stars“TRAINING AT EMPIRE STATE CROSSFIT HAS REALLY HELPED SHAPE ME AS AN ATHLETE IN A LOT OF WAYS. I’VE BEEN A COMPETITIVE ROWER FOR 15 YEARS, SO I WAS ALREADY AN ATHLETE COMING INTO ESCF, BUT I HAVE GAINED SO MUCH THROUGH THE TRAINING, COACHING, AND COMMUNITY HERE.

FIRST OF ALL, I AM STRONGER NOW AND IN BETTER SHAPE OVERALL THAN I HAVE EVER BEEN. SECONDLY, I’VE WORKED WITH A NUMBER OF COACHES IN MY ATHLETIC CAREER, AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY THE COACHES AT ESCF ARE SECOND TO NONE WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING THE BEST OUT OF THEIR ATHLETES. NOT ONLY ARE THEY EXCEEDINGLY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND CAPABLE, BUT THEY GENUINELY WANT TO SEE YOU SUCCEED AND IT’S INCREDIBLY MOTIVATING TO WORK WITH COACHES LIKE THAT.

FINALLY, AS SOMEONE WHO’S USED TO BEING PART OF A TEAM, I’VE REALLY LOVED FINDING A SECOND TEAM AT EMPIRE. IN ADDITION TO THE SUPPORT YOU GET FROM THE COACHES, YOU GET MOTIVATION/SUPPORT/CHEERING/ADVICE/ CAMARADERIE FROM THE OTHER MEMBERS, AND IT MAKES YOU PUSH THAT MUCH HARDER.

TO SUM UP, I LITERALLY CAN’T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT EMPIRE STATE CROSSFIT; TRAINING HERE HAS MADE ME A BETTER ATHLETE AND I’VE LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT.”
