Farewell, Darla….


I’d like us to all take a moment while we collectively let the lights dim on the Fight Tonight stage as the one-and-only Darla Day Haynsworth, aka Broadway, aka 5,6,7,8, aka long femurs, aka someone-give-that-girl-a-stage, gets ready to leave FTCF for the blue skies and Chick-Fil-A’s of Colorado Springs. Broadway has been a fierce regular at Fight Tonight usually in the morning but sometimes gracing the evening classes with her presence.  She loves Jesus, her family, and CrossFit shirts with fun sayings, in that order.  No one brings the energy or the 8 counts to the gym like Darla does.  She is usually not all talk, either!  This girl has made some serious progress!  Although you would never know it based on her crazy antics she was actually scared of being upside down, one of her goals for 2017 was to get more comfortable being inverted and with some practice and pressure from the coaches Darla has not only been able to check this goal off her list she has hit several other PRs as well! A regular competitor at GirlFit and at our local throwdown no one hits the black mat with the intensity of Darla Day.  This girl is all business when she steps onto the competition floor putting her heart into each event using laser-like focus to get herself through each rep.  Check out her game face!13147867_600666896757907_838774197916313325_o

Darla has been a contributing member of our community welcoming new people with open arms and showing them the way because she is nosy folks 😉 You are one of a kind, Broadway and will be truly missed.
