“You will be encouraged and cheered…”

I joined CrossFit Blacksburg in October 2011. I have gone to class twice a week, EVERY week, since I started. I changed my diet to a close to paleo diet in September 2012, had great results, and have kept that diet (except for beer and chocolate!). I have also participated in workshops, challenges, and endurance training. In spite of all this activity, I have not "bulked up." It just ...

“The best decision I took regarding my health and fitness”

"Deciding to attend the CrossFit Bootcamp was the best decision I took regarding my health and fitness in the past 10 years. I always found working out in a gym boring and I couldn't stick to it for more than a few lessons.

39 year old soccer mom…Not just another gym

As a 39 year old soccer mom I was hesitant to join a gym. The minute I walked into CrossFit Blacksburg I knew that CrossFit was NOT just another gym. What I found were trainers who cared about my fitness and my success to becoming a better me, a sense of accomplishment every time I completed a workout, a class atmosphere that pushed me competitively, and gave me that sense of camerade...
