June is always a month of reflection at CrossFit 45 North because it is our anniversary month. June 11, 2012 was our opening day. Our first class was the 5:15am class, coached by Catherine Blatner and attended by these 7 awesome individuals.
Christine Rosencrance, Lori Edelman, Rosemary Barrow, Cindy Luong Archibald, Catherine Blatner, Erica Tan, Skye Tyler and Edwin Periera.
These were just 7 of the MANY people who believed in what we were starting and 3 of them, Lori (in Minnie Mouse pink), Cindy (in vibrant yellow) and Erica (our ninja in gray) believed in us enough to invest in CrossFit 45 North and get our operation up and running. All of you know Erica and know that she continues to be an active and consistent member with the happiest and best attitude a person can have. She loves this community and it shows in her dedication to effortlessly create a positive environment around her at the box. Most of you remember Lori, who moved to Florida a year ago to live near her beloved Disney World. Even from afar, we know and hear that Lori continues to be proud of the community CrossFit 45 North has established. Some of you remember Cindy, who sadly passed away from lung cancer in 2015. Even though Cindy is not physically with us, she has an incredible presence at CrossFit 45 North. Our PR Bell, in honor of our #warriormom, is rung by every athlete of the gym anytime they have reached a Personal Record…whether it be in the gym or in life. Cindy reminds us, “Don’t Wait” on a doorway entering into the gym space. Her vibrant smile is found in the pictures hung in the hallway and with every picture of Cindy, you can her her laugh and her tough mom attitude telling you to work harder and live your life to its fullest.
These three awesome people, along with everyone else who believed in, and continues to believe in, CrossFit 45 North from the beginning, have come together for 6 years to create the community we have today. As with any family, we too have experienced so many different moments, created a million memories, and have watched our own family come and go.
Jennie, Lindsay, Christine, Greg, Justin and myself want to thank you all for helping to keep our amazing community of people and for giving us the opportunity to be in your life and for allowing us to help create a healthier you. We love our community and we look forward to what the future holds.
To Jennie, Lindsay, Christine, Greg, Justin and the CrossFit 45 North community – THANK YOU for believing in me!! This community over the past 6 years has made me a much better human and has shown me how awesome humanity is. There is more support and love in these 4 walls than I ever would have imagined and I cannot see my life without this place and these people.

Just as last year, three teams were created – Green team (Captain = Coach Lindsay), Black/Blue team (Captain = Coach Jennie) and Gray team (Captain = Coach Christine). Three workouts that were 6 minutes each were set up. Each team posted up at a station and after all team members completed the workout, would rotate to the next station.
The Black/Blue team was defending their title from 2017 but was not able to hold off the Green team from running away with it in 2018!!
Way to go to all of the participants, you all worked hard and gave your best!
