Labor Day at Flatland

Good morning everyone!

As you know, Labor Day is on Monday (9/4). We will be closed that day. 

However, please join us at Flatland CrossFit on Monday morning for an 11:00 am workout! Flatland is hosting a charity workout for their members (Diana Latham). You may know Carleigh Latham, one of the coaches there. There will be shirts for sale and other ways to donate. This money will go towards costly breast cancer treatments. 

You can also buy a shirt online here: http://lathamwebdesign.com/product/be-awesome-everyday-t-shirt/

If you can make it, please join! Many of the Lubbock affiliates have been there when we've had members in need. Let's return the favor. 

Please arrive a 5-10 minutes early to fill out a waiver!

See you Monday!
Steven

 

CFLBK + Macroholics

Many of you are aware of the life-changing results that Macroholics has to offer. Well, CrossFit Lubbock is excited to officially partner with David and his team to help you attack your fitness goals with even more speed and intensity! 

Several of our members have already been "macroholics" for months now and have seen staggering results. For example:

You likely recognize many of these faces and six packs. 

I hope you're ready to hop on board! Let's get shredded.

Here's how it works:

  1. Sign-up under Team CrossFit Lubbock
  2. Someone from the Macroholics team will contact you and add you to a private members only Facebook group. If you are uncomfortable sharing in the group, you may message David privately.
  3. Similar to having a CrossFit coach, you now have a nutrition coach holding you accountable daily and giving you feedback and information to help you be as successful as possible!

Don't wait! Get started today!

Cheers,
Steven Willis

Send-off WOD for the Joneses

Hello again everyone! 

Luke and Abby Jones have been with us since we opened over 3 years ago. This Saturday (7/1) will be their last day at CFLBK...

Below is a letter from the Joneses explaining a little bit of what they'll be doing. Luke will share more on Saturday!

Hey guys!

My wife Abby and I just wanted to briefly fill everybody in on some big changes happening in our lives soon, as well as why we won’t be around the gym after next week! (All the feels!)

Abby and I have had the joy of being a part of CrossFit Lubbock since they opened, and I was fortunate enough to start CrossFit at Capstone CrossFit under Steven’s coaching all the way back in late 2010, while Abby started CrossFit with the awesome community of Flatland CrossFit in 2012! We met through a mutual friend in 2012 and went on to start dating in 2014 and got engaged and married in 2015, which is when we decided to join our CrossFit worlds and train together at CrossFit Lubbock.

Since then, we have grown to truly love the community here at CrossFit Lubbock and have felt incredibly blessed to consider them as friends and family. As our passion for fitness and community has grown, our desire to share each of those overseas has grown as well. Which, leads us to now…

We are currently finishing up selling everything we own and will be moving from Lubbock after our going away workout on the morning of Saturday, July 1st, 2017. This summer we will be living with family and spending time with both family and friends before our really big move!

In October, we plan to board a plane to Turkey with the dream of doing CrossFit and building a community of fitness in a new country and culture! I recently earned my CF-L2 trainer certificate and our plan is to spend time learning language and culture when we arrive, as well as getting involved with some of the local CrossFit boxes in the area. Eventually, we are hoping to explore the possibilities of opening our own box in Turkey, that would utilize Steven’s incredible GoForBroke Programming!

So it is with exciting vision, and heavy hearts, that we will be saying goodbye to the amazing CrossFit community in Lubbock and all of our friends and family. The Lord has truly blessed us and this season of our lives in Lubbock and we are so incredibly excited to see what is in store!

Feel free to reach out over the next week and this Summer if you are interested in any more details or have any questions for us, as we would love to share lots of other parts of our story and what we will be doing in the coming years overseas!

We look forward to seeing anybody that can make it to our going away workout on Saturday, and whether we end up getting to see all of you before we leave or not, we just want to say thank you for the time we got to spend alongside you working out, having fun, and enjoying this truly blessed community with all of you!

We love y’all!

Luke + Abby

Please come join us this Saturday for one last WOD with this amazing couple! Bring a friend, anyone is welcome!

Afterward we will head to lunch somewhere as a group. See you Saturday!

Cheers,
Steven Willis

Personal Coaching with DP

Our personal coaching program has been one of our most popular memberships over the last year. And with good reason! Allow me to explain why:

  1. Derrick Peoples
  2. Flat fee of unlimited sessions with a personal training (with no contract!)

Derrick Peoples
DP has been on staff with us for a year and during that time has provided nothing but excellent service for our clients. The results have been incredible! He is highly qualified and educated, with a Masters in Exercise Science. Not only that, but he has lived his own transformation. Derrick gone from a 280-pound nose guard for West Texas A&M, to a 205-pound CrossFit Regionals qualifier. He knows what he's doing! Come learn and train with him!

 
 

Unlimited Training
Most personal training is done session-to-session and usually is a minimum of $50 per session. We charge a flat rate of $400 per month for UNLIMITED sessions with Derrick. That's a savings of over $600 monthly! You don't even have to schedule an appointment, just show up between 5:00 am and 2:00 pm and Derrick will be there to put you through an hour of results-driven training. 

 
 

Whether your goal is to shred weight, get stronger, or learn the basics of CrossFit, this program is for you. 

Don't wait. Get started today!

Your first session is TOTALLY FREE. Fill out the form below and we will set up a time for you to try it out!

Beef, Rice & Jesus Christ

I am excited to share some exciting news with our CrossFit family! Tim Harris, famous for his diet of almost exclusively beef and rice, has been a member of CrossFit Lubbock since we opened in the Spring of 2015. This year, he was hired on as one of our personal coaches and does a wonderful job serving our members, for which we are extremely grateful.

Well, very recently Tim had a life change and became a believer in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He is making that public this Sunday through baptism and you are invited! Now this may not be your thing or may even offend you, but I encourage you to read ahead for Tim's personal testimony. 

The baptism will be held Sunday (5/14) at 8:30 am at Redeemer Church. We will have a group sitting on the left side of the auditorium when you walk in.

 
 
 

Tim's testimony:

Hey everyone! First, I would like to thank so many of you for so much love and support through CFLBK. This place means the world to me. 

Those of you who have known me for a while are aware that for most of my adult life I have been a hard-line atheist. My contempt for religion was strong and I had no qualms stating so publicly. I was so smug in what I thought to be the truth and looked down on anyone who thought differently. 

About two years into my career as a mailman I met a homeless man in a convenience store. The first time we spoke he yelled across to me asking if I believed in God. To which I simply replied, "No." He told me since I was out walking every day to talk to him. I kind of rolled my eyes and thought, "Whatever, crazy homeless man." For two years, every time he saw me, he asked about my walk with God. I always replied, "Nope, not yet." 

One morning, a week after the end of a very toxic relationship, I was having a really tough time. I went to grab breakfast from the store and there was my homeless friend, holding the door open for people and being his crazy self. When he saw me he remarked at how he could tell I was closer, something had changed. I played along, "Sure, yeah, I'm closer." After grabbing food and caffeine, he walked with me to my car. He spoke of the narrow path to righteousness, how we can't walk alone, how God has to carry us. He said, "We need you." I was taken aback. This man has nothing and had never asked me for anything. He was always concerned for my heart and he said I was needed. I was speechless. 

Two weeks later I told my story to a friend. She urged me to reconsider. I reluctantly made the excuse that I've tried so many times. For friends, family, even myself. She said, "No, you have to do it for God." Why had I never heard that? It made so much sense. All the reasons for my anger with God had to do with people and not Him. 

The next morning I reached out to a good friend via text (another member of CrossFit Lubbock). Someone I trusted and respected for how he handled himself as a Christian. The moments while reading his reply I felt my heart truly change. He had been praying for me. For weeks he said. I'll never forget the flood of emotions. Wiping my tears as I tried to continue to work. 

There is no doubt in my mind that God worked through these wonderful, loving people to soften one of the hardest of hearts. I am so undeserving of God's grace. Yet, He gave it to me through the right people in His perfect timing so that I would have no doubts. My life now is His. I want nothing more than to live a life that is pleasing to my Heavenly Father. In love and obedience I have decided to be baptized this Mother's Day weekend. I hope to see you there.

See y'all Sunday,
Steven Willis
