January 2021 Athlete Of The Month

Meet Erik Arrington

Erik found the 926 family through one of his good buddies, ole Shane Harmon, and we haven't been the same since. Everyday since Erik joined us, he has always greeted us with a smile, positive attitude, and never missed an opportunity to tell us how sore he is (HAHA)! This guy is constantly pushing himself to learn new skills... we just have to make sure he stays safe in the process (if you know, you know). Erik has been a true joy to have as a part of the 926 family and has since brought his wife (Susan) and son (Grady) into the 926 Family as well. Thanks for supporting the family Erik!!

Why did you choose 926?
Visited a couple of others and didn't get good vibes. Shane Harmon introduced me to Zach at church and he invited me in for a few classes when 926 was opening. I felt comfortable and immediately new the coaches were there to teach and support my goals and extreme lack of mobility.

What is your favorite movement?
Snatch - Not sure why! It's just fun.

What is your favorite thing about 926?
The community and support that comes from it. Also the results I've gotten.

What advice would you give a newbie to 926?
Humble yourself and be prepared to work. You will find the support you need from the coaches and members to reach whatever your fitness goals are. And laugh a lot along the way.

Everyone be sure to give Erik a high five when you see him next!
