The Weekly Dose of Awesome

This week’s awesome has only been at UB for about six months and comes to us from La Grange, Georgia by way of LaLanne CrossFit.  He loves his burgers and meat.  Spin class isn’t so much his thing but he was a Les Mills Cardio instructor in a past life. I’ve been consistently impressed by the tenacity he brings to improving his form and technique.  Whether doing something new like muscle ups or something he’s been doing for years, like back squats, he is always looking to improve.  This really shows through in the virtuosity he displays in the skills he’s mastered. From one shaved head guy who lifts heavy and looks kind of mean but who is really a softie cat daddy to another, welcome to UB!
