As I sit here and write this, its been almost 1 year to the day since our lives, what seemed like overnight, were drastically changed. I’ll never forget that Monday in March 2020, where I stayed up all night thinking and organizing a gameplan for Boulder CrossFit on how we would get through these closures. I honestly did not know if our gym would make it through next month, let alone a full year. But here we are, one year later. Not only surviving as a local business but THRIVING!
This blogpost is mainly about reflecting on this past year, being grateful for each and every one of our past and current members and getting excited about where BCF is going in the future.
2020 was a year of growth for Boulder CrossFit. While tons of gyms were struggling to keep their members happy, healthy, and engaged we pivoted to Zoom classes while adding free equipment rentals. The pandemic forced me as a business owner to adapt. I had no other choice or else BCF would not survive. My coaches were vital in this as well. While we said goodbye to 2 of our old BCF coaches, we welcomed 2 new ones to the staff last year. And of course, we can’t forget about who makes BCF so special…YOU ALL!
When we were forced to shut our doors for over 60 days, the immediate outpouring of support got me as a business owner through it all. The texts, emails, and calls all voicing your support by keeping their memberships active, meant the world to us as a gym. I also had members donate money to help us out with the ongoing bills as a business. Words will never be enough to describe how thankful I am for that.
The last 12 months have been a rollercoaster but it has made us all better because of it. The next 12 months will bring more exciting PR’s, fun social events (fingers crossed), and a renewed sense of community and FUN.
If we can thrive during this past year, we can only imagine where we will be in March 2022!
