Anniversary Party: Celebrating 10 Incredible Years of the CrossFit Flagstaff Community

10 years ago Mike and I followed our heart (and encouragement of many early CrossFit trainers and friends in Flagstaff) and opened CrossFit Flagstaff in August of 2006, out of our home garage. The past decade has been such an amazing, rewarding and unforgettable journey. We have been so lucky to have the opportunity to be a part of hundreds of people’s lives. We have shared lots of birthdays, weddings, baby showers, anniversaries, happy hours, holidays, parties…. We have been fortunate to have so many great friendships as a result of this affiliate. But nothing would have been possible without the support and encouragement of our amazing coaches, especially Tara, who takes care of CrossFit Flagstaff like it was her very own.

This community that we have created is YOU and without you CrossFit Flagstaff would only be an empty building with some equipment.

Thank You, all of you, for being part of this amazing community. We love you!

10 years ago, in the Ray’s “Garage of Pain” CrossFit Flagstaff was born. Dedicated to changing the world one life at a time for a decade!

“10 years ago my life was forever changed… I found Lisa and Mike after breaking my back in the Fire Academy. They introduced me to CrossFit. Adorned with a back brace in their garage my journey began. I am forever grateful for the way my life has unfolded because of their dedication to mechanics, consistency, intensity and above all community. Thank you CrossFit Flagstaff! A decade of changing the world one life at a time! Not many gyms can say that and I’m proud to be a part of this one!” Tara was our first athlete, and is now our Level 3 Head Coach, the heart and soul of our affiliate, and one of the most dedicated, deep hearted people I know. You all know this. Thank you for all these years of loyalty, commitment to excellence, and love for this community Tara!

Big thank you to Miranda Oldroyd for creating our workouts for this celebration today!

Teams of 4 banded together, mostly by decade of birth, but there were a few mixed age teams to keep things interesting and spirited!  Great job to everyone, and thank you for such a fun day, celebrating together!
