Cheers To 5 Years


Shew, what a ride it’s been! 5 years has passed in a flash. It has not always been easy, but it has been worth it. Days like today allow me to sit back and reflect on how far we have come. I get so busy running the business, it’s easy to forget where we started.



I can remember when we first opened, all the “what kind of gym are you opening?“, “Where are or where are all your machines?”, “It’s in the garage?”. I don’t remember many people having much positive to say about our opening.



Being new to the area and really having no idea what I was getting myself into, we signed our first lease to open the gym two months before we moved to Winchester and had only driven around town a couple of times.



As I’ve said many times before, We moved locations three times in three years. Anytime we had extra money we always invested back into the gym with new equipment, believing that our environment and atmosphere was really important to our success.



We are extremely proud of where we started and where we are. Our first gym was 1800 ft.² with zero members. We moved to Winchester without knowing a single soul. Our current facility is 10,000 ft.² and we train about 200 people a week between our Crossfit, personal training, kids classes, and athlete strength & conditioning programs.

I want to thank all of the people who have ever been to our facility, tried a class or been a member. Everyone has had an effort in shaping who we are today. Our members make our facility first class and our a huge selling point of our programs. Thank you!!



Also to my wife and my family. Thank you for your love and support. The gym requires a lot of time and odd hours. Without their love and support this would not be possible.
