If you haven't made it in for a noon class lately, you probably haven't had a chance to work out with this week's Dose of Awesome, AJ. Over the last 6 months, I've seen AJ grow into his fitness, becoming a stronger athlete both mentally and physically. AJ brings humor, a spark of friendly competition, and good food chats to our noon squad.
This is not AJ's first time in the spotlight. He is an entrepreneur and business writer for numerous publications, including Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Inc. This young man has it all - brains, braun, charm, and a winning smile.
AJ, thanks for making our noons a little more shiny.
