Athlete of the Month for September 2018

By September 11, 2018No Comments

We can’t believe it is already September.  That means we need to celebrate a new Athlete of the Month.  This month, the coaches nominated a woman who is primarily a 6:15am’er, but has been known to show up at 9am and noon.  She was a member of IA when we first opened, left for a bit, and has returned for the past year.  She might be small, but she is mighty.  You can see her at the gym struggling through workouts with a look of determination.  The Athlete of the Month for September 2018 is:
