I have been a member of CrossFit Somers for over 2 years now. As someone who got back into fitness about 5 years ago, CrossFit has been paramount to my health and well-being. I’ve tried working out at commercial gyms, etc. but nothing comes close to what I have been able to accomplish at CrossFit Somers. The atmosphere at the box is what separates it from anything I have ever experienced. From the moment you walk in you are made to feel comfortable, from both the coaches and the members. Since joining, I have made countless new friendships.
From day one you are encouraged and coached in a manner to be successful. There are no limits to what you can accomplish so long as you are willing to put the time and effort in. As someone approaching 50, I am lifting more weights and doing exercises that I never thought I would be able to. I am in the best shape of my life and owe it to CrossFit Somers and the team that Steve has put in place. The variety of the program always keeps it interesting. I do CrossFit between 4-6 times per week in the morning, depending on my work schedule. I won’t go anywhere else.
If you are considering CrossFit, I would encourage you to give it a try. CrossFit Somers has changed my life in so many positive ways; I am so happy I took the chance and walked in a few years back.
I am quickly approaching 50 and have literally tried every single exercise program out there I have done aerobics, Zumba, spin,Pilates, the traditional gym, private trainer etc. etc. nothing stuck. I am proud to say this is my fourth year at CrossFit and not only are the workouts inspiring and motivating but more importantly the people right alongside you are cheering you on, motivating you, inspiring you, and making you work harder every day!! It’s a culture not a cult!
The coaches at Somers Cross Fit are tremendous assets to anyone who is looking to get into shape and do it with consistency. Joining a fitness club isn’t difficult, there seems to be as many of them as there are coffee shops, but finding one that cares, and puts effort into making sure you succeed, that’s one of a kind. I highly recommend Steve and the guys at Somers Cross Fit for anyone looking to change their life with fitness.
After years of going to gyms and not using them enough, I realized that what worked for me was to take a class and be coached in a small group setting. That’s what Cross Fit Somers offered. I also wanted something that would challenge me to do a rigorous workout and at the same time support a differentiated approach when needed—I am 54 after all.
There were three cross fit boxes in my area. One seemed to want to screen me by having me come in so they could assess my fitness and charge me for personal training until they deemed me fit enough to join their classes. That didn’t come across in a welcoming way. Another said I could give it a try, but had only classes that catered to business hours for corporate commuters and folks who happen to be able to work out at noon. Works for many, not for me. As a teacher, my hours are not flexible, and frequently there aren’t high intensity classes before 6pm.
I came across somers cross fit. They were welcoming, invited me in and gave me realistic ways to build my fitness skills and strength. They had classes sprinkled across the day from 5 am to 730pm.
I have grown so much since joining Cross Fit Somers. Nothing gets me tired anymore. I have a lots of energy. Though I’ve always been healthy, my blood pressure is better today than it was 20 years ago. I am continually astounded by the way I am able to do their WODs, at my pace. I participated in the annual cf games WODs for the past two years. It is truly astounding what you can accomplish if you participate.
It’s a great place if you want to push yourself to higher levels of fitness at your own pace. Everyone, coaches and clients, are warm and supportive. It’s a great community. I highly recommend for anyone, of any fitness level or age to try Cross Fit Somers.
