A dedicated effort by many adds a new look and feel to the box.

In a transaction, led by Liza’s passion for all that is CrossFit, a trainer who believed in our plan, a couple who desired to return home and timing which created the perfect scenario, I am proud to welcome in 2011 with my wife, Liza as the new owner of CrossFit Sioux Falls.

I must start by saying thanks to Chris and Annie Mello, the founders of CrossFit Sioux Falls for all of their hard work, dedication, and passion that built this business from zero to strong in 2 years. In my eyes, Chris really did beat the odds in Sioux Falls fitness. Their accomplishments speak for themselves. Moreover, through the entire transition process both Chris and Annie have been phenomenal.

In the past 3 days we have spent over 30 hours with many people, but in particular 3 very dedicated trainers, Casey, Browny and MattyB who spent every hour of that time revamping CrossFit Sioux Falls to get it ready for everyone. I will not forget this time spent with these guys and the effort to make it all happen. Also to the many who showed up Sunday, thank you. I am grateful that people dedicated their free time to make this all happen.

As for what’s new…we took all that was original CrossFit and have added to it. More equipment, a fresh feel inside, new kids area coming and more – come in and check it out. As for what’s staying, remaining unchanged…all the best stuff – the highly skilled, certified and passionate training staff. Casey is on full-time. Browny, MattyB and Cody are dedicating their skills to make you better. Liza is on full-time. It is an amazing assembly of talent that cares about not only your fitness but your life.

Many more changes are in the works and some may take a bit of time. In the meantime, I will assure you the best opportunity to get a great workout with the most qualified training staff in Sioux Falls.

So, as I start 2011 as a blessed Dad and husband of a woman following her dreams, I challenge you to make positive, proactive change in your life. Whether it be CrossFit or some other passion you finally activate, do something!

I am anxious to see what 2011 has in store for all of you and all who CrossFit Sioux Falls!

What NEW will YOU DO in 2011? Get after it!
