Living in a small town has it's advantages. One of them being that news travels fast, so by now most people will have already heard about the heart attack Todd suffered last week. Todd was just getting started with the Banks Country Fitness family, so Bethany and I have not yet had the opportunity to really get to know the Iverson family, but our hearts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.  It looks like Todd is on the road to a strong recovery. Never the less we have already volunteered the Banks Country Fitness family as helping hands if there is anything we can help with. We will keep everyone updated as we hear more or if we can help in any way.

This unfortunate event really got me to thinking about why it's so important to take our health seriously. So often we get caught up in the daily grind that we can lose sight of what's truly important. We strive to give our children everything we can, save for retirement, vacations, a bigger house, etc. but the one thing we so easily lose sight of is the most important thing of all (FAMILY). In the end, I believe that if you stopped and asked any close family member whether they would rather have that materialistic item they have been dreaming about or YOU healthy and living they will unanimously say YOU. Regardless of whether you choose Banks Country Fitness as part of your health plan or strike off into something different please take the time to make your health a priority. We owe it to ourselves, but most importantly we owe it to our FAMILY!!!

Again our prayers go out to the Iverson family as we wish Todd a speedy recovery!!

The Exline's & BCF Family!!

“Be Country Tough”
~The Exline’s


Don't Forget Where You Started....

Recently our morning class had a visitor by the name of Rohan Murphy. Rohan travels the country as a inspirational speaker and although we didn't have a chance to talk much, I was very impressed with his demeanor and ability to just watch and listen. I could see why so many people have been inspired by his story. I was also impressed with our members taking the time to make him feel at home. It got me to thinking about something that makes CrossFit and Banks Country Fitness special. It's the opportunities to build relationships outside of your daily circle. We are part of Banks Country Fitness for a variety of reasons, but let's not forget the power of friendships!

We have been very growing quickly over the last three months, which is exciting, but with that growth comes the opportunities for things to get lost in the shuffle. We don't want the feeling of Banks Country Fitness being an extended family to be one of those things that disappear.  So when those new members walk through that door make sure you take the time to introduce yourself and give them a little encouragement because it hasn't been that long since each and everyone of us walked up those stairs not quite sure what to expect. It can be a bit overwhelming at first, but as so many can attest, if you stick with it the results will follow. Help be a part of the glue that helps them stick.

After all we all remember that first week:)  

Thanks Rohan for Inspiring so Many!!
