You won't regret it! I was definitely nervous, intimidated because of what i perceived CrossFit was all about. I couldn't have been more wrong. This was my first time lifting, for real. Day one in class - you see there is nothing to be afraid of! Support from coaches and other members....modifications....goals....progress....FUN....and body transforming!  See you at class!

It will be the best decision you’ll ever make. CrossFit changed my life.  I am a different person physically, mentally, and socially since I started CrossFit almost 4 years ago.  It has made me so much more confident and brought me way out of my shell. You never have to worry about what you can’t do, because CrossFit is infinitely scalable. It’s for anyone and everyone. You definitely won’t regret it!

A few years ago, there was a buzz around town that a new CrossFit gym, CrossFit First Down, was opening. I decided to drop in just to check it out.  Boy am I glad I did!  It has forever changed my life!!  

I have been a member at other smaller gyms and larger global gyms, but nowhere have I found what First Down offers!  For starters, their amazing and knowledgeable coaching staff works with each individual to help them on their personal fitness journey; to help them achieve their personal fitness goals, however big or small.  The beauty of CrossFit is that it is designed for everyone, regardless of your fitness level or your age (I am a 52 year old mother of two who works full-time).  Every workout can be modified based on the athlete’s abilities and goals!  With every workout, the coaches at First Down ensure that each athlete is set on their personal track for success!!!  

The sense of community and camaraderie at First Down surpass all other gyms.  The minute you walk through those doors, you immediately feel included!!  You are not judged; instead you are embraced in a feeling of belonging and support.

Like most others contemplating starting a new work out regime, I felt the same way; “I need to be in shape before I start working out.”  CrossFit is different.  At First Down, the coaches are there to help you get in shape regardless of where you are starting from.  

Here at First Down will you will not only find the best coaching staff, but a clean and well maintained facility.  In addition to their state of the art equipment, there are showers for both men and women….and did I mention they are walking distance from the commuter rail!!!

I promise you, once you walk through the doors of Cross Fit First Down; your life will change forever….a change for the better!

I can’t say enough great things about CFFD! As a full-time working mother of 2 very active young kids, I don’t have a lot of extra time on my hands. I have always loved to exercise, as an adult I missed the feeling of being an athlete. I searched for this through marathons, triathlons, obstacle course racing, and a variety of classes at the gym. However, I was constantly met with feeling like something was missing. Then I joined CFFD. I was intimidated and nervous, as I had never really strength trained before. From day one the coaches went out of their way to teach me the progressions so that I could learn the movements correctly, and in every class I still learn something new. The workouts are incredibly fulfilling, always changing, and there is always something else to work on, which keeps me from feeling like I will not plateau. The coaches at CFFD take the time to understand my goals and they push me to achieve them. Physically, I have gained strength and feel like an athlete again. Personally, I have gained friends and a support system. CFFD has created a supportive, trusting, friendly, and encouraging community for myself and family. My husband has been a member for 2.5 years and my son often comes with me to classes. We feel very lucky to have found CFFD and their amazing coaches!
