I’ve been with CFE for 7 months at this point and couldn’t have imagined getting the results I’ve achieved so far. I walked in the first few days thinking there would be no way I could do some of the workouts I saw. But the coaches are amazing at teaching you the movements, scaling the workouts to where you can succeed, and still pushing you to make progress. The coaches are always accessible to answer any questions and the other members there are always nice and encouraging. I’m motivated to be there as often as possible not only to continue to push myself, but because I’ve made some great friendships there and want to encourage them to succeed to new heights as well.
I love being a member of the CrossFit Elmhurst community. I began at age 61 with no previous strength training experience and quickly became hooked. Now, four years later, I am much stronger and more fit than I ever thought possible. Workouts are skillfully programmed by Coach/Owners Miguel and Vince to ensure that all levels of athletic ability are considered. In addition, they routinely add new equipment and training programs for members as well as fun competitions and social events for both members and their families/friends.
Joining CrossFit Elmhurst was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I came from a typical chain-type gym and was starting to get incredibly bored with my workouts to a point where I stopped going to the gym. I had been wanting to try CrossFit for a while, so one day I decided to fill the form out online, and I am so glad I did.
The experience I have had so far has been incredible. I can tell in the two months since I started that I am stronger, faster, and I have more confidence in myself and my athletic ability than I have ever had. From time to time I struggle with something in the workout, and it is so refreshing to have everyone there cheering for you to succeed and giving you pointers to help make things easier. I am now at a point where I can’t wait to go work out and see what else I can do that I never thought I could.
