The Why Behind Wanting To Help You

CrossFit Oshkosh is entering its fourth year of operation.  Over time things have changed, people have come and gone, and we have been through the clichéd “ups and downs.”  Recently I sat down and started to think about where we once were, where we are, and where we are going.  This made me laugh and[…]
