As we are working long hours to get everything done before we officially open April 1, I am reminded that building a gym and a community is much the same as being an athlete. We need to remember that we are always getting Better Than Yesterday (a sign that I have hanging above my back door that I see every time I walk into my house – a sign you will see shortly at the gym too.)
We may have a long way to go, but we need to look back and remember how far we have come. What we are doing is not nothing. It’s something. Every day we are making progress – in getting the gym ready, in meeting new people to be part of our new community, and as athletes training our bodies. As an athlete, remember that on those days where things seem to not be going well.
Wall ball targets ready to be used!
We got really involved in spray painting those new wall ball targets for everyone’s wall ball enjoyment – with the green and orange we look ready for St. Patty’s Day partying!
We have decided to color code our equipment. Orange is typical Men’s Rx, Green is for typical Women’s Rx, and Yellow is for the Scaled options. (I may suffer from some minor OCD tendencies…)
Gun racks, bars and plates! (That silver bar in the right corner is Betsy – she was our very first Oly bar. We had to duct tape over the center knurling so she didn’t scratch us all up. She was a good bar and we loved using her in our backyard and garage gym over the last couple years. You will see her hung in a place of honor in the gym as a reminder to us of where we started.)
Colored coded wall balls!
We have spent long hours and late nights at the gym the past 2 weeks. Our 3 kids have been great helpers – they painted the 2 kids’ rooms yesterday, then feel asleep in a pile of towels…
We are nearing a big milestone of 100 Facebook Likes – that is very exciting for us and the first of many steps on this journey.
Spread the word, tell your friends, share with your co-workers. Once we hit 100 Likes we will randomly draw from all the people that Like our page and that person will receive some fun swag!
Thank you all so much!
Our schedule for the rest of March will be a bit fluid. We are trying to get as much done as we can to be ready for our official opening date of April 1st, but also accommodate the really awesome response we’ve had to our new gym. We have had several people attend every class we’ve held this month – that is amazing! We are so excited for all the new members we have and all the people coming through to check us out. We definitely want to keep having as many classes as we can!
For this week, we will have classes Tuesday and Wednesday at 6pm, Saturday at 2:00pm and Sunday at 12:30pm.
NO CLASSES Thursday or Friday this week as we really work on getting the flooring and Olympic Lifting Platforms installed.
We will always try very hard to make sure that any schedule changes are posted on Facebook, show up in the WOD feed and reflected accurately on our on-line calendar located on the Schedule page of our web site.
Thank you so much for your patience, understanding, and support.
There is SO much good stuff going on at CrossFit Recursive! We have had our first full week working on the gym full time – which have been long and fulfilling 14 hour days. We have finished painting the main workout space AND painted our logo on the wall.
We have started to grow our community little by little and have people taking advantage of both of our Early Membership Options.
We’ve also had people take advantage of our free trial classes weeknights at 6:00pm, Saturdays at 10:00am or 2:00pm, and our 2014 CrossFit Games Open Workouts on Sundays at 12:30pm. (See our Schedule page. If these times don’t work for you, please contact us to schedule a different time – we definitely want to meet you!)
We are posting WODs daily on our site and Facebook. We have a tentative schedule posted for March and April. As we get more members we will gladly add more classes and Open Gym time to meet members’ needs.
Our pull up rig will get installed Monday. The flooring and Olympic lifting platforms will follow shortly. The goal is to have the main workout space up and running by the end of next week. Then we can start working out in there!
After the main floor is all set up, we will focus on getting the smaller workout room outfitted. Then we will move on to the upstairs rooms and get those ready for all the kiddos!
We are so fortunate and so excited to have had such a great response so far and so much interest in our new and growing community. Please consider joining us for a workout – we’d love to meet you!
Did you know that some insurance companies offer you a rebate for gym memberships?
Unity – Fitness First
GHC – Exercise for Excellence
PPlus – Good Health Bonus
Some Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) will reimburse you for gym memberships as well, if submitted correctly.
We want to make it easy and accessible for you to take care of yourself. If there are any other insurance company programs we can be a part of, please let us know.
And contact your insurance company to see what they can offer you!
WOD with us this Sunday at 2pm! (No cost to you – bring your friends, families and neighbors!)
Come a bit early to fill out some paperwork, tour the facility and meet the coaches.
Our facility is still in need of some TLC for sure, but come anyway, see where we are at, what we are starting with, and where we are going!
Contact us with any questions. We are looking forward to meeting all of you!
We have keys and will start holding some impromptu workouts as we can! The first one will be this Sunday at 2pm. Come a bit early to get the tour, meet the coaches, and sign waivers. Workout will start promptly at 2pm.
The building is still getting some work done. We are tearing out (but recycling) the floating wood floor and will then mount the pull up rig and install the rubber flooring (90 mats at 100# each – that’s 9000 pounds of flooring!) We hope to have all this done in the first 2 weeks of March. All of the equipment has been ordered – you can expect top of the line equipment from Again Faster and Rogue. Then we should be fully equipped to hit those WODs hard.
Take advantage of early Membership Options – we have 2 available and they include a lot of great extras. Founder’s Club and Cornerstone Members will get a specially designed, one of a kind t-shirt with your member number on the back. The coveted #1 is taken – who wants to be #2? See our web site for details. Contact us with any questions or to get signed up.
Also note that after talking to some early prospects/members we have decided to include the Open Gym Membership with the Unlimited CrossFit Membership at no extra charge. It looks like we will be able to have Open Gym times 7 days a week. We really do value your opinions and want to make this the best community possible.
We can’t fulfill all requests, but we will always try to do what we can. With that, we also seem to have some interest in Olympic Lifting platforms and are looking into having some designated Oly stations, probably not actual raised platforms, but wood floor spaces.
If you have any other suggestions or requests – now is the time! Please let us know what we can do for you as we develop and grow our Recursive Community.
After careful consideration and deliberation, we have decided to carry Stronger, Faster, Healthier (SFH) instead of Danny Broflex Pump Juice.
I know the statistics are staggering and 95% of the surveys say that only 5% of the people using Danny Broflex Pump Juice don’t have diarrhea, but SFH is chock full of important nutrients you need to recover from your workouts, including protein, creatine, glucosamine, and chondroitin and more!
We’re giving away a FREE CrossFit Recursive t-shirt for the best caption – 3, 2, 1 Go!
