Introducing... our NEXT Top Dog!

Tim Ward!!!

Tim is a consistent face at 7am every morning. He is often training alone at that time yet that doesn't hold him back. Tim comes in with an awesome attitude after working late into the previous night as a Cook County Correctional Officer. Once Tim finishes the 7am class he heads home to take care of his daughter who is an active toddler. Tim could find several excuses not to come and train as often as he does. However he is motivated and determined. He has improved significantly since joking Dog House. Great job Tim all the coaches are impressed by your hard work and dedication to improving your overall fitness.
