GO HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE "HERO WOD"
***We have a few Pioneer Memberships still available. At the onset of this journey we set out to round up and enlist 50 members who were important to us and most importantly who exemplified "A Fitness State of Mind". It is with these first 50 members that we will blaze a trail and leave our mark. We are nearing that number of 50.
Our current pricing model is $200/mo. for unlimited Functional Training classes, CrossFit and Yoga. Pioneer Members receive HALF-OFF pricing and are grandfathered in at that price! We will sell out on our Grand Opening so if you have friends or family that you want to impact NOW is the time to join. If you can't make it on Saturday May 17th, you can still sign up here.
As for our chosen charity for that weekend (one of many in the future) Here is Danny Dietz's Story...
Danny Dietz Jr. was born on January 26, 1980 in Aurora, Colorado. He was the son of Danny Phillip Sr. and Cindy Dietz, and brother to Tiffany Bitz and Eric Dietz. He was a 1999 graduate of Heritage High School in Littleton, Colorado. He earned his black belt in Taekwondo from the Korean Academy of Taekwondo.
Dietz enlisted in the Navy on August 31, 1999. Following his graduating from Recruit Training Command, Naval Station Great Lakes, on November 27, 1999, he completed Gunner's Mate "A" School at the Naval Air Technical Training Center in Pensacola, Florida.

From there he transferred to Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training and graduated with Class 232 in 2001. Dietz went on to attend the Basic Airborne Course at Fort Benning in Georgia, then SEAL Qualification Training and SEAL Delivery Vehicle Training. Immediately upon checking in at SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team 2 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, on November 8, 2001, he was assigned to Task Unit Bravo as the secondary SDV pilot and the Ordnance and Engineering Department head. In Virginia Beach, In April 2005, Dietz deployed with his Special Reconnaissance element to Afghanistan to support Naval Special Warfare Squadron TEN in the prosecution of the Global War on Terrorism.
His larger than lifesize bronze memorial in Littleton, Colorado was created by sculptor Robert Henderson of Canon City, Colorado. The South Wing of the Pacific Beacon Apartments at Naval Station San Diego is named Dietz Hall as well.
Dietz was part of an elite team of four SEALs on a reconnaissance mission "tasked with finding a key Taliban leader in mountainous terrain near Asadabad, Afghanistan," according to a Navy news release.
On June 28, 2005, SEAL Team 10 was assigned to kill or capture a high ranking Taliban leader in the Hindu Kush mountains.
The SEAL team was made up of Michael P. Murphy, Marcus Luttrell, Danny Dietz and Matthew Axelson. Luttrell and Axelson were the team's snipers while Dietz and Murphy were the spotters.
"They were spotted by anti-Coalition sympathizers, who immediately reported their position to Taliban fighters. A fierce gun-battle ensued between the four SEALs and a much larger enemy force with superior tactical position," the Navy release said.
The SEALs radioed for help, and a responding Chinook helicopter was shot down by a rocket-propelled grenade, killing eight more SEALs and eight Army Night Stalkers. It was the second worst single combat loss for the SEALs in SEAL history.
Dietz was the first casualty of the battle, and was killed before the helicopter's arrival.
