Tony Makhoul

April 2018

Tony joined the CGC in April 2011 and quickly became a dedicated member within the CGC community over the years. His passion for staying fit and his friendly nature are evident the moment you start to chat with him. Tony's workouts usually include lifting weights and training his core using the TRX suspension system in the Fitness Centre. He understands that to get results, you need to put in the work — a concept that not only fuels his motivation to stay healthy, but one he also uses to successfully run his businesses. Though admittedly a workaholic, Tony is also family man and committed CGC member.
