Huge congratulations to Duncan Oliver for winning our member of the month in November 2018! Duncan has really thrown himself in at the deep end since starting at Access Morley, but in a good way. He’s been extremely consistent with training hitting the 5:30am Class with the crew. Scaling workouts to allow him to progress nicely, all while staying injury free. Learning his skills he’s improving at an awesome rate and soon to have most of his skills down. All the while doing it with a smile on his face and finishing to help others through! It’s always great to see such a big lifestyle change in our members, and always a pleasure working with you.
