Before starting CrossFit, I was in the worst shape. I hadn’t exercised in two years. I thought that CrossFit was really intimidating before starting at Old Line. There was no way this was something that I could do.
Now I’m feeling great! I actually like it! Great group of people, great atmosphere. I like the variation in exercises, but I really like the diverse community. There are both young and old people here. I’ve lost weight – about 10 pounds, but more importantly, I feel more positive about myself and I have more energy now.
Awesome box, hidden gem, legit programming and coaching staff. Good family feel even first day in.
Where do I begin? This was an amazing buy. I was a little on the fence about trying CrossFit in general, but I am very glad I did it. Dave, one of the co-owners, was amazing at the intro sessions, communicating via e-mail. The people who go to the gym are amazing and very supportive. I found the workouts very intimidating because it was something new. The trainers are awesome especially, in my opinion, Tony (retired Drill Sargent) and Erika, who is a former soccer player for UMD. In my experience, these two trainers made me feel like I could do the workouts on a regular basis and made me feel confident after a workout, although I did test their patience sometimes. No two sessions were the same for me. Tony and Erika have been doing CrossFit for years, but when I first started I did not get any condescending looks of frustration or looks of laughter even though I gave them many reasons to laugh. I deliberately waited to write this review. I wanted to make sure I got the full experience before vouching for this gym. I have attended about three times a week for three weeks and am in my 4th week of the Groupon. I am so glad I bought this Groupon because now I will join Old Line CrossFit. For those who think I am making this up, you are more than welcome to attend a free class that Old Line offers and get a workout with either Tony or Ericka. Now I need to cancel my other gym membership, I’m sure that will be a workout in itself.
I was looking for something to motivate me to get fit again after moving back from overseas three years ago. I had originally thought CrossFit was for muscle heads, but I found out that it was actually for everyone! It is really a lot of fun! My favorite part of my CrossFit experience is this facility. The environment at Old Line CrossFit is really supportive. You challenge yourself every day. I have lost 9 pounds and 7 inches since I started and I have really started to gain back my confidence and really believe in myself. If you’re thinking about trying CrossFit, I say DO IT!
I was into fitness before starting CrossFit, but I decided to branch out and try some CrossFit classes. I visited other boxes in the area and they left me with a bad impression of CrossFit. They weren’t welcoming. I came to Old Line and I noticed that the coaches at Old Line really cared about me. My favorite part of my CrossFit experience so far is seeing myself grow and get stronger. I am back in my size 4s and overall have more energy! If you’re thinking of trying CrossFit, I say don’t listen to the stereotypes, just try it and I guarantee you’ll be hooked!
