August'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!
Ryan is for sure "Mr. Consistency". However, his attendance is not the only consistent thing about him, he is also consistently one of the nicest dudes in the gym. Always happy to see you and ask how you are. His willingness to learn has allowed him to develop skills, like the kipping pull-up and toes-2-bar, rather quickly. This honor is well deserved. Keep it up, Ryan!
