May- Member of the month
Congratulations to Matt Roberts- our May Member of the Month! We enjoy spotlighting one member each month to let you see a different side of them. With the ever growing community at CFL, we want you to feel like you know people from all hours of the day! MOM gives us that chance, to ask questions, hear your funny answers, and celebrate the community that makes CFL such a great place
If you don’t already know Matt, he is the tall guy that ALWAYS has a smile on his face. Though he has incredible brain power (engineering guy), he can have a conversation with just about anyone. He very recently got married to CFL’s Stephanie Roberts (Diaz), down in Paso Robles on March 18, 2017. He is incredibly genuine, and a great friend. We are lucky to have you at CFL Matt!

What does CFL mean to you?: CFL is just good people. I’ve met so many of good friends there and am lucky enough to see them on a regular basis, both in and out of the gym. Early work mornings make going out almost impossible on weeknights, so most of hte time CFL is my only social outlet throughout the week. So much of the motivation to even go comes from the people I get to see there. I’m beyond grateful for all the relationships that have come through the gym and it has definitely changed my life for the better. I did meet my wife there after all…
Thank you for being the MOM for May, Matt!
