Our Athlete of the Month Program

We strive to recognize the great efforts our members make in achieving their goals, but we also place a high value on intangible contributions to our community. Each month, we select a member that not only has been killing it in the gym day in and day out, but one that truly builds up the spirit of community that we hold dear. 

Winners are awarded with tokens of gratitude and recognition from other local small businesses in Glen Ellyn:

Irene Brady May 2016

I truly believe that health is so important and is key to a fulfilled life.  I have been asked many many times "how old are you?" Are you 20 or 30 something?  "you must workout."  "do you lift weights?" On and on... It's very flattering to think people think of me that way. But it doesn't come without a price. 

Training. And eating healthy is the reason. 

Don't get me wrong I think I have good genes too but I work hard on my life.  Train 6 days a week and eat well. 

Now that I've found CFGE, I finally found a gym that has can take me to that next level of fitness and health

So thank you

I've learned so much already and it's been only been 8 months, I'm looking forward to the future 

1.  Would you rather have more money or more time?

Definitely more time, time to spend with loved ones and fulfill my dreams, money means nothing. 

2.  What comes on your perfect pizza?

Awww man I love pizza. Sausage, spinach, and mushrooms all day long.... Deep dish of course

3.  You are a familiar face at the 530a class.  What keeps you motivated to get up and start the day at CFGE?

Having 4 kids and a business is the only time, before they wake up.  Sets the tone for my day, awake , feeling strong, and ready for anything that may come my way. If I dont get it in , it doesn't happen!

4.  How many haircuts do you think you have given?  

That is a trick question, woah. It's a lot.  Approximately 100,000 and I'm far from retirement
