Check it out Check it out Check it out!!!!

I am thrilled to be in the company of three amazing women as we set out on our new adventure!! 
I couldn't ask for a better team!!

Here's to fantastic new chapters! We just bought CrossFit Hickory!! Thank you Kent! 

FROM KENT: To my CrossFit Family,
I want to tell all of you, current and past members, thank you for allowing me to work with you and make a decent living for the past 10 years. As my family grows I feel the need to be more available for them and for Lisa. CrossFit Hickory will always be a part of me and I feel confident I‘m leaving you in good hands.
Thank you again,
Kent Stamey

We are so excited to announce a new change happening at CrossFit Hickory. 
Kent Stamey brought Crossfit to Hickory almost 10 years ago. As owner of CrossFit Hickory, he has been a coach and friend to many people in our community. He has instilled in us a great passion for Crossfit and for that we will be eternally grateful. Now, as he is ready to enter a new chapter in his life, he has allowed us to continue the CrossFit Hickory tradition as new owners.
You may know us as classmates or teachers, now we hope you will know us as partners in your journey to fitness! There are “modifications” at CrossFit Hickory and we beg your patience as we try new things, striving to serve your needs. We will add new equipment, new class times, and a new on-line membership system (WODIFY - look it up! It’s really neat!) We will “Re-Vamp the On-Ramp” curriculum and add more trainers. There are exciting times ahead!
There is one thing, however, that we are dedicated to preserving: the community feel of CrossFit Hickory. We see each other as family, and we see you as family, too. Please feel free to ask questions, share concerns, or make suggestions! We love hearing what you want (and don’t want) and will take all ideas into consideration no matter how big or small.
Many thanks to Kent for trusting us with his “baby”.
Many thanks to you for trusting us with your health.
This is gonna be great!!
Your workout partners,

Frankie Bruno Amy Chang Christine Getty Carrie Schafer

How many times have you said to yourself,
“Boy, would I like to see Frankie Bruno kiss a cow?” 
Ok, never, but here's your chance to make that happen! 
I am participating in a fun and charitable event called 
“Kiss the Cow”
I'm with a group of people who have generously
volunteered to allow the public to "vote" (by means of donations)
To see one of us kiss a COW!
Yes, Bessie, or one of her friends,
flossed and puckered up - ready for one of us!
The individual who receives the most votes
(donations in their honor)
will have to pucker up and kiss Ole’ Bessie. 
The reason I am willing to place myself in front of a cow’s kisser is to help raise funds for
Habitat for Humanity of Catawba Valley,
A mission I truly believe in!!
The Kiss the Cow contest will take place during Habitat Night at the Hickory Crawdads game on July 17.
Your "vote" (donation) is completely tax deductible.
Now is the time to cast your vote to see me plant a big one on a cow!
Donating is simple. 
Just go to 
and click on the donate button. Fill out the form and in the
“additional comments” section at the bottom of the page,
be sure to include “IN HONOR OF FRANKIE BRUNO. 
You can also send donations to Habitat or make your donation
the night of the game. That's all there is to it. 
Contact me if you have any questions and I hope to see you on July 17!
