As a 48 year old endurance runner I found myself continuously losing overall strength as I just stuck to what I was good at. Concerned I tried many of the traditional strength programs at our Gym with not much success. Frankly I did not enjoy just pushing iron around.
My son-in-law turned me on to this Crossfit concept. He did his homework researching many of the local gyms and found Cascade as one of the best in the area. I can see why, the group at Cascade were welcoming and continue to guide you to your goals.
Strength training is fun again.

As a husband and father of 3 young children, I knew I needed to get healthy. At age 30 I could barely chase my kids around without getting extremely short on breath. It had been about 12 years and 80 pounds since I felt healthy and in shape. I started Cascade CrossFit’s Fundamentals Class in January and nearly passed out after the first 5 minute workout. The next workout wasn’t any better. The trainers didn’t judge me, all they did was encourage and motivate me to keep working. They also made sure I was being safe and didn’t make me feel awkward about it. I learned later that they knew something that I didn’t at the moment… that I could accomplish my goals if I had the right environment and set my mind to it.
Like a broken record, you’ll hear the trainers say that you can’t outwork a bad diet. So on “Day 1” of my official membership I started the 30 Day Paleo Challenge. I knew I needed a lifestyle change so my diet had to change too. By mid-February I was making it through workouts and down 20 lbs. It was one of the toughest and best 30 days of my life. I still have a ton of improving to do, but this group of owners, coaches and members support and encourage each other toward success. I know that with hard work and the support of Cascade CrossFit I can improve my performance, feel healthier, and shed off another 50 pounds to reach my goal weight.
For anyone looking to better themselves physically and mentally, Cascade CrossFit is the place to be! You will learn things about yourself and be encouraged to push harder than you ever thought you could go. Thank you Cascade CrossFit! I am excited about the journey ahead…

We have been coming to Cascade Crossfit for about 5 months now. Both of us have always worked out and thought we were in good shape until we started Crossfit! Thanks to Kyle and Tenny and everyone at Cascade Crossfit – we are now in the best shape we have ever been in! Every workout is different so we never get bored…everyone is friendly and supportive. We also love that all the members of Cascade Crossfit are at different fitness levels – so all members are challenged and inspired – at the same time! Another important thing to note is that the trainers always take time to make sure that we know HOW to do the workout before we start. Thanks Cascade Crossfit for helping us achieve our workout goals – we could never go back to a “regular” gym.

I’ve been coming to Cascade CrossFit for a little over a month now and couldn’t be happier with the results. Kyle and the trainers are very knowledgeable trainers and are very motivating to be around. They have designed the perfect gym which helps implement their workouts which has got me in the best shape of my life a lot quicker then I had ever imagined. The combination of Dean’s olympic lifting background with Kyle’s Met-Con background creates the perfect workout! I look forward every day to my workout and the other members are great to be around and workout with. Every other gym I feel like I’m paying too much and not getting anything back. Cascade Crossfit is by far the most affordable and largest gym of its kind around. My wife who was pregnant, also was able to stay in great shape during and after her pregnancy. I would never recommend any other gym besides Cascade Crossfit!

It’s hard to even begin to explain what Cascade Crossfit has done for me. I entered the gym for the 1st time, overweight and very out of shape. I started so slow, doing a modified workout every time. My goal was simply to finish. The people and trainers were so encouraging. Some even running or rowing with me even after they’d finished their workout. I notice changes in my body both in strength and shape. I’d gotten to the point that my body couldn’t wait to go back in to the gym. It didn’t take long for everyday tasks to become easier. Now, I no longer do a modified workout and my goal has become to not come in last. It has given me such confidence that now I am even training to run a 5k with my son. I know I can do it! Thank you to all the trainers and members. I expect to continue seeing improvement in myself and everybody.
