Athlete of the Month for June 2017

June is almost here here!  The beginning of each month brings so much to Industrial Athletics.  It is time to announce our Athlete of the Month for June 2017.  This member is a regular at 6:15am class.  She started a year ago and has made huge progress since her first Fundamentals Class.  She stuck it out and has since developed a beautiful squat and olympic lifts.  She participated in our Open Team Competition, is always a smiling face at social events, and is a big participant in our Coach’s Corner program.  She also designed our new IA Gear Logo.  The Athlete of the Month for June 2017 is:
