Amy You may see the changes to the outside of my body, but by God's grace, the real change is on the inside. For the first time in my life I feel mentally strong. Strong enough to confront my past and no longer let it define me. Friends and family helped heal my heart, but only I could heal my soul. I workout 4-6 times a week and pick up a barbell and do a WOD. I won't give up. That barbell has gradually gotten heavier and my modifications have gotten smaller. I used to see a tough WOD and want to quit but now if the WOD doesn't seem as tough I know its because I'm getting stronger. Leaving it all on the floor is exhausting, but theres always a voice pumping me up to keep going, so I do. Its a daily victory, not quitting. Im happy I've changed my body on the outside but the miracle is that I SAVED MY SOUL.
Lauren I had absolutely no idea what to expect. The coaches are well trained, knowledgeable and work with any level person, new or experienced. Almost a year later it's more than just a gym to me, it's great friends and an extended family! I am better and STRONGER because of CrossFit Rua!
Shelley I highly recommend CrossFit Rua! The coaches and owner are amazing! During this quarantine they have offered daily Zoom training sessions to keep us supported and healthy. The group members act as family and are always there to cheer each other on. I will tell you that I have had back surgery and need to be extremely careful and the coaches have been respectful and helpful of my abilities (or lack thereof). No matter what your level is, they are able to accommodate all of us. I have made so much progress in the 6 months that I have been here. If I can do it, Im sure you could too.
Marla By far the best "True" CrossFit gym around! Coaching is spot on and some of the best, driven and supportive athletes I've ever met! Come over and give them a try because I know for a fact you will be hooked and on an amazing journey of fitness! Take that first step and try out a class no matter what your level of fitness is!
Jaci I can not say enough good things about CFR! It's always a little nerve wrecking starting at a new gym/box and let me just tell your they make you fit in right away. All of the coaches are so welcoming along with each member. Everyone is very encouraging and always there to cheer you on during the WOD's. Dawn runs a great box and has a heart of gold! If you are looking to try CrossFit out, come see Dawn and all the great coaches at CrossFit Rua.
Emily I have been dedicated to CrossFit Rua from the very beginning. I have been doing CrossFit for 3.5 years now and have seen so much improvement. Dawn is a truly amazing owner, coach and friend! CFR is truly more than a gym to me. I am so happy I get to be part of this community because we are all family here.
Abby From the first day I stepped foot in CrossFit Rua, I felt extremely supported and a part of the family environment that makes this such a special place! All of the instructors are patient and excellent at working with beginners through veterans. The members are awesome and push each other through workouts. I'd highly recommend CrossFit Rua for anyone wanting to feel like a part of a CrossFit family and get in some great workouts too!
"Nothing like walking in and feeling at home. No matter what your skill or fitness level is, you are never left behind. You are encouraged, pushed out of your comfort zone and learn you are able and capable. Now get up, get in and see it for yourself. Love this place." "CrossFit has not only given me a toned body, but energy I never had prior, a sense of belonging, dramatic self esteem increase, and a place to destress and not be judged."
