Meet Your Coach – Teddy Lilakos
We’ve been secretly sitting on this information for months now – waiting for the stars to align and everyone’s schedules to work out. And now the day has finally come and we are so excited to share with you all a new addition to our team of coaches…
So please welcome Teddy! If you (somehow) haven’t met Teddy yet let us catch you up to speed. Teddy may possibly be the nicest person you’ve ever met. He’s always wearing a smile ear to ear, even in the darkest part of a tough workout. When it comes to his fitness he lays it all out there, day in and day out. But far more important is his positivity and support for his fellow athletes. He might be one of the first people to finish a workout but he’s still the last one walking around cheering people on and doling out fist bumps.
We’re excited to have Teddy as part of our team as he transitions from athlete to coach. Teddy has always done things the right way here at CFE. He always works on his technique, challenges himself and is a model of consistency. We’re particularly excited to watch him apply those qualities to your experience as members.
In the coming months you’ll see Teddy assuming a greater and greater role in your classes as he completes our 8-week coaches’ training program. We hope you’ll welcome him to the group with as much excitement as the rest of the team has. And in the meantime read on to hear a little bit about him in his own words.
