Alyssa Salmon is the very definition of a hard worker. If you’ve had the opportunity to witness her in action during her GRIT session or in class you know that she enters the training zone like no one else. She has inspired her fellow GRIT team to add more weight to their bars or to get a few more reps in before time runs out. Alyssa is such a positive force in this world, her coaches and instructors constantly talk about how great it is to have her in class. She has also inspired her sister and friends into a healthier lifestyle, which makes her a real force to be reckoned with in the battle against globesity. We love Alyssa, we think you will too.
