“My husband and I have tried every fitness or weight loss program out there, and we’ve never been able to stick with anything. We’re busy, we have young kids, and nothing ever really stuck. Everything was always either too complicated, too boring, or too time consuming. When an out-of-state friend of mine mentioned that CrossFit had “changed her life,” I promised I would look for a local gym. Stone Forge CrossFit was right down the road, so we decided to give it a try. My husband and I are both 50 – 75lbs overweight, and we went into this “cold.” My husband had been jogging three days a week, but I hadn’t done any kind of committed exercise in years. On the first day, I fell in love with the program. Was it hard? YES. Was it fun? YES. And five months later, it has never, ever been boring. But the best part of CrossFit (and Stone Forge especially) is how encouraging everyone is. Despite the fact that we were clearly out of shape, no one — NO ONE — at Stone Forge has ever made us feel like we couldn’t do something. In fact, when we want to try something new, everyone jumps in to help us learn how to do it. We’ve made so many good friends, and we’ve learned so much, and for the first time in our lives, we actually look forward to going to the gym every day. I’m now stronger than I’ve ever been in my life, and I feel better about myself than I have in years. I totally understand what my friend meant when she said CrossFit changed her life — it’s changed ours too.”
