2 years of Sigma CrossFit

Exactly two years ago, I taught my first CrossFit class that was really mine, where I got to make all the programming & business decisions myself, not as an employee or a manager for someone else's business. It was a tough decision my wife & I had to make to become small business owners, to take such a risk so close to us having our first child, but we went for it...

Exactly two years ago from today, as Sigma Training Group, I was renting space at an Anytime Fitness & had one CrossFit class at 8:30am with one client, Tommy. The WOD that day was back squat, 3-3-3-1-1-1-1-1 reps for load. Tommy lifted 185-205-225 for 3 reps, then 245-265-275(f)-265-265 for 1 rep. A few days later, we did max pull ups & Tommy got 5 reps.

Two years later, as Sigma CrossFit, we have our own dedicated facility with 7 classes per day, & that 8:30am class just recently had 19 people in it this past week! Tommy has been with us the entire time & now has a 3 rep max back squat of 300#, a 1 rep max back squat of 315#, & can do 30 pull ups without dropping down from the pull up bar!

It's been an awesome two years & I wanted to thank all of our Sigma CrossFit athletes for choosing to make a positive change in your lives & for choosing Sigma CrossFit as the place to make it happen. We care immensely about all of you & look forward to seeing your fitness progress just as Tommy's has!

Biggest Saturday Open Gym yet!

We had a total of 20 people @ open gym this past Saturday! Biggest crowd we've had on a Saturday that wasn't a special event! It was awesome to see such a variety of people working out! We had 3 people going through their Σlements, 2 people doing Friday's WOD with the farmer's walk, 3 people doing Wednesday's 100s chipper, 3 people working on weightlifting, 2 people working on cardio, & 7 people doing Hero WODs! We got a picture at the end, but by then, half the group already left.

July 4th Hero WOD, in honor of "Loredo"

6 rounds for time of:
....Squats, 24 reps
....Push ups, 24 reps
....Walking lunges, 24 steps
Time cap of 40 minutes. Post time.

We had an awesome turnout for an awesome Hero WOD! We had 35 people doing the workout! Next time, we need to make sure we get a group picture @ the end of the WOD! What a great way to celebrate our nation's Independence Day. Always remember, freedom isn't free, it carries with it a high price that soldiers have paid for with their lives. These Hero WODs are dedicated to those fallen soldiers so that we will never forget their sacrifice. Like/follow us on Facebook or Google+ so you won't miss out on our next open gym event, which might be sooner than you think!! :)
