From the desk of the Head Coach


Thank you all for your continued interest and ongoing support as CrossFit Freedom prepares to open it's doors. As many of you already know, we're anxiously awaiting the completion of our tenant build out. Much of the delay has been attributed to the re-Zoning of the property, ordinances,  inspections and permit acquisitions. 


This past Friday we sat down with the Village of Libertyville, the property developer and building architect to discuss the project's current status, upcoming deadlines and expected date of occupancy. Collectively, we estimated the project would require three to four weeks  to complete making Saturday, March 19th, our opening day. 


That said, CrossFit Freedom will move forward with its plans to host each of the 6 workouts that make up the first round of the 2011 CrossFit Games Open (see below). Shortly thereafter we'll begin with scheduled intro sessions and  a scaled back schedule of our Group classes. 


In an effort to keep everyone informed and as a thank you for your continued interest and support, we'd like to invite all of you out for drinks and appetizers Sunday, March 13th at 5pm at Nirvana Wine and Grillerie (see below). 


If you have any questions at all about anything don't hesitate to contact us.  We greatly appreciate all of your patience and and cant wait to see you all at the box!
