For everyone not on Facebook ...
I've started this letter about twenty times in the last half hour and it's just not coming out ...
I am resigning as head coach of CrossFit V16 to move down to Los Angeles/Orange County. The truth is, I don't really like any of you. (Man, I'm glad I got that off my chest.)
I have other ambitions and a daughter down south. There was never going to be a perfect time to leave so I pulled the trigger because it had to be pulled. I will be here through the end of December as your coach/trainer. (There's about a 50/50 chance you'll see my in January taking a class with you. But no later than February 1, I am out of the Bay Area.)
When I made this decision a few months ago, I immediately reached out to Zachary Centurion Seale and asked him to consider being my replacement. Why Zach? He's an amazing trainer and a competitive CrossFitter. His classes are fun to take. He's extremely approachable. He's not as handsome as I am but fuck, no one is perfect (try not to stare at his crooked teeth). Fortunately for everyone, he accepted!
It has been an absolute pleasure coaching you guys (and coaching at Great Western Power Company) for the last 6 years. I have loved going to work because of you. I have been blessed to see you grow as athletes and as people. I'm going to miss you.
PS Zach is more handsome than me, has perfect teeth, but I totally have him beat on age and bad, bad, bad jokes.
