"I started at ECCF in July 2014 and walked in unable to do a single push-up or pull-up. I had no clue how to properly deadlift, clean, or squat. I felt completely intimidated by the weightroom at my gym and started out just wanting to learn the basics and get back to running. While after 3 years I know how to safely lift and finally have some upper body strength for the first time in my life, I'm not done here yet and can't imagine going back to working out alone. The coaches, balanced programming, and fun energetic atmosphere keep me coming in five days a week. The community that has been built at ECCF is incredible - happy hours, family picnics, and in-house competitions. You get the chance to workout with people who truly want to see you succeed and are just as excited about your achievements!"
"Paul and I are so glad to be part of ECCF. It continues to make us better, physically and mentally and to have developed such strong bonds with you and Seth. You both are inspirations for us in so many ways and we appreciate all you do for us! Looking forward to what 2014 brings and to sharing more great times!"
"I just wanted to thank you guys for your hospitality. Your gym is special. I am really happy I am a part of it to the degree I am."
"I am so thankful to be a member of Emerald City CrossFit. I have struggled with my weight my entire life, and have tried different things throughout the years, but none have been as effective and sustaining as the combination of Crossfit and the Paleo diet.
I feel really good about the changes I am seeing only since July, and it feels like I have finally found the right lifestyle change as opposed to a temporary fix. I have never felt more in control of my own health and weight. I played high school sports and have missed the sense of team, and guidance from a coach.
I love CrossFit because it provides me that same sense of camaraderie and feedback and is nothing like going to a traditional gym, which I end up just wasting my money on as I lose motivation. Thank you for running such a positive and fun place to sweat toward my goals!"
"It's been a great year at ECCF and I can't wait to see what 2014 brings. You guys have done a fantastic job with the gym, it's really pretty awesome."
"Pretty awesome to see all those PR's on the board tonight. Its outstanding! Seth and Melinda clearly know what they're doing! Really happy to be part of this box!"
