This was my Crossfit family for 3 years. Coach Ashley and Jonathan are wonderfully knowledgeable, patient, and welcoming. I miss my 6am crew. If you are looking for a great place to work out, test yourself and build your tribe, then this IS the place for you.
I have been going to NRCF since august 2015 and I can't recommend it enough. When I started I could hardly squat with an empty bar, but the coaches have diligently worked with me and helped me to push myself more than I ever thought I could. Coach Ashley in particular has a passion for what she is doing and makes every class she teaches a fun and challenging experience. The member community is excellent as well. Everyone is friendly and approachable.
I can't tell you how many times I've joined gyms and then ultimately end up wasting money and not going. Ashley has created an environment that makes it FUN to go to, and challenges me physically while being in a great environment. Just like the other people have commented - it becomes your family.
When my former CrossFit box closed during the COVID-19 pandemic, I was lost and had to find a place to go that fit my needs, as well as fit the personality that I expected from a gym. After my search I found this in DFX CrossFit. They have welcomed me with open arms, and the community has rallied around the new members and made me feel welcome and allowed me to regain my strength and enjoyment that I was missing. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new CrossFit home!
I have been going to DFX CrossFit for almost 5 years and it is the best investment I have ever made. I have become stronger and lost weight and constantly become better overall. Ashley and Jonathan are such wonderful owners who invest their time and knowledge in every member. The head coach Heather has also helped me become better and is helping me achieve new goals that I have set and is one of the best coaches I have worked with. The other members of the gym have become family in and outside of the gym. I can’t recommend this gym enough!
Great community of athletes that are supportive and fun to be around!
