What advice would you give someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit 740? Do not waste anymore time thinking about it! JUST DO IT!! Life is too short!

You will wonder why you didn’t start sooner!


Anything else you would like to add? CrossFit 740 has truly impacted my life in ways that is hard to put in words. It’s not just a place I go to to workout or “go through the motions” as a lot of people do in their everyday gyms. This is my getaway! My “me time”! Even on days I am struggling the most. I can find a shoulder to lean on at CrossFit 740! I can find a caring friend to listen, to encourage and uplift me. It’s not just about getting a good workout to stay healthy. We do “life” together! A special thanks to Dustin for the environment he has created! Where else can you go where the gym owner will hold your crying infant so you can get a workout in? NOWHERE!


Don’t waste anymore time contemplating¬† if CrossFit 740 is right for you! I am here to tell you IT IS, and you will be welcomed with open arms!!!
