Hey Folks, (a message from Coach Luke)

So… You may have noticed that I’ve been around quite a bit more, especially in the mornings.  I hope that’s okay with our morning peeps, because I plan on being around quite a bit more in the mornings for awhile.  Tuesday through Saturday, in fact.  Yes, my peoples, Crossfit Verve recently hired me on to be a full time trainer, to my delight.  Let me explain a bit.  
I had been a Colorado Springs Firefighter for over 6 years, the last three of which I have lived here in Denver. Life has changed dramatically for me since I moved to Denver.  I got married in March of 2010.  I had my first child January 14th, of this year.  Amazing how priorities and expectations in life change when you have people to take care of.  
Bottom line, working at Verve is going to 1) Allow me to get better at cooling your beans. 2) Become more committed to an amazing establishment, and, 3) Become more balanced and happy in my life.  I get to see my wife and kid every day now.  Not too shabby.  
So, whereas now you know me, you will have the highly, highly, really, really highly esteemed privilege of knowing me even better now!  I know, I can’t wait either. 


Sunday Fun-day is April 29th!  Please join us for a community day that will include: a BBQ at CrossFit Verve, followed by an afternoon baseball game at Coors Field.  We will have the grill hot and ready for your tasty treats two hours before the game.  Your hometown Rockies will be taking on the New York Mets at 1:10pm.  From the gym we will have a “Verve bicycle gang” head down to the stadium.  If you do not have a bike, no worries some will walk and some will drive to the game.  Please post to comments your RSVP so we can reserve group tickets, are you in for FUN?
