Wow, what a fun year at Roots!
Here’s a recap of lots of the fun stuff that took place this year…
Roots hosts its first In-House Olympic Weightlifting Meet, athletes rocked the Total Days of Winter, folks met at the park for a good old SuperBowl Throw Down, Shane started What You Don’t Use, You Lose, and Stefanie took a leap and moved from Southern California to work at Roots! We hosted the first of three Lift Heavy Shit Nights, finally got pictures uploaded on Flickr, and made a new website. March kicked off the Spring Fuel Challenge, Roots, Verve and MBS CrossFits banded together to host the CrossFit Open Competitions, and the 5/3/1 program kicked-off.
Roots hosted the final CrossFit Open workout and community day, Shane added power hour to Friday afternoons, the No Gray Area Food Challenge took place, Roots athletes voted for the Benchmark Series workouts, Open Shop started on Sundays, and we began to offer sporadic clinics. Zac and Nicole competed in the CrossFit Regionals.
The Cup broadcast the CrossFit Games, Shane started his blog Inherent Appetite, we announced the BIG MOVE, hosted the annual summer BBQ at Eben G Fine Park, and added $16,000 of new equipment to the shop.
The Fuel Your Journey Challenge took place with great successes, Roots hosted the CrossFit Endurance Seminar and Fight Gone Bad 6. Stefanie put together the first annual Crocktoberfest, we kept you posted (sort of) on the new shop build-out, and added the fantastic trio of Ali Minton, Tracie Holcomb, and Russell Berger to the coaching staff. WE MOVED TO THE NEW SHOP! The Thanksgiving WOD rocked the new shop house as we had a great turnout – thanks for coming! AND, the Roots Team won the MBS Turkey Challenge. Odie became an even more familiar face at the shop with his addition to the Roots staff and the front desk. And we wrapped up the year with a super fun holiday party that ended with people taking their shirts off…
