December Gym “M.O.M.”
Introducing our Gym M.O.M (Member of the Month) for December 2020 … Katie Dickerson!
Since day one, Katie has walked through our doors and has straight up dominated, applying intensity to all we do, from Metcons to foam rolling!
She used that level of intensity to place 1st in our in-house competition back in October. If we had a few words to describe her to anyone, it would be “she just brings it”!
But don’t take our word for it, take it from the champ herself…
Read more about Katie below!
