Member Spotlight: Troy Crawford

Hey Everyone! It's that time of the month again where we take a closer look at one of the members of our community. This time we take a seat with one of our more quiet folks and find out exactly who he is. You can usually catch Troy at the 9:30 AM class throwing obscene amounts of weight around and then over in POWL afterwards, keeping things tight. Troy is one of the nicest guys in the gym and he would be happy if the next time you see him, you walk up and say hello.
