It’s hard to believe that we’re already in August and that it’s almost time to start back to school. It’s still hot outside and just doesn’t seem possible that fall is almost here. But as we say goodbye to one month, we say hello to another, and of course to a new athlete of the month. This month’s athlete brings us someone who is consistent in attendance, has a positive attitude, works hard, and pushes herself everyday. Please join us in congratulating this month’s athlete of the month, Denise Putnam. We are so proud of you and your progress and enjoy watching you grow. Congratulations!

Last month we told you how hard Tadd and Dwayne work at the box and all of the time and effort that they put in to making things great. What we didn’t tell you was that they’ve officially secured the space next-door and will now be expanding sometime in September! A special thank you goes out to rockstar members Sean Kort and Brittany Ridden for donating an entire day to get up at 5am and drive to Columbia to get more mats for the new expansion. Also, thank you to everyone who helped move them once they got back! 

Congratulations to Laura and Josh as they competed in the American Open Series Weightlifting Meet down in Miami! They did a wonderful job and we are so proud of them both! Congratulations to Laura for winning Gold in her weight class! 

Another big congratulations goes out to Debbie and Britteny as they competed in The Tigertown Throwdown this past weekend and placed second! We are so very proud of you guys! Congratulations! 

Are you competing in a competition coming up? Are you looking for a partner for an upcoming competition? Do you know of any great competitions coming up that you want to let other box members know about? Let us know! Someone is always looking to compete and we always want to cheer you on every step of the way! Because as always, we roll deep!
