Why do you love CrossFit?

Because it makes me feel empowered, and do things I never thought I would/could do before! Plus, the community is phenomenal. 

 What makes Choice City so special?

What’s NOT special about CCCF?! Choice City is the first and only place I have been a CrossFit member at. The welcoming environment, the top-notch coaching, the opportunities to be a better version of myself each and every day, the fact that a coach, a friend, or fellow athlete will high five you and tell you “Good Job’ even when you feel terrible, the friends I have made that have turned into my family members, we have Buddy the gym dog. Stop me anytime….
