Devin moved to Toronto in the spring of 2018 and has been a welcome addition to 6S ever since!
He originally began functional fitness as off season training for hockey, but found it was the people, environment, and self competition that kept bringing him back! His hard work ethic, positivity, and enthusiasm continue to inspire members and coaches alike.
We are lucky to have Devin as part of our 6S community, and look forward to seeing him continue to work towards his fitness goals, and bring his energy to classes.
Did you know Devin is getting married in September to his inspirational fiancee?! So exciting!
