This blog is personal. It’s not going to be a blog on what to eat, what exercises to do, or why what we do works. This blog is for the soul. It’s simple, it’s the why behind the name of the gym and what it has become.
About 10 years ago Adam came across this new training method. With a personal drive to get more physically fit and with his natural business mindset, he set forth on his quest. I remember getting the email, let’s embark on training together while Adam learns to coach this training method. We started with a small group at a local fitness facility. And boy were we doing things that nobody had seen before. I can’t tell you how many stares and dirty looks we got from others training there at the same time. But we all fell in love with the training system and it was working, and more importantly, it was fun.
Fast forward a short time…Adam found a facility that he thought would work. I can tell you at first glance it was rough and I had my doubts. We soon as a group were tearing down walls and demolishing things left and right. I remember our first WOD in a gutted facility with rubble everywhere. It was 400 air squats for time and a picture of that hangs proudly at Crusher to remind us where it started.
It all started to come together. Crusher was being created.
Why the name Crusher? Adam and Jody decided to name the business after our beloved nephew Lukas aka “Crusher” lost his life in an accident at the age of 18. I can’t tell you how much this means to me every single time I walk into the facility and see his picture on the way in. He is why this place is what it is. He embodied love and family. With his values as guidance and the vision of Adam and Jody, we slowly added members and formed a family. Crusher was evolving into much more than a fitness facility.
See, Crusher is not a building. It’s a group of like-minded individuals that are working towards a goal, together. It sounds cliche but it’s the honest truth. The Crusher community is powerful. I see it every single day. It’s a place where a lot of the time we come in to just see other members, laugh, and socialize. And to work out of course. I can’t tell you how many times I need the support and I need to feel the energy from our members to get me through a workout when I am just not feeling it. I know all of our members feel that same support.
Crusher accepts everyone. When you are a Crusher member you are part of a family, a community of overwhelming support by its members and passionate staff. I am proud and honored to be just a small part of Crusher.
Great things happen here. Special things happen here.
I encourage you if you haven’t yet done so to read the vision of Crusher here.
