So, my first experience with Crossfit was horrible. For years I avoided it and even trashed talked it a bit (sorry!). But after my first class I was addicted. The community is AMAZING and completely opposite of my first experience. The work outs suck half the time, but the way I feel afterwards is amazing. I expected to hate it, and was so wrong. I actually look forward to that hour at the gym where I can push myself and learn about my strengths and weaknesses. It’s also be amazing for my mental health. The day before my foundations class I was so depressed I couldn’t get out of bed, that happened a lot. In the last three months I haven’t had a day like that and my anxiety has been better as well! It’s such a good feeling to know I found a healthy coping method that works.
Great positive place to workout, the coaches are very informative and instructive with technique and making sure injuries are prevented through helpful stretches. The community keeps me coming back and I consider this a home away from home.
When I first started going to the gym, I needed to use two types of inhalers just to breathe. I also needed a sleep apnea machine to help me sleep at night. After just 4 weeks, I no longer had to use any of my inhalers and I no longer needed my sleep apnea machine. One of the most positive impacts is my energy levels. I feel like I have more energy to do activities and enjoy life in general.
Corian is the best coach anyone could ask for. Love the atmosphere and the family feel during workouts. Everyone encourages everyone during workouts.
Dropped in to the Racine location while on vacation. Everyone was very welcoming and the coaches were great! The equipment and facility were well taken care of, and most importantly the workout was challenging and the coach took the time to break down the workout properly and add some strategy insights. Will definitely be back if I’m ever in Wisconsin again!
Dropped in while visiting the area. The gym is an impressive physical space, and the people were super friendly and welcoming. The coaches were great, and I thought it was really unique that they had two coaches for the class I was in (showed a dedication to teaching proper technique, and scaling appropriately). Would really recommend, and will drop in here again if I have the chance.
Great programming, awesome atmosphere, and best of all a wonderful community. I’ll be looking for a new box when I get back to Denver, hope something will meet my new expectations.
7Every day I get a little stronger. Every day I do something I never thought I could. Harbor Park CrossFit has filled a void in my life I didn’t even know existed. CrossFit has changed so much for me in these short 3 months. I have now lost a total of 60lbs! This was way past my goal and what I thought I could achieve.
I recall my first workout, going home afterwards and crawling into bed. I thought this to myself, “There is NO WAY that I can do that ever again, I will go back at least once more, but I doubt I’ll ever go back after that.” HA! Well now it is a year later and I cannot see myself NOT being a part of it. It’s not just the working out, it is the friends there, the family-like support I get from EVERYONE.
