I remember starting the gym in January of 2013. I was going there for about two months until I realized I was not getting the results I wanted. One day I saw a friend on Facebook and noticed how much weight he had lost, I asked him what he was doing and he told me he had started Crossfit training. I had heard of it before but did not think too much of it, I started asking him questions and he told me how good it had worked out for him. He gave me the number to Animus Crossfit and I called and made the appointment with Jennifer Arias. On the day of my appointment I was a bit skeptical of this whole Crossfit thing; still I met with Carlos Arias and he me do some exercises which let me know how out of shape I was, wow. He explained to me how and broke down basically how Crossfit works and the nutrition plan that would let me meet my goal, so I decided to give it a try. I still remember the first workout which left me thinking what have I got myself into? The exercises that I performed were totally different that I had done before in the gym. I followed the diet plan and gave maximum effort at every training session and within the first couple of months I started noticing change in my body and I started wearing clothes that I had not worn in years. With the training that Carlos , Jennifer and Dayron provide and coach you through I have lost over 35 pds. and counting. I can honestly say that it has been the best decision I have ever made regarding my health and exercise routine. I always look forward to every training session and the family oriented atmosphere and support keeps you motivated to reach your goals. Carlos De La Cruz.

Before joining CCF, I was part of another box. After 2 months of training at the other box, I did not feel like I was part of a family. The coaches were constantly shouting and focused more on their star members. I did some research and came upon Corporal Cross Fit. I decided to give it a try. Little did I know that I on my first day I would fall in love with it. CCF is the complete opposite from my first experience. The coaches are always attentive to all of the members equally. Coach Carlos, Jenny and Dayron motivate me to continue to push myself, but at the same time not to overdo it. I enjoy waking up early to do my WOD. The short but intense workouts have become my morning doses of energy. I am prepared to conquer the world after working out. At CCF, I feel a part of a big family. All the members motivate each other and are there as moral supports. I am so excited to be a part of CCF that even my family noticed. My brother and mother both decided to join me and they love it. My mother even asked us to gift her 6 month membership for her birthday (which of course we gave her). We are all excited to have found a place we enjoy going to. Your concept of exercise will never be the same after you join Corporal CrossFit.

After my end of active service with the Marine Corps in 1993 at age 21, my line of thinking was something like: “I’ll never allow myself to be out of shape”. This line of thinking held true for the first 6 months but then the reality of everyday life started taking over; family, work, the daily grind. I was actually really proud of the fact that I was able to maintain my weight gain to less than 5 lbs throughout my thirties. What I had not taken into consideration was the fact that my energy level, physical appearance and overall health were going in a negative direction. After looking at a picture of myself taken during a holiday event last December (2012), I knew that it was time to take action. Weight management was not really the metric by which I could measure my health and nowhere was this more evident that by that one picture. I looked fat, swollen really, and yet I still weighed very close to what I weighed when I was an active duty Marine. So, that picture made me seek the help that I would need to ensure that I could have the type of lifestyle that I wanted to live. A lot of the activities that I enjoy require a certain level of stamina; dirt bikes, mountain biking and hiking. I knew that if I continued the path that I was headed, I would not be able to perform those activities for much longer. I met Coach Carlos in mid-December of 2012 and he laid out a “plan” that would get me from point A (where I was) to point B (where I wanted to be). I immediately made the commitment to myself and my family that I would stick with the plan, no matter what. By following Coach Carlos’ recommendations, I had lost 7 lbs between December 19th and January 4th. January 4th I started my workouts, 3 times a week, under the careful supervision of the staff. I can’t say enough about the professionalism and enthusiasm that Coach Dayron and Coach Jenny bring with them every day. They have managed to create an atmosphere that promotes team work even when we are only competing against our own ability to complete the workouts. There has been a team environment that makes me not want to miss any of my workouts. Here I am 9 months after beginning my program, 20 lbs lighter but much stronger. Flexibility has increased tremendously, allowing me to complete movements that were all but impossible when I began the program. I am happy to say that I am actually in better shape than when I was an active duty Infantry Marine. I owe this to the improved training program and nutritional plan that Coach Carlos recommended. I encourage anyone, at any age to take a look at yourself and think if that is really the best you. I feel great when I get compliments from my wife, especially when we look at pictures of only 10 months ago and the change is so dramatic. Coach Carlos and his staff have managed to make physical fitness a part of my life and for that I am tremendously grateful. Semper Fidelis, Cesar A. Gomez

I would have never believed anyone who would have told me that at the age of 52 I would be working out and actually enjoying it. Every time I went to a doctor’s visit, I was reminded that I had to be physically active. I signed up to many gyms only to cancel my membership after a month or two. I tried doing Zumba at home, but I did not enjoy the lonely workouts. It got to the point that nothing motivated me, so I just decided not to do anything. My kids joined CCF and it was the first time that I had seen them wake up early and so motivated to workout. They kept on telling me that I should joined them in the morning workouts. I finally gave in and went with them. My first time in CCF was unforgettable. I thought I was going to die, but the coaches keep on motivating me. I have been at CCF for 4 months and I love it. I wake up every morning to get my doses of workout. I feel more energized today than what I have had in years. CCF is not a gym; it is a big family that is willing to help each other reach our fitness and personal goals.

My CrossFit journey has been 4 years in the making, and it has culminated in the best experience I've ever had with a CrossFit gym. I've been an athlete all my life, and when I first discovered CrossFit in 2009, I was hooked. I joined a box in Miami with several of my friends, and I'd spend 5-6 days per week after work at the gym. There was usually a solid group of 12-15 athletes each time. I did this for about a year, and then I went off to medical school. Even though I joined two different CrossFit gyms in different cities in VA, I didn't feel connected to the other athletes. I'll never forget an instance where at one of the boxes, the owner called me out for wearing gloves during one of the WODs. She proceeded to call me a princess because I didn't suck it up like the rest of the women and just lift with already torn up hands. Needless to say, after that experience, I didn't return to that gym. Fast forward from August 2010 to June 2013, although medical school teaches us the importance of health and fitness, it inadvertently promotes a sedentary lifestyle to their students. Countless hours studying for exams, even more hours sitting through lectures, not getting enough sleep, eating whatever food was the easiest and quickest to make and consume just to spend the least amount of time possible NOT studying. All of this took a huge toll on my body. In the process I gained almost 20 lbs. Now, over the span of 3 years, that doesn't seem like a lot, but on a 5-foot frame, that is a lot of weight. This is especially true since I had always been an athlete. By the time I was finished with my third year and about to start my fourth and final year of medical school, I needed a change. I moved back to Miami and immediately started looking for another CrossFit to join. At this point, it seemed like there was a box at every corner! I called several places, each of them promoting their unlimited plans for low prices, yet they'd talk about how they would have 20+ athletes per class! I thought that was absolutely insane!! After a lot of failed attempts to find a good match, I came across Corporal CrossFit. What sold me from the get-go was the 8:1 athlete to coach ratio. After my last two experiences in Virginia and being incredibly intimidated by all the numerous hardcore athletes I would workout with, I thought that the more intimate group would make me feel less self-conscious about myself. With that alone, I was sold. From the first conversation with Jenny to my first meeting with Carlos, I knew that this was the box for me. The first workout with the group, everyone was so nice and helpful. It was warm and inviting. The WOD, even though it was a tough one, Dayron was an excellent coach and made sure that everything was scaled to my ability and that my form was on point. Even though I could barely walk the next few days, I was so excited to go back!! My experience at CCF has been one of a kind. The WODs are tough, but effective. I don't have to go 7 days per week to get results. After my first month with diet and exercise, I dropped a few pounds as well as an inch from several areas around my body. The program that they have setup is one that will result in success. Carlos, Jenny and Dayron are knowledgable and competent. They are encouraging and really know how to motivate their athletes. They will even make sure to stop you when you're pushing yourself beyond the limit in an effort to avoid injury. I promote CCF to everyone that is willing to listen and if you are considering joining CrossFit, I highly recommend Corporal CrossFit!! They're one of a kind and a gem in this overly saturated city.

The day I walked into CCF I really did not know what to expect. Playing high school football I suffered an injury that caused me to have two screws permanently inserted into my left ankle. I thought that I would not be able to handle the workouts because of this injury so I did not know if the trainers would keep me around or send me home. One month later my entire mindset has changed. Not only did CCF motivate and help me to push myself, but they worked around my injury allowing me to get the same amount of exercise and training just in a different form. They work with you not against you. If you can't handle some of the workouts,they will modify the workout allowing you to get the same push and burn but in an excersize that you can handle. I am very grateful for CCF because now I have more energy and i am motivated for the new challenges that await. They have thought me that you shouldn't assume you can't until you try it -Khalil Guerra
