April's Athlete of the Month

Time to highlight one of our spectacular athletes! What makes up an Athlete of the Month? Not RX’ing every workout or lifting the most weight. This athlete exhibits consistency and a hard work mentality. Every time they come to the gym they have a good attitude and give their all. This person is also welcoming of others, helping make H Dub the best community there is. Each month we choose a different athlete and post some fun facts about them to help y’all get to know them better!

Congrats to Kirsten! This girl is the definition of consistency. She has continued to make the commitment club month after month since joining H Dub. The only thing that may be more consistent than her attendance is her big smile that is always on display, even when Snatches are programmed.
