A Bittersweet Farewell

16.02.17

Claude McDonald was quoted as saying, “Opportunity is a bird that never perches.” and just as the quote’s truthful message describes, Coach Jason is leaving CFC to explore a new opportunity come March. We wish Coach Jason all the best in his next upcoming adventure. His presence will be missed and his impact will be felt long after he’s left. Thank you Coach B for all you’ve done for our community.

“Hello my CrossFit Calgary family.

I’m writing everyone with the sad news that you’ll be seeing a lot less of me in the near future. An opportunity has come along that I had to take that will see me taking a much smaller role within the gym and community. It has not been an easy decision for me to make; but ultimately I believe it will be a positive one.

First of all I’d like to thank Brett and Rhiannon for taking a chance with me and making my dream a reality. When I showed up to CFC over 5 years ago I had no idea what I was getting in to, I just knew that I wanted to coach CrossFit and make it my career. They found a way to make it possible for me to do just that and I will be forever grateful to them for giving me the chance to do what I love for so long.

Next, the CFC Coaches. You are all amazing people, and I’ve been very lucky to have learned so much from you. From the time I showed up, every single one of you has had a huge influence on who I’ve become over the last few years. I’ve emulated all of you, and I value so much the vast knowledge and experience that each of you so generously share with others every day. Every one of you has taught me something that I will hold dear for the rest of my life.

 

Finally to all of the members, from those I barely know, to those I know too well: Thank you!

Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for believing me to be someone much greater than I am and making me try to live up to that belief. Thank you for making me believe that I had something worth sharing.

I’ve seen so many of you change so dramatically from the time you first stepped through the door, and I’ve see so many of your little ones become not so little anymore. You really have become my family.

The most fulfilling experience I’ve had in my life has been to see all of you showing up, on good days and bad, and putting everything you can into making yourselves better. It never gets old to see the belief that I have in you get replaced by your own belief in yourself. I will cherish these experiences forever.

The trust you have placed in me has been an honour; and, though there were days I didn’t feel like I could live up to that honour, I always tried to.

Thank you for making CFC the place that it was, is and will be”.

CFC Teen goes to Youth Olympics!

02.02.16

Katherine Hogan qualified for the Youth Olympics in bobsled being held in Lillehammer, Norway from Feb.11-21! Katherine was away competing from November 25 to December 18 where she spent the first week in Igls Austria and then she went on to Lillehammer for the final two weeks. Overall in the competition she placed 5th, 7th, 12th, 14th, and finished 10th in the world rankings! Incredibly this was after she had 2 pretty serious knee injuries requiring surgery. Coach Laura stated that she kept coming to class and working on getting her legs strong and under the careful guidance of her CFC Teens coaches was eventually able to do squatting and jumping again. She later suffered a concussion and after recovering she continued to work hard in class. Coach Laura calls her “a very hard worker and very dedicated to whatever she sets her mind to. She is always very positive and helpful with all the other teens as well. I have actually never seen her in a bad mood or slacking off in class”. Way to go Katherine! We wish you all the best in Lillehammer!!
