What makes CrossFit Garden City so special?
1. The Coaching Staff – We have world Class Coaching. Our gym sets very high standards and ensures that all members are given the right amount of attention. Every coach works with you to ensure a personal connection with focus and attention on your health and safety. I have become a stronger, and better athlete because of the coaching staff at CFGC!
2. A Great Facility – the gym is amazing! Not only do we have world class coaching but we have the privilege of working out in a state of the art fully equipped awesome facility. A facility that I call home 5 days a week.
3. The Community – from the second I walked through the door 2 years ago, I was made to feel at home. I have made wonderful friends that I now consider my second family. CFGC supports all Athletes in competitions, not only providing t-shirts and gift bags, the gym provides moral support and love. When I am away for extended periods, I cannot wait to get back to my friends and family at CFGC. The goal of our community is to support each other in being the best we can be.
I am forever grateful that I walked through the door 2 years ago ! It has been a life changing experience, I know that with time and attention I will continue to evolve as an athlete. This evolution is a direct result of the passion and attention to detail that CFGC has for every member of the gym.

Three years ago I stepped in the door at CFGC and have been hooked ever since. Being a woman, body image is something I've always kinda struggled with, coupled with being overweight. This gym has given me such a gift; I've discovered this inner athleticism that I never knew was inside of me, and as a result, I now love and appreciate my body for how strong it is, and what it can do. My first workout was basic, but it rocked my world. Back then I never thought I would be doing pull-ups and Olympic weightlifting, but here I am today, doing what I once considered impossible. I have become faster and stronger. I am in the best physical and mental shape I have ever been in. I went from obese to athlete, and for the first time in my 25 years, I have finally stuck with a workout regimen. I now live a lifestyle which prioritizes my health. Training at CFGC has encouraged me to be disciplined about the quality of my food I eat, my sleep, and even having healthy relationships. I promise you that the strength you acquire in the gym will spill over into every aspect of your outside life. I'm bolder, mentally tougher, I focus on things I can control, and strive to let go of the things I can't. My entire quality of life and my happiness has improved so much since becoming a part of this amazing community.
But there is another side to this place. CFGC is so much more than a gym. It's people to go hiking with on the weekends, it's a whole new group of friends to share kick-ass new experiences with, it's a place I go to after stressful day at work to sweat, laugh, and have a freaking blast. It's my second home. It's great people who became my second family.
The coaches are brilliant at their craft, knowledgeable and encouraging. They are truly invested in helping the members succeed. The facility is absolutely beautiful. The equipment is new, the showers are clean, and most importantly, it is HUGE. You don't need to worry about getting slapped in the face with a kettlebell. You absolutely do NOT have to be an elite athlete to go here. There is lots of attention and help for those who need it, without judgement or ridicule like I have seen at some other gyms. I train next to world class athletes, High School kids, grandparents, and everyone in between. Everyone encourages and wants the best for each other here.
If you don't do CrossFit, this is a great place to begin your journey. Make yourself a promise that you will show up and do what the coaches ask you to do. If you simply keep your end of that bargain, things will occur in your life that you never thought were possible!

Joining CrossFit Garden City has been the smartest thing I have done since moving to the area last year. Not only do the coaches provide first class training in a first class facility, every individual is treated as family from day one. It is this personalized attention combined with a varied and challenging program that makes CrossFit Garden City unique. I live a healthier and fitter lifestyle now than I have ever done before and I am fortunate to be able to count the coaches and many of the members as my friends. I can't recommend CFGC highly enough - and I look forward to meeting you at a future class!

CrossFit Garden City has grown to be a part of my life in a way I never thought possible. Upon getting my ass whooped from a Tabata Air Squat, Push Up, Sit Up and Pull Up, I knew that this was the challenge I was looking for in my gym/fitness/work out "career". What I didn't know was that I would grow so close to people I otherwise would have never known and talked to. CFGC has given me more than a great crew to workout with, but people I can rely on if I ever needed help with anything outside the gym.
Aside from the camaraderie and community, the coaching that I fell into is second to none and I wouldn't want it any other way. From Dennis and Jenn, knowing anything and everything about fitness and working out, to the newer coaches, we receive such a high level of coaching that brings both experience and knowledge from many different perspectives, and it shows every where I go. They are always willing to help and answer any question you come to them with. I love knowing that every time I walk into the gym there's going to be a new challenge and a learning experience. I'm not sure that people can say that about every other gym out there. CFGC has become a home away from home, somewhere that I know I can always go to and feel comfortable and welcomed. This has no doubt been a life changing experience for me and I intend on continuing this experience well into the future. Thanks CFGC!

I was never a fan of lifting. Once I graduated from college I became a heavy Zumba, bench press, treadmill, and ab girl. Being a former collegiate basketball player, I have always been competitive. I always rode past the CFGC box on my way to work but never thought twice to stop in. A coworker of mine brought up the idea of CrossFit to me. He told me that I would be great and I should give it a try...I wasn't interested. Each time I dropped by his job he brought it up and each time, I had an excuse. It wasn't until the last time he said "LaSheena I will pay for your first month, if you don't like it, you don't have to come back." Surely, a year and a half later, I am still here. I am in better shape now than I was as a student-athlete. CrossFit puts me in my element of competing and being an athlete again. From the expertise of the coaches, to the warm and friendly hellos from our encouraging members, this is my home away from home. I have made a few friends and some great workout partners! Thank you CFGC for changing my life and for being my happy place!

I started CrossFit about a year and a half ago, but became consistent about a year ago at CFGC. I was anxious about moving to CFGC from another box for various reasons. Will I embarrass myself? Who can I ask my million questions to? How will I know the right weight to use? I was terrified! My husband, who was already a member at CFGC said, "Oh stop, everyone is really friendly and the coaches are great." A year later I can honestly say he was right! I felt comfortable from the moment I walked in to the 6pm class and Coach Mario introduced himself. To my surprise he put me right in front of the class to watch my form and technique. He discreetly gave me pointers the whole way through. Smiling faces welcomed me and fist bumps for a good job were passed around to all. I have made so many new friends and workout partners. EVERY coach is knowledgable and motivating. A year later and of course a year older I am in the best shape of my life thanks to the coaches and members at CFGC. In the past I worked out to be skinnier, but now I workout to be stronger. I joke to all of my friends that I have peaked at age 38 thanks to CrossFit, but mainly thanks to the CrossFit Garden City community.

CrossFit Garden City is home. Not just to me, but to everyone. It is somewhere where anyone can come in and completely enhance their day, whether it's to make a good day the best day, or an unbearable day, better. CrossFit Garden City has a certain aura to it that when athletes come in they feel happy, they feel welcome, they feel like they belong somewhere. And that somewhere is here, where your friends and coaches share a common goal: to make life better. And that's what CrossFit does, it makes life better. With the help of our second-to-none coaching staff, and our CFGC family, anything is possible. The words "can't" and "won't" will be pushed aside by"will" and "can". There's no place else in the entire world that will make you feel as powerful as you'll feel when you're at CFGC. And THAT, is what home is supposed to feel like.

CrossFit is a promise. A promise of a nurturing community that will help you tap into much more of your human potential. A promise of a welcoming community that will make you feel right at home. A promise of excellent and expert leadership from coaches who've walked the walk. CrossFit Garden City is a promise fulfilled.

I have been a member at CrossFit Garden City for over a year. Coming from a more traditional gym setting I wasn't sure what to expect. I told myself I would try CrossFit for a few months and then decide if it was worth the money. Three weeks into the Foundations program at CrossFit Garden City and my mind was already made up; I had found a place that made training new and exciting again.
The coaching staff is phenomenal from top to bottom and WILL help you reach your goals. The diverse community is very tight knit and is always looking to welcome new members. You will undoubtedly find yourself making many many new friends. There is truly something for everyone at CrossFit Garden City regardless of your current fitness level. Lastly, the facility is incredible! Tons of space and amenities for members to enjoy at their convenience. I highly suggest checking this place out. You won't be disappointed!

It goes without saying all the amazing things CFGC has done for me. I lost 42 lbs in my first year of doing CrossFit, and have never worked harder or had more fun in the gym before. Follow the program and you'll reach your goals and then some.
