reach. Just recently he PR’d his squat clean at 215 pounds and is doing MU’s in WODs. Not only has Crossfit changed his fitness level, it has change his lifestyle completely. Thank you so much to the entire coaching staff and Thermal community for being so supportive and welcoming. Lets go Sixers & finally we must all TRUST THE PROCESS. This shit really works!
