Wow! The box has come a LONG way! Eight years might not sound like a lot of time, but in CrossFit years, CrossFit Milpitas is OG as hell. CrossFit gyms go through many phases: different athletes, coaches, owners, programs, classes, etc… but the community is a constant. Having only been here a few years myself, I can only speak to the changes that have happened over that amount of time and I must say, I am very proud of what CFM has become. I feel we make a great effort to adapt whether it is using growing evidence and continued education to deliver quality information and coaching to our athletes or even things like offering new or different classes based on member interest and benefit. All this while still maintaining the core values and spirit of the CrossFit training methodology. It's always fun to think of how great things were, but I think it is more important to appreciate how great THINGS ARE NOW and how they will get better. 95% of our members have not been with us these entire 8 years and that doesn't matter. What matters is that you are here with us now, making yourself better for tomorrow.
Here are a few words from the owners:
"Throughout my life in the fitness industry I have always envisioned myself as someone who was generally fit and prepared for anything. I started CrossFit training in 2007 and it has been a roller coaster ride to say the least. CFM has been the foundation for my fitness and my future. Being able to start from such a small racquetball sized gym, to where we are now, (celebrating our 8th year of existence, and STILL delivering great fitness, coaching, and bringing together such a loving and caring community of athletes), speaks volumes to our staff past, present and future. Thank you all for making my days. Thank you all for showing up and working hard. Thank you all for trusting me with your health and fitness. Thank you all for your support to the program the community and your coaches. THANK YOU ALL, THANK YOU CFM. THANK YOU CrossFit Milpitas. "
"Eight Years! It all started as a gym to provide people the best path towards fitness that I have ever walked. Ha! "Walked", more like ran, jumped, lifted, lunged, pulled, pushed, squatted... you get the idea. CFM has grown into much more than that. It's provided friendships, relationships, and even some flings. Through the last 8 years we've experienced joy and laughter through good times, along with some drama and tears through the very few tough times. As a business it has provided income for our employees and their families. It's been a foundational stepping stone for more than a few Bay Area business owners. It's CrossFit family tree is large and strongly rooted. CFM has birthed a couple of professional athletes. It's helped to keep grandparents out of nursing homes and running around with their grandkids. It's saved and changed many lives. It has made people better versions of themselves. We are a community in every sense of the word and I'm proud to be a part of it. Let's celebrate the last 8 years together and keep growing for many years to come!"
