Small Business Highlight – January 2019

It’s that time of year – time for goal setting and new year’s resolutions. For most, one of the top things on the list is eating healthier and getting fit. In order to help you on your way, we’d like to introduce you to a local gym and local food service both owned by our friends and clients.



Friend that Cooks Personal Chefs

Friend That Cooks Personal Chefs offer weekly meal prep for families in the Kansas City metro area. Busy schedule? Check! Food allergies or special dietary needs? Check! Want to eat healthier this year? Check Check Check! We send a talented personal chef to your home for a half day every week to shop, cook, clean up and stock your refrigerator with a week’s worth of healthy prepared meals to reheat. Our chefs are carefully selected and trained. We prepare all your meals from scratch with fresh ingredients. We prefer local ingredients and we shop where you want us to shop. Friend That Cooks charges a reasonable hourly rate for our services. An average family spends $150-$200 per week on meal prep, plus the cost of groceries. Our clients have a lot of control over the cost for their service. You decide how much or how little food you need. And all menus are completely customized for each individual household each week, so no set menus!
We are the most affordable chef service of our kind in the metro.

Envision a place where you can go to not only improve your health but become part of a community that will support your aspirations in and out of the gym.  At Overland Park CrossFit, we believe we are more than a gym.  We are a community of strong, healthy individuals who work hard, play hard, and have fun.  You’ll create a network of peers to be accountable to and achieve results you never knew were possible. 
We design programs to get you in the best shape of your life, under the guidance of highly skilled coaches. We don’t believe in wandering around the gym wondering what to do, endless hours of running on a treadmill, or months of using the same machines without seeing real results. As part of the Overland Park CrossFit family, you’ll be guided, motivated, and coached every step of the way through unique and structured workouts.
Our guiding principles are:
  • To always provide the highest possible quality of facility, coaching, and results to our members.
  • To be a positive influence in our community and focus on giving back in the form of charity, community events, and philanthropic work.
  • To give our members opportunities to effectively train within the gym so they can live a better, healthier, and longer life outside of it.
Come join our community and become the best version of you!
