When I say the words "strong like ox," there's probably a few UB athletes that pop into your mind. We have an entire stable full of strength-biased athletes, and this man definitely falls into that category. He squats a whole lot, and probably out-deadlifts you by an order of magnitude.
Sass, or Ryan if you're feeling fancy, has only been with us since October, but since his onramp he has been a dedicated member of the morning crew, surprising us recently when he showed up for a noon class during a work-from-home day. Sass may not be the fastest runner, and burpees may not be his favorite, but he never shies away from the dreaded cardio, instead embracing the suck and making sure he completes every singe rep. DNF means nothing to this strong man.
I love seeing Sass work on his weaknesses while thoroughly enjoying the benefits of his strength. It's awesome to see his humble approach to bettering himself and the gainz he reaps as his rewards. Sass - you are awesome!
