SEPTEMBER MEMBER OF THE MONTH: TAZ
Say goodbye to summer because Fall is here, which means another month has flown by and it is time to recognize and pass the belt to our September MOTM: Dr.Altaz Madhavji, or as we all know him TAZ!
TAZ* is long overdue for this recognition. *( I feel like his name needs to be written All Caps because he is probably yelling when you see him or making you yell if you have ever been treated by him at his clinic) His energy at 6am in the morning is probably rivalled only by small children, dogs going for a walk, or a normal human being on about 12 shots of espresso.
He is a consistently hard worker, positive member in the community and most importantly someone many of us have come to call a good friend. From a coaching standpoint he is an extra set of eyes in watching for movement dysfunction and anytime I have a question outside of my knowledge base he is always there to educate and help. Thanks for all you do in and outside of the gym treating us and getting us back to exercising when we are banged up and for always bringing so much energy to your workouts. As much as we hate you being that loud in the morning it is a bit infectious.
