Before I announce this news, I want to say a few things.
I started Mission CrossFit SA in 2010 with no real idea where it would go or where it would take me. I knew I loved fitness, knew I loved CrossFit and had a true passion for it. I never thought it would take us from 1,000sf building coaching by myself to a 6,500sf building with over a dozen coaches. Waking up at 4am everyday, staying late every night; I wouldn’t trade a single moment of it. I love what we do each day and am so thankful and grateful to each and every person who has ever stepped through our doors. Having done this for almost 4 years now, I have an unprecedented passion for it and want to give back to our current members and reach out to more people throughout the city. This is the way I believe we can do that.
We have such an outstanding family dynamic throughout the gym and cannot wait to see where it goes! Seeing individuals changing themselves daily is what strives me to provide more, give back and grow as a coach and motivate others to do the same. Our journey to where we are would have been so difficult without the amazing coaching staff at Mission and I want to personally thank each and every coach who has ever taught a class with us. Y’all are AWESOME! Again, thank you to all of our Mission family members, y’all have given so much to us, we want to give back again.
So, on to the news…
Many of you have heard through the grapevine that we are looking to expand and maybe move to a larger facility. The classes have grown in size, we have added more members and current members have become more dedicated to different aspects of CrossFit day after day. I know I speak for all the coaches at Mission when I say I love seeing this happen! People get so passionate about something related to what we do at Mission, they start to dedicate more of their free time to it and then make a lifestyle of it. Because of this dedication and love for CrossFit, health and wellness, we at Mission CrossFit SA have decided to give you all exactly what we feel you need to have to continue to do that…
A brand new top-notch facility!
Now before you start asking questions about this, I know change is sometimes hard, unexpected and can give an uneasy feeling, but what we are doing is making this transition as seamless as possible while providing a facility that will, without a doubt, take those feelings away. The location is only a few minutes away from our current location, has better direct access to all freeway directions of 281 and 410, and is also a place we can stay for a long time. We chose this place with all of our members in mind and the future of Mission CrossFit SA.
Here is a quick run down of what this new facility will encompass:
12,000sf (twice the size of our current space) with HVAC (insulated building)
Bay Doors and 25′ ceilings
Men’s and Women’s Locker Rooms (4 showers/2 stalls in each locker room)
1,000sf pre-/post-class warm-up & workout space
2,500sf olympic lifting/power lifting/competition training space
Full use of an enclosed parking lot in back
