August Athlete of the Month – Willie Brown

By: 0

When Willie first joined CFE we said “wow this guy can really move. If he can get a little stronger he’ll be a force to be reckoned with.” The good news is he’s still really fast… Just kidding Willie, you know that we love you. So much so that we’d like to nominate you as CFE’s August Athlete of the Month! And here’s why….

Willie is a hard worker. Every. Single. Day. He comes to the gym with a smile on his face and always gives 100% effort. But more than his own effort he’s supportive of others. He encourages his fellow athletes even when he hasn’t yet completed his own workout.  To put it simply; Willie is an all around stand up guy and we’re grateful to have the opportunity to work with him. Read on to learn a little more about Willie in his own words…
