February's Athlete of the Month
Published March 5, 2018
You’ve probably seen Nate casually throwing 275# over his head or walking around the gym shirtless and shoeless after a post workout shower. Some of Nate’s hobbies included, shopping for female shorts, listening to music at extremely low volumes while exercising, dressing up as his favorite fast food dining establishment’s manager and cooking up some delicious smoked jerky. That being said, Nate is clearly one of the stronger athletes in the gym. Nate’s consistency in the gym, commitment to the programming and willingness to put in some additional effort is a great example of how the strong can get even stronger.
