2016 Year in Review

Dec 31, 2016 in Blog

CrossFit Advanced reaches its six-year anniversary at the end of 2016, our biggest year yet.

This year, we:

  • Expanded the CFA leadership team.
  • Unveiled a new logo.
  • Held a ton of special events, from baby showers to costume WODs, beer pong tournaments to holiday parties, dodgeball games to zip-lining outings.

And we were named the best CrossFit gym in the Lehigh Valley for the third year in a row!

Through it all, we worked our hardest to bring you the best we could all year long.

Here’s just a little of what happened in 2016.

Our services grew like crazy, because we:

  • Created, then expanded, Advanced Fit class
  • Added weekly yoga with Kevin Roth
  • Added programming with Jason Leydon and Jeff Funaro of CrossFit Milford
  • Brought back CrossFit Kids with Coach Ali Heller
  • Expanded Open Gym hours
  • Expanded personal training and nutritional coaching offerings
  • Created Adaptive Athlete programing for kids with disabilities
  • Added the Indoor Practice Facility, 5,000 square feet of indoor turf
  • Added a third bathroom
  • Offered food delivery through Meal Prep Grind

We held competitions for hundreds of athletes, including:

  • Test Your Metal for the 6th year
  • Blood, Sweat & Tears for the 3rd year
  • All Jacked Up for the 2nd year
  • Stupid Human Tricks, a new monthly in-house competition

And we added a ton of new equipment for you this year, including:

  • Portable pull-up rig
  • Assault bikes
  • Rower
  • Yoke
  • Jump ropes
  • Dumbbells
  • Wall balls
  • Slam balls
  • Women’s barbells
  • Barbell racks
  • GHDs
  • A state-of-the-art three-room sound system
  • Filtered water cooler
  • Lockers and a lounge space
  • Vacuums, sweepers and other behind-the-scenes equipment to keep the facility at its best for you

In 2017, look for more expansions, equipment, services and events, as we keep working our hardest to make CFA the best possible home for your fitness!

CrossFit Advanced would not exist without YOU. Our members are why we’re here, and why we do everything we do every day. Thank you so much for being part of the CFA family. We can’t wait to see what we’ll all accomplish together in 2017!

Happy New Year,
