Crossfit Per Ardua is more than a gym, it's more than a daily's a community full of positive and motivated individuals all cheering on one another as we all work towards our individual goals. Crossfit has changed my life, it has given me the sense of community, team and belonging that I've never had before.

I started CrossFit 4 years ago in April. It's definitely the most fun I've had working out in my life. I was always involved in sports in school but after high school I didn't have much for an outlet for fun physical activities. CrossFit has given me back that fun sense of competition I always loved about sports. I've seen tones of improvements in my strength over the past 4 years and I'm definitely in the best shape of my life! After doing CrossFit there's really no turning back!!
