where to start? since I began my journey of losing over 50 pounds and counting. in the process mistakes were made one of them and the biggest was to signing up for gold's gym where they just want your money and don't care about what you do there, gold's was not doing anything for me on the "weight plateau " situation. frustrated I decided to look for another gym on Google maps. the map showed me ACF, took a quick look but in reality it wasn't a gym per say. in fact it's something much better. not sure what to do i gave 'em a call and set up my first class. my first day I was very nervous but excited to see results, i was counting on them since coach Carlos guarantees results. the first week! oh men i was very sore and painfully happy, like a trick of magic i was sore before the class then in class the soreness went for a break somewhere. within two weeks or less, can't remember the scale show a much less weight number than I've been dealing with for 3 months of weight plateau. after the month i see results, changes, both physically and psychologically. gained muscle, confidence, self esteem , etc. whatever comes with being healthy you name it. what I'm trying to say is that paying for the program is worth it, every single penny, i literally sweat every penny. I'm loving it. signing up for ACF is one of the best investments I've done. "I'm half the men I used to be" physically I am. psychologically I'm twice the men I used to be. THANKS ACF

I have always been an on again off again member of a gym, and managed to maintain, what I felt was a decent level of fitness. I didn't realize how wrong I was or all that I was missing out on until I joined Animus / Corporal Crossfit. I went into the boot camp program after a Long hiatus of little physical activity, with some extra pounds and some weak knees from previous surgery. The coaches, Carlos & Jenny, not only gave me great encouragement but they also customized my workouts to help build the strength in my knees while still getting the most from each session. After 2 months I am completely addicted and am in love with the program. I don't think I have done anything so dynamic and challenging in my life, and it's amazing but I don't think I've ever done the same exact workout twice. My knees are now super strong and I am able to really push myself to new levels. I am full of energy, have better posture, I look and feel better, I am much stronger, and have a completely different perspective when now faced with daily challenges. I can't imagine ever going back to a conventional gym or workout program. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish with the proper coaching and guidance- It's absolutely life changing!

When I started at Animus Crossfit in April, I was nearing the end of my second semester in college, had recently quit my job, and was in need of something new. I had also noticed a few extra unwanted pounds I gained in the last year of working, going to school, and eating a lot of corner store snacks. I felt that i has become extremely lazy and no longer did any physical activity. I thought it was time for me to take control and start something new. I was aware of the new talk of the town that was Crossfit and when I found that Animus was so close, I decided to give it a try. I had no idea what to expect, and not having worked out or played sports in years, i was a bit worried. From my very first class I fell in love and regretted buying the one month deal instead of the two month. I even got my mom to sign up, knowing she was feeling out of shape, I knew she would (just like me) be hooked on it. What I love most about Animus Crossfit was how challenging it has been for me and how rewarding each class feels. Animus Crossfit's number one benefit is its wonderful coaches Carlos, Jenny, and Dayron, who make you feel like you are more than another number in a gym. I was genuinely impressed with the coaches' dedication to me as a member of their gym. I have noticed a lot of improvements not only has my time at Animus Crossfit improved my physical appearance, it has also improved the way I feel, reducing stress and boosting my energy. Animus Crossfit has not only made me a stronger person, but also a happier, more positive person. As I have progressed through the levels, moving from boot camp, to cross fit, I feel a sense of accomplishment after every workout. I don't see myself ever going to another gym, as long as these guys are around. Four months later, I have improved in innumerable each day is a new challenge to overcome and the folks at Animus have helped me much more than I ever expected. I recommend Animus for anyone who has a desire to be stronger, both mentally and physically, and I don't doubt that you'll fall in love and never want to leave.

I was a little hesitant about CF. I heard all the stories, but I wanted to try it out for myself. However, before I started I researched a lot of local CF gyms, but I found Animus seemed to be the best. After trying if for a months, that still is the case. The main reason is the personalized attention and a real low student/teacher ratio. The coaches know you and are aware of what you can do and can't, while they still push you. I've been doing it for only a month now, but all of the Animus coaches have been watching what I do and are very, very strick on form. The exercises being done are techincal, but with proper coaching I've been able to do them. So far, so very good!

I first came to Animus CrossFit five months ago when I got talked into buying a Groupon for bootcamp classes with a friend of mine. Little did I know it would be one of the best purchases I've made all year. I had slowly gained weight over the previous year and I had made it one of my goals to get healthy again. I had made some progress on my own, but then I found myself at a stand still. That's when I started coming to the boot camp classes at Animus. The workouts were challenging, but fun! And the coaches were friendly and encouraging. After the first couple of weeks, I was hooked. I looked forward to going and tried to go as often as I could. After my Groupon was finished, there was no doubt that I would continue coming. One of the great things about Animus/Corporal CrossFit is that there are so many other things to get involved in aside from the classes themselves, whether it be a run or some other specialized fitness class. I recently finished a 12 week nutritional challenge which completely changed the way I look at food in general and also as a means to reach my personal health and fitness goals. And for that I am forever grateful. I really appreciate how Coach Jenny, Carlos, and Dayron all make themselves so available to assist with any of your needs. They are so helpful and inspiring, and truly committed to helping anyone who walks through their doors achieve whatever goals they may have. They live and love what they teach, and it shows! The strength and confidence I have gained has permeated every other aspect of my life and all these positive changes I'm experiencing couldn't have come at a better time. I am a fan of these guys for life!

I had just heard about crossfit, and so I signed up for the Animus bootcamp to see what it was all about. The bootcamp isn't the same as the crossfit class, but it's challenging in its own right. I went from not working out at all to working out at least 3x/week. I don't know much about fitness, but I know that I LOVE this gym. It's only been a couple of weeks and I'm losing weight and inches all over, and gaining strength which is the most important to me. Coach Carlos and Jenny really make the effort to get to know you and to tailor the workout to what is best for you. The program really pushes you past your limits and requires dedication and effort. Even with an injury, there are ways to workout that will still have you covered in sweat. Anyone from any level of fitness can do it and can benefit. They help with all aspects of weight loss and fitness; nutrition, gaining muscle, etc. Everything is personal, and you get attention that you won't normally get from a huge class. Anyone who wants to try something different or get a push in the right direction should give their program a try, and see how amazing it is.

I started a weight loss journey in late November 2011. I started to eat better and get active and living a healthier lifestyle. After a couple of rounds of a home video workout I was still missing something, I needed more. So that's when I decided to pay Animus CrossFit a visit. I decided to start off by starting the bootcamp program they offer, I was 34 going on 35 at the time and was afraid to jump into CrossFit immediately thinking I might get intimidated or hurt myself as I've seen or heard people do. I was stiff and my endurance and strength weren't all that. But the coaches at Animus, Carlos, Jenny, and Dayron worked with me, guided me through every movement and skill as I gradually got better and better. My fellow athletes are also amazing, everyone checks their ego at the door. The coaches helped me out with my nutrition and are always there to push me or catch me. I eventually graduated to CrossFit under the guidance of my coaches and have been a box junkie for the last three months. I'm stronger both mentally and physically, and I'm no longer stiff, I'm an athlete again. This is a great place to start a CrossFit journey. Small classes, no egos and genuinely a family type bond between our coaches and athletes. Our coaches are very approachable. What they have going in this CrossFit is unique. They have been such an instrumental part of my healthy lifestyle and its success but they will never take any credit for that, they would say "it's all you," which I believe now. I'm 35 years old and I will kick my 18 year old version's butt. I'm running 5k's, Olympic weightlifting, and taking part in races such as Spartan Race and others and its only the beginning. They have inspired me to be the best me I can be and that can't be measured with any words. I am truly indebted to them for they have helped me regain my health and keep it. Thanks for believing in me.
