You’ve all seen him working tirelessly on his weaknesses. He comes to open gym. He comes early and stays late to practice his gymnastics. Billy Vanel is our October Athlete of the Month! Billy always gives 100% to his workouts, often running to and from his house with Janell for each WOD. Although sometimes we have to reign him in a bit, Billy’s enthusiasm and hard work make him pleasure to have in class and a great motivator to his fellow athletes. This month in particular, Billy has been dealign with an injury and has shown patience and smarts while he lets it heal properly. It might be driving him crazy, but he’s got a good grasp on his training and the importance of taking care of himself!
