November 8th holds a special place in our hearts. It’s the anniversary of the first ever CrossFit class we held here at 203! That was 8 years ago today…and we feel so blessed to continue the business that we are so passionate about. Eight years ago Jackson was two, we were both working full-time at other jobs, and CrossFit was not the household name it is today. We weren’t sure if this CrossFit thing would catch on around here, but we had found a fitness program that changed both of our lives for the better. It was a program that got us into the best shape we’ve ever been in, and at the same time introduced us to the most amazing community, and we were ready to pay that forward.
Unsure what the future would hold, we found 1400sq feet of warehouse space and opened up CrossFit 203 and purchased enough equipment to hold a class if a few people happened to show up at the same time. We opened with around 5-7 members, 10 classes a week…….all while driving back and forth from Waterbury, juggling jobs and a 2 year old.
The life of a small business owner is not a glamorous one, but man is it rewarding! Today we are blessed with 2 more kids, a much shorter commute, an amazing and caring community, a top notch group of trainers who we LOVE and depend on, an in-house Physical Therapy clinic, and multiple classes and programs that extend beyond CrossFit. We are proud of what has been built these past 8 years, and it would not be possible without all of you…our members, past and present, who have become our family.
We want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support, trust, and passion for what happens within these walls. Thank you guys for taking this journey with us…for trusting us with your health and fitness. As we enter our ninth year of business, we promise to continue to bring you the highest caliber of coaching, push you to be the best and healthiest version of you, all while having a little fun and getting sexier in the process! We are excited for new programs and improvements in all aspects of this facility in the coming year. We are 100-percent committed to bringing the CrossFit methodology to as many people as possible in the greater Danbury area. You guys are on the path to long and healthy lives thanks to the training you do, the foods you eat and the CrossFit lifestyle that you live. We could not be more excited for what the future holds!
