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.
