    Thank you for being there for all of our firsts!
    Our first class
    Our first taste of community
    Our first class on paleo
    Our first total defeat with FRAN or MURPH etc….
    Our first Rx’d WOD
    Our first pull-up, muscle up, pistol or hand-stand push up
    Our first PR
    Our first pulled muscle
    Our first 5k (something I have not experienced yet)

    You get the picture, we wouldn’t be in the shape we are in without your hard work and efforts everyday.

    CFHSV athletes appreciate you putting us all FIRST!

    Eric..well said. I have been a member of Crossfit Huntsville for more than 5 years now. I am…well….old. Lets just leave it at that. Crossfit Huntsville is one of the top 5 most transformational things that has ever happened to me. Right up there with Carol Pepe, my dog Natcho and Jesus. I travel all over the world and visit Crossfit boxes everywhere. We flat out have the best of everything right here. The best coaches, the best athletes, the best community, the best facility.

    Lunch time crew was off the chain today. Mac invited me to partner up and then he commenced to crush front squats and strict press. Adam and Dennis coached us up and everyone seems to genuinely be pulling for each other. What a crazy week. Oh, and did y’all notice that Paul McCrary is a monster on a collision course with the 2015 games? Everybody come out on Saturday. Cause it’s TIME TO PAY THE BILLS. #ttptb

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
