WOW! It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks! I know it's been forever since I last blogged BUT it's been for good reason....CrossFit Katy has finally settled into its new home! Let me tell you, I thought moving into the first space was difficult work, but this move has been sooo much harder! Obviously when CrossFit Katy first moved it was from the park (I don't miss those days!) to an actual building. We didn't have barbells, weight plates, a pull ups system or pretty much anything other than kettlebells and dumbbells. This time we had to move ALL the equipment into the new space and to top it off, the space wasn't even completely finished when we had to move so most of the equipment had to be piled into the middle of the space until it was completely done. I think over a three day period I spent close to twenty hours in the gym (not training either)...and Neal was there even more! But it was so worth it. The new space is great! 4000 sq. feet (almost twice as big as our old space) and two bathrooms with get this....SIX showers! So far, we've run four days worth of classes and they have been great. I am so grateful for all our our amazing athletes. Not only are they kicking butt and taking names in the WOD, they have also been instrumental in getting the new space set up. Without their help and dedication to CrossFit Katy, the move would have been so much harder so thank you everybody! I wish I could individually thank everybody but that list would be huge! :) I look forward to being able to relax a little more and get back into the swing of things. The gym space has a little bit further to go but I see a finish line on the horizon. I have been a bit inconsistent lately as far as my fitness is concerned and can't wait to get back into a routine. I'm looking forward to crushing the Open WOD 11.3. (Finally something heavy that I might have an advantage on!) After that it's back to my normal workout routines. I am so excited for the future of CrossFit Katy and can't wait to help it grow!
