Thumbs up Big CrossFit Story in Local Paper!

Hey everyone, our box, CrossFit Charlottesville w/f/s, just hit the cover of a local weekly paper. We've been open for 4 weeks, so this is really exciting exposure for us.

You can read the article here w/f/s. They quoted me a few times and I'm also on the cover with one of our athletes, Sarah. The overall take of CrossFit is awesome and I think it speaks well for the community.

Here's a teaser:

Indeed, it's not hard to believe that no interior designer was consulted before the opening of this gym. Along one white wall of the narrow CrossFit space, a former loading dock, are metal bars for pull-ups and several sets of gymnastics rings hanging from the ceiling. There are barbell bars and massive plates in a front corner, wooden boxes, medicine balls, and kettle balls-- weighted metal balls with a handle-- in a back room . Several rowing machines stand on end near the rear of the main space. That's about it-- and that's no accident.
Please feel free to leave comments about the article on The Hook's website and let me know your thoughts! We're super psyched.

Re: Big CrossFit Story in Local Paper!

Overall a very positive story. Small detail: Anderson was a former RANGER.

That article should help business. Good luck!!!
