CFNH will be closed until Thursday (Thursday and Friday: normal hours at Livingston Park)


We will be using this time to logistically prepare the outdoor set-up for our crew, it's actually pretty awesome and we stumbled on an opportunity that will allow us to keep things permanently set-up outdoors while the renovations continue at 540 Commercial St.
Battle CrossFit has offered to let our athletes head up and jump in on any of their WODs as well while we transition into our new home; starting Monday based upon the weather schedule we will post a timeline for the each week with a heads up if there are inclement weather days so everyone can plan on dropping by in Epsom for some Battle CF Madness (unreal facility!).
There will be a WOD posted for tomorrow, and each day thereafter by 430am, keep slaying them, freaks! With the momentum we've had lately there will be no stopping us once we get into our new space! Yessssss!

**UPDATE: July 14th LIVE WOD AT REEBOK IN MERRIMACK!! See Chase for Details!!

This is so annoying.

Sorry Morgan, we're doing the best we can.

It will be worth it in the end Morgan!

Dave said...

Nope- I don't buy it...

Annoying is bumping into 13 people all trying to do their WOD in the old space...

Annoying is NOT growing, changing, expanding, nor improving...

Annoying is having a "done" lease agreement yanked at the last minute... I think it's fair to say for Samy, it's all been FAR MORE than annoying.

For us, THIS is a mere inconvenience- easliy displaced by other local Boxes' generosity in opening THEIR gyms up to accomodate US while in transition...

Hang in there- "Nothing worth-while comes without change."

I'll do something of my own creation today again.

Samy,
Colm & I should see you in the park on Thursday, and we are all looking forward to the new expanded and no-training-restriction locus whenever you can get it ready.
We appreciate your endeavours and the difficulties that have been thrust upon you and the crew.

IT WILL BE EPIC....YESSSSS!!!!

Dave...eloquently said.

Samy and Crew...thanks for all your efforts to getting us into a new spot. I'm so excited to be part of this change with CFNH, and I know it will all be worth it in the end.

I understand that this has been hard for Samy. I just think that people would appreciate a little more information about what is going on. I feel like there are a few people who know what is happening, and the rest of us get seriatim information from random posts and gossip. This transition comes with down time and that is fine, to be expected, part of the process, and likely worth it in the end. However, I think people would appreciate information about the process so we can plan our own training schedules in the meantime. When we first found out we were moving, I think most were under the impression we would be in the new space right away. Now suddenly we are not able to use the space and there are sporadic WODS in the park until.... a time yet to be determined. Very nice of the other local crossfits to offer their space, but for some of us the commute to other boxes doesn't easily fit into our day to day routine. Not to mention drop in fees.

Do we have a date when we expect to be able to be in the new space?

Just trying to figure out an alternative training schedule for myself.

I may be a "noob" here but I am with Morgan. I wish this was all taken care of prior to joining cross fit. In the past month I have heard about moving to the new spot every time I went in the building and turns out it's a park.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect that. The reason information is sporadic is because there's 110 people that need to know things and it's not right to give out information that might change, instead I wait until something is for sure before passing it along. This is most definitely not the situation I envisioned for timing, We're doing the best we can, but everyone should pause for a second and please respect the fact that this was nothing to do with any CHOICE on our part. We were put in this situation through malicious and illegal actions by our previous landlord. Sure we survived and proved we were right, but there was a great deal of unknowns and chaos to get through, much outside our control. Everyone is lucky the gym is actually going to be able to survive. Our new home is 540 Commercial St and there's a great deal of work the building is rapidly working through for us. We've ordered a ton of gear that arrived today at the ups location and Im planning on setting things up so that for the next 3 weeks we have a spot to WOD. We're currently working to get into our space sooner by talking to the owner and guys doing the work to hopefully coordinate a timeline for being able to use at least part of our space while work continues on the rest. That's all there is to know at this point.

I''ll be at the Livingston WOD hopefully for Thursday but definitely there for Friday. Samy-I'm happy to volunteer to help move equipment & setup in the new space if you are looking for spare hands.

Samy deserves our support and patience as he navigates us through this very challenging situation...CFNH will come out stronger as a result.

Morgan said...

Thanks for the info Samy, sorry this has been so crazy for you.

If you need someone to sue people's asses you know where to turn! .... but seriously.
