CrossFit SW Portland Celebrates One Year Anniversary in Goose Hollow Neighborhood.
PORTLAND, OR, February 23, 2013 –
CrossFit SW Portland is celebrating their one year anniversary, a CrossFit gym in the Goose Hollow neighborhood. The anniversary will be held on Saturday, February 23 from 2:00 – 5:00pm, and is an event open to the community, inviting anyone in the neighborhood to stop in and meet the trainers, as well as the option to participate in a workout and drawings for fitness prizes and other prizes donated from other local companies.
CrossFit SW Portland (CFSWP) is located on the corner of 16th and Jefferson in the Goose Hollow neighborhood, strives
to support local athletes reach their fitness goals.
After the owners were training neighbors for a few years out of their garage in Hayhurst, the Weilands decided to bring their love for CrossFit training to a more expansive location. The doors to CFSWP opened last February, and the couple and trainers have continued to drive community
outreach by hosting a variety of activities including CrossFit Kids, weekly free introduction classes on Sundays, and even a recent global competition with several local affiliates participating.
“It has been a good year at CrossFit SW Portland. I am 58 and I am stronger than I have ever been. I feel like a child playing outside. I may not be the fastest, nor most flexible, but I am on the playground and it feels great!” says Jill Callicotte, an athlete who drives 30 minutes to get to CFSWP three times each week.
“We welcome athletes of all abilities and ages to work out here, and have seen measurable results across the board, including huge increases in strength and weight loss. One member lost 80lbs, another lost 50lbs.” says Steve Weiland, co-owner and head trainer at CFSWP. “The WOD (workout of the day) changes every day, and we tailor each movement to make sure everyone can safely complete the task while still accomplishing a great workout.”
