I’ve been working out at this gym for almost a year now. I started last January in their bootcamp. It was 3 days a week for 6 weeks. I was nervous when I started, never doing CrossFit before. I expected it to be too hard and to have to deal with the typical stereotypes.
A year later, and I am feeling better, have more confidence, and am actually setting and achieving goals that I was unable to obtain in other gyms and workouts.
The guidance provided by a variety of trainers is fantastic! I feel like I am part of a team with others who want me to succeed. I get personal training tips and amazing workouts where I sweat more in 30 minutes than I ever did in 1 1/2 hours in other places.
In addition, I get nutritional counseling, new and innovative ways to challenge myself and work with others, and even attend Members’ Night Out where we eat and have fun together.
This “community” of people are no drama, genuine, and welcoming to all who come. Members range from amazing in-shape competitors to those like me who just want to lose fat and be functionally fit.
Give it a try. I look forward to welcoming others into our community.
I went here for about two years before a life event forced me to move to another part of town. When I started, I was 250 lbs. and had a 38 waistline. When I left for 3 months, I was around 205 lbs., a 34-inch waist, and leaner than I’ve ever known. Between those two years and the time there, I discovered more about myself and what I’m capable of.
The community there is just that, a community. A group of people who legitimately care about you and your progress. Whenever you make a milestone, they’re right there, celebrating with you. Also expect that community to push you because they know you’re so much better than you think. The coaches know what they’re talking about, well trained and versed in their craft, and keeping up to speed on the newest fitness news. Words alone cannot describe CFFL. It’s just one of those things you have to experience yourself.
My best friend is an avid CrossFitter, and she’s convinced me a few times to join her. The environment is great, the people that work there and all of the members welcomed me like their own. After one workout, I was hooked on this place, and I highly recommend this location for anyone looking for a CrossFit gym!
Before coming here, I tried another location in Sacramento, where I was living, and wasn’t treated like they do here! When I attended CrossFit Folsom Lake, they made sure my form was correct and modified anything that I needed since I was new to heavy weightlifting. If you’re looking for results, a good place to go and unwind, and awesome people to do it with, choose this one! I am actually going to be on Christmas break and am looking to do a temporary membership while I’m in town! Can’t wait to get my butt kicked!
