It’s hard to even begin to explain what Cascade Crossfit has done for me.  I entered the gym for the 1st time, overweight and very out of shape.  I started so slow, doing a modified workout every time.  My goal was simply to finish.  The people and trainers were so encouraging.  Some even running or rowing with me even after they’d finished their workout.  I notice changes in my body both in strength and shape.  I’d gotten to the point that my body couldn’t wait to go back in to the gym.  It didn’t take long for everyday tasks to become easier.  Now, I no longer do a modified workout and my goal has become to not come in last.  It has given me such confidence that now I am even training to run a 5k with my son.  I know I can do it!  Thank you to all the trainers and members.  I expect to continue seeing improvement in myself and everybody.

My first time in Cascade I felt WAY more welcome than any other gym, everyone was so nice and the coaches really focused on the members. I can’t tell you how many other gyms I have been to where the coaches text all class and don’t care what their members are doing. I really appreciated the coaching and encouragement from every one of them. Once I found my groove at Cascade, I knew I wasn’t going anywhere. My groove has been the 3:30pm class, it tends to be a bit of a boys club every day with a lot of the same guys. I literally look forward to it every day, for the workout and as well as seeing all my friends. I have made some incredible friendships at this gym, and it is but a side note to how much CF has changed my life. I really owe a lot to Cascade, crossfit has helped me find more focus in my life, it has pushed my physical capacity, my can do attitude, and all of that has carried over to every other aspect of my life. I can honestly say Cascade Crossfit has changed my life for the better in all aspects.

Like most women, I had never lifted weights before and I was pretty intimidated by all these things I’d never heard of “Thrusters”, “Cleans”, “Jerks”  etc… not to mention these amazing gals that seemed to just tossed these weights around like they were feathers!!  My first workout after Fundamentals….. BARBARA… are you kidding me….boy was that humbling!! The coaches here are all great; so helpful and patient, at first helping me learn the movements; extremely helpful in helping me swallow my pride!!….  and now helping me improve my form and technique.  The members and coaches here are truly what keep me coming back.  What an amazing, supportive, STUDLY group of people!! It was Ruthy who pushed me to try my first workout RX….she certainly had more confidence in me than I did…but I finished it and it was such a great feeling!  My first pull up without a band was pretty cool too!! I love seeing the new members get something new – watching them go through all these same “firsts” and I love seeing more established members push themselves, getting new PR’s …. All of it makes me try harder and keeps me coming back every day!  I have a lot more “firsts” to check off the list… !! One of the coolest things about CrossFit for me was when my husband Joe joined.  It was so fun to have something totally new to do together… and after 20 years together and in the midst of raising 2 teenagers…you don’t often find yourself cheering your spouse on, verbally, publicly, daily…. What a neat feeling to both receive and give these cheers from and to your spouse!!   Thanks Cascade Crossfit….. You have an amazing place here and I am SO happy our family is part of it!

The culture and people at Cascade CrossFit, in my opinion, make the experience so remarkable. I travel pretty consistently for work and have visited 30+ boxes around North America. I find that it is not the equipment, facility or the costs but the community that make the difference. The combination of Coaches and the members makes for an incredible experience. My work schedule varies which means I have had the benefit of attending a range of afternoon classes from 3:30 on during the week plus the weekend classes. Each class, no matter the time, is filled with really awesome and genuine people. There is something really cool and motivating about being around people in the gym who are there for all different reasons, working hard, and encouraging each other to do their best. You truly get what you put into your workouts and Cascade makes it really easy to give it all you have.  I’m not hard to find in the gym as I’m the guy with Whip marks on his legs working on double-unders, with hat head and yellow shoes…

The environment of any small business is shaped by the owners. Cascade Crossfit has attracted talented, humble, outgoing athletes that want a better life. The members at Cascade want others to succeed. That is why I think it is the most competitive gym in the Pacific Northwest as proven in the most recent Northwest Gorilla Games Championships! This is a special place to work out for many reasons! Most importantly, the environment attracts NICE people. It’s a big gym with lots of room to move around unlike most crossfit gyms that I have experienced. It’s clean!!!!! I love that! The gym has all of the equipment anyone would want in a crossfit gym as well! The other factor is the workouts. They vary enough to work your entire body and get you in the best shape of your life. This is as good as it gets and I am thankful!

My crossfit journey began almost 3 years ago when my husband and I were encouraged by our neighbors who had just started at Cascade Crossfit. They absolutely raved about it! I was unprepared for the intensity and strength required, but I was intrigued by the program and knew it was something special. My friends and husband have since moved on to other activities, but I persevered despite myself.

It’s difficult to express how unbelievably hard it was in the beginning. I struggled, both mentally and physically. I’m not known for my athleticism and was very self-conscious of my perceived lack of ability. I would get so nervous before a WOD that I would sometimes make it to the parking lot and be unable to overcome my nerves and come inside. I nearly quit more times than I can count! I’ve tried to consider what made me keep coming back. Undoubtedly, the fantastic coaching helped me stick with it, but mostly I’m just stubborn.

Earlier this year I started a new job which enabled me to devote more time to crossfit, among other things. What a difference it made in my strength and self-confidence! At almost 44 years old I am amazed at what I can do. In a million years I never believed I had the ability to perform a snatch or a clean. Every time I successfully jump on the box I cheer a little inside. I still have one of the longest times on the board, but I’ve come to grips with that and enjoy moving as fast (or slow) as I can through the WOD. It’s the only time of the day where I’m completely in the moment and stress-free. I’m so happy I have the opportunity to experience crossfit and it’s inspiring community.

As a 48 year old endurance runner I found myself continuously losing overall strength as I just stuck to what I was good at. Concerned I tried many of the traditional strength programs at our Gym with not much success. Frankly I did not enjoy just pushing iron around.

My son-in-law turned me on to this Crossfit concept. He did his homework researching many of the local gyms and found Cascade as one of the best in the area. I can see why, the group at Cascade were welcoming and continue to guide you to your goals.

Strength training is fun again.

As a husband and father of 3 young children, I knew I needed to get healthy. At age 30 I could barely chase my kids around without getting extremely short on breath. It had been about 12 years and 80 pounds since I felt healthy and in shape. I started Cascade CrossFit’s Fundamentals Class in January and nearly passed out after the first 5 minute workout. The next workout wasn’t any better. The trainers didn’t judge me, all they did was encourage and motivate me to keep working. They also made sure I was being safe and didn’t make me feel awkward about it. I learned later that they knew something that I didn’t at the moment… that I could accomplish my goals if I had the right environment and set my mind to it.

Like a broken record, you’ll hear the trainers say that you can’t outwork a bad diet. So on “Day 1” of my official membership I started the 30 Day Paleo Challenge. I knew I needed a lifestyle change so my diet had to change too. By mid-February I was making it through workouts and down 20 lbs. It was one of the toughest and best 30 days of my life. I still have a ton of improving to do, but this group of owners, coaches and members support and encourage each other toward success. I know that with hard work and the support of Cascade CrossFit I can improve my performance, feel healthier, and shed off another 50 pounds to reach my goal weight.

For anyone looking to better themselves physically and mentally, Cascade CrossFit is the place to be! You will learn things about yourself and be encouraged to push harder than you ever thought you could go. Thank you Cascade CrossFit! I am excited about the journey ahead…
