September Gym “M.O.M.”
Introducing our Gym M.O.M (Member of the Month) for September 2020 … Corey Charpentier!
Aside from being able to fully load the bar from end to end whenever it’s deadlift day, Corey is one of our most engaged, intense athletes. You better believe that us coaches need to be prepared to take on his insightful questions, which in return makes us better!
Read more about Corey and what he brings to our community. Also be sure to request to be added to his Christmas call list 😉
