    Two of us started semi-private lessons with Aimee in May, 2011. I’m in my early 60’s and the other person was half my age so I was concerned how the lessons would translate for our age, size and capability differences. Aimee not only knows her stuff to teach effectively to one’s individual capabilities, but does some super ninja mind tricks to keep you motivated so you push through your workouts. I always arrive anxious and leave feeling happy, exhausted and accomplished. Aimee motivates and equips me to do things I never imagined I could do in physical strength and endurance which translates to a healthier everyday life. I have explicit trust in Aimee! I was so out of shape as in I couldn’t run 200 feet without stopping several times! I’m now able to do more everyday life things and eager to try new things. I’ve now started a list of “firsts” for me: 3 week trip to southeast India volunteering to build a library for an orphanage; running/walking a 5K Color Run; hiking 2 trails on Oahu I refused to do before; attempting surfing in Costa Rica; horseback riding on a beach; riding a catamaran during rough weather without getting seasick and zip lining in Cancun. Oh, and my personal favorite, dead weight lifting 207-1/2#...so far! The list may be shorter in my 70’s, but for now the list is growing and life is grand![less]

    After a few years of very little exercise, I knew it was time to do something. As a former competitive swimmer in high school and college I had a hard time finding something that I liked and that I would stick with. I started CrossFit in the Spring of 2013.

    After a few years of very little exercise, I knew it was time to do something. As a former competitive swimmer in high school and college I had a hard time finding something that I liked and that I would stick with. I started CrossFit in the Spring of 2013. I had no idea what to expect but found that I love the camaraderie, competitive environment, and working out somewhere that pushes people to be stronger then they think possible. CrossFit kop helps normal people, like me, a mother with a 3 kids and crazy schedules, lead more functional and energized lives. Some added bonuses: all my aches and pains have disappeared, I have dropped a whole pant size! It is fun to be strong and it’s the best thing that has happened to me since I got out of the pool.[less]

    When I first decided to check out Crossfit King of Prussia I was nervous, excited, and unsure of what I was doing all at the same time. The day I met Aimee and the community at her gym all my hesitations evaporated and it became one of the best decisions I have ever made. Initially, my goal was to lose weight and feel good about the way I looked - I had no idea at the time how many ways Crossfit King of Prussia would positively impact my life. Working with Aimee to help me dial in my nutrition, I was able to gain muscle, shed body fat, and found myself 1 pound away from my body weight goal within the first 9 months! (That was about 1 pound per month) It was the first time in my life I actually saw results from all the “sweat equity” I put in to creating a healthier me. Not only was I starting to feel better and look better, I gained mental fortitude. I began to see the potential I had not only in the gym, but in my everyday life. Because of the community at Crossfit King of Prussia, I was able to stay determined, continued to believe in myself and learned how to focus on small manageable goals. Thanks to Aimee and her gym I have become a much stronger, positive, and determined person inside and outside of the gym. If you are looking for a gym that will help bring out the best in yourself in all aspects of life (the side effect of looking and feeling great!), then Crossfit King of Prussia is for you. [less]

    I wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed my experience at crossfit KOP and how much I appreciate all that you and Jason put into developing the KOP community. After being seriously injured and then having to medically retire from gymnastics, I never thought that I would find a new athletic outlet. I started CrossFit Kop not being able to do an air squat, and now I'm doing a body weight (+1 pound) front squat. I cannot even put into words how much CrossFit has changed my life. It has allowed me to once again channel my inner athlete, and it has become something that I want to do and love to do on a daily basis. I feel that with Crossfit I now have a way to have an athletic lifestyle, and be a part of a community that is unlike anything else I've experienced.[less]

    Before I joined Crossfit KOP, I was a skinny-fat 16 year old girl at 5'2" and 100 lbs. I had no muscle tone and the only (albeit mild) exercise I got was from horseback riding. I've never been much of an athlete due to my lack of competitive spirit and coordination, but after I started running regularly, I began to realize the mental benefits of physical activity and became more interested in trying a class of some sort. When Crossfit came up in a conversation between my brother Paul and I, he suggested we try it. I was intimidated after watching a video, and thought I could never do something so intense. Regardless, Paul and I signed up for an intro class. I remember not being able to air squat without being on my toes and barely being able push press a 45 lb. bar during the fundamentals. Afterwards, I started attending classes 3 days per week. I was the youngest in the class at 16 years old, but it became quickly apparent that age doesn't matter; as long as you show up and try, you will be welcomed with open arms. I had to scale down a lot of the WODs in the beginning, but finally after a few months I was able to Rx a WOD for the first time. Over the course of 6 months I gained 15 lbs. of much needed muscle and made enormous gains in my lifts. Never would I have thought that I would actually enjoy weightlifting and intense workouts, but the physical and mental gains from it are unparalleled. I found it easier to carry groceries, walk up stairs, etc. and carried around a new sense of confidence knowing what I had accomplished. Thank you Crossfit KOP!!![less]
