Well, it’s official – CFT is growing and expanding!! A few months ago, I asked you to take a member survey so I could an idea for the things that you wanted at the gym. Mostly I wanted to make sure I was meeting your needs and secondly to get an idea for anything I needed if my long-planned expansion dreams were to ever become reality. Finally I received word on Friday that I can sign the new lease and we move into the new location hopefully by July 1 – that’s what the “excitement” note is about on the whiteboard under July 1!!
Have no fear, it’s not far .. just a few doors down in the same building. A little about the new place:
- Over 7000 sq ft (almost double what we have now)
- More lifting platforms are in the plans
- will have 2 showers, 3 bathrooms and 2 change rooms
- A small kids room
- A training room up front to start the beginners classes
- Planning a nice retail corner
- Working on a new layout to maximize floor space for WODing
Several of you have asked for specialty classes, like olympic lifting, mobility, etc. I am planning to work these into the schedule. As you know, we have a few new coaches and I am looking to hire one more in the next few months to fill the gaps for the new classes and offerings I hope to have.
So as you can see, lots of changes at CFT but all positive for us and I am super excited to grow. For those of you who don’t know, I have been working on this expansion since last year. There have been many ups and downs but in the end I am happy with the way things are moving. Mostly I am happy to offer YOU a better facility and I hope you enjoy all the new perks that I plan on having there. I will definitely keep you updated on all the expansion news as it becomes available. And an expansion wouldn’t be right without a big party; I am planning a gym move and a big ole’ Chipotle catering Grand Re-Opening party once we get there.
Thank you all for being so awesome and making my dreams come true. CFT growing and expanding is exciting and I am forever grateful for all your support!
