Just over a year ago I joined Broad Ripple Fit Club. I knew that I was ready for some kind of life change and after weeks of agonizing and waffling I finally walked through the door. From past experience I have learned the growth that will come from walking through the threshold of vulnerability....the progress that can be achieved by putting one foot in front of the other. I’m nowhere close to being a national level athlete nor can I lift a 200lb barbell over my head, BUT.....I have never felt healthier, stronger or SEXIER in my entire life! I just want to thank the coaches, community and the BRX program for making me feel like a valued member of a wonderful family! Fitness will forever be an important part of my life!! No matter what your goals are, if you want to change, you have to start somewhere. Go get it and don’t stop!!!
I can't say enough good things about this place! The workouts are challenging and the environment is supportive and motivating. All of the workouts can be scaled to meet me where I am, and there's no judgment. I've experienced great results in a few short months by just showing up, listening to training and nutrition advice and putting in the effort - and I know it will continue because it's all fun, reasonable and sustainable. The coaches are all top notch and much attention is paid to warming up, cooling down and accessory exercises which has improved my mobility more than yoga. And the value is incredible when you consider the group sizes and your access to the coaches. I look forward to walking in those doors everyday and wish I would have done it years ago!
Been at BRFC for a year now. I’ve lost 25 pounds and made huge gains in my lifts and strength. I can’t imagine a more inclusive community that makes everyone feel welcome. The coaches at BRFC are very knowledgeable, encouraging, and continue to motivate me to be the best I can be! Come check it out.
I love this place! It's hard for me to get motivated to workout, but the friendly atmosphere, upbeat/ genuinely happy coaching team, and interesting workouts have made it easy for an unmotivated guy like me to workout ... I just show up and they have a planned hour-long workout scheduled for me (and the rest of the class). It also doesn't hurt that there are noticeable physical improvements since I started going here. What I thought was difficult in their best beginners program now is a good warm-up. My only regret is that I didn't try this years ago when I first heard about it. Don't get me wrong. Every class I go to I'm grateful (afterward) to have survived, but I love it too. It's hard work, but the people and coaches here somehow make it enjoyable hard work.
Just like many Monon trail walkers, I passed by this place ever since they started in a small garage building and wondered what exactly they do inside their building. Fast forward 3-4 years, I finally stepped inside to find out what they do and how they work out. I wanted to get back into regular work out after some incidents which left me in a “recovery mode” for too long. After a short consultation with Jeff, I was offered either think some more and start in May with beginners course or start in April’s beginner course which started in 5 minutes. Normally I do not take that type of gamble, but I said what the heck and went with it. Little did I know that it was one of the best decision I made for my health. My goal was and is for me to maintain an active lifestyle. I wanted to learn and practice new movements and be able to know and see progress in my workout routine. Broad ripple Fit Club does just that. They built my confidence and workout level during the beginners course - I was introduced to so many different techniques during this time and able to learn what I liked and disliked. Afterwards, May and June flew by as I tried to build my routine and learn/practice many different movements. Now going into July, I am now going to my workout classes almost every day of week. Although I am not obsessed with numbers, My weight has been reduced from 203lbs to 185lbs. I couldn’t even do a 10 burpees, but now I can continue on and do many AMRAP of those for awhile. I have recently started to do double unders after a long and persistent practice of jump ropes. I did not even know what Turkish Getup was, but now I am considering making it as my workout goal for next month. Broad Ripple Fit Club propels me to continue to build myself up with extreme positive environment. As somebody who has been intimidated by stereotypes of gym people, I can definitely say all members of this gym has been very accepting and encouraging for a complete beginner like myself. They are also extremely accepting of everyone regardless of their background, and I am very proud of this place for that. If you want a place where you can kick start your healthy life or continue to build your strength and skills, I think you will find a home here at Broad Ripple Fit Club
This is now my second pregnancy to workout at BRFC and there's no place I'd rather be! EVERY movement is demonstrated for EVERY workout, and there's always a modification when needed. Where else do you get that? And the Coaches? BEST THERE IS!!! I wouldn't trust my pregnancy fitness with any other gym. Thanks for everything!
I needed a more challenging fitness routine & CFBR fit the bill. The workouts vary each day & the coaches are excellent! They've helped me increase my mobility, strength, & endurance. If you're looking for a gym to improve your physical, as well as your mental...give CFBR a try, you won't be disappointed.
Joining BRFC is by far the best fitness decision I've ever made in my life. The coaches are top-notch and focus on technique more than anything. Did I mention that I don't have to worry about programming my own workouts anymore?
I joined CFBR this June and I couldn't be happier with it! The coaches at CFBR have been fantastic, and the intro course really helped ease me into both the Crossfit workouts and the community there. I went from feeling intimidated by the unfamiliarty of working out with barbells to looking forward to getting to go there. The community is great! I have received so much encouragement from other crossfitters, whether they give me tips on my lifting or encourage me to keep on going when I think I can't. I've gained strength, endurance and energy. I'm really happy I made the choice to join there! . .
You can tell that CFBR actually cares about everyone's success. This is the best choice I've made for my fitness goals. I appreciate the constructive feedback I get from the coaches at CFBR during class. As someone new to crossfit, I was very concerned about not being successful. I very quickly discovered that not only do the coaches encourage you, but so do other members. Any question I've ever asked via email has been answered super quickly. They are committed to making sure members are happy and well informed. There's also events like Barbells for Boobs or the upcoming Halloween activities that allow members to become even more of a community. Thanks so much, CFBR!!!
Welcome to the Fitness Party! Whether you’re new to the fitness game altogether or getting back on the train after a time away, WELCOME TO THE PARTY! We’re so glad you’re here (and, no, it’s not just the endorphins talking). It can be overwhelming to know where and how to start on the road to your best, fittest life, but that’s where we come in! We work with dozens of new members each month, and have compiled some of our favorite – and most effective – tips for how to make your transition the smoothest it can be. You Need to Know: 1. Your “why”, “what” and “how”. Why now? What is your motivation for starting/continuing/changing your health and wellness routine? It’s crucial to identify your motivators so that on the days you don’t feel like showing up, you have a gentle reminder as to why you should. Once you identify your why, it’s much easier to figure out what your goals are and how you’ll achieve them. 2. That you can’t outwork a bad diet. As much as we want to think working out gives us a free pass to eat whatever we want, it doesn’t. In fact, it means exactly the opposite: The way you eat should improve in order to fuel your new fitness and wellness regimen! Making healthy choices doesn’t have to be complicated, and it really focuses around one, main idea: Eat Whole Foods And Log Everything. If you are eating real, nutrient-dense foods (think about shopping the outer perimeter of the grocery store) and tracking the food that you’re eating for general portion control awareness, you are doing exactly what you need to do. Lots of people find it’s helpful to have specific macro nutrient goals to work towards (and the F5 Method can help you with that!), but if you’re just starting off, keep it simple. Eat Whole Foods and Log Everything. 3. Your limits. If you’re just starting a workout routine, know your limits! Don’t push yourself too hard too quickly and run the risk of injury. Consider attending classes 3 times/week for the first month or so to give your body time to adjust to the new intensity and training style. It can also be HOT during workouts, so knowing when you need to take a water break or a quick breather during the workout is important – and very normal! 4. Mastering the basics is the most important. Don’t worry about adding weight to your goblet squat until you can master the air squat. It can be easy to feel pressured to “outperform” others around you, but if you can’t confidently – and SAFELY- perform a movement without weight, there is no way you should be adding additional load. The same applies to all other body weight and barbell movements! 5. Not every workout is going to be your best workout. This can be the hardest pill to swallow for a lot of people. Most days, you’ll come into the gym and be ready to crush the workout. But other times, you’ll be tired/sore/stressed out, and it may not be the day for you to PR your front squat or crush that Tabata. The good news? It happens to everyone. Regardless of how long you’ve been coming to the gym, some days just won’t be your best. As long as you show up and give your best effort, you’ll win the day. 6. That consistency is more important than intensity to start. When we’re building healthy habits, the most important thing to focus on at first is just that: making them habits! When we create habits, consistency is king. Find consistency in your attendance, movement (quality over quantity!!), and eating. Before you know it, you’ll be ready to up the intensity, fine tune the minor details, and be even more of a total bad ass.
