I wanted to thank our CrossFit community and extended Valdosta community for coming together this past week. You guys and gals are truly incredible and the generosity and support you gave meant everything to the Pyles family. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they will continue to need your love and energy.
Please continue to share and contribute to the Jessica Pyles Memorial Fund, c/o Heritage Bank of the South, P.O. Box 3880 Valdosta GA 31604.
It is with extreme sadness to say that myself as well as our CrossFit Valdosta has lost a very special member of our family. Jess Pyles passed away this morning in a tragic car accident on her way to work. We are working on setting up an account in Lieu of flowers to benefit Cora and Doms's College future. We will also be setting up a meal train. Please keep all of the family in your thoughts in prayers during this heartbreaking time.
Joe has asked that you do not send flowers but instead we are setting up an account to benefit Cora and Dom. Keep posted as we will post details. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.

For the past 6 months I had the pleasure of coaching an amazing athlete and person here @ CFV. CrossFit Valdosta athlete Amanda W. made some huge gains both mentally and physically in those 6 months. Everyday she brightened up the 6am crew with her constant smile and positivity. We had to say goodbye to Amanda this AM as she will be moving back home. Amanda we thank you for the time we had with you and wish you all the best. You made a lasting impression and showed us all how to be better and work harder.
CFV Saturday class is @ 9am tomorrow!!! "Bring a Friend or Family Member" out to WOD with you.
