Whoaaaaaaa what is this CrossFit Gimmick, is that what you’re thinking? I know I was. I didn’t want to be HUGE! The workouts look insane? and what about all these negative stories? Well, CrossFit Select changed my mind from the second I walked through the doors to A BIG POSITIVE, SUPPORTIVE AND ENCOURAGING FAMILY!
I was always athletic as a kid and into my early 20’s until I encountered a few unfortunate events of life that left me with floating cartilage in both shoulders, a tilted pelvis and an awkward yet minor back problem. I lost all motivation in my 20’s and my activity came to a screeching halt! My weight loss/gain has been all of the place for the past 6 years. I tried ever diet/circuit training/ commercial gym and even an expensive personal trainer/nutrionist, nothing worked!. It always came back. I lost 40 pounds due to a bum thyroid (metabolism) running on overdrive WOOHOO. I had my Thyroid removed and BAM back to 198lbs in 3 months..
I walked through the doors at CrossFit Select in March 2014 at 188lbs. I left my first WOD (work out of the day) dripping in sweat and grinning from ear to ear! I DID IT. With the help of Owner Tommy Snarr and the most amazing coaching staff within a few weeks they had made me realize that biggest obstacle to building and maintaining a healthy lifestyle was me. So I made a promise that I would see my CROSSFIT family and eat healthy for 30 days. It was during the pain, sweat and tears of WOD after WOD for 30 days (4-5 days a week) that I knew I was “ready for change”
CROSSFIT SELECT has given me my health back, NO MORE Physical Therapists. Crossfit itself, optimizes fitness by a constantly varied functional movement, performed at relatively high intensity and CROSSFIT SELECT is CROSSFIT at its finest.

Coach Lori, will kick you in the ass and you will be laughing while sweating through a WOD, that you will both love and dread. Coach Steve = Mr Stretch, best stretching routines ever!. Coach Chris, always seems to have the workout/stretch/answer you need!

A family that will encourage you and help you grow physically, mentally and emotionally, because everything we do, we do it TOGETHER!
