    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]

    I’ve always been active and participated in a variety of sports since I was a child. Throughout high school and college is when I lifted weights on a daily basis. Staying active and eating well had always been a priority, but since finding CrossFit I have taken my mind and body to new limits. This coming July will be a year since I’ve joined CrossFit KOP and the only regret I have is not finding the sport of fitness sooner. After over 10 years of power lifting and strength training at “globo gym”, I got bored of my routine and took about half a year off from weightlifting. The itch to work out came back and at the time a few of my friends started CrossFit at their respective boxes and they were raving about it. Once I heard about the workouts, I knew that it was for me and it was the next step in my fitness journey. Before joining CrossFit KOP, I tried a few WODs at one of my friend’s boxes and the experience only confirmed my beliefs. Eager to start as soon as possible, I reached out to Aimee Lyons and scheduled my introductory and fundamentals classes. My first fundamentals class was a humbling experience and I realized I needed to start from scratch, to re acquire the new skills and movements, as well as work on old ones. I was a little timid during my first couple of classes because I was unsure of myself, but that all changed. The coaching staff and members always make an effort to acknowledge and greet newcomers. The community at CrossFit KOP is truly one of a kind. I feel as if I’m part of something bigger, a second family, a group of people with whom I really enjoy spending time with in and out of the box. Aside from the community, what separates CrossFit KOP from other boxes is the coaching. Their knowledge of the movements, coaching cues, and dedication to their specializations are the reasons behind my success within the sport. There has not been one class where I did not acquire new knowledge and skill. I’ve surpassed old plateaus, am continuing to set new personal records all while having fun. I consider myself lucky to have found this great community that Aimee and Jason have built and will continue becoming a better athlete as long as my body lets me. [less]
