 In Workouts

There is a weather storm warning for tomorrow please check the site and Facebook prior to heading to the box in case I have to cancel due to conditions. 

1 Year ago today (1/16) we opened our doors for the first time.  It’s hard to imagine that when I picked up the keys from Chuck we had no members lined up, no idea if we would succeed, just an idea that quality coaching and establishing a great community would hopefully allow me the opportunity to make this my career at some point.  About 1 hour into this excursion BA showed up and bought Collin a gift certificate for his birthday.  That was the start of what would become the most hectic and best year of my life.  Thanks to POW!, LJ, Knight, Collin, Carmine and JWags for easing my mind by showing up the first night eager to kick ass and some of them showed up with a grin from ear to ear (Collin).  It truly has been an awesome year being able to grow from zero to almost 70 members.  All the firsts, PRs and all the  other experiences that I have been able to share with all of you throughout the year have been amazing.  Here’s to another year of hardwork, dedication and more memories. 

You guys are all awesome ,

Blake

    Congrats to BS, Jess and all the coaches! You guys have built an amazing CF community that I (and I’m sure everyone else will agree) feel extremely fortunate to be a part of 🙂

    Congratulations. That took a lot of courage to start from scratch and a lot of work to get to where you are now.

    It’s hard to believe its been a year since I first walked in to CFIC. It’s been an amazing year. Here’s to a strong community, great coaches, friends, and many more years of slamming bars. Congrats!

    And many thanks to my gorgeous wife – without her buying that gift certificate I probably would have never joined CFIC

    Congrats and thank you to the CFIC community. You all have no idea how much you have improved my life. It has been almost one year since my last seizure and I have been able to quit taking 15 pills a day. My family and I want to thank the coaches and the CFIC community for making this all possible.

      That’s fantastic! I’ll never forget our first class together where we had 3 Jens! It wasn’t long before we all had pretty sweet nicknames, though!

    Happy one year anniversary CFIC! Go figure that driving by CFIC and saying ill try this Crossfit thing would lead to one of the best decisions I have ever made. It’s been great being part of such a great community and making such great friends. Besides, where else can you look as cool in a pair of Tony Fu blue pair of shoes?
    I especially want to thank Blake, Jess, Tony, Keith and Lorne. Let’s keep it going!
