Can you believe it… 10 years of Daybreak?!

Well, here we are. Bringing in 2024 and looking back at the year that was. 2023 had significance for us as it marks the 10 year anniversary of Daybreak. We can’t express enough how grateful we are for the fitness family we have around us.

A fitness family made up of folks who have been with us since the beginning, as well as those who have just now found their new fitness home.

It’s really you… our family who makes us… well… us. We thank you all for these 10 wonderful years and look forward to continuing our journey with you.

… Mel & Rap

How it all began…

Mel kicked off her CrossFit journey back in 2009 and I found this functional fitness goodness in 2010… a few years later, 2012 I think, we were drinking a few of margaritas with a some CrossFit friends when they said… “You two should open a gym together!”.

We had a couple of giggles that night thinking of what a far-fetched idea it was. But after a few of days contemplation… we decided to jump right in.

Cue the parking lot…

In the summer of 2013 we started renovations on our space and thought we would try to spark some interest by hosting some outdoor, in our “parking lot”, classes.

This first group of crazies, many of whom signed up with us before we even opened our doors, were affectionately called our Parking Lot Members!

Community, Community, and, yeah you get it, Community…

Funny how a little friendly competition can bring a gym together. We’ve held many a throwdown over the year and we’ve had a blast bringing our diverse group of members together.

We love that we have so many members who met inside the gym, but yet, have formed long lasting friendships outside of it. This is the little extra sumthin’ we’ve discovered at Daybreak. And it’s pretty cool.

And now on to 2024…

We’ve seen a lot of entrances over the years. Babies, marriages, homes… new beginnings. We can’t wait to see what the next decade brings and we love that you’re coming along on this ride with us.

Thank you for a wonderful 10 years… and raise a glass with us to celebrate all that healthy, fitness goodness.

… but not to the air bike, those can go pound sand.
