Member of the Month: Christian Pigues

Athletic Lab has so many amazing members it’s sometimes difficult to pick out just one. But that’s what we do each month as part of our Member of the Month feature.  We have members from all walks of life and all fitness and sport backgrounds. On any given day you can walk in to Athletic Lab and find professional athletes and teams from more than a half dozen sports, kids as young as 8 participating in our Lab Rats program, stand out high school athletes participating in our Scholastic Sports Performance Program or adults looking to get in the best shape of their lives in our Performance Fitness classes.
For the month of April we’ve selected Christian Pigues as our member of the month. Christian just completed a dominant indoor track and field season that was highlighted by winning the North Carolina State Championships in the 1,000m race in a blistering time of 2:30.44. Christian also boasted the fastest 800m time in the state (1:53.19). Both of these times rank amongst the top in the country. Off the track, Christian managed to break multiple Scholastic Sports Performance records including the 30m sprint and approach vertical jump.
