End of an Era

   After 2 1/2 years, ForgedFit will be closing it’s doors and Crossfit Indianapolis will be no more. I’ve loved every minute of it. From our very humble beginnings sharing the location with a dojo, and holding classes in a 20’x12′ room with 8′ ceilings with tiles removed so we could do pull ups, to our growth and takeover of the full warehouse space. It’s been quite a ride. Most of those who started out in the beginning months are still with us today, something I’m very proud of. We’ve all come a long way from easy Thursdays.

   I want to thank everyone who has been part of our family. From the 5:30 crew who has started my day out with a smile and enthusiasm everyday, to the evening crews  who always seem to have questions that make me keep learning to stay ahead of their thirst for answers. You all are the reason I love to do what I do.

   I’ve never really been a fan of “All good things must come to an end”. I’ve never felt that to be entirely accurate. But in this case, seems to be fitting. So farewell ForgedFit – Crossfit Indianapolis, and farewell 6886 Hawthorn Park Dr. It’s been fun. Many memories, many life lessons, and many close friendships forged there.

But wait, there’s more!

   We won’t be closing, so much as changing. Changing locations, and changing names. We are now Crossfit Broad Ripple, and our location will be 6542 Westfield Blvd. Right on the Monon just north of 65th street!

   This is short notice for everyone, and for that I apologize. This opportunity presented itself recently and we jumped at it. As you guys have seen from our improvements in the gym that this wasn’t in our plan, but as many of you know if I find something that will provide you guys better results or a better training environment I don’t hesitate and neither do Brad or George. This change will provide more training space, 3,600sf and 18′ ceilings, with our own private parking lot and direct access to the Monon trail! We couldn’t have imagined a better place for our gym. We are very excited about this change! Stay tuned for updates, more pictures, and other news about this big change. Add our new Crossfit Broad Ripple facebook fan page!

Early stages of the new location.
