5 Years…

Today is a special day for the gym. It was 5 years ago today that the gym opened under its original name of Competitive Fitness. 5 Years,  many ups and downs, and a name change but we are still here. I want to thank all of you for being here and for your support of the gym and mostly your support of each other. This gym is just a bunch of heavy weights without the community you have all created.

I know that there are many of you who have been here for a lot of that 5 year span, but I do want to recognize the fact that we have 4 members who were here on day one and still are 5 years later. Keith, Ellen, Kay, and Krista were some of the very first members of Competitive Fitness ever had and are still here today.

From the bottom of my heart Thank You All. I look forward to seeing what 10 years looks like.

gymThe gym looks a little different after all that time. I think it looks better of course…CrossFit ages well.

  1. HAPPY CROSSFIT ANNIVERSARY!! I am so happy to be apart of a amazing family!! And, thank you Jason for being such a great coach and friend!!!

  2. Wasn’t I there on the first day? Maybe it was the second day. I don’t remember, but I do remember we brought Casen with us and he was 6 months old and he got sick and threw up all over someone who was holding him while we did the workout. I’m so glad Darin helped to get you the space and told me I should join and try it out. I’m truly proud of you and everything that has come of the gym. Happy anniversary! – Alyssa

  3. What an incredible journey!! I am very blessed to be a part of it! Thank you for everything!!

  4. cool man… i liked those red bars 🙂 new ones r better tho..

  5. I don’t attend your box, but I wish I did! I’m only about 3 hours away, one way. 🙂
    But seriously, I can tell your box, and the people in your box are special in the way you support each other and the tone of the messages. I wish you the best Crossfit Forever Strong! You make a huge difference, don’t ever forget that
    . Happy Anniversary!

  6. Congrats!! Although, I’ve only been a member for a few months, CFFS is by far the best gym I’ve ever been a part of. It’s a great community with great coaches who kick my butt every day to get better! Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of it and keep doing what you’re doing…

  7. Happy 5 Years!! I remember asking Liz if people really “liked” crossfit when I first started, she laughed and said Yes…I didn’t believe her….Now that it’s been 6 months, I am certain that I too have been converted from the LA Fitness type gyms to Crossfit Forever Strong! Thank you for having me! 🙂

  8. Happy Anniversary!! And Congrats Jason! 🙂

  9. Happy anniversary! Terry and I will be forever strong because you believed and achieved. Thank you for all your blood, sweat and tears.
