What others are saying…
I am 60+ recently retired and looking to get and stay fit. When first confronted with CrossFit, I was concerned it was for athletes much younger than myself, that it would be too intense for me, and that I would not be able to keep up. I was hesitant to try it but am very glad I did. My fears were unfounded. The great thing about CrossFit is that each exercise is scaled to the ability and strength of the individual. This allowed me and persons of all ages to participate in CrossFit. Scaling means that each exercise or activity can be done a number of ways such that independent of strength or ability every person can participate. Another advantage to me of CrossFit is the personalized training. As I have never participated in organized strength training and only used machines at gyms in the past I really did not know how to perform strength exercises. The one-on-one CrossFit instruction took me step-by-step through how to execute each strength exercise and gave me the knowledge and confidence to perform. Although many of the athletes are younger than me the CrossFit community is great in accepting persons of all ages. Since starting CrossFit I am in better shape than I have been in years. My recommendation is to not be intimidated by CrossFit either due to age or your current shape, give CrossFit a try, I am confident you will find it one of the best exercise regimes and communities you have ever participated in.
I am a 32 year old ex-athlete that has struggled with going to the gym and staying in shape over the last few years. Although not obese, I saw my weight creep up and muscle tone decrease little by little. I tried going to regular gyms, but could never stay committed. I always felt that when I went to the gym it was inefficient and a waste of my time. Matt is my brother and had kept trying to convince me to try CrossFit. When I moved to LA I wanted to get healthier and meet people, so I finally decided to take his advice and I joined Paradiso CrossFit in Venice. It was the best decision I could have made for my fitness and health. Now I LOVE CrossFit (seriously). Not only have I gotten MUCH stronger, but I have also lost 15 pounds and am at a weight I haven’t been since I was playing soccer in high school — in about 6 months! I am also the most cut I have ever been.
I look forward to coming each day because the efficiency of the workouts always makes me feel that it is worth my time and highly effective, and I have clearly seen the results to support that. In addition, the challenge of the gymnastic and olympic lifting elements has kept me mentally interested as well. CrossFit is a sport in itself, and it is a good way for athletes and ex athletes alike to resume that competitive feeling. I have also adopted the full health mentality and am now eating much healthier as a result of joining the CrossFit community.
If you are like me — just starting to get out of shape and don’t have time for the gym — CrossFit is the program for you. You are in and out in a hour. Yes, you will feel crushed every time you go — but that feeling means you are working hard and the results will inevitably follow.
I had a goal to get fit by the age of 40 … Well I tried and I joined this local YMCA and worked out here and there but not much changed. 2014 was approaching and I thought this will be the year. I was approaching 41 and not getting any younger. I am 6’3″ and I was a good 245lbs. I was just an average guy, I never considered myself overweight but figured I could lose some weight. So as 2014 began I saw a Switch CrossFit free class post on Facebook and thought I’d give it a try. I never really had success at any gym so I was skeptical. I attended the free intro class and I was happy – thought this might work for me. I also at same time decided to stop drinking soda cold turkey (I was a 2 liter per day coke addict). I also decided to start eating healthier. It wasn’t easy and not easy on my family as I cook most of the meals.
I finally started feeling good about my body … I would be shirtless a lot and feel good about it. All of my clothes didn’t fit and I couldn’t believe it. Switch CrossFit became a family to me, everyone is super nice and the trainers are great and always available. I met some great people and the support everyone provides is awesome.
I am blessed with 2 great kids and a supportive wife, but CrossFit especially Switch CrossFit has given me purpose .. I like me now…I look in the mirror and I can smile… I definitely need to improve a lot more of my life but glad I gave CrossFit a try. Thank you Switch CrossFit for everything you have done for me. I also want to give shout out to Liz, she is the main trainer I have when I attend and she is great. I am a pretty shy but I have managed to bust out some dance moves during the WOD’s and that is huge for me.
Thanks Matt and Switch CrossFit for everything. You provided the open door and I am proud of myself that I finally accomplished something for myself. If you think CrossFit might not be for you then think again … men and women of all ages and shapes and sizes. In closing-Switch CrossFit has open doors and no judgements .. All our welcomed and appreciated!!
