So today I officially opened Coca CrossFit to members, and it’s the greatest feeling in the world. Just two short months ago my parents told me they would finance my dream, something that I had not expected. Now I’m the owner, yes, the owner, of a my own gym.
It’s the most exciting and scary thing I’ve ever done, and I couldn’t be happier that I’ve done it. I LOVE CrossFit, and I LOVE training and coaching even more. Now I’ve got the chance to do both for my living. It’s crazy. I get to help better people’s lives for a living. What greater way to spend my time?
I’ve heard it from a few gym owners already. The first time someone thanks you for changing their lives you melt inside. I’ve been lucky enough to have connected and shared my story with thousands, and heard such stories of the inspiration I’ve shared. But I feel like it’ll be a different kind of inspiration being their day in and day out seeing the growth.
As far as BEST days of my life this is the best one yet. I thought competing in the 2010 CrossFit Games was the BEST day ever, but this is a little bit cooler. Even Ty’s daily beating at the Gorilla Pit couldn’t bring me down. Ok, he brought me to my knees temporarily, but I’ve since bounced back. Today is the BEST day ever!
