My experience has been wonderful. The coaches are amazing. They accept you for what you are, meet you where you’re at, and inspire you to be your best. Justin, Galen, Marty, and Steve lead by example. They are not only exceptional at the sport of CrossFit, they excel at teaching it to participants of all fitness and skill levels. Their attention to detail makes members feel empowered and safe. The coaches provide individualized instruction and coaching based on needs, personality, and learning styles. They are very patient and compassionate and their communication and instructional skills are second to none. Justin, Galen, Marty, and Steve are gifted in the art of reading people and knowing what they need (when to push you, when to pull in the reins a bit). They have a very well-designed and carefully planned program that includes many aspects of the sport and mobility is emphasized. They make fitness fun.
It goes beyond fitness, sometimes our biggest battles are in our heads. A huge part of what they have done for me is helping me overcome fears, destroy self-imposed limitations, and conquer negative thoughts. The coaches are great at working around injury/illness and view obstacles as opportunities for growth. This is a community, a family — it is so much more than an exercise program. Some of the benefits I’ve seen have been increased physical health, improved nutrition, better sleep, overcoming fears, and increased confidence. I have learned to trust not only in my coaches but also in myself.
423 really is for everyone. If you are an elite athlete, you will be amazed at how much better you will get. If you are a beginner, don’t fear! You just have to be willing to show up, learn, and trust the process. You will surprise yourself. Sometimes being strong doesn’t mean lifting the most weight or running the fastest. Sometimes being strong comes from overcoming obstacles, fighting battles, and proving to yourself that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. You are worth it!
