"The Future of CrossFit Lake Stevens"
CrossFit Lake Stevens is taking a step forward and making some changes that will have a positive impact on our community. I have spent a considerable amount of time over the last year praying, seeking advice & reevaluating my position as the owner & head coach at CrossFit Lake Stevens. I want you to know that by no means was this decision a knee jerk reaction.
On November 1st I will be passing the torch as the owner & head coach, making way for Coach KC & Sydney the Gym Dog. You will see both of them at the gym on a regular basis. I encourage you to introduce yourself & feel free to address any questions you have about the changes coming for CFLS. KC is a great guy with a mad passion to help people learn to love fitness & build strength. KC was a thoughtful & informed choice to lead CrossFit Lake Stevens into the next chapter of it's history & I'm excited for both KC & you, our community.
CrossFit has been a place of refuge for me. I found solace in the CrossFit community & bringing people into this community became my passion! The relationships I've nurtured while steering this ship over the last decade are very special to me.
I want to thank all of my coaches, past & present! You all are what helped make this community thrive. The countless hours of instruction, dedication and most importantly your friendship is priceless.
To all of our members, those who have just begun your CrossFit journey, those who have been with me for years & those who were present when I knocked out my teeth; YOU are what makes our community special. Every WOD I programmed was designed with "YOU" in mind. Every event we held was to bring "US" closer as a community. Thank you.
To my person, Miss Angie... thank you for standing by me over the last 4 years. You have always been a voice of reason & given me the support I needed. I love you.
Over the years I have had an opportunity to learn, practice with & soak up knowledge from so many. In that regard I am blessed. Dave Werner & Nancy Meenan from CrossFit Seattle were instrumental in the early days of not only learning the CrossFit method but helping me start my affiliate. Kurtis & Laurie Bowler from Rainier CrossFit have been model examples with a wealth of advice. Their friendship & dedication to this community is second to none. Jeff & Charity Vale, founders of CrossFit Snohomish, not only introduced me to CrossFit, they have become some of my closest friends. Incredible athletes & exemplary affiliate owners, Jeff & Charity have always been there for me. I cannot thank them enough! Robb Wolf who helped run my first ever Level One & helped me to understand nutrition better than I could've imagined. Mike Burgener helping me learn to clean & snatch when I was wet behind the ears! Coach Burgener has touched the lives of so many & his techniques still course through the veins of our gym every week. Nadia Shatila from CrossFit Belltown is a shining example in the CrossFit community. Her polished teaching style & knowledge of the CrossFit method are beyond admirable. If you haven't visited her gym put it on your bucket list! Gorgeous! Josh Everett & Stephane Rochet for giving me the tools to not only refine my Olympic Lifting, but successfully lead a group to do the same!
After Coach KC takes over at the helm you will still have me as a coach. And, I intend to workout often next to you in class. CrossFit Lake Stevens is my home and I plan to stay!
