Yesterday we had an amazing time with friends at the Manchester skate park. What started out as kind of fluke (let’s go to the skate park with all our kids) turned out to work incredibly well. What a trip it was for me to be there skating with my best friend like we did when we were just a bit older than our kids are now. Watching our kids all playing together, rolling on boards, pushing strollers was just kind of a glimpse into the future. So excited to watch our kids grow up and expose them to all the passions we have with climbing, surfing, biking, skating, running around on the rocks exploring etc. We live in a awesome place and tis the season to make the most of it. I guess I’m just feeling really blessed right now to be finding that workable balance between all the things I love. It’s been really eye opening how much having a kid will force you to slow down in a good way and focus on what actually matters. As a result, my definition of fitness has certainly swung far to the durability side and success is very much defined by my ability to keep doing what I love actively so I can share that with Maz. Cheers to being the dad still skating the mini ramp!
*ALSO a reminder we are rolling out the new “Front Desk” Software tomorrow which we are really excited about. Karen will be at ALL the classes on Monday & Tuesday to work through any issues that may come up as a result of the switch. Changes to membership will go into effect tomorrow. Remember that if you have an Unlimited membership this allows you to come to as many CFCA classes as you’d like (Crossfit, Yoga, Team, Open Gym, Weightlifting, etc.,) as well as access to the rowing machines, climbing wall, and recovery work while classes are in session (when not in use obviously). Please take us up on this! In a way we are trying to bridge the gap a bit between a strict “class only” structure and say a MAC/ Y where you can come and go as you please. Some days you may not be feeling like a Crossfit class, but still might like to be active. If it’s pouring rain, your options may be limited so come in and use the gym. We’re trying to give you guys the most access in a simplified way so you don’t have to be confused about what “counts as a class” or have to pass on a workout that looks really interesting because you used up your monthly quota. We did keep the 2x a week membership cause some folks have other sports that take priority and use CF as supplemental exercise. If you have any questions you can email us or talk to Karen tomorrow. The first week or so might be tricky as we get accustomed to the new software but in the end it will be a lot simpler on our end and for all of you as well. Thanks for your patience!
