I have been going to CFV for 6 months, and the difference in my health and fitness has been incredible. My routine combines attending at least 3 “level one” classes per week (usually more) plus one personal training session with Kurt. All of the trainers at this gym are elite-level trainers who are fun people to be around despite no-BS asskickers.
Be forewarned: CrossFit is not for everybody. If you want to go to a nice, clean, comfortable place to chat with people and dick around on machines for 45 minutes a day, skip CrossFit. It is ultra-challenging, no matter who you are or what your fitness level is. Workouts are scaled to fit the fitness level of the person doing the workout (we have 20 year olds and 60 year olds, the very, very fit and the less so), but that doesn’t mean that the person who arrives in somewhat sloppy, out of shape condition (like me) gets a break. You will lift heavy weight, lift and press your bodyweight, and run. There is no A/C, there are no machines (except rowing machines) and there is no coddling. If you aren’t willing to put in hard work, and you aren’t willing to sweat, and you aren’t willing to feel pain, and you aren’t willing to push yourself, CrossFit (and this gym) will break your spirit.
If you are willing to put in the work, you will be rewarded with tremendous improvement in your form, technique and fitness level, a community of great people to motivate you, and an absolutely incredible sense of accomplishment at what you are able to achieve every day. I will probably never be the type of athlete that the best people at CFV are. But I will be the best athlete that I can be.
