Hello BlackBox Family!

 

We wanted to send you an email explaining a few changes that will soon be coming to the gym. Before I get to that, I feel I must give you a little background on our journey with the gym.

Danny and I have had the honor of having BlackBox Strength & Conditioning/CrossFit ATM as our family since 2006. At that time, Dutch Lowy owned and operated the box. We fell in love with the workouts, our coach, the lifestyle, and the community. In 2008, Dutch approached Danny and me with the opportunity to own and run BlackBox. We were so excited to have the chance to continue to build onto the outstanding community that we had grown to love.

The box started out as a garage gym in Dutch’s backyard. It then moved to our garage in our backyard, and about 3 and 1/2 years ago we finally opened up a commercial location for BlackBox Strength & Conditioning. Over the years this place has been a source of hope, dreams, goals, visions, refuge, laughter, joy, and excitement. It has been a place where people come to let off steam, to be encouraged, to be inspired, and to do the same for others! Not only do we consider BlackBox our family, but Danny and I have literally grown a family at the gym (a little two year old and now another on the way!) The people at BlackBox have been Aunts and Uncles to our little one and our family is better for being part of this community.

In the past few years and with the new additions to our family, we have come to realize the challenges of owning a business and having a growing family. With our time torn between raising a child (along with growing another) and maintaining a thriving business, we have found that we want more for the community at BlackBox. We believe that the athletes and coaches do need more from us in order to grow and to continue to thrive. It is our desire to see that growth come, but Danny and I have found that we cannot offer everything BlackBox needs, at this time.

With these realization and challenges in our forefront, we have decided to ask Dutch Lowy to come back to BlackBox as sole owner. Danny and I believe that this transition is in the best interest of the coaches and athletes at the gym. We believe that he will be able to give the box the attention it needs for it to be a thriving and growing community. We are excited to see the changes! We wanted to send out this letter to let you know, that Danny and I are no longer your owners at BlackBox. BUT that does not mean we are going anywhere! We will still continue to coach, workout, and play at the box! We have loved beinga part of your lives and we are hopeful and excited for the new things to come!
Many Blessings!

 

Jordan, Danny, Max, & Baby

 

 

A letter from the Lowy Family:

My BlackBox People,

 

I’m incredibly saddened that Danny and Jordan are stepping down from their ownership role at BlackBox College Station.  Over the years I’ve grown to love and respect them and look forward to years of good times with them and their growing family.  I am thrilled with what they have done with BlackBox over the last 5 years and am eager to get started making it even better for you.

I will be working closely with the current team at BlackBox to provide you with a quality of service that stands above all other gyms in the BCS.  Going forward there will be a couple changes that I hope you notice.  Things like a more regular cleaning of the gym, better social media reach and a commitment to updating equipment and training methods.  These are just a small sampling of the things we have in store for you.

I say we because I won’t be doing this alone.  I am blessed to have family in College Station that is as passionate about building a strong healthy community as I am.   Many of you may already know Carisse Lowy from her coaching and overall out going personality but many of you may not know that she also has experience in event planning, marketing, staff management and customer service. Carisse will be working closely with you to make sure you are reaching your goals and loving your time at the box.

This amazing community has been built because of your dedication, hard work, and lifelong friendships.  We are truly grateful for the investment you have made in us but more importantly, yourselves.  We are honored to get to work with you.

I am looking forward to getting to know everyone down there again just like I did back in 2008.  You will see me in the gym more regularly as the transition goes forward.  Please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself and tell me what we can do to make BlackBox a better experience for you.

Onward!
