What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is Constantly varied, functional movement, performed at high intensity.  The goal of GSR is to provide you with the knowledge, encouragement, support and motivation you need to achieve success.

Is CrossFit right for me?

CrossFit is scalable to everyone. The needs of an elite athlete and grandparent differ only in degree. The same methods that obtain optimal responses in an elite athlete will optimize the same responses in the moderately athletic, non-athletic, and elderly. You don’t have to be in shape to start. Just come in however you are, and we will take you to the next level.


I’ve always had trouble sticking with things unless they really held my interest.  I would frequently find myself saying that THIS would be the time I’d get in shape.  After a few weeks or months, I’d find myself back at square one.  GSR helped me find a supportive community that wants to see each other challenge themselves and live better lives.    I learned to love the community, hate the burpees, love watching personal bests go up, and workout times go down.  GSR helped me find a fun way to finally get myself in shape, and to meet some incredible inspiring people along the way.


I started at GSR a little over a year ago after a lifetime of strictly being a runner. After running 2 marathons and 3 half marathons, I had hit a plateau in my training and was looking for a way to get to the next level.

I knew right after the first session that this is exactly what I needed to add to my training regimen. Crossfit has increased my overall strength and has made me a much stronger runner. When I first started I couldn’t even lift the bar but after attending class twice a week,for only a few weeks, I was stronger head to toe. I was able to push my body to do things I never thought possible.

After only 4 weeks of training at GSR I ran the Vestal 20km race, one of the most challenging races in our community, and I shaved 5 minutes off my time from the previous year! I spent the rest of the summer setting personal records at each race I ran.

GSR Crossfit has helped me increase my strength and endurance both physically and mentally. I am totally hooked! It was exactly what I needed to give me that extra push towards reaching my goals.


GSR Crossfit has made me a much more confident person and much stronger than I ever thought I could be. The coaches and community here push you to work your hardest and I feel like I make improvements each week. Since working out here almost every day for a year, I could never go back to training in a regular gym.


I have biked 4,000 miles in a years time, I have run 10 miles per week, I have done kickboxing, I’ve done P90X but nothing compares to CrossFit!

It’s one hour of fitness available 7 days a week.  CrossFit is competitive and yet it’s all about me beating me.  It’s all about health.  The trainers are great and they care.  I’ve never been hurt with the knowledge that GSR CrossFit trainers have.  I’ve been sore but it’s a great feeling!  The trainers allow me space to learn and grow.  I am currently down 2 sizes, yet I weigh the same as before I started.  I’m lean, yet I eat like a horse!
I would do anything for my CrossFit family and the trainers.  Try it; you won’t be sorry.
