We wanted to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to everyone and let you all know how excited we are to be taking on this new chapter in our lives. We were just as surprised as the rest of you when Jake and Winter approached us about taking over the gym. We were saddened and excited at the same time. We had thought over the years of opening our own gym but being that we both work full time it was still just a pipe dream. The opportunity that Jake and Winter have given us has forced us to realize our dream and for that we will be forever grateful.
So just a little back ground; my husband and I started CrossFit over 5 years ago at CrossFit Centurion. After a few months I decided to go another route and got my license to teach group exercise and began teaching Zumba, meanwhile Simon continued to thrive in the CrossFit community. Over the last few years with both of us working fulltime and going our separate ways after work we decided to return to CrossFit together at a new gym. That’s when we found our new family at Stompinground.
Simon and I have a long history of teaching fitness and now we get the opportunity to do it for ourselves and our members. About us, Simon works in law enforcement and I work as a nurse. We have 5 children(who are adults) and two dogs, oh and the cat that actually belongs to our daughter. We feel so blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives and hope that number will only grow.
After all of that we want to let everyone know that change is hard and we are trying to avoid as much change as we can. For those of you who have asked or who are wondering the programing is not changing, we are going to continue to provide the same programming that Jake was using. As far as the coaches, they are still the same people we all know and love. We are planning on implementing training for our coaches so that we can keep bringing you the best work outs you can possible get.
Last but not least class schedule, we will be evaluating the attendance in each class to determine if we need to merge some of the mid morning classes. I am happy to announce we are adding a 3:00pm class due to the overwhelming support. So please make sure you are signing up on Box Command so we can track the attendance. We are looking forward to adding more classes, gymnastics and fingers crossed a Barbell Club in the near future. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to myself or Simon as we are more then happy to talk with any of you. We want to thank everyone for there support during this transition, we have been working hard to get everything together to keep Stompinground up and running and we look forward to our new adventure.
Simon and ReBecca Ramirez
