It’s our 1st Birthday! So in true CrossFit fashion, we are having a CrossFit birthday party complete with a CFF Birthday WOD!
Our birthday party will be on the 28th June with our birthday WOD kicking off at 0830hrs. No CrossFit birthday party would be complete without presents so there will reebok gift vouchers up for grabs as prizes for current members, membership discounts for new members and more, much more! We will have drinks, birthday cake and some snacks after the birthday WOD so bring a plate to share, something to drink and help us make it a birthday to remember. Don’t worry about your fitness levels for our CFF birthday WOD as this WOD will be completed as a team so everyone will be able to take part and complete it. Don’t be shy, come down and join in, it’s a great chance to get to know some of the members that you might not usually train with.
We still have to pinch ourselves when we think about organising our first birthday party and CFF Birthday WOD! We can’t believe how fast this year has gone! It only feels like yesterday we were rushing around, organising last minute equipment, wondering if the flooring would arrive on time, working out how we were going to hang the Furnace logo at the back of the box and hoping beyond hope that people would turn up to the open day, fall in love with the place and want to sign up!
By the end of the first day we had 17 brand new members and we were off and running! In our infancy, not a single one of our new members had ever done CrossFit before or any olympic lifting. We only had one pull up rack, 4 rowers & were only running classes 4 days a week!
Today we run classes 6 days a week and up to 5 times a day. Our community base has increased 5 fold, we have trebled our equipment lists, our members are all becoming extremely competent CrossFitters with a great understanding of community spirit, commitment to each other and their training, we have had our first CrossFit Open as a box and 12 athletes competed in their first local competition! It’s just been a year full to the brim with new things happening and new goals reached!
We have members whose goals range from weight loss and toning to increasing muscle mass and strength to guys and girls who are doing CrossFit to compliment their other sports they play and CrossFit gives them the edge they need on the field and in the ring. Its been fantastic to see the gains you have all been making towards your goals.
On the coaching side at the box, we are continuously overwhelmed with your support of us as coaches and the trust that you place in us to make sure that you are reaching your goals and potential. We couldn’t be prouder of every one of you and there is nothing more rewarding for us than seeing our athletes get a new PR, finally master a new skill or even just being able to Rx a WOD for the first time! We are also excited to have Craig join the coaching team. Craig completed his Level 1 trainers Certificate earlier in the year and has started his traineeship at CrossFit Furnace run through the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers to obtain his cert 3 & 4 in fitness ( personal training).
With this much happening and more before our first birthday, we can’t wait to see what is in store for us next year!! We hope that you can all come down and help us make this 1st Birthday WOD and Birthday party one to remember!
