FREE class today at 11AM – no reservations, no experience needed, no one turned away. Come try out CrossFit prior to our Beginner’s Classes starting Monday
Two years ago today MTM CrossFit opened its doors for the first time. On the advice of crossfit Founder Greg Glassman we started small, just 1200 sq ft. In that space and on that day we started to change fitness in North Canton. I was literally shocked that anyone came to the very first class at 5:45AM but come they did. And people have been taking the step to change their lives ever since.
Now, 2 years in and 3 times the size, with literally Tens of Thousands of workouts having happened under our roof, MTM CrossFit at its core is remains unchanged – a great group of people coming together to build each other up, take joy in each others victories, comfort the pain of defeat, and on the days between the highs and lows mostly just hoping the WOD doesn’t have burpees!
I’m generally not one for sentiment but truly from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU to all of the athletes, coaches, and families that have made MTM CrossFit such a special place!
We are in no way done here – it’s just the beginning! Last night the coaches and I discussed a vision for MTM’s future. New programming, new equipment, new class times, new coaches, fewer burpees, brand new paper towel dispensers, and much much more are coming to MTM CrossFit in the near future.
Now it’s time to go lift some heavy things and GET IT IN YOUR LIFE!
50 Double Unders
14 Pull Ups
7 Shoulder to Overhead (135/95)
And for your viewing amusement – Here’s me doing FRAN in the original space so long ago there isn’t even a logo on the wall. Someone should tell that guy to turn his toes forward and wait for the bar to hit his shoulder before he squats and stop resting!!!
