When it comes to CrossFit, change is almost always good. And so it goes with the big change this month at CrossFit Ocean City.
As I begin to write the final blog as the owner of CrossFit Ocean City, I can’t help but think how surprised people will be. Please know the sale of CrossFit Ocean City is perfectly timed.
From a humble beginning in the garage to a full-fledged business operation serving hundreds of people, the past 9 years have been rewarding beyond words. While the success of the business was important, it was the ongoing achievements of each person in our community that provided inspiration for us to push our boundaries as coaches and owners every single day.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to love and serve people while growing a business. CrossFit Ocean City was born out of passion, nurtured out of love, and grew out of need. We know we were strategically positioned to provide a place for anyone willing to uncover the best version of themselves.
With the support and assistance from so many people, we were able to redefine what it means to be physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually well. We are grateful to our lifetime friend and mentor Andy Petranek, founder of CrossFit LA, for his involvement in setting us on our path. We are fortunate to have trained under the excellent trainers from the early days of CrossFit who exemplified what it meant to pursue excellence. We are thankful for our awesome coaching staff, Coach Glassman, our families, and countless others. We thank you all for your role in guiding us toward this day.
The foundation is laid. The house is solid. Our work is done. It is now time for the next floor to be built.
It is with great excitement we announce Andrew and Greta Del Corro as the new owners of CrossFit Ocean City
Andrew and Greta have worked alongside of us for quite some time. They took on several new roles this past year, most notably the barbell club. Greta obtained her Level 2 certificate and she's eyeing the CrossFit Kids certificate next. This month Greta has slowly taken on the role of owner as we pass control of all the back office work. She is primed and ready to take on her role as full-time business owner effective today, Friday, August 21st.
We feel very comfortable handing our "baby" off to Andrew and Greta. They are eager and excited. They'll bring a fresh approach to programming, new ideas for the community, and enhanced training opportunities for all. We're excited and you should be too.
As for us, we'll still be around the gym. We love coaching and we'll continue in that role.
Thank you for all the support, loyalty, and love you've shown us. It's truly been our privilege to serve you and be part of your lives.
-Kelley and Steve
