Open Gym

After polling several of our members regarding Open Gym, I received common feedback: 1. I never know what to do, and 2. None of the times work for my unpredictable schedule. This year, we’re looking to solve both of those problems.

In 2015, we will open up 20 hours/week of staffed Open Gym time. This will be a time to come in and get some specific programming from a coach to work on your own or as a way to get a workout in around an unpredictable schedule. This time will only be open to CFMH members.

As of right now, these times look something like this:
Mon & Wed: 8a-noon
Tu & Thurs: 1p-4:45p
Fri: 1p-3p
Mon-Th: 6:45p-7:45p

This expanded Open Gym time will be included with any specialty programs (Iron Hill, The Hill Strength Club, etc.) for which you’re participating and will be an additional $10/month for anyone else on an Unlimited Group Membership. Saturday 10a-noon will not be included in the expanded times & will remain a part of your Group Membership at no additional cost.

Upcoming Events and Holiday Schedule

January 3rd, 2015 9:00AM — Kansas City’s Fittest comes to CrossFit Memorial Hill for the 9am WOD. Follow KC’s Fittest on Facebook for more updates. This event is free and open to the public.

Please check your class schedule, your Wodify app, or our Holiday Closings for any schedule changes.

A thank you.

It’s around the holidays that we begin to reflect on the previous year. It’s been a wild ride. It was in 2014 that I left a steady job, a retirement plan, healthcare, a bonus, PTO, and a 40 hour work week. It was a really scary decision that caused many restless nights and endless trepidation. My only regret during that time was how long it took me to turn to a community for support.

Whatever excitement and fear 2015 holds for you, my only hope is that you look around at your community for support. Every day you walk in the gym, you’re doing more than sweating with strangers. You’re experiencing life with other people. Take solace in the thought that everyone walks through the same door with just as much baggage as you.

Whatever your resolution for 2015, make it a shared one. Experience your health and wellness with like-minded friends who won’t judge or scoff at your goals. Lift each other up. Praise the positive. Give thanks.

Thanks for allowing myself and all your coaches at The Hill to be a part of your 2014.

Cheers to a new year!
