Meet Jacqueline Mills:
CFML-Wayne’s leader of the Month with a Passion for Progress! ๐ŸŒŸ

Meet Jacqueline Mills, CFML-Wayne’s Leader of the Month! Jacqueline excels at tracking her progress without fixating on numbers. Her favorite movement is the push press, but she’s also working on improving her pistols and running.

Before joining CrossFit, Jacqueline frequented basic gyms until she stumbled into CrossFit “by accident” at a non-affiliated location. Her favorite class times vary based on her dynamic work schedule, either at 9:30 AM or 4:30 PM.

Jacqueline’s superpower of choice? Flying, because she enjoys birdwatching! Although she loves both dogs and cats, she currently has neither. For movie nights, Jacqueline opts for comedies to keep the mood light and enjoyable.
