7th Anniversary

As I sit here writing this post, I can’t help by reminisce about the time gone by since opening CrossFit Moncton. The amount of growth and change is beyond measurable. There are only a handful that remember the days of working out in the grassy field behind a school (just Lance and Gillyon). In the summer of 2007, we had 70 people visit the school to learn about the wonders of CrossFit. Back then, there were no Reebok Nanos, Hylete compression shorts, or Rich Froning. Just you, your body and the dirt beneath your feet.

After the park, we moved indoors to 94 Rideout Street. The max class size was 6 (the gym was smaller than our current warm-up room). Once we busted out a few walls, we could hold up to 9! WOAH!

Seven whole years have gone by since I gave up my full time teaching position. I have trained over 1000 people since we started. And with every person that walks through the door, I learn something new.

With that said, thank you for being a part of this amazing journey. I have grown as a coach thanks to all of you. And for that I am very grateful.

Hope to see lots of you today for the Anniversary Hopper WOD and BBQ.

  1. Have an amazing time today everyone!!!! I’m thinking about you and wish I could be there. Happy anniversary CFM and Kevin for what you started! In just over a year with you, your team of trainers and this unreal community of awesome humans, my life has changed dramatically and I don’t want to think of life without all of these things.
    Have a great day!!!
