Construction Update

by Jeff, Coach on February 28, 2011 · 0 comments

Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful Portland weather that we are experiencing! On the off chance that rain, hail, snow and freezing temperatures don’t brighten your day; here are some updates on what’s going on with our build-out and potential opening date to help lighten your mood!

-Our equipment order from Rouge Fitness was delivered today, all 5,000 pounds of it (1,500 lbs pictured below).

-If everything goes as scheduled, our walls, bathroom, and lighting should all be in by the end of this week. Once that is finished, we’ll have the city come in for our final inspection so that we can officially “occupy” the space!

-Painting, floor installation, and equipment setup should all happen next week.

-Once we receive our occupancy permits we’ll begin running a limited class schedule until we finish everything else up. Meanwhile, we’ll be updating the blog with weekly updates and will post more frequent updates to the CFPD Facebook Page.

Thanks again for all of your patience! This whole process is certainly taking longer than we had anticipated, but we’re certainly happy with how everything is turning out so far and we hope to be opening our doors soon! Until then, stay dry, keep warm, and avoid Girl Scout cookies like the plague (unless they are the Peanut Butter Patties, which are extremely healthy for you… right?).


CrossFit Pearl District T-Shirts!

by Jeff, Coach on February 7, 2011 · 0 comments

Just put in an order for 30 (8 small, 12 medium, 6 large, 4 x-large) CrossFit Pearl District American Apparel 50/50 T-shirts.  They will be arriving in 14 days, which means I have 14 days to figure out how to GIVE them away for FREE!  My goal is to give out one or two each day.  Details on how to obtain one of these sweet shirts will be posted on our CFPD Facebook page and/or blog.

While I don’t want to make any requirements to win these shirts, it should probably be noted that shipping 30 t-shirts off to the far off reaches of the world probably won’t happen… so unless we are long lost BFF’s, you should probably plan on picking up your free t-shirt at the gym or in the Portland area if you win!

Sound cool?  First person to like us on facebook and mention this post gets the first of many FREE t-shirts! Ready? GO!

Hey everyone! Welcome to the CrossFit Pearl District Blog! We are currently waiting on some building/occupancy permits from the city, but once those are approved we will be about 2 weeks out from opening!  Until then, check back here often for status updates, and other news about CFPD.
