Living in Boulder, CO there seems to be a gym on every corner in this city. And that’s awesome! If you’re looking for a new gym you have plenty of options. However, our advice is to ask yourself a couple of questions before starting to pay a membership fee at any place.
What type of fitness are you looking for? Is it group classes or a place to go in at 2 am and do your own thing? Is it CrossFit, interval training, yoga, weightlifting, climbing? The list goes on and on. You should first narrow your search down to see what type of fitness routine works best with your body and your goals. Which one of these makes you happier both physically and mentally? Start there and then follow these next steps.
Go to at least 2 of those same types of fitness gyms and try them out! Meet the other members, the coaches, and the owner. You should get a pretty good feel of the culture of the gym after a few classes there. Every single gym is different in its own unique way. Whether it’s a corporate franchise like 24-hour Fitness or an independently own and operated CrossFit affiliate, we are all different when it comes to the look, feel, and overall goals.
Boulder CrossFit’s goal is to, “get fit, have fun and make friends”. It’s that simple. Our training methodology is constantly varied, functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. We make it fun by not making it super competitive or taking ourselves so seriously all the time. We are NOT training members for high-level competitive CrossFit like other gyms in town. At the end of the day, we’re not just trying to make you fit and hit your fitness goals but we’re connecting you all outside of the gym to create long-lasting relationships that go beyond PRs. Whether it’s social get-togethers that lead to new potential jobs or whether it’s just grabbing a quick drink to relax and talk about life, our gym is here for you. That’s Boulder CrossFit in a nutshell.
There is a gym for everyone. Go out there and find your click. You won’t regret it once you do!
