1000 and counting

This is the 1000th post for CrossFit Moncton. That’s a whole lot of workouts and a ton of information. Also, there’s been scores of people that have walked through the door. Some have come and gone. Many have stayed. All have left a memorable impression on me.

I was called foolish for leaving behind a secure teaching position to start my own business, but it’s one of the best decisions I ever made. I’m grateful to have met all of you and continue to have fun every day. I could not imagine a better way to spend my days than training people to become better at life.

Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to making another 1000 posts for your pleasure!

    This from CFHQ

    Congratulations on your 1000 posts Kevin! I only wish I had decided to try Crossfit a long time ago. Thanks for taking that leap; if you hadn’t, many of us would still be ‘stuck’… and many (like me) would certainly have never thought it was possible to be doing alot of the things we do at Crossfit.
