Matt is your Member of the Month! The first time we had the pleasure of having Matt come try out Croga was during the Helen for Hounds event. He came in to help the pups and gave his 100% effort! He was a little tired after Helen and that was when I knew he would definitely be back!
Matt is now an integral part of the 4:30 pm crew and most of the time he rides his bike to and from the gym, making every class a little bit harder. Matt is also a very important player in the Energy Drink Taste Test Team. If you are wondering what energy drinks taste the best, he is one of the board members of the group.
Matt has been a pleasure to have at the gym and continues to make huge progress this year. He comes in every day and gives his best effort and never anything less. He is an extremely nice and welcoming guy with a great attitude. We are extremely lucky to have Matt join our gym and be such an amazing Croganite. If you haven't met Matt yet, head on into a 4:30 pm class or come to a Croga event, he will probably be there as well.
Congratulations Matt, you're the Man!
