Tuesday Workout: Our Hero, Matt King

Matt King’s shoes hang above us in the gym to remind us that life is too short to not be passionate, to not love, to not try new things and to not greet everyday with as much passion as the next.

Matt tragically died a year ago today while riding his bike on Main Street.  We miss you Matt and we do this workout to celebrate your life.

Please feel free to come into the gym to workout with us, no matter who you are.
