Cheesy or not, I wanted to take a day to appreciate the United Barbell community as a whole. Rarely (in my opinion) do you find a group of people who are so inclusive and supportive as all of you. It makes me proud to know that anyone walking into this gym, be it a new athlete or a visiting CrossFitter, will be welcomed like family, even if they will only be with us for the hour. Call me sentimental, but I still think it needs to be said: You all make United Barbell an amazing place to call our own.
No place was this more evident than in the kind words offered in the nominations for the Spirit of the Open during this year's House Cup. Each week, Coach Jon got to see the love and camaraderie expressed eloquently by the people that matter: you. In fact, your words were so considered and warmhearted, we thought it a shame not so share. Take a moment and read through the highlights and the love this community has for its bromate brothers and sisters.
