Arash is awesome. If you're here in the mornings or weekends, you already know this. He's smiling and friendly no matter what. He's an awesome partner to have in a WOD. I have literally never seen this guy in a bad mood, and if the WOD isn't to his taste, even his playful complaining is done with a smile. His wonderful wife and fellow athlete, Hoda, tells me that his great attitude is because United Barbell is his happy place. Well, we couldn't be happier about that.
Arash & I have a joke that I'm going to lock up the weights and require fingerprint access to get at them. Why? Because this guy is not afraid of pushing his limits. He's always trying for more, for heavier. His goal? To be an elite athlete. I love that - he's not messing around, he knows what he wants, and is taking steps to get there. This year, Arash wants to qualify for the Level 2 class and start learning that higher level performance from Coach Colleen.
Arash, your enthusiasm and dedication are admirable. We love seeing your progress. Keep embodying awesome!
