What are people saying about CrossFit Forever Strong
My history as an athlete started when I was 6 years old. In 20 short years, I had competed in high levels of gymnastics, Olympic weight lifting, track, ran 6 marathons, 3 century bike races and an ultra marathon. When I started a family, I found myself needing more! When I found CrossFit Foreverstrong, I knew I hit the jackpot! Not only did this gym have the fitness aspect that I needed but also most importantly, it had the camaraderie I had been missing. CrossFit Foreverstrong is not just a gym; it is a family and a strong community of people who care about your physical as well as your emotional health.
This gym has the best coaches. Under the direction of its’ owner, Jason, the coaching staff is always being motivated and instructed on how to keep the members safe and happy.
CrossFit Foreverstrong is the largest, most versatile gym space I’ve seen. Jason has made it so that the environment is conducive to meeting the needs and goals of EVERY member. This gym is diverse! We’ve got old members, young members, regional competitors, overweight folks looking to change their life, and everything in between! That makes the gym welcoming to every fitness ability.
I am passionate about this gym, because it’s not just a gym; it’s family.
I was introduced to Crossfit and Crossfit Forever Strong three years ago by a friend. He knew I was trying to lose weight and get in shape, and was struggling to do so at one of the Globo Gyms even though I was spending an average of 2 hours a night there. When I first met Jason he asked me what my goals were and I told him that I wanted to lose weight, feel better, get off the 3 medications I was taking daily for high cholesterol and high blood pressure and look better. Jason smiled and told me he can help me with all that but only if I was committed. I did the one week free trial and even though I was doing severely modified WOD’s, it was the hardest I’d worked out since I was in high school! I was very embarrassed and my times were always dead last on the white board. But I pushed through the workouts out of determination and also because all the other members of Forever Strong would be there cheering me on. I started seeing results and lost 45 lbs, and no longer had to take medications for high blood pressure and cholesterol. I was still not where I wanted to be. Jason and Bruce taught me that you also had to eat differently to build muscle, gain strength and lose fat. Three years later at age 49, I can honestly say I’m in the best shape of my life and have reached my goals I set 3 years ago. I now have new goals that I have no doubt I can attain with the help and guidance of Jason, Bruce and my second family at Crossfit Forever Strong!
Crossfit is a workout like no other. It challenges me to my very last ounce of strength. At Crossfit Forever Strong, Jason and the coaches have helped push me beyond what I ever thought I could do. Jason’s programming is the best, and he really has our safety and physical well being in mind at all times. I love the open gym format! I can work out around my schedule. I enjoy being able to take extra time to work on olympic weight lifting skills, or cardio training, or whatever I feel I need to reach my own goals. I have been recovering from an injury, and Jason and the coaches have been so helpful in modifying the WODs for me so I can still progress towards my goals. Whether you are new to crossfit, or are a seasoned WOD beast, Crossfit Forever Strong will bring out the animal in you.
