  • I have only been doing Crossfit for about 5 months now and I have discovered a newfound love for lifting and always wanting to better myself in every aspect of my fitness level. And of course, the coaches and the other athletes make working out a fun thing to do, instead of it feeling like a chore!

  • My journey though fitness has been just that...a journey. I've always had exercise as a part of my life but was never TrueType dedicated to it until about 5 years ago. I discovered distance running and it changed my life both physically and mentally. CrossFit has only enhanced this. The strength I have gained has helped my endurance and also showed me that I can do more! Friction CrossFit has an awesome community and coaches that have encouraged me to push myself. P.S. Endurance WODs are the best!

  • The staff's guidance is key to success at [Friction] CrossFit. I don't feel you get that in a regular gym. They are always willing to help you out and answer your questions.
