Saturday we had the chance to celebrate five years of fitness, five years of community, five years of mental strength, five years of challenge, five years of excellent coaching and five years of business success for CrossFit Asheville. Collectively, we are all grateful for the ways that CrossFit Asheville, its coaches and its community have made us better and stronger. Since the days of Randy’s Fit-N-Fun Classes with the Koons,Tom Rehm, Rustan Adcock & Kelly MacMillan plus the Duvalls OG’s from Depot Street with Daniel Smith, Rick Miller & Sean Clickner, CrossFit has been changing our lives.
