We opened our doors for the first time on Monday this week. As the clocked showed 5:30pm, we were racing around trying to make sure everything was perfect. The sweat running down our backs wasn't from a recent workout, it wasn't from the last minute cleaning, it was from the realization that tonight was the night. Tonight was the night we would would open our doors to the public for the first time ever. We wanted it all to be perfect, but we also were nervous to see if anyone would join us for our Monday night WOD. To our amazement people did come, people did workout, and people liked it. It was an intense two hours for us, because we wanted to be sure everyone saw what we see, we wanted all those who walked through our doors to love CrossFit as much as we do. When we shut the doors that night, we both looked at each other and smiled. We maybe even teared up a little. We couldn't believe all the people who came through the door. We couldn't believe our friends who were there to support us. We were in awe.
Every night this week we have had the pleasure of meeting new people, learning about their fitness journey, and seeing how CrossFit could fit into their lives. We knew this journey was going to be amazing - but we had no idea how amazing. As we plan for our Grand Opening tomorrow, we can sweat a little less knowing that people will come, people will like it, and although CrossFit may not be for everyone, there are many people who will think it is Awesome - just like us!
