It’s difficult to describe exactly how Omega Crossfit has changed my life because it has changed it in so many ways. I grew up in an active family, and I have been active throughout my own life as well. Both my parents were college athletes, in my youth and high school years I played sports, and I played intramural sports in college. Throughout college, most of my athletic endeavours were endurance activities such as half marathons and triathlons. Occasionally I did some light weight training, but never anything heavy and certainly no Olympic lifting. So when I joined CrossFit it was a completely new experience for me.
I have been a member at Omega for a little over a year now, and in that time I have learned so much and made an enormous amount of progress, much of which I attribute to the tremendous coaching. One of the things I love about CrossFit is there is always something (lots of things!) to improve upon. You are constantly challenged not only physically, but mentally as well. The workouts are varied and you’re always working different muscle groups, which I feel makes the classes efficient and effective, which is important when you have a busy schedule.
My body has definitely changed for the better since starting at Omega. I have more muscle definition, I’m faster and stronger than I’ve ever been. Besides the challenging workouts, I adore the community aspect of Omega. I attend class at 5:30 am and that is a special group! I look forward to seeing them every day as they have become like a second family to me. I recently started attending the Strong(wo)man class and it’s a blast, too! It has helped me get even stronger and I have made some wonderful friendships in the process. I can’t wait to see what the future holds! I would recommend Omega to anyone and everyone!
I came to Omega two years ago with a lot of varied fitness experiences, but also a lot of nagging injuries. I had done marathons and triathlons and boot camps and personal training and even things like P90X. But I kept getting hurt, and I wasn’t making the progress I thought I should have been making. Omega has changed all of that. The trainers at Omega assessed my fitness needs on a holistic basis, addressing holes I didn’t even know I had – mobility, technique, strength imbalances, etc. And they did it and continue to do it in a way and with programming that makes it fun to come to the gym. Very quickly after starting at Omega, my injury problems disappeared, and I started to make real and noticeable progress. But even more than being the best gym with the best, most knowledgeable and most engaged trainers I have ever been around, what makes Omega special is the sense of community. It is a place filled with people (trainers and members) who care about each other and about this special place that they have created. I would absolutely recommend Omega to anyone, without hesitation.
