As the Crossfit Games Open is coming to a close, many questions arise.  Where do we go from here?  Whats the next step? What do I do with all this fitness.  We can say hands down that our Gym Community at Generator Crossfit was in fact the most active, the most fit, and the most supportive out of all the gyms that participated over the last 5 weeks, and for this we applaud you all.  We have posted a few of the pictures of our family, but this doesn’t even scratch the surface.  We are Happy to see faces like Nisha Henderson, Chyla Comrie, Maddison Summison, and Leslie Crawford put in the work to show how far they have come.  Veterans like Sean, and Chief , and Kristen Craft Leading the way out on the floor with the loudest cheers.  If We haven’t mentioned you on this post don’t think that we have forgotten you (Jordan M. , Katie, Jordan S. Britt, Fia , Shae, Bryan, Tiff S., Rylan, Troy, Kathy, Traci, Kerry, Devo, and the rest of the family that my fingers are to tired to type)  You all have made this possible.  Our advice to you is get ready for next year!  Cuz you better believe that we are coming with ” Power From Within.”  Our Logos, Pathos, Ethos, Athletes that will be forged in the greatness of Building 55 will indeed see huge improvements on their skills, strength, and mentality.  We promise all of you that dedicate  your time and efforts to your well being, and the well being of your GCF family members, will grow immensely.  Next time you see your Brother/Sister in Crossfit give them a big hug and say ” Congrats on being a Bada$$!”

 

We as coaches are constantly rededicating ourselves to you, and your progress.  Although we aren’t perfect ( Though its pretty close with Seans Guns, Dave’s Well Grown Red Beard, and Damians “Channing Tatum” appeal) we are working toward perfecting our programming, our motivation, and drive to help you succeed.  Feel free to think back over the last 5 weeks and let us know how you feel about your progress in the open , and how we can better help you.  The Crossfit Open is coming to a close, however more doors to your potential are being kicked in like a Ninja Cat, with a pistol riding on a fire breathing stallion that also happens to be a unicorn… We love you all and we will see you on Monday!!

Dearest Generator Crossfit Family,

This is an Ode to you all, who has dedicated much of their free time to living the standards in which WE the coaches of Generator Crossfit find important in our day-to-day lives. There are some of you who have been with us from the very beginning, and some of you have just created a new beginning. No matter the circumstances, we consider you all parts of our family, vital parts of our lives, and essential pieces to a much larger puzzle that we are attempting to build. Over the last year we have seen something that has been the most miraculous benefit in all our lives, a high standard of community support. The bread and butter of the Crossfit model are certainly how strong a community family truly is. And we at Generator Crossfit would easily say that we have the strongest by far, and it is completely unmatched. Would it surprise you that we can achieve much more? (I hope not considering that we are constantly hitting PR’s everyday☺)

With that being said, your coaches have been dedicating a large amount of time and effort to helping you hit your fitness PR’s, us hitting our “Coaching PR’s”, and all of us hitting our Community PR’s. So in a short, round about way we present to you the unveiling of the LOGOS, PATHOS, ETHOS PROGRAM effective immediately at Generator Crossfit.

This program was designed for many reasons. One of the main reasons we created this is because it truly is intoxicating seeing all of you reach a higher standard of life through being with us, and we invite all of you to continue that progress by adhering to this program.

Exciting things are truly about to come to pass at Generator Crossfit, and you are going to be apart of it. We love you all and thank you for everything that you do, and are excited to see how well you all do!

Cheers!

The Generator Crossfit Staff
