Bret Lurz knows firsthand how intimidating it can be to walk into a CrossFit gym as a newbie, and he's competed as an athlete at the collegiate and Junior Olympic level. He can still recount his first encounter with CrossFit, when a challenging workout left him panting and sore. However, within six months, he was teaching CrossFit as a certified coach. Now years later, he has opened his own gym, CrossFit Everlasting. With the memory of his early CrossFit experience fueling him, Bret and his team ensure that everyone who steps inside feels welcome and at ease.
That doesn't mean the coaches will go easy on you, though. They design workouts of the day (WODs) to push your body to the brink, creating change when other fitness routines fall flat. If you're a first-timer, schedule a free intro to CrossFit that includes an overview of the workout techniques and a tour of the facility. Then join a CrossFit class or come to the open gym to start sweating. Back To Blog
