Quote of the Day:  “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.” – Henry Ford

The day is upon us and after tomorrow no more red doors sad I know, no running into each other on the floor or on your way out the door for the runs, no strangers from across the street asking what we are doing in there, and no more rubber mat pieces in places we don’t want!!  There has been so many great moments that have been engraved in our memory that we will take with us.  The tiny, little place on the corner of 4th and Front St has seen some amazing things happen and so many peoples lives changed for the better.  Where we walk in unsure about ourselves and walk out wanting the best for ourselves!! 

There will be two classes tomorrow 6am and 9am and after the 9am class tomorrow we will start the move. We could use as much help as we can get to try to move  all the equipment by Friday.  Yes I am being optimistic, but we’re CrossFit Allegiance and all we need to do is put a timer to the move and we will have our old gym moved in no time!!  Okay maybe the timer idea is a little crazy, but I feel we can have most if not all the equipment moved tomorrow.  I am super excited about this weekend, yes lots of work ahead, but going to be so much fun sharing it with such an amazing group of people.  See ya all tomorrow and don’t forget Saturday 9:30am will be at the new gym, 1921 United Way.  Come take a look at the new place and help us break it in the right way.  Hope to see all of you peeps there!!  

WOD:

Friday Fun Day:  So be creative with the equipment that will be available!!

Sign Is Up:)

Hello XFA family hope everyone had a great day!! There was some serious energy today in all the classes.  Keep up the hard work two more days left at the old gym.  Lets go out in flames and burn the place down!!  HAHA!!  Please don’t forget 9:30 Saturday class will be at the new facility so please join us and break the new gym in the right way!  The address is 1921 United Way hope you all can come and celebrate!!!  

I also wanted to say great job to those gutting out the last couple weeks of our Nutrition Challenge, I know it’s not easy and you could very easily throw in the towel but who wants to give up on their nutrition, something so important to how we look, feel, and perform.  Plus your eating habits and food choices shouldn’t stop or change because the challenge will be over.  Our hope is that we have a better understanding of what types of food our body works best with and continue to tweak and modify.  I am proud of all of you, continue to push and better your life because you are so worth it and deserve every penny!!  

One last thing to all the Newbies that have decided to take the chance and give CrossFit Allegiance a shot thank you.  We promise to make your experience something you will never forget.  We all welcome you with open arms and are here to support you along this journey.  Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.  Always love seeing new faces:)

WOW… can’t believe the move is less than three days away!!  So excited for whats to come of our future home.  But we could sure use some man muscles to help move all the equipment and heavy mats out of the old place and into the new.  We start the move at 10 am on Friday and will be working all day long.  There will be a free 9:30am Saturday class but it will be at the new facility!!  After class on Saturday we will continue to move and set up the new gym.  So if anyone can help and pitch in a hand that would be wonderful.  The more help we have the sooner we can open the doors.  If you have any questions please let us know.
