Life-Long Commitment

After joining CrossFit Blacksburg in February after a 5 year break form pretty much any form of regular exercise I learned quickly that two days enough was not going to cut it for me.  It started as an addiction and into the first week I upped the game to three times a week.  It didn't take long for me to realize that I was truly addicted and that I had made Crossfit...

I Have Never Been Happier or Healthier

"Hey CFBB!! I just wanted to send a quick email to thank each and every one of my coaches for being so awesome throughout the year and providing such fantastic support and encouragement. In all honesty, my sessions at CFBB are often times the highlight of my day.... and that's not because I have an incredibly boring life! I enjoy the people, the atmosphere, the workouts, the ...

We are work-a-holics and this is one of the first things that has made us both stop working

We are work-a-holics and this is one of the first things that has made us both stop working in the evenings that was just ours. It has been nice for us to have a chance to connect on the drive to blacksburg, and bond over how much we hate the WOD on the way home. ha! Jesse I guess I can't just thank you because we have been so very pleased with everyone we have worked with so I am go...

I have to thank you and each of the coaches for all the help the past year. You all really go above and beyond for each client and I can't thank you enough for the care you put in to guiding each member on their fitness journey.

For that, I just want to say THANK YOU

"Good Morning, Hope the new year is going well for you all. I just wanted to say that I appreciate what you guys have done for me at CrossFit Blacksburg & the impact that the motto "better than yesterday" has had on me. I found myself saying it quite a bit since being in the gym. However, more recently it has been helping me to push forward. My right lung collapsed last week, a...

Stay At Home Mom Finding Her “Thing”

"Sooooooo....I didn't tell you yesterday,  but thank you!! I really appreciate that you taught me and encouraged me and kicked my ass.  You were exactly who and what I needed, at exactly the right time. I have been trying to figure out things for a while doing the whole stay at home mom thing and losing my sense of self outside of Mom. I feel like I need to find me ...

Coach Andy Doing His Thing.

"I do not have his email address to send a "THANK YOU", I wanted you guys to know that Coach Andy was so helpful , yesterday, during the 11:30-12:30 class. Press: form, keeping bar level; 11# bar.  I feel like I owe CFB extra money - more like a private session.  It was very kind and quite helpful. Thank you CFB for all you do!"

Medical Student Goes From Quitting Medical School To Getting Life Back On Track

Has it been a year already? Holy smokes that's crazy.  To be honest, joining CrossFit Blacksburg has been one of the best decisions I've made the past year.  It's kind of a long story, but right before joining CrossFit Blacksburg, I was in a bad place in my life. All I cared about was school and unfortunately, I let my studies completely consume my life.&nb...

Better Pregnancy and Delivery With Second Baby!

"So I know I'd been away from CF for quite awhile before having the baby, but I'm convinced it made a difference! I had a 2 pound larger baby and got her out in less than half the time: 18 minutes!!! Additionally, I'm not weak and sore now. I could go play at the park with Eleanor less than 48 hours after delivery- Took me a week to WALK TO the park last time! ...

Helping With Physical Demands of New Job!

Grateful thanks to CrossFit Blacksburg! I just started a new job doing geophysical surveys that requires me to lift and carry oddly-shaped, heavy (up to 50 pounds) things over uneven terrain. There is lots of fun intellectual work, too, but first we have to collect the data. CrossFit Blacksburg has helped me not only to develop the strength to easily pick everything up, but also th...
