  1. Thanks Tim and Erin it’s been a great going on 10 months for me; I can honestly say what you’re building has become a part of me and now even my family (Poor Maria). Thanks for your coaching, cajoling and proclivity to meticulousness that I know makes me want to get better everyday.


    thanks for letting me join the fun! I look forward to the coming year 🙂

    1. Not gonna lie- when I read ‘proclivity’ I’m pretty sure my eyebrows raised. Excellent word choice Jim!

    2. Hahahahah Christina, I thought the same thing and just stopped reading his comment because the words were way too big

  6. Happy Birthday, 908! And Tim, thank you for being intuitive, attentive, understanding, and demanding all in the same moment. Erin… your presence is a contributing factor to 908’s success. Together, Tim and Erin,… you make 908 the place to be!

  7. Congrats Tim and Erin for 2 years of 908. Two years of 908 means just about 2 years for me crossfitting. I remember my fundamentals class was 2 people (including me) and I used to do 6:45pm workouts alone. Great job growing the gym and following your dreams!
