I’ve taken a little walk down memory lane and for many, the box has just become a part of our life, who we are, our daily routine if you will. For some of newer members it might be fun to see where it all started 3 years ago. Here are a few of our previous posts that you can check out.
A year ago today, One year in the making, I remember…, Two years ago today

My thoughts and feelings as we close the third year of being open and enter our fourth year, have really centered on the mental side of CrossFit and even more specifically, commitment to the process. The list of people that have come and gone is long.  But I know, that those that have come, stayed and changed their habits, have seen the rewards of their hard work. The true measure of an individual is determined by what you can’t see – the intangibles. Anyone can measure height, weight, physical strength, speed…but you can’t measure commitment, persistence or the instinctive muscle in your chest, your HEART! That’s where the true work begins. Understanding what you want to achieve and knowing what you’re willing to endure to get it. Keep your eye on your prize, let the haters hate and don’t stop working for what you want most.  Thanks to all, new and old alike for making out community great!  You are why we do what we do.

Great stuff happening at the BOX this week. TON’s of PR’s on DT on the 17th. Great work everyone. Saturdays WOD will be at 7:30 am.

We officially graduated our first foundations class, so look for these great new team members to be joining in a regular class soon!  Congrats to this fantastic group.  They’ve worked hard and we be a great addition to our CrossFit family. Don’t forget our next foundations class starts on the 20th.  This is really the best and safest way if you’re nervous about joining to start CrossFit.

And Last but not least CONGRATS to Gina and Brandon Spackman on the arrival of their new baby two days ago. (in case you missed her Gina’s last WOD at the box was less than 36 hours before delivery!) It’s a girl and she is 7 lb 6 oz and 19 inches long.  Mom and Baby are both doing well.

Compare your previous time here.

Brandi came in on the 16th to get this WOD out of the way.  She set a PR and crushed the old female box record by nearly a min.
