What brought you to CrossFit- I originally started coming to our Box because a friend wanted me to go with them as support.. :) She had never done any sort of lifting before, and I did have some experience with lifting, but wanted to see what all the hype was about. I was doing the same ole, same ole gym routine and wasn't getting the results I wanted (mainly because I was SOOO unmotivated and I could talk myself out of doing what I needed to

1. What bought you to CrossFit 2311? Friends elsewhere talking about how great Crossfit is. Finally after two years of not exercising, made a commitment to myself to get back in shape. So decided to try Crossfit. I knew Sage at the time (April 2014) and he encouraged me to come to Crossfit 2311. And I am SO thankful for that! 2. What was your first impression? How has that changed? First impression was this is EXACTLY what I am looking for

After some major convincing, another member, Carlyle Schomberg got me to come to my first On Ramp. As a former student athlete, I heard my strength coaches voice their negative opinions about CrossFit for 4 years, not to mention the publicized injuries from the workouts. Needless to say I was extremely hesitant. Thank goodness Carlyle was persuasive. My first impression was basically love at first sight. The majority of the movements were alr

I had previously lost about 70+ pounds through changes in diet and I wanted to change my focus to strength and agility training. I really was drawn to CrossFit because of the variety of workouts and the opportunity of having coaching. My first impression was that you probably should already be in good shape before walking through door, but that went away immediately after starting OnRamp. All exercises are able to be modified as you start ou

Keisha Messer


I came to CrossFit because my aunt and uncle were doing it and it sounded like a cool idea. When I walked through the door for the first time I was about to walk right back out. The thoughts going through my head ranged from "What in the crap are these people doing" to "Okay I'll never be able to do this". I was very intimidated to say the least. As time went on I became less and less intimidated and more and more comfortable. I realized th

After redeploying from Afghanistan in February 2014 I was in Columbus GA. I had to struggle through a lot of issues ranging from PTSD to physical problems. I was not doing well;  I was always depressed or not feeling well. I figured it was the environment I was in so I decided to move to Lake Junaluska, NC and help my grandmother.  Perhaps a change of environment would help me cope with my own issues. I’ve always been a huge Cross

I came to CrossFit at the suggestion of my friend Rebecca Mashburn. I was tired all the time and just had no desire or energy to do anything except work and go home. After several weeks of hearing how much Rebecca loved it, and noticing how her physique was changing, I decided to give CrossFit a try.My first impression was that I may not be able to do it! At the same time, I was surprised at the friendliness and support of the tribe and the coach

Shannon Revelia


What brought you to CrossFit? I realized I was losing muscle mass and getting weaker just with age. My kids were getting bigger and heavier and I wanted to get stronger and more active so that I could keep up with them the next ten years. What was your first impression? How has that changed? The first class SHOCKED me. We did tabata air squats and I could not go down steps without sitting for three days afterwards. It quickly reaffirmed

Carol Peterson


1. What brought you to CrossFit? The encouragement of my oldest child and the curiosity and desire to see if I could make changes to my body by challenging myself are what brought me to CrossFit2311.   2. What was your first impression and how has that changed? During OnRamp, I was amazed at the members who were participating in the “real” WOD, and truly wondered if I would be able to do enough during a WOD to make(see) a dif
