  • January 2019 Member of the Month - Klarissa Hennessey!


    We've always been super proud of our amazing members, but we've never done a formal "Member of the Month" until now.. We figured.. we've only been around for 120 months.. might as well start in 2019, right?!

    So here we are!  Our first member of the month is Klarissa Hennessey!  She's 14 years young.  You read that right.. 14!  Klarissa comes to CFH with her mom and dad, Michele and Rusty.  They're awesome role models and love doing CrossFit together as a family!  She was a former gymnast and is a cheerleader.  She took to CrossFit very quickly and has developed a huge love for the gym!

    We chose her as an athlete of the month for many reasons.  She's a coaches dream, for one!  So coachable, a great listener, and is very respectful and open to feedback.  From there, she's got a positive attitude and always gives her all.  We asked her a few questions about her time a CFH and here's what she had to say:

    How long have you been doing CrossFit?  7 Months

    What do you like most about CrossFit Hanover? What I like the most is the coaches and the team atmosphere; everyone is so supportive.

    What is your favorite type of workout? I love long grinder WODs!

    What is your favorite movement? My favorite movements are deadlifts and handstand pushups.

    Is there anything you've learned about yourself since starting CrossFit? I've learned that I am stronger than I ever thought I was and that I hav a lot of hard work had to accomplish my goals.

    Klarissa has been crushing it since day one and is super excited about the 2019 CrossFit Games Open.  We'd like to wish her the best of luck in her journey!  We'll be supporting her 100% of the way!

  • What's going on around CFH - Summer 2018 Update Edition!

    In case you haven't noticed, we aren't over by the North Hanover Mall, anymore!  We are so excited to formally announce that we moved to 604 Frederick Street.. we're just about a half mile outside the square in the old auto-shop next to the Staub's Landing, one of Hanover's staple restaurants!  

    Our new space, nearly 4 times as big as our former location, is going to allow us to continue expanding and bringing in new members while providing space for more class options, more equipment, and more fun!!  

    Be on the lookout for some Open House dates as we work to complete the construction at the new place!  If you don't already follow us on social media, do so!  We're constantly posting pics and videos from the new facility!  We're also planning some summer parties, group intro programs, certifications, a GRAND OPENING celebration at the new place.  Keep those eyes peeled!

  • The 2018 Games Season is UPON US!

    The CrossFit Games Open is upon us and CrossFit Hanover is ready to rumble!  

    Not sure what the Open is?  School yourself quick..



    So now that you're up to speed, you'll be pumped to hear that CrossFit Hanover has nearly 80 people participating in the Open!  We are so excited.. we've got 4 teams lined up..

    Team "Salute the Glutes"
    Team "Jacked in the Box"
    Team "Kettlebell Cavalry"
    Team "'Merican Muscle"


    Starting February 22 and running for 5 weeks, CrossFit Hanover will be following the CrossFit Games format for the open.  Each Sunday, we'll rally as a group and run the Open Workouts. Do we have anyone who's going to end up going to the CrossFit Games?  

    ABSOLUTELY NOT!

    But do we care?  ABSOLUTELY NOT!  This is all about fun, community, and supporting each other.  Besides which, it's a great opportunity for our members to put their skills on display and to show exactly how hard they've been working.  It's a friendly competition at CrossFit Hanover, and we're thrilled to be a part of the Open!
