We are ready to release the doves as we introduce our June Athlete of the Month… 🕊👏 Mike Waldmann 🕊👏
Mike has been with us since the VERY beginning of Tides. He was driving by and saw a tractor tire out in the parking lot and wondered exactly why it was there. And he figured out exactly why, as well as how fun it is throwing some weight around. Mike has always been so helpful with new members and always makes everyone feel welcome. He encourages others to better themselves. Mike even has his youngest son following in his footsteps. It’s humbling to see the hard work Mike puts in to better himself and to see the confidence that fuels it.
