Quote of the Week 2-21-2022
“Motivation will change your day. Discipline will change your life.”
Welcome back friends! I am happy to announce that we have entered our lucky 13th year of operations which marks a DOZEN years as a registered CrossFit Affiliate! I have stuck with CrossFit for a long time, through the good and the bad, the ups and the many downs. Having trained competitors and Athletes in all different modalities I still believe that the CrossFit methodology can help the highest number of people achieve their fitness goals.
While I remain loyal to this idea I also recognize that the world has changed significantly since I first started in a tiny 800 square foot box. The “early adopters” of CrossFit have since found their homes or maybe even moved on to new fitness endeavors. For well over a decade I’ve watched other gyms open and close, I’ve seen the new kids on the block try lots of flashy things, I’ve witnessed lots of spots pivot, and pivot, and pivot again. I believe the reason we have been able to thrive longer than any other local gym is that we have remained true to my initial premise- deliver world class fitness in a welcoming and fun environment. Train elite Athletes and train grandmothers. Treat everyone as an equal. Pursue excellence always while remaining inclusive. Put the Community and Coaching FIRST- above the facility or profit margin or any other fads that may come along. Remain mindful of the needs of others while helping as many people live lives that they love in bodies they are proud of. This week, I want to personally thank you all for being the living proof that our original hypothesis is true. Your support is evidence that this experiment was and remains a worthwhile venture.
With all that being said… The OPEN IS UPON US!
