Thank You For A Great 1st Year!
Wow, I wasn't expecting what I saw and experienced in the past 12 months. One year ago today, Casey, Dwayne and myself opened up CrossFit The Tracks. The three of us met doing CrossFit at another gym and we were confident we could build something that would give members a great experience, a place they'd love to call HOME. In my three years of doing CrossFit I had only experienced it as a member and only saw it from certain viewpoints. I loved what had happened to me and the friends I had gained.
But this past 12 months have showed me another side of CrossFit. I've been involved in many businesses, big and small. I've never been involved in a business that has such a positive impact on peoples lives. I've seen members lose massive amounts of weight, gain self confidence, accomplish goals they thought weren't possible and at the end off the day CHANGE THEIR LIVES!
Our members have built a really cool environment that many of us can't wait to get to every day, I know I can't. The togetherness, the comrade, is something I've never seen in a business. I saw it in a smaller scale as a kid in sports, but never in a business.
I've seen members do things they couldn't do months, weeks and a year earlier. What I found as an adult was the competitive spirit that has been reborn in me. There's always someone in class that I'm shooting to for and oddly enough that person is cheering for me to beat them. This was the reason I fell in love with CrossFit.
So with that I say THANK YOU to every member that has made CrossFit The Tracks what it's become in 12 months. YOU are responsible for what you see every day, YOU have created an environment of awesomeness and YOU are the reason we are all becoming better every day.
