The staff has voted! Winning Athlete of the Month for October 2020, is Allen Nichols. It's not uncommon to see Allen be the first one to the gym every morning. He's determined, driven, and always gives 110%. On top of this, he is an easy guy to get along with, is always kind to the staff, and has been a long time loyal member.
