MEMBER STORIES & TESTIMONIALS
I started at Live Long CrossFit at the end of February 2019, after switching from another box. I was a CrossFitter for about 1.5 years prior to my switch. Moving to a new fitness community was a very hard choice for me, but Audrey and the members at Live Long CrossFit made me feel like a part of the family from my very first WOD. After my first visit, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for! Since my first day, I have PRd several of my lifts, improved my overall technique, and made some amazing friends. Live Long CrossFit is not just a place where I go in, do the WOD, and leave. Instead, it is a place where I am motivated to work hard, all while having a ton of fun! Coach Audrey does an excellent job teaching the correct lifting techniques and individualizing WODs in order to ensure each athlete is working at their own level. I would recommend Live Long CrossFit to anyone!
As a full time working mom of three, I felt like I was falling behind and failing on everything: work, social life, home, and self. Conscious of my own postpartum depression, I knew I needed to make some changes before things began to spiral further. That all changed when I found Live Long CrossFit.
After my first onramp training session, I drove home in [joyful] tears. I was overwhelmed with self-pride, and happiness from the support shown by Coach Audrey & Desiree; who equally seemed excited for me to start this journey. I knew I had just participated in something great. And I knew that this was in the right place for me and my family.
Coach Audrey genuinely cares for each athlete, and not a single practice has gone by without feeling that from her. Every class I have pushed myself further than I thought possible- with an entire room filled with support. Since joining Live Long CrossFit, I have created friendships with amazing people, improved my mental and physical health, became a better employee, friend, wife and mom.
Why do I CrossFit with Live Long CrossFit? Because it is transforming me into the best version of myself, I have ever known.
I had been contemplating doing CrossFit for a few months because I needed something new to get me motivated. When I finally built up the courage I emailed Audrey and get more information, the moment she replied I knew I was going to love CrossFit! The thing I love about CrossFit is there is something for everyone, if you can't RX a workout there are multiple scaled options for you to complete. Another thing I love about CrossFit is the family aspect of it, everyone cheers everyone on! It is so supportive! It has changed not only my lifestyle but my life completely and I couldn't be more happy about it.
It took me a solid two years to make the leap and try CrossFit. I am SO glad that I finally did! I have become stronger and happier since starting at Live Long CrossFit. I find myself looking forward to seeing what the next work out will be, and pushing myself to work harder than last time. As a (part-time) working mom of three, I didn't think I'd have time to maintain a gym schedule but when you enjoy something this much, you find the time - even if it means working out at 5am. I love seeing the positive changes in my body and pushing myself to heights I never thought or knew I could achieve. Bonus - everyone is very welcoming and friendly, and we are all at different fitness levels so you are bound to find your own CrossFit “twin”.
I decided to join CrossFit in January of this year. I had tried all sorts of workouts, with friends as coaches to steer me in the direction that I wanted to go or going with them to different classes. But I always had minimal motivation and I found myself at an all-time low. I had a few people tell me how amazing CrossFit was, but it looked so intimidating and scary. I decided to take the leap and signed up for the on-ramp class and my life hasn't been the same since. What I like about it is how empowered I feel after a workout and how positive everybody is. My body is capable of doing things that I didn't know were possible. When I feel frustrated, my coaches and friends encourage me to keep moving and to not give up. I know that my fitness level is different from everyone else at the gym, but we all go and support each other, and I walk away feeling like I have accomplished something big today. Some days are small gains, some are huge, some days I even might take 2 steps back. But every time I step inside the gym, is another opportunity for me to just keep going! I can't say enough positive things about how Live Long CrossFit has changed my life and how all of the people there play a positive role. Surround yourself with positivity and you will see positive results in so many ways. Not just physical.
I joined Live Long CrossFit in 2019. I had a preventative double mastectomy just over a year earlier and hadn't been to a gym much since. I had all of these images in my head of what CrossFit was. Super fit people doing crazy moves that my big booty and not fully healed muscles would never do. I reached out a few times hesitantly to ask about classes and how they worked for people at different ability levels and felt super comfortable and welcomed with the responses I got from Desiree' and Audrey, so I went for it. What I found was a group of totally welcoming people and coaches who push you to work hard and achieve what is best for you. I have been able to do things that would have intimidated me and have been able to modifications for moves I'm not near doing yet. The atmosphere that is created is one of inclusion and support and I love it. I look forward to 5am classes of fun loving people who encourage and support each other. My husband joined a bit after I did, so we can push each other when we do classes together. Will I ever do a pull up or handstand? Who the heck knows, but I know there are coaches to help me get there and people around who will cheer like crazy if I ever do.

They make fun/challenging workouts everyday which has resulted in a level of conditioning I haven't had since school sports and I didn't think was possible at my age. The people there are great and I can't recommend them enough.
I came to Live Long CrossFit looking to get back into shape. I was nervous when I started. Would there be all of these muscle bound people? Would I fit in? Is CrossFit for me?I had many questions. I was so surprised when I joined! Everyone was so welcoming and encouraging. The coaches are so knowledgeable and they teach you every move and everything is scalable for all levels. Two months later and I feel great. I have a long way to go but the journey has been amazing!I love this place and it is the best gym ever! I found my tribe!!!
