Happy Birthday CrossFit Cardiff!
Six years ago today, the doors of CrossFit Cardiff opened the doors for the first time. At 9:30am, on a rainy Saturday morning, approximately five hours after throwing the 'spare' nuts and bolts from the newly assembled GHDs into the bush opposite, the first members of our family walked over the threshold; excited to see the new fad, taught by two young (younger) guys, still wet behind the ears, desperate for sleep.
The small yet perfectly formed ice box of fitness was bouncing within minutes. Nervous looking legends who had traveled from as far as Leeds warmed up ready to tackle 'Fight Gone Bad'; my first ever CrossFit workout.
For hours, heats came and went. PB's and sweat flying every where and just think...we didn't even have a sign...
Since that day, I have made more mistakes then I can remember. Regardless, soon enough something had to change...
And thanks to an amazing family we opened the doors without anyone dying and only having to cancel one class...
And now, it is just a normal part of your lives. Here's to another six years of thrusters, burpees, drunken escapades and hang overs. Post Xmas Doo embarrassed faces but definitely NOT anymore Reebok CrossFit "Games" hot tub parties.
Thank you to everyone for your support over the years.
