Ramblings of a box owner

4 years ago today I received my CrossFit Certificate, at the time it was another small step in my journey of self improvement. Not long afterwards (1 month) I opened CrossFit DHM in a 1000sq ft unit.

When I opened my dream was to have somewhere to CrossFit at and find a few people to train with and share my (then new found) passion for CrossFit....

In reality what happened was I had somewhere to train and quickly found people to train with, but suddenly had no time to train myself... During this time I lost a little bit of passion for my own training, but this was replaced with passion to train others, bizarrely I get more pleasure from seeing my members progress than I ever got from getting better myself.

4 years on..... We're in a bigger box, we have a bigger and better community, we are all better, fitter, leaner, stringer and more importantly healthier. My passion for training is back (even though I've been injured since July from an accident outside of the box) I've managed to compete this year and plan to compete against next year. Next year we already have teams entered in 2 large weekend competitions, and individuals entered in a couple of large single day comps, we have duathlons planned, triathlons, obstacle races, box holidays, throwdowns with local boxes and obviously nights out....

I can confidently say next year is going to be awesome.......
