Making Change: CrossFit Kennett Square
“When you walk into CrossFit Kennett Square, you’ll find a welcoming, happy, and humble community of members of various ages and ability levels from all walks of life,” says head coach and general manager Everett Gordon. Since 2012, the CFKSQ team has been changing lives and changing perceptions of what a gym and a workout can be.
The coaches bring diverse athletic backgrounds and experiences to CFKSQ, Everett says, but what they all have in common is that they care. “Our mission is to know every member and their individual fitness goals, and we strive to provide the training, education, support, and motivation to meet these goals,” Everett says. “Once someone believes in their ability, they gain a confidence that allows them to change their perspective.”
Another unique aspect of the CFKSQ approach is that this community extends beyond the four walls of the gym. “We want members to thrive, enjoy life, and be prepared for life’s obstacles,” Everett says. Events such as pub nights, BBQs, fundraisers, and hero workouts, in addition to celebrating “gym anniversaries,” recognizing athletes of the month, and introducing new members, all help to build relationships and community.
“Members support each other like family,” Everett says. “When there’s a need, members band together to meet it.” CFKSQ is an independent small business, owned by locals Michael and Jenifer Haggarty, John Wilkins, and Nathalie Matte. They’re dedicated to building a healthy community not only through fitness training, but also through charitable giving and supporting other local small businesses. “When you choose us,” Everett says, “you’re helping to build and sustain a thriving local economy right here in Kennett Square.”
