CrossFit Crew:

We wanted to stop for a second and thank everyone on this discussion board. We started holding group workouts at a local park with just Troy and I. Things picked up and we opened our facility in Columbus, OH in June. We covered our overhead in the first month which would not have been possible without soaking up all of the lessons learned on this site.

We have not done any advertising, everything has been "word of mouth". This has truly been a great experience and the journey has only just begun.

Special thanks to Doug Chapman of Hyperfit USA, Dave Picardy of North Shore Crossfit & Mike Latch of Valley CrossFit. I spent a great deal of time picking their brains prior to starting up. I strongly encourage anyone that is thinking of starting up to have a few mentors during your process.

None of this would have been possible without Coach, Lauren and the HQ crew. Thanks for letting us join the fitness revolution!
