February Athlete of the Month
Congratulations to Tony Diguglielmo for being named February Athlete of the Month. Tony consistently pushes himself, he is fun to have in class (sometimes he shows us his dance moves mid workout), and he makes class more enjoyable for everyone there. Thank you Tony for making our gym a better place.
