(Repost from Saturday; want to make sure you all see it!)
About 18 months ago, I decided to pursue a dream of opening a school of fitness in Glendale. CrossFit had irrevocably changed my life for the better, and so I knew that it was through CrossFit's methodology that I was going to have the best opportunity to positively impact others' lives. My vision was of a place in which the focus on the individual athlete was paramount and that each person's goals could be met by providing a place where coaching, nutrition, motivation, and community intersect. Now, after over three months of classes, I believe we are well on our way to building a fantastically vibrant community of like-minded individuals focused on making themselves better and helping their fellow members doing the same.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support and help of my family and friends, each of whom offered nothing but words of encouragement and a helping hand when needed. Also at the center of our success are our two wonderful coaches, Armen and Chris, who have both worked tirelessly to make CrossFit 818 one of Southern California's premiere fitness centers.
In order to officially celebrate our opening, formally introduce ourselves to the community, and offer thanks to our members, friends, and families for their participation in making this dream come true, we will be holding a Grand Opening and Open House on Saturday July 9th, 2011 starting at 12 noon. There will be food, refreshments, and great times to be had!
Thank you all again and we look forward to seeing you all in a couple of weeks!
