And it begins…
Today, we open the doors at 3201 Santa Monica Blvd, our new home. We’ve been working around the clock to get the gym into shape, and I’m glad to say that we’re ready. It wasn’t without a bunch of long days, and lots of hard work – I’d like to thank a whole slew of people, so bear with me…
To the CrossFit LA Staff – Becca, Michael, Jonesy, Jennifer and Burch – at times it had the makings of a reality show… You all worked your asses off for the past week (and will for a few more). Your dedication, thoroughness and willingness to do whatever it takes to get the job done enabled us to be open today. Thank You!
To all the students who came to lend a hand over the past few weeks – thank you for simply showing up and doing whatever needed getting done – lifting, hauling, dragging, cleaning, organizing, drilling, scraping, moving, did I mention cleaning?… (in no particular order): Naz, Smidty, Julia A., Clark, Ron, Rebecca W., Westwood, Greg W., Vanessa, Eddie, Jordan, Gretchen, Matthew, Kathryn, Arman, Matty, Zeb, Mike, Cheri, Kiki, Ray E., Wes L., Zokai, Valerie, John W., Raffi, Bill J., Kevin D., Andy W., and probably a few more that I’m too exhausted and groggy to remember right now. All I know is, “It takes a village…”
