Peppa

“Monday through Friday you can find Peppa at the 5:30 class like clock work.  Even when I tell him to take a rest day because his back is acting up, he chooses to fight through the pain.  This determination might not be the best approach to longevity, but it’s a testimony to his commitment.  He is the first to welcome newcomers and always willing to lend a helping hand.  These are a few reason why I choose to spotlight Peppa this month.”  Coach Hutch

“Peppa has been with Breed before we even opened our doors in Ridgewood.  He watched us in the backyard and then joined us once we started doing Park WODs.  He rarely misses a class during the week and usually hangs out til closing.  I select Peppa for Athlete of the Month because of his loyalty.”  LizFiggie
