One year ago today, my world turned upside down when the CF box I was managing got sold and my position was eliminated. As my world was crumbling late that night, I called a friend for sympathy… his comforting words: “Good. Now you can open YOUR gym.”
I am so thankful to ALL of you – the students, interns, ITPers, coaches, partners, and other supporters who help every day with making my dream come true. It is an honor that you each selected CrossFit Midtown to help you become stronger, healthier individuals.
As I reflect on the past year, I can only hope each of you will also find what makes you happy, follow your dreams and live life to its fullest. I wish you all the best. Here’s to a great journey!

SAVE THE DATE: Halloween Glow Stick WOD is Wed, 10/31 at 8pm!

Join us tonight at 7 for Paleo Potluck & Pumpkin Carving

We’re having a half-way through the WLC party Friday and everyone is welcome to join the fun! Please bring a paleo dish to share with 6 to 8 of your fellow CFMers… AAAAND, bring a pumpkin! We’ll enjoy some grub and then dissect some pumpkins… we’ll provide some carving tools. WHAT IS EVERYONE BRINGING TO THE POTLUCK?

  1. Last call for CFM hoodies! Placing the order shortly… (if anyone has questions on sizing, I wear a M and Brianne wears a S… I'll be ordering some extra beyond the pre-orders, so if you get the wrong size, we'll be able to accommodate some swapping).

  2. Brianne Elaine Verraneault

    Or in the words of Urán Piedra "That's a small? It looks child size" Hahahahaha

  3. Don't forget after the party is the after party – tonight at RiRa! Come help us celebrate some b'days and we'll raise a toast to Lis' accomplishments over the past year too. Now, off to the grocery store to find something to cook…
