Today was my first attempt at spreading the CrossFit Word around my department. A co-worker wanted to see what the hype was. All I can say is I wish I had my camera with me for this beautiful site.
Super-set each exercise for time. Reps are as follows: 21-15-9
Example: 21 reps of thrusters, jump onto the pull-up bar and knock out 21 reps, then 15 and 9 of both exercises. Stop the clock only after you finish the 9th pull-up.
Everything went well until he finished the 21st. rep on the pull-up...
That's when it all began. Jim had a vision to change lives...you see it in our mission statement hanging on the wall in the front lobby...
To do all the right things, for the right people, for the right reasons.
To treat everyone who walks into our doors as an athlete.
To teach our athletes new sports, athletic moves and exercises which will translate to daily activities.
To provide significant, measurable results through personalized training in a group setting through nutrition and proper human movement.
To dedicating ourselves to improving fitness for people of all shapes, sizes and abilities.
To bring out the athlete in you!
10 years, 3 months and 20 days later...we will be posting our final workout as CrossFit Michiana.
In this time we have met and worked with thousands and thousands of people from our bootcamps - Adventure, Elkhart General, Inova Federal Credit Union, Penn and MoRyde, to our students and sports teams - Street Kids Softball, Penn Boys Rugby, Penn Girls Rugby, Memorial Football, Bethel Basketball and Schmucker Fit Club - and our never ending circle of athletes that have passed through our doors on Dexter Drive and now on Faith Ave. Jim set out on a mission to change lives and he can lock the doors on Monday evening knowing that he has done exactly that. What he didn't realize was that he would create a family. People sharing a bond that you could only understand with people that were there doing the same thing you were doing, suffering like you were suffering.
If you have ever been an athlete of ours, please know that you have impacted our lives as much as you tell us that we've impacted yours. We are forever grateful for each and every person that has passed through our lives, some of you only a time or two and some of you for more years than we can count. Either way, you made us who we are today- we wouldn't be the same without knowing you.
Thank you to all of the people we have heard from past and present wishing us well in our future endeavors. We simply can't wait to see what God has in store for us next. We've already had doors opening that are just ready for us to go through.
So, this isn't good-bye - it's a hello to our new beginnings. We love you and wish you all health and happiness!
