Testimonials

 
ryan testimony_edited_edited.jpg

"In 2019 I found Colonial CrossFit. I am a firm believer that the support and accountability from this community has further strengthened my resolve to push myself to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  To date I am 130 pounds lighter and a much healthier 23 percent body fat with plans to continue to see how I can transform and promote a healthy lifestyle.  It is this unique experience that gives me the perspective to help those athletes with body image/body capability concerns. My fitness journey is very relatable to many potential athletes that have concerns with how or where to get started. If you want a non-judgmental, supportive community of relatable athletes to begin or grow in your fitness journey, come get started at Colonial CrossFit."
