Athlete of the Month - Martin Capellupo


I am incredibly thankful (and surprised) to have been selected as the Athlete of the Month at TNT. Starting off earlier in life as primarily as a powerlifter and bodybuilder, I never anticipated how much I would enjoy Crossfit.

It all started during COVID brought about a significant shift in my workout routine with my normal commercial gym closing. I was continually encouraged by Mike Barnett and Darrell West in convincing me to join TNT to try something new. Little did I know that this decision would reignite my passion for working out and help push me in so many different ways.

One of the aspects I cherish most about TNT is the incredible camaraderie I have found among my 5AM Crossfit teammates and Coaches. I’m constantly being pushed to new limits and I’ve always found unwavering support during challenging workouts. The sense of belonging and purpose don't come around often and it’s something I’ve greatly enjoyed.

Reflecting on the past two years, I can confidently say that joining TNT and embracing Crossfit has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The workouts are intense, the challenges are constant, but the rewards are immeasurable. I am grateful to the coaches and fellow athletes at TNT for their constant support, guidance, and encouragement.

As I continue on this journey, I am excited to see what the future holds and how far I can push myself at TNT. TNT and Crossfit have become a big part of my life, and I am truly thankful for the opportunities they have provided me and I’m grateful for all the amazing people I am lucky enough to be around every day. Thank you to everyone at TNT.
