Well, December 17 was the anniversary of the grand opening of CFB. We are going into our fourth year and so far it has been an amazing ride. I would first like to acknowledge our charter members. These are the folks who have been with us since we opened our doors in December 2011; Wendy Jorjorian, Bill Kovats, Maria McMullen and last but not least, Vic Yanz. While Wendy and Bill are significant (they were with us even before we officially opened doing WODs in the Park) and Maria is, well stuck with me, Vic was our very first didn’t know us, walk in the door “I’d like to join CrossFit” athlete. Vic, we are so fortunate you walked in our doors that December day. We are honored you have been a part of this community from the beginning. While you are moving on to a new exciting career in Springfield, I want you to know you have made a tremendous impact on CrossFit Beverly. You are a fantastic athlete and a great man. We wish you, Silja and Annika all the success on your upcoming move and our warmest wishes for your new baby. The door is always open for you and we look forward to welcoming you back any day you would like. Thank you for your continued support and patronage over these past 3 years, I can speak for everyone when I say you will be missed.
With over 600 people coming through our doors over the years, the success of the Box is nonexistent without all of you, our athletes, our community, our family. And when I mean success, I don’t just mean financial success, I mean, success in weight loss, in getting off of medications, in getting stronger both physically and emotionally. Ringing the PR bell, dropping a size in jeans, meeting your future spouse. We have seen a lot as a community and I can not be happier or more proud of what you all have helped build. Understand this; my name may be on the affiliation and the lease, but this is your Box. I see how you greet new, potential clients, I see how you make new faces comfortable. I have seen you invite a drop in for breakfast, and he actually joined us. Your ownership and pride in the Box is overwhelming to me. You all are the best example of community. This is not a forced phenomenon, this is organic. It can not be faked or manipulated and what you all do for CFB is real, genuine and authentic and I can not thank you all enough for being the group you are. We have big plans for 2015 and we look forward to sharing them with all of you and some new friends. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Remember “12 Days of Christmas” is Wednesday. Short morning with 4 sessions (8, 9, 10 and 11am.) I would like to make a couple of points. Please arrive early to get some mobility in. This is a long WOD and the warm up will be brief with little time for in hour mobility. Also, please don’t wait until 11am. While we are happy to be in this great, large space, we only have so much gear. We don’t want to turn anybody away at any class, so if you can attend earlier, please do so.
With that said, here is the holiday schedule through New Year’s Day.
Wednesday December 24/Christmas Eve: 8am, 9am, 10am and 11am. No Open PM Open Gym-No Yoga-No CF Kids.

If you ordered a jump rope from Rx Jump ropes, they have arrived and are sitting on the reception desk/bar for pick up. If you have picked yours up we will be charging credit cards this week for your purchase. If you would like to pay with cash or check, please let me know so I don’t charge your card.
Share with your friends and family our January On-Ramp will begin January 12. What a great last minute Christmas gift it would be for a friend or family member. We expect it will fill up fast with New Year’s resolution time.
If you have received a new credit/debit card because of recent retail fraud alerts, or any reason, please check your user profile on MindBody to see if you need to update info.
