I’m not good at these types of things, so I’ll just get to it. Today is my last day as a CrossFit Chicago employee, coach, and athlete.I’ve seen the CrossFit Chicago community grow from around 60 members to over 460 today. From a tiny 2k square foot space to one with over 11k square feet. It means the world to me that I’ve been a part of that growth.
I agonized over this decision for months before revealing my intentions to Rudy and the rest of the staff a couple weeks ago. Rudy has bent over backwards to make things work for me and he’s been nothing but supportive and a true friend throughout this. As much as I want it to be, being a CrossFit Chicago employee is no longer aligned to my personal and career goals. I firmly believe that you can live a fulfilled life doing something you’re passionate about and I’ll continue my search for that Holy Grail today.
I want to thank the staff and coaches for being a pleasure to work with for the past 3+ years. To the athletes that I’ve had the pleasure to coach, I hope I’ve pushed you at some point to be better than yesterday. To all of you that I’ve sweated next to, thanks for making me a better person, physically and mentally. Thank you CrossFit Chicago, you’ve been like family, I will miss you all.
