WOW!!! I have never experienced something like CrossFit Blacksburg ever before.

WOW !!!  I have never experienced something like CrossFit Blacksburg ever before. It serves a multitude of purposes for me personally. What I recall is going from fitness center to fitness center with a 5 year sleeping boy on my hip to inquire about a future plan in pursuing fitness. Most places barely talked to me and hardly even acknowledge me because they seemed put out. The...

Jodi Shares Her Experience With Her Second Pregnancy

Good morning coaches! Just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you all so much for everything you've done for me throughout my pregnancy with Lawson. ((I'm a little sleep deprived, so I'll make this short and hopefully coherent)) I have no doubts in my mind that CrossFit kept us both healthy and happy throughout the entire nine months. I felt great during the entire pregna...

Margaret Perkins Tell Her Story

I am “totally” stepping out of my comfort zone writing this testimonial, but the coaches have made request several times.  I am finding hard to decline to do something for others who have done so much for me.  I walked into Crossfit Blacksburg after much encouragement and prodding from my daughter “you need to talk to Jesse”.  I was losing strength, ...

“I am stronger, I have more energy, I understand my body better…”

"May 7th was my 4 year anniversary at CrossFit Blacksburg! What a fabulous 48 months it has been. I am stronger, I have more energy, I understand my body better, I eat healthier and I have a new community of colleagues of all ages. Thanks to all the coaches for the earnest attention and expertise to helping me meet my fitness goals and more. I challenge anyone over 50 to get ...

“I’m happy to call the athletes of CrossFit Blacksburg my teammates!

"I’ve been thinking about writing this email for some time and what exactly I would say to express my gratitude for all that CrossFit Blacksburg has done for me!  A year has flown by and I couldn’t be more thrilled to continue to be part of CrossFit Blacksburg! (Woohoo for more WODs!)  A year ago, I decided I needed a change, I had a feeling that something was missing ...

“CrossFit has given me the ability to say, sure, I’ll try that.  Why not.”

"CrossFit is the first physical fitness program that has ever stuck for me (hey, you can learn new tricks at 43!) and for that reason alone I can recommend it to anyone. Specifically the community created at CrossFit Blacksburg has made me feel welcome, able and committed to continuing this for so long. Practical health points: CrossFit took 4 inches off my waistline and that 4 inches ha...

Notice that I did not say “cross fit” I said CrossFit Blacksburg”... There is a big difference.

So since graduating and leaving Blacksburg in May, I really have to say I miss CrossFit Blacksburg.  Notice that I did not say "cross fit" I said "CrossFit Blacksburg".... There is a big difference.  I just went to my first cross fit class near my hometown in MA... lets just say it was VERY different.  I want to say how grateful, appreciative, proud and lucky we all s...

The group workouts for me and my wife are… life changing

My entire family goes to Crossfit Blacksburg. They have a wonderful kids and teens program, and the group work outs for me and my wife are, quite simply, life changing. Being 44, dropping 20 lbs (so far) in 8 months, getting myself off of Lipitor and out of the threat of onset diabetes, as well as being able to do pull ups for the first time in 23 years, is just simply priceless. ...

Postpartum Mom

I started at CFBB 2 years ago, after I decided it was finally time to do something about my postpartum body - my youngest was 10 at the time . I had never incorporated exercise into my life, other than walking my dogs, which I do a lot. I was very nervous to go into classes with fit young coeds and cadets.  I'm old enough to be their mother! I was very surprised at how wel...

Regardless of age or starting fitness level

This is by far the best CrossFit gym that I have worked out at, and I recommend anyone thinking of joining the world of CrossFit to start here! The coaches are extremely knowledgeable and work very hard to prevent you from injuring yourself due to poor form. The workouts are programed to get the most out of everyone regardless of age or starting fitness level, and the results will...
