Zach’s Story

What got me into the barbell club was my dad (Patrick) and brother Mason were doing weightlifting and my dad told me that there was a kids group I could go in and I was like, sure I'll try it. At the time I was only playing soccer and I wanted to do other stuff so...

Elizabeth’s Story

CrossFit has been in my family for many years, primarily because of my older brother, Stuart. Not only is he a CrossFit coach in VT, but he influenced my son, Ben to become a coach in Boise, ID as well. Stuart’s daughter, Katie, has her own box in Lutterworth,...

Rachel’s Story

Rachel Davis I had been living abroad for 6 months in Kenya and it was hard to workout where I lived. I once got chased by a wild dog while out on a run, so working out was really difficult to say the least! I've always been a really active person so when I returned,...

Nicole’s Story

Nicole Gervace My friend Kerri Schomer had been attending CutThroat CrossFit for several months when we ran into each other at CorePower Yoga. She told me that as a CPY member I can go to CTCF 4X a month and she thought I’d love it. She was right! I emailed Brian and...

Amy’s Story

Amy Moore A few people had encouraged me to try CrossFit but I was pretty convinced I was not in good enough shape to do it. I didn’t understand the scalability of the workouts at CrossFit and I had no idea about barbells or any type of gymnastics movements....

Kerri’s Story

Kerri Schommer There is a very long list of reasons that I came to CutThroat.  However I think the driving force has been my health. I will be the big 5-0 in July.  When you have that staring you in the face you realize you better get your act together while you still...

Jeff’s (OJ’s) Story

I was sitting around after my second daughter headed off to college 3 and ½ years ago and I decided I needed to add a new activity into my life.  It was in the Fall and I needed something to do in the off season from my tennis leagues.  I felt like I was becoming a...

Deana’s Story

Deana Bull About 4 years ago I felt really “stuck” and I needed a change in my life and my workout routine.  My sister, at the time, was really into CrossFit and encouraged me to look into it because she knew I would love it.  So I did, it looked super fun and it...

Gavin’s Story

Gavin Slater I had a work friend who talked me into trying CrossFit at another box. I stayed there a little over a year before they moved and increased their rates. I then looked at and visited a bunch of area gyms but felt most comfortable at CutThroat including the...

Linda Willkomm

I first heard about Crossfit from Scott Nickel, but I didn’t know what it was.  I thought it must be something for strong male athletes.  Then, I ran into a neighbor one summer who I hadn’t seen for a while and she looked GREAT.  I asked her what she’d done and she...

Mike (Tod) Luby

The "real story" about how I found CrossFit in the first place is quite long but I was 29 years old and had just found out my wife was pregnant. I had always been pretty fit and played a ton of sports. After college I had gotten exceedingly unhealthier year after...

Carolyn Hall

What brought me to CrossFit in the first place was actually a complete surprise to me. I came home from work one night and my husband Mike announced that he signed us up for a six week CrossFit challenge. I’m sure my face was priceless, I knew nothing about CrossFit...

Rory Roman

I began CrossFit in order to get back into shape and help feel better during the wrestling practices that I coach. My first impression of the gym was how well the coaches knew their athletes and how they knew what buttons to push to get the most out of them. As a...

Stacy Gustafson

What brought me to CrossFit in the first place was all the damn ads on Facebook for the New You Challenge back in January. I have never been a member of a gym or had a real workout routine, I tried running years ago but turned out to not be my thing. I saw the new you...

Mike Hall

I was starting my own business and I had an image of who I wanted to be. After a little bit of searching for what I felt was right for me, A 6 week challenge posted on Facebook. I had no idea what I was getting myself in to, but it ended up being not only what I was...

Barb Dawson

What brought me to CrossFit was my son, coach Patrick. He informed me that CutThroat had a New You Challenge whereby the attendees were my age and weight. You’d love it he said.  He mentioned I’d make new friends and since I was quite athletic in my younger days, I...

Scott Nickell

A friend from church brought me to CrossFit in the first place. My first impression was that it was just crazy and awesome all at the same time. Over time I’ve come to see the importance of training with a purpose, not just destroying yourself everyday. Certainly my...

Rosanne Allen

I first started CrossFit at Flatirons in Boulder over 9 years ago. I trained and competed in CrossFit for 4.5 yrs and then moved over to Olympic Lifting. My first impression of CrossFit was that it was really hard! It’s still hard but more skills have been introduced...

Chrissy Demarti: I remember Brian & Katie’s Garage

The way I found CrossFit in the first place goes back to the Midwest. I was living alone in a small town in Michigan and googled nearby gyms and 810 CrossFit was right down the street so I figured I would give it a try. The owner is on the CrossFit seminar staff and...

Scott McBeth: Community, Friendship and Support

In 2014 I was approaching age 55 and carrying more body weight than at any point in my life and knew that I needed to do something different if I wanted to continue to enjoy an active life. I had seen Katie and Brian compete several times and remember thinking that I...
