Athlete of Month: February 2017

Congrats to Anthony Bosse, our February 2017 Athlete of the Month.

Anthony has been with us for just about a year, and during that time he has made a big impact on our gym community.  He constantly pushes himself to get stronger and more fit and this drive rubs off onto everyone around him.  We very much enjoy him being a part of Defiance, and are proud to have him as our February Athlete of the Month.
