Message From Scott

CrossFit Charlottesville – I’ve been meaning to get this message out for a little while now, but it’s been difficult because it seems a little surreal.  My wife, Nicole, recently finished her residency and we are taking a vacation to visit my family in Wyoming and then her family in Florida. I don’t think there’s a perfect time to announce things like this, but as I’m sitting here processing things I figured it was better late than never.
The short: I’m going to be stepping down as general manager of the gym towards the end of July/early August.  Sidenote: You’ll still see my around the gym as I’ll still be training classes and working out.
The long: As you can guess, this was an incredibly tough decision for me, but I felt like it was the right decision as Nicole and I begin a new chapter of our lives now that she is done with her residency at UVA.  As many of you know, we’ll be moving to the Crozet area to be closer to Nicole’s job at AMC in Fishersville.  The decision to step down didn’t happen overnight – it was the result of a lot of back and forth with the owners of the gym (Kyle, Landon, and Chris) about what the next steps would be for me and for the gym once Nicole and I found out that we’d be staying in the area.  I am still in the process of figuring out what the next steps are for me personally and professionally, as my last day as GM has been in flux for a couple of months now.  My plan is to make the transition smooth and successful for everyone, so I expect to be helping out in an administrative role through some point in August.  Also, like I mentioned, I will of course be around in the future and will continue to train classes, so I won’t be leaving the gym entirely!  I will, regrettably, no longer be “Mr. Manager”, though : )
The gym has been my home since 2010, and it’s all because of the community that we’ve all built together.
You’re obviously wondering who will be taking over for me – his name is McDowell Myers and he has been a full-time trainer at CrossFit South Brooklyn for 5.5 years. He has been doing CrossFit since 2008, and he and his family have been looking to relocate to the Charlottesville area for some time.  You will see him around the gym very soon, and I know he is really looking forward to getting to know everyone and train classes.  I know you will all make him feel at home.  As I’m getting this message posted, some of you may have already had a chance to meet him around the gym.
I wanted to share the news sooner but it’s been a hectic couple of weeks for me and my wife as we get things ready for our future move.  I know some people have heard rumors of me “leaving”, but I wanted to let everyone know I’m not going anywhere and that my role in the gym is the only thing that will change.  Please continue to reach out to me with any membership issues or questions like normal through July/August.
Thank you all again for making CrossFit Charlottesville such an amazing gym to run.  See you all soon.
