Employee of the Month - Raquel Theodosopulous








Raquel,


Thanks for 6 amazing years! I had a good feeling about you the first time I met you. Following that hunch to hire you was one of the best decisions I have ever made as a business owner. Your energy is unique and contagious! You make people want to be better and not just at CrossFit, but it seems at just life in general.


It’s been awesome to watch you evolve as a coach. You have a technical eye for Olympic lifting, which is a hard earned skill that not all coaches can achieve. But your ability to connect with people is what makes you a top coach. From our beginners, to our our OGs and even our drop ins, people constantly are talking about awesome “Coach Quel” is. You make people feel comfortable and welcome. I am so appreciative for your efforts in that!


I have enjoyed watching you evolve as an entrepreneur as well. I have said it a million times, that not everyone has what is takes to run a business; it takes a certain type of person. A person willing to listen, to work hard and to fail and to most importantly to learn from those failures. You’ve been able to learn from any negative experience in your life, and move forward with positivity, new ideas and tenacity to keep going. Who knows what the future holds for you, but I know you’re a boss in wherever life takes you!


Thank you for your hard work. Thank you for your positivity. Thank you for your excellent coaching. Thank you for your creative ideas. Thank you for your humor. Thank you for your friendship. Thank you for taking over when I needed it most. Thank you for everything! You will be missed, my friend! 🥲


- Emily

RENOVATIONS ARE ALMOST DONE!


Building renovations are almost complete! Thank you so much for your patience and putting up with the mess and disorganization.






Here is a list of improvements made thus far:

  • The Lobby/Front entrance has been relocated to the CrossFit side including our new sign!

  • Active Physical Therapy has been relocated to the CrossFit side just behind the new front desk. Be sure to stop in and check him out if needing any physical therapy needs!

  • A new hallway from the new entrance directly to kids room has been made.

  • We tore down the rest of the wall in the CrossFit area and added mats to expand the crossfit space. We replaced a lot of the old mats and repositioned them to get rid of the cracks as best as we could. We still have a few more finishing touches to get the mats in order.

  • We built up the kids room wall up to the ceiling to make it quieter and also enclosed the kids area to keep them from the lockers, ice machine, etc. This created a separate locker area/lounge. We still have a few finishing touches to put in place here.

  • We relocated Bella Bar Hair Salon, to the existing front lobby. There is a new hallway between the salon and front restrooms. Be sure to check out Bella Bar hair salon for all your styling needs!

  • All four restrooms have been painted. New flooring was added to the front restrooms. All new paper towel, hand soap and toilet paper dispensers have been added.

  • We knocked down the original Salon and Physical Therapy Walls to expand the Fitcamp area, adding more mats and turf. A retractable divider wall to allow for multiple activities at once (such as personal training, beginner crossfit and bringing back some kids classes, etc.) will be coming soon as well as new signage and another pull-up rig.

  • We FINALLY have AC for the kids room! New overhead lights coming soon.

  • New tile and signage in the fitcamp room. Special shoutout to my Dad, Jimbo who made this by hand all from a small pic I texted him of our logo. I'm such a lucky girl! Thanks DAD! Love You!


Upcoming Renovations Include (Spring/Summer)

  • Painting the outside of the building and making some other aesthetic improvements (STARTING NEXT WEEK!)

  • New outdoor signage (Coming Summer/Fall)


 


ANNOUNCEMENT & PARKING NOTICE


Kroger is moving into the Builder's Surplus building sometime in 2023. Construction on the building will begin in January. We are very excited to welcome our new neighbor to the block! However, we will be losing our parking access in their lot across the street as of January. Our landlords will be doing some renovations to the parking lot behind our building, as well as helping to build out a new back entrance and lobby for us over the next few months. Stay tuned for more details and parking updates!
