Can't believe it! It's been 10 amazing years since we opened the doors of what was originally called CrossFit Covington.
Save the date for a super fun 10 year anniversary party on September 18th. We will have a catered dinner and all you can drink. We will have a video presentation highlighting the past 10 years and lots of awards and acknowledgements to everyone who has been a part of the awesome journey. And of course lots of games and dancing!
I truly thank everyone (current and past) from the bottom of my heart for being a part of our awesome fitness family! You guys are what make this place so special and makes my job the best job I could ever ask for :)
