It’s party time!

Last week we sent out heart felt thank-you cards along with a formal invitation to our party. If you didn’t get one, you’re still invited!
Please join us as we celebrate and send off CFSLU with a bang! Everyone is welcome!
Our last day of classes will be Thursday, May 28th

SLU invitation

CrossFit SLU has given me . . . 

“…a new gym that I felt very welcomed to go to. I appreciate the staff and athletes being so friendly and welcoming.”

“…so much confidence and strength and endurance!”

“…insight into the benefits of weight training.”

“…an introduction to a lot of great people!”

“…by attending SLU over the past two years I’ve learned that I’m so much stronger than I give myself credit for, and I mean this more than just physically. While I continue to PR, I also find myself pushing past my self-imposed limits. When I might have stopped before, now I do my best to keep going. There are things that I know I can do but I just haven’t reached yet (like muscle ups and handstands!) and SLU has provided me with an encouraging environment to try, learn, and prove this to myself. SLU has also given me some great friends, many of whom know me in an entirely different way than my non-gym friends, which is a truly incredible thing. With our time at SLU waning, every day I go to class I do my best to savor my time here. I feel lucky to have experienced such an amazing place with such genuine, strong, and inspiring people.”

“…an expansive view into the myriad ways that fitness can be mentally engaging, physically demanding, and most of all, super duper fun.”

“…double unders. And Jessie. I am going to steal her. :)”

“…CFSLU has taught me to love working out again. I don’t believe that I could ever get back into exercising at my age, but if it weren’t for CFSLU, I wouldn’t have gotten back in to shape, nor would I have built such an awesome gym at home!”

“…strength, lifelong friendships and a positive place to come to everyday.”

“…mad gainz.”
