Our athlete for the month of April: Andreas Draxl! At least 3 times per week, this 40-year-old + athlete is on the mat training BJJ. His determination and overall fitness make for a true role model for all members of the gym. If someone were to say that being 40 means you are too old, or that it’s too late to learn a new hobby then Andreas is here to prove you wrong. He is in better form than most teenagers! As a small token of appreciation for his motivation and hard work he was rewarded a Garage Combat rash guard by head coach Antonio Stanic.
