stepping down

By October 7, 20112 Comments

This is Ryan. By now most of you know or have found out that I am no longer in charge or owning CrossFit Lynchburg. After a few months of going back and forth I finally decided it was in my best interest and that of the box if I stepped down. It was a great time and feel truly blessed to have been able to be a part of everyone’s lives over the past 2 years. I very much hope I was able to help everyone and have a positive impact on all of your lives throughout that time. It was for that purpose that I started CrossFit Lynchburg in the first place. I think with the popularity that CrossFit has garnered over the last year or so with the Games pepole lose sight a little of what CrossFit is meant to do. This is to improve everyone’s wellbeing, to make us stronger, fitter, to be able to do that which we thought we couldn’t do before, to live longer, healthier lives. I’m not saying that the Games aren’t important because as an athlete I love them and hope we get some people from our box there every year, I just want everyone to remember that the purpose is to make us all better. I hope that I’ve created a great place for everyone to come and train and make themselves better and be part of this great community of CrossFit. I’m glad and honored to call all of you who I’ve met through the doors of CrossFit Lynchburg my friends. So I thank you for that, because without all of you, none of this would have been possible. I am honored to still be a part of the coaching staff, so you’ll get to see me on Tuesday nights.

I feel as though I’m turning this over to the right people to carry everything forward. Jerrod and Amanda will do a great a job in charge and already have done some good things since they’ve taken over. Look for even more innovative and fun ways to train in the future.

Again, thank you all for everything and I look forward to seeing you in the box.

    Ryan was very gracious and welcoming when I first called him to be a part of CrossFit Lynchburg a couple years ago. Its been fun to be a part of CrossFit Lynchburg, and Amanda and I are excited to continue as the new owners. We are very happy that Ryan will still be training athletes at the box. He brings a lot of experience and expertise that will be valuable as we continue to grow. Thanks for everything Ryan.

    Thanks for everything Ryan. Crossfit Lynchburg has definitely come a long way from the Wyndhurst Box to downtown and I can only imagine it will continue to grow and bring in more people with the same desire to live happier, healthier, and fitter. Thank you again for all you’ve done and I’ll be excited to see you training is still!
