September 2017 Athlete of the Month – Niko Perdiou

Congratulations to Niko Perdiou, our September Athlete of the Month.  Over the past year Niko has done nothing but show consistency and bring a workmanlike approach every time he steps into the gym.  In this time, we have seen Niko transform himself into not only a better CrossFit athlete, but also a more confident, self-assured individual.  Never one to complain, Niko brings a can-do attitude to every workout and never backs down from the challenges we throw at him.  Congratulations Niko, it is well deserved.  Keep up the hard work!
