Good Afternoon Point Fitness!

First a little update on the gym. The rigs on both sides are officially up!
We just finished up the other side today.

We couldn’t have done it without this crew right here! Thank you Chris Carpenter, Steve Arnoldus, Jon Meldrum, and of course Dave! They finished the job today! We also had numerous hands setting up the rig on the other side and I couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out.

Another progress update… We have mats…We have mirrors! Flooring is down and the mirrors went up this weekend in Gym B.

A little messy but mats are down and mirrors are installed!

Things we are working on:
A sturdy gate for the upstairs kids room.
Paint and finish in Showers and hallway.
DRINKING FOUNTAINS!
Benches and lobby setup.
Doors!
And all sorts of little things.

We are making progress and I want to thank you all for your patience. We are creating something awesome here and it takes time to do it right but our goal is to be done by our Grand Opening August 3rd!

Grand Opening
Our Grand Opening will be August 3rd. Please spread the word and spread the event that we have posted on Facebook. It will go from 7-1 and during this time we will be having classes every half hour for everyone to try out the new offerings and to try out CrossFit.
This is a great chance for you to bring your friends in with no pressure. They can come and participate or they can just come and see what we are all about.

Daycare Questions
I know this week we had some questions and concerns with the Daycare situation. First of all, I totally understand and we are doing everything we can to solve all issues involved here.
To make up for the hiccups that have occurred during July, I have asked the Point Playhouse to roll over all payments made in July to your August dues. This means that your July Daycare will be free and this will also be a great opportunity for all of you to try it out and see the changes we have made in this arena.
They have also created a Facebook page here. If your kids come with you to The Point join this page, please. This is the perfect place for you to post your questions or concerns and to get answers to any issues you may come across.
I wanted to share one post from the Point Playhouse Owner:
“My name is Tonya Adamson and I wanted to take a minute and introduce myself. I am excited to be involved with organizing and implementing a child care program for the Point Playhouse. I have ran a successful daycare and received training in this specific area. I am also first aid and CPR certified. I have been involved in childcare for twenty plus years and this will be an exciting adventure for me. I look forward to working with you and especially your children. Our objective is to provide a safe, worry free, structured hour for your child(ren) as you enjoy classes at the Point Fitness facility. We would like to see this service evolve into more than just babysitting; by offering creative and fun activities. 
I know there have been frustration and some concerns expressed. We appreciate your comments and suggestions. We are trying to learn how to best serve you and accommodate your needs. As we maneuver through this change, I appreciate your patience and flexibility. Please feel free to comment or direct message me if you have concerns or suggestions. At this point, we would like to credit any fees that have been paid for July to your August fees. At that point, we hope to have improvements and any kinks worked out. 
Thank you!”
This week they will be offering child care hours 6:30, 8:30, and 9:30 AM. If you’d like to see other hours, please contact Tonya. Once we are fully running, I expect to see these hours expanded and eventually, I would love to see daycare running the whole time we have classes running but that will depend on demand. For now, baby steps.
As a parent, I am really excited for my littles to have a place like this where I can drop them off and not worry about them. We all need an hour a day to ourselves and this makes it more possible for parents to do so.

As far as bringing kids when no day care is provided… We are working on details with this and deciding where is the best to place for your children. Like I said above, I think in the future this will be a non-issue because Point Playhouse will be available every hour we have people working out. But for now, since not everything is complete, your kids can stay upstairs in the kid area while you workout but please do your best to go up there when you are done and just pick up after them. It would be much appreciated. Once we are complete with renovations, we’ll update this policy.

Salute The Point

We have added quite a few of your friends and hope that this final two weeks will get even more people in to experience not only CrossFit but our other offerings.

I hope you all made it to the end of all of these exciting announcements. I hope you understand how much I appreciate your loyalty and pride you have at CrossFit The Point, Point Fitness. It means the world to me. I want to end with a Sunday thought that Coach LaDee shared on her Facebook today.
This thought hit home to me and epitomizes what I went through with this gym move and am currently going through and may be what you went through when you took the leap to join us at The Point.
I hope fear doesn’t prevent you from doing what you are capable of doing. You all are capable of so much. Don’t let fear get you down.

Coach LaDee:
“Great message today! Talking about fears…The fears we have will be the boundaries of our lives. We have healthy fears and unhealthy fears. Questions to ask ourselves… Do fears prevent us from trying new things? Are our fears rational or irrational? In time of fear, for me, I know God is with me. He will walk through those dark places with me. He will walk through the waters with me. I have a peace in relying on something much stronger than I will ever be! Happy Sunday friends!”
