February Member of the Month- Teddy Lilakos

By: 0

Just about a year ago Teddy dropped into CFE with his sister (and fellow CrossFit coach), Suzie. She put him through one hell of a workout. A workout so tough we didn’t think we’d ever see him again. But that’s because we didn’t know Teddy and how mentally tough he is. No matter the obstacle in front of him, Teddy will attack it at 100mph with everything he’s got. Teddy’s ability to push himself to the limits is what has made him more fit, but it’s his non-stop smiling and unrelenting positivity that has made him a huge part of the CFE community. Congrats, Teddy and thanks for sharing!
