CrossFit makes every day game day. We feel it in our sweaty palms in anticipation of the WOD. I love coming to CrossFit Los Alamos to run classes - to see everyone's smile and sweat on the floor, chalked up hands, and awesome physiques. And I love to see the changes in people - the ability to move better, added strenth, and a more complete lifestyle. A big thanks to all our athletes and coaches who make this place what it is!

CrossFit has truly been life changing for me.  There’s something very empowering about pushing past your comfort zone.  For those of us that love CrossFit, it’s one of the reasons we keep coming back for more.  CrossFit not only helps me physically, but there’s also a mental well-being that comes from doing CrossFit at a box with other amazing athletes that share your passion.  I love being a part of this awesome community at CrossFit Los Alamos.  We are all on this journey together, helping each other get stronger and helping to improve the quality of our lives.
