Well folks we made it! Back when we were in the construction phase of putting CPC together, Eric and I told Sandy that he would have to come to our Christmas Party. His quick reply was, “…if you’re still in business by Christmas…”
Today, ladies and gentlemen is CPC’s official 1 Year Anniversary! To say that it’s been a wild year for Eric and I is a MASSIVE understatement. From our Grand Opening to our first Fiesta to our first competition at CFV, watching Nick open CF Goodland, River, to the Christmas Party, Coach Baker coming on board, Los Prietos Boys Camp, The Warrior Dash and beyond – it truly has been the best year of our lives.
How did this all happen you ask? Very simply – we had ridiculously, awesomely, huge amounts of support. From that first day when CPC was nothing more than a text message between Eric and I up until this very morning, we have been overwhelmed by the level of support from within both the CrossFit community and our personal communities as well.
CPC would not have gotten off of the ground without the help from both of our immediate families and close friends, as well as from our extended families at CFLA, Lalanne Fitness, Paradiso CrossFit, and CrossFit Ventura.
CPC would not exist today were it not for all of you – our members. Today Eric and I are letting out a huge sigh of relief that we’ve made it through year 1 and we’re taking the day off to enjoy Santa Barbara. Today we will raise our glasses to CrossFit Pacific Coast and to the all of you amazing people that allow us to live with health, fitness, and ridiculousness as the governing themes of our lives.
From the bottom of our hearts we thank you – each and everyone one of you - who has contributed to our getting this far this year. We’ve laughed more than we ever could have hoped to, we’ve gotten dust in our eyes a few times (stupid dust) from emails and testimonials that you’ve sent us and on a few rare moments when the day’s mayhem is complete and the gym is quiet we believe that we’ve both found a sense of purpose as well as a sense of peace. Most importantly we’ve discoved something that had been missing from both of our lives for far too long – a community to call our own. We love you all and look forward to spending another year together with you.
- Traver and Eric
