Chris Saliba affiliated in March of 2009. Just over a year later he looks back on lessons learned and challenges overcome.
“Hi Chris: On behalf of CrossFit, we would like to offer our congratulations and to let you know that we would be honored to have you join the CrossFit family of affiliates.”
It was these few words read on March 25, 2009, that started the ball rolling, and as I sit here contemplating this article, I can’t believe how quickly time has passed. With the flood of new affiliates joining the CrossFit family, I thought it might be timely to offer a personal journey from Day 1 through to the current time.
This article is not intended as a success or failure story but is rather just a personal account of the highs and lows, challenges and rewards that the early stages of affiliation can provide.
