Joining Cantina CrossFit changed my life forever. I am in the best shape I have ever been in. I learned how to lift, and met a great group of instructors. Cantina helped me realize that I am capable of so much more than I ever thought I was. It changes my threshold in and out of the gym consistently. I am a single mom and they welcomed my son and I into their gym immediately. He is just as excited as I am to go every week. I am fortunate to have this gym and be a part of its success. CrossFit is for everyone and this is the place to begin your journey! I hope to begin a new journey and turn my CrossFit passion into something more in my life. Thank you to the Cantina CrossFit staff for welcoming Gavin and me into your gym each week.
Cantina CrossFit is the best thing to happen to this almost 70-year-old body! I joined Cantina several years ago, at the invitation of my daughter, grandson, and my wife. We had a pretty large family group going there. I have become stronger than I ever thought possible at my age, with concurrent increases in endurance. What I love about CrossFit in general and Cantina in particular, is that the coaching staff helps me to scale each workout (we call them “WODs”) based on my current capabilities. Yes, my biological family brought me to Cantina, but the Cantina family keeps me coming back!
Case in point: I consulted with a professional, competitive weight lifting friend about what I should aim for as a deadlift max at my age. She indicated that 250 pounds is considered pretty darn good. I set that as my goal and in less than a year, I deadlifted 265! But in true Cantina fashion, Coach Annie had me work up to that number with multiple reps of ever-increasing weight. My next goal is 300 pounds, multiple reps, before my 70th birthday.
If you are young or old, you should definitely check out CrossFit, specifically the good folks at CANTINA. You’ll be glad you did, I promise!
Truly a family atmosphere with great humble members. Amazing coaches that are so knowledgeable and really care about their athletes. Been here at Cantina for about 8 months and my wife and I love it!
