I do CrossFit because I see it making a difference for me both physically, and mentally. I am in the best shape that I have been in since my 20s, and I think that I am actually stronger than I've ever been. Mentally, after a trying day at work, heading to CrossFit relieves much of the stress and tension of the day.
Take that first step and walk thru the door, you will find an amazing atmosphere, coaches who care, and members who will encourage you every step of the way. There is NO judgment at 5280, only a group of people that will cheer you on, no matter where you start!
I have met so many wonderful people at 5280 that I wouldn't otherwise cross paths with and I'm so happy for that. 5280 has also given me a new found love of working out that allows me to feel strong and confident on a daily basis.
5280 CrossFit has made my life exponentially better, and I am so happy that I walked through those doors and met the owner Jason; he is world class athlete who inspires those around him. I am so grateful that I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried something new... just do it!
We work on form every single day and it's so easy to follow along and modify where necessary. Just stick with it! You'll never experience poor coaching, over-crowded classes, or negatives egos. 5280 CrossFit is a special place and is super welcoming to everyone!
I was pleasantly surprised to find that this gym is very serious about technique and doing movements the right way in order to prevent injury. I was also pleased with how nice everyone is! It really feels like a little family.
The coaches truly love what they do and it shows in their passion for helping each member be better than yesterday. I'm yet to meet a member that isn't friendly, willing to chat and be there with everybody else until the last rep. All in all, it's just a great group of people that I would trust with my pets.
I remember looking at one WOD before going in and just had to laugh. Of the three movements that were part of the workout, I couldn't do any of them. But, I showed up. The coaches made sure to go through every way to scale the workout before we got into it, and it was a non-issue.
