On May 2, 2011, Jared LeBouef, Will Saint, Don Melerine, Mike Hebert and I rolled up the door for the very first time at CrossFit Virtus and performed our very first WOD at the box – “Helen”. Since that early May morning, CFV has grown to 75 registered members and five level-1 certified coaches. Over the past twelve months, there have been many great accomplishments: First Place Team in Fight Gone Bad, Louisiana Style, 50-Day Nutrition Challenge, first muscle-ups, first-time 5K finishers, 90-Day Nutrition Challenge, CF Games Open Sectionals and the list goes on.
What has contributed to the success of this small box in Gonzales, LA, is, without a doubt, the people of CFV. Week in and week out, you have battled the heat, the cold, the soreness and pushed yourselves beyond your physical expectations. This winning attitude makes YOU a CrossFitter. We look forward to many more years watching this community of athletes grow, and being part of something greater than a workout. Thanks again for allowing Sara and I to be part of such a wonderful community, and we look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday.

Congratulations to Cecil and Sara! Most of us will never quite realize how much work, time, effort, and selflessness goes into running a small business like a CrossFit affiliate. I sincerely appreciate what your family sacrifices to make CrossFit available in Gonzales. Without your willingness to take risks and pour yourselves into a dream, I know that I for one, wouldnt be getting my lazy butt out of bed each morning to get after it! Thanks for letting me be a part of this! Virtus Invicta!
