October 2019 Athlete Of The Month

Meet Alex Creasor…

Alex got talked into attending one of our Saturday workouts by the one and only Coach Stephanie. Comes to find out, they're neighbors! Once Alex dropped into a few classes, she was hooked. She quickly picked up on all of the movements and has been non-stop growing ever since. Having Alex in class is a true pleasure based on her coach-ability, attitude and overall personality. We enjoy having Alex as a part of the 926 family. Be sure to give her a high five when you see her!
