    You may be in pretty good shape, but unless you try CrossFit you'll never maximize your potential. CrossFit will bring your fitness to another level and bring you a new appreciation for hard work at the gym. I've always thought I was fit, but Im far from CrossFit fit. It is both humbling and motivating. Bear Mountain CrossFit has sooo many great people with different abilities, different body types, different strengths and weaknesses, but EVERYONE works hard. Coaches are knowledgeable and there's a friendly welcoming atmosphere. I highly recommend that you schedule a visit to Bear Mountain CrossFit.read more

    Bear Mountain CrossFit is the best place I’ve worked out ever. All the coaches are awesome and the owner, EJ, is my regular coach in the mornings. She never misses a day to cheer you on and give a tip to improve. It’s been a little less than a year since I first walked in, and everyday I’m glad I did. I’ve feel stronger everyday and have made some great friends. Never have I woken up at 5am with a smile so much as I do now.read more

    At first I was very hesitant, once I decided to give it a try I never looked back. It is one of the most welcoming gyms you will ever be a part of. Doesn’t matter your fitness level. It’s inclusive for everyone and genuinely the best time you will have exercising. You won’t regret it.read more

    I joined this past Nov and it’s truly a great environment. Everyone here wants you to succeed and they help you get through the tough workouts. The coaches are so supportive and push you to become better because they believe in you. I needed structure and to be held accountable to get my workouts in, and I get both here. It was intimidating at 1st because it’s nothing like a typical gym, but everyone has made me feel welcome since day 1. Would highly recommend to anyone interested!read more

    I recently moved to the area, and had to switch gyms to be closer to my home. Most crossfitters know that when you have a home gym that you love, the thought of switching hurts your heart. But I have been made to feel so welcome here. The sense of community here is rivaled by few. I'd encourage anyone who is looking, whether just for a drop-in or a new home, to come give us a try. I wasn't disappointed, and you won't be either!read more

    Bear Mountain Crossfit has changed my life! I can't explain how much of an integral part of my life BMCF has become. The hourly classes are constantly varied and are able to be done by professionals and newbies alike thanks to their scaling options. Coach EJ and Coach John are knowledgeable, and caring, and will do anything they can to help you succeed. The gym is always cleaned up after a day of sweat angels and chalk dust and there's always new stock in the retail store to peruse. I've been going to this CF for roughly two years now and I can honestly say that I have never left feeling unhappy or displeased. The community is amazing; everyone who walks into BMCF is friendly, supportive, and are willing to lend a helping hand wherever they can. There's fundraisers, toy drives, and socials, all of which provide a sense of belonging. I've never felt this at home at a gym before! I went from attending these classes 5x a month to 5x a week, all with the gentle encouragement from my coaches. This is my favorite place to be! It really has changed my mindset on not only fitness, but life in general. read more

    I cannot say enough great things about Bear Mountain CrossFit. At first I was nervous about joining because I was new to weight lifting, but the staff is so wonderful they explained everything thoroughly until I felt comfortable with each movement. The warm, open and instructive environment continues to make me feel comfortable, challenged and most importantly safe during each class. The people are so wonderful and welcoming that this place feels more like a community than just your standard gym. I am getting in the best shape of my life because of Bear Mountain CrossFit! Do yourself the biggest favor and check out a class!read more

    I’ve been to 2 other Crossfit gyms but Bear Mountain Crossfit is really special. The coaches pay attention to every athlete and are knowledgeable in what they are doing. They really take care of you in and outside of the gym by checking in on you from time to time. The other members are so supportive which makes this gym feel like a home away from home. I’ve reached so many milestones in terms of building strength and i know a huge part comes from the positive supportive community at this gym.read more

    I have been a member at BMCF for about 7 months now, so I felt it would be appropriate to update my initial review. That being said, BMCF has been a life-changing experience. I have achieved goals that I thought were a figure of my imagination, I've met new friends, and have gain self-confidence like never before. Thank you EJ and John for all of your hard work, dedication, and genuine concern about our goals and overall health. Although I understand that I have plenty of room for improvement, I know that I'll achieve each movement and strength component with y'alls guidance. You make me want to work out after long days in the office, which was never the case. I sincerely appreciate everything that y'all have done and am excited for what the future has in store for me. Cheers to you, as well as a fantastic business operation, and many more prosperous years together.read more

    I was in town for work and dropped in to Bear Mountain and it is an awesome space to workout! EJ welcomed me and showed me around, and John was an awesome coach for the classes I attended. The gym is clean and the equipment in great shape. All of the members were super friendly and made me feel at home. I will definitely be going back next time I’m in town!read more

    I recently started here at Bear Mountain CrossFit. From day one everyone was very nice and welcoming, you feel at home the moment you walk through the door. I came here to try to get in better shape and I can say in just a short time I am already feeling great (and noticing a flatter belly lol). Considering this is all new to me I am starting out slow but I can totally feel a difference already in my conditioning and overall well being. I am feeling stronger, my legs (which were always a weak point and have had previous injuries) are starting to feel stronger and more stable. The camaraderie here is also amazing. Everyone here is very supportive and really push you. This is only the beginning and I am very much looking forward to continuing here with the great people of Bear Mountain CrossFit.read more
