Legends of the WOD recap Posted by admin on September 28, 2015 • 3 Comments

One word will sum up this past Saturday’s event: Success. The day could not have run any better. What makes an event like this so successful is the dedication of the people involved. I want to thank the coaches for all their hard work over the last few weeks. We are truly blessed to have such an amazing crew. To the volunteers; this event would not have run as smoothly had it not had these people involved and doing tasks from directing parking, checking people in, cleaning up trash, making sure bathrooms were clean and stocked, changing weights, and beyond. To the ones that spent the majority of their day judging, words can’t describe how thankful we are.  There was nothing but good reviews from the athletes about the judges, be it their abilities or their kindness.  A special thank you to all the sponsors and vendors that supplied us with prizes for the top athletes or cash to help us make this a great event. An extended thank you to the athletes that participated. Based on the reviews we did things right.
Here’s a snippet from an email we received:
“As I mentioned to you yesterday and some of your staff you guys did a heck of a job. Thanks for putting this together and hosting such an awesome event. As an athlete it felt good to see the though and effort put in to everything that when on yesterday. The logistics and run of yesterday’s competition was impeccable. I’d say flawless!! We notice these things, believe it or not. One of the things that really stood out for me was the Heat sign up desk. Wow!!! To take the time to prefill these sheets for me was priceless!! The athlete felt confident and you made life easy on your judges as well. We all make mistakes, specially in the heat of an event like yesterday but this little step reduce margin of error to a minimum. So as an athlete I thank you for that!!! I’d also like to thank your volunteers who were all very friendly and knowledgeable of the event and all things happening there. For making sure the Porto-potties were always stocked and emptying out the trash. I was lucky to have super supportive and on point judges so please thank Ashley, Jen and Laura, who were right there pushing me through – THAT was priceless!!! And all the ladies at the rower, thanks for pushing each and every athlete in the beast of machine!!!”

Next we would like to say thank you to all the people that came out to support the athletes competing. You are the ones that make theses events so much fun. Keeping every workout energetic is priceless for the athletes. Having a support system to lean on means a lot as well.

And finally a hearty congratulations to all the winners of their respective divisions! You worked hard and earned your spots, especially the two gentlemen that threw it down for the tie breaker.

We’ll be working hard to put on an even better event for next year, so be on the lookout!

-Brandon Head, Owner & Coach

ANNOUNCEMENT Posted by admin on September 24, 2015 • No comments

Grapevine CrossFit opened its doors for business on August 27, 2009 with a plan in mind and no reassurance at what would become. At the time there were a handful of gyms in the DFW area and now there’s 200+. Six years later we’ve grown into one of the premier CrossFit gyms in the area and it goes without saying that its from the support of our ever growing community of members and the dedication of the staff.  It’s with that I regret to report that Bevin will be leaving GVCF in October moving onto a new journey in her life.  The community is losing an integral piece to it’s success over the years and we wish her nothing but the best in what’s to come. Here’s a few words for the community from her:

Where to begin.
Lets hop back over 7 years ago when I was introduced to CrossFit. Dragging myself out of bed to freeze outside that little garage in Highland Village, wondering what the hell I was doing putting myself through such torture…Getting the first hand experience of what community would then begin to mean to me. Never did I think the roles would reverse, and I would be the one to make an impact on 100’s of people’s lives.
When the million dollar question of “Hey what do you think about opening a gym?” came up, I was scared, hesitant, but excited. Starting with a handful of loyal followers, we have now grown into not only a successful gym, but a strong community of people I admire every day.
I’ve seen it all: the good, bad and the ugly. I’ve met some wonderful people who have impacted me more then they will ever know. My only regret is that I didn’t tell them how important they truly were.
I’ve also learned a lot..
Friendship. Thank you for your part in my journey.
Teamwork. Through countless hours of training with my fellow athletes. I loved every second of it-even if I cursed and yelled at you. Nothing says there’s no I in team like falling on your ass repeatedly handstand walking, sitting on a pee filled rower just to get a better time, taking 10 hours to get in a cold pool just to ultimately be tackled into the water, swimming in Lake Grapevine when it’s FOURTY SIX DEGREES, and riding the struggle bus through the Fittest Games together…you all know who you are.
I’ve learned about loyalty, love, and loss. I hold all of these experiences close.
Every book has it’s chapter, and this one ends with me leaving Grapevine CrossFit in October. I’m going to miss my friends I work with every day, because calling them co-workers doesn’t give them any bit of justice. They will keep the GVCF home nice and warm. I’ll miss the 250 beautiful faces I’ve gotten so used to seeing. I don’t want it to be a sad departure, instead a celebration of the 6 years I’ve laughed, cried, and absolutely loved being at this place. I hope I’ve changed your lives just as much as you’ve changed mine.
“Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great purpose in your heart.”
Her last class will be the 5pm on September 30th. There will be a get together at Chill in Grapevine on Friday, October 2nd starting at 6:30pm for a final good bye. Come by to say hi and wish her good luck in her future endeavors.
