Our Story

Man, where do I start. Call me Ishmael. No, that’s not right. In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit. Nope. I am Sam. Sam I am. That’s probably most appropriate…

I started CrossFit in April 2009, Level 1 Certified by January 2010 and by March 2010, I was at my desk at a civil engineering firm comparing the pros of flying out to Miami that weekend for a CrossFit Running Seminar against the cons of of dealing with my project manager’s wrath because I hadn’t requested the time off two weeks prior like I was supposed to. That’s when I knew my life was about to get turned upside down.

If you would have asked me right then if I wanted to have two CrossFit locations in five years time and I would have heartily laughed in your face. I was content with a comfortable regular job but I knew that my calling to help as many people as I could was severely restricted by the three half walls that formed my cubicle. I started running classes at Briant Park in Summit around my regular 9-5 in June 2011 and was lucky enough for find a small 1400sf storefront in Springfield to open in Septeber of 2011. It was a former cabinet store. It needed a. lot. of. work.
