Danny Pinkerton

The man, the myth, the legend.  Danny is the backbone behind one of the most, if not the most, important factors in a fitness facility...cleanliness.  Danny works early mornings to ensure Fusion Athletic Club is the cleanest gym in town and everything is working properly.  He is a jack of all trades and is always looking for something to fix or clean.  He is the reason Fusion Athletic Club looks the same as it did on our opening day, to one year in.  Thank you, Danny!  We appreciate you!!
