Devon is one of the most humble and friendliest guys you will ever meet! Do not be fooled by his competitive nature … Devon is a big teddy bear at heart and will always throw you a smile and high five! He is an inspiration to us all and a testament of what hard work, commitment, dedication & grit looks like. Devon is always eager to learn and participate in community events inside and outside the gym. Not to mention he has been crushing his nutrition and lifting PRs, despite having an unpredictable travel schedule sometimes. We are beyond blessed to have Devon in our 6s family & we cannot wait to see what the next year will bring!
