Decemeber 2022 Newsletter
Updated: Dec 16, 2022
IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ!
The 2022 Kentucky legislation in House Bill 8 makes substantial changes to how various services are taxed within the state. This unfortunately has affected businesses that offer fitness classes and personal training. As of January 1, 2023 - all of our services - including all contracts, month-to-month memberships, introductory specials, 6-week challenges, seminars and personal training will be subject to a 6% sales tax.
If anyone would like to avoid this sales tax, you may choose to pay any portion of your contract or month-to-month membership upfront to avoid the tax (must be paid prior to 12/31). If you choose to pay for an entire year upfront, we do also offer an additional 10% discount.
Please know that I did contact the governor's office to express my concern over a 6% tax to pass on, in addition to the high inflation members are seeing in their every day lives already. I was referred to local legislators to continue advocating for the removal of the tax. I am so sorry for the price increase you will see as a result, but it is out of my control at this point.
Please email Emily if you wish to pay for any part of your membership upfront or if you have any questions or concerns that we can help address.

CONGRATS TO OUR MEMBERS OF THE MONTH!
Fitcamp - Missy White
"Missy is an amazing driving force for every class she's in! Her encouragement while being competitive helps motivate others around! Her rebound from knee surgery was a textbook process and even adds to her determination to constantly improve! We are honored to have her as part of our Fitcamp FitFam!!! #WhoopWhoop." - Coach Adam
"I don’t get to have Missy in class very often, but if I do and Keith Baumann is in class, it’s on. I love to see that healthy competition and trash talk that makes for a very fun environment in class. Missy puts in continuous hard work and it shows!"
CrossFit - Logan Pasqual
"Logan is always great to have in class! He gives his all to make sure that he uses good form (except rowing lol) which has helped him excel."
- Coach Taylor
"Logan is great to have in the gym and a really great person. He is friendly to everyone and is great to talk to. He is super coachable and very willing to learn and improve himself. He continues to challenge and push himself everyday and we all really enjoying having him as a member! - Coach Jenna
"Logan is always smiling and has been a welcoming face to all newcomers, which I love as an owner! He also has a drive to improve and welcomes any and all coaching tips. I am always so proud of him when he hits a new PR, because I know he worked hard for it and his smiling face lets you know that PR made his day! "
- Coach and Owner, Emily
Employee of the Month - Coach Taylor
Taylor has been a tremendous help these past few months taking on a few more additional administrative roles. She also worked super hard weeks before leading up to the competition doing anything I needed to help make that day a success, including staying late many days and doing lots of work from home. I could not have pulled off the competition without her generosity! She also stepped up to the role of head judge and did a great job of helping the competition run smoothly and on-time the day of the event. Thanks Taylor! You Rock!
Congrats to Coach Jenna, who has qualified to WODAPALOOZA, one of the most renown CrossFit events in the World! Unfortunately, it is VERY expensive to attend, so we will be helping her raise funds to cut some of her expenses.
