In July 2008, Rusty opened CrossFit York. He had to travel to Michigan for his CF-L1. This week’s fun CrossFit York history fact: Dave Castro and Adrian Bozman were on Rusty’s seminar staff (i.e., they indoctrinated him!) and he’s met Greg Glassman.
It was the first affiliate in South Central Pennsylvania; currently, there are over 14,000 CrossFit gyms world wide. When CrossFit York opened, there were only 395. CFY is number 396. We have some history.
In celebration of our 10 year anniversary, we’ll have monthly challenges and mini-celebrations throughout the year. This month, we’ll be holding a social media contest! Our goal is to get 2,000 “likes” on Facebook–as of this writing, we have 1,978.
In order to be entered in a drawing for a free month of membership, post a PHOTOGRAPH of something cool happening in the gym on Facebook with a CrossFit York check-in! OR can also post to Instagram with #crossfityork in the caption.
Each post will be counted as an individual entry–and you can post up to once per day between now and the end of January to be eligible.
on the horizon
We’re getting lots of questions about another big event happening this year–our move! If you haven’t heard, the building we currently lease has been sold to the York Heritage Trust. The Trust is working to raise the money to renovate the entire building to house museums and administrative offices. CrossFit York will move into renovated space about 3 blocks away on Market Street, in the building that the Book Emporium currently inhabits. While the exact move date is not yet set, we anticipate moving sometime between May and June, though this date may be changed based on when our new building will be ready. Most importantly–we DO NOT anticipate any substantial disruption of your regular workout schedule (though we may have some “moving day” WODs; remember, we’re all about functional fitness!!).
