Time to highlight one of our spectacular athletes! What makes up an Athlete of the Month? Not RX’ing every workout or lifting the most weight. This athlete exhibits consistency and a hard work mentality. Every time they come to the gym they have a good attitude and give their all. This person is also welcoming of others, helping make CFHD the best community there is. Each month we choose a different athlete and post some fun facts about them to help y’all get to know them better.
Congrats to Miss Tina Banjo! This girl has been crushing it since she joined H Dub. While it can be intimidating to walk into a gym where you don't know anyone, she did it with confidence because she made a decision to make her health a priority. She even signed up for the Open, despite having doubts, and she is killing the workouts. We have loved seeing her come out of her shell in class too. She is a staple to the 6:30am class! We love having you as part of the family, Tina. Keep making yourself a priority!
Name: Tina Banjo
