This Saturday we are having our Anniversary celebration/ Thanksgiving Day Shindig. In the fall of 2008 I was working my tail off as an athletic trainer, and personal training as a side job. I had been personal training for about 8 years, and was very good at what I was doing. I had stumbled across CrossFit online but at that point didn’t really understand what they were trying to do. Then I went to CrossFit certification and my whole world changed??
With my background and knowledge, I was blown away with their approach to fitness. It fit within my paradigm of training athletes and it was an awesome well packaged approach to fitness. When I got home, I was so excited I told my wife we were going to open a gym?.
That went over like a lead balloon, so we started small. We started out with 3 people in an 800 square foot space. In three months we had 30. We were blown away. By November of 2009 we needed to move into a bigger space and that is where we are currently.
Fast forward to today. We have gone from 800 square feet to 6000 square feet. 3 members to 160 amazing people, and continually growing. It has been an amazing ride, and I’m not able to do what I love as a full time job. We also have a place where others can do what they love full time. Most importantly though, we are changing lives every single day.
I am so thankful that you guys are members of our crazy world. Thank you so much for allowing us to create positive momentum in your life. I know in my heart one day we will hit our vision of changing 1000 lives daily, and I know we can change Memphis.
Please join us on Saturday for some awesome food and fellowship. This is our thanks from us to you!
Have a great week!
