This weekend I executed a Letter of Intent with the owners of a fabulous facility. We are excited and can't wait to get going.
With very few improvements to do, the space only needs a few weeks to get up and running. Some electrical, drywall and paint and in we move. Our equipment will take that long to trickle in and with items like Dynamax med balls on back order, some will take longer than others.
We will not wait for all our gear to show up. A crossfiter only needs a floor and a few weigths to get a monster workout, so we will take advantage of what we have when we have it and "3-2-1 Go" around December 15.
Our location could not be better for the Everett area. Trust me, I have seen about 50 potential sites and this is the one. Half a block away from the events center, very close to fire, police and anyone who works or lives in the Everett area. The freeway is easy on/off and with Colby and Hewitt within sight, good coffee, beer and eats will be easy post workout. We are definately in the downtown core and excited about helping new friends getting in the best fitness of their lives.
Especially fun is that we share the building with Chopstix piano bar, a really cool coffee shop/book store (Steve at the Gathering Grove) and a couple of attorneys which will be perfect neighbors for us. I look forward to meeting all the other tenants.
Stay posted. We are nearly there with Crossfit in Everett! Oh, I did not mention the safe block to run around. Bonus: it is nearly flat. No worries though....a perfect hill is right across the street!
