July Gym “M.O.M.”
Introducing our Gym M.O.M. (Member of the Month) for July, 2021 … Dustin Koch!
It’s been long overdue for Dustin, who has completely transformed himself throughout his time with us at R3VIVE. Dustin exemplifies hard work and commitment, taking the work he puts in the gym, outside with him once he leaves the building.
This is something we constantly try to teach new and current members: While it’s important to show up and put the work in at the gym, what’s more important (in many ways), is how you conduct yourself when you’re away from us.
Aside from his work ethic, Dustin is one of the most considerate and helpful members we have. We’re proud to honor him with gym M.O.M. for July!
