HBD Elle!

Elle has been with FCF since she was part of the January FOUNDATIONS crew.

She recently left us this awesome review on Yelp!
MY TIME SPENT HERE IS THE BEST PART OF MY DAY. To be honest, I was one of those girls who was increasingly hesitant to join CrossFit. I was perfectly content with my own little routine at the gym and I loathed the so-called cult aspect. But after being yanked to numerous competitions by my boyfriend and constantly hearing some of my best girlfriends making tremendous gains in their strength, I came to find that it offered so much more. 
I've worked out at various boxes and Foundation CrossFit far exceeds each one in terms of instruction, knowledge, and passion. All of the trainers are equal in the direction and motivation they provide to their athletes. This is especially important to someone like me who is more often than not intimidated by heavy weights, ropes, and high bars. But because of Foundation's persistent encouragement I am constantly finding myself performing movements I never thought I could. And this support and encouragement extends and is multiplied by each athlete that shares the gym. Their community is incredibly welcoming and will be cheering for you whether you're first or last to finish the WOD. 
I love the high standards at Foundation. Their programming makes sense and is effective, their facility is clean, they start and end on time, and their training and feedback is consistent. A big emphasis on documenting your workouts, which I've found to be an incredible measure and reference of progress. I always feel like I'm being made to understand the proper movement standards and I appreciate that the trainers will not just call you out on your form but offer suggestions on how to improve or scale your workout and/or push you to the next level. As a perfectionist I'm always looking for ways in which I can attain and push for high standards and goals through my job, personal life, etc. Because of Foundation I can do the same through my workouts as well. 
Foundation offers everything that makes a great CrossFit gym: experience, knowledge, non-judgement, patience, personality, and pure awesomeness! You will amplify your involvement in your own health and fitness when you join this gym and feel lucky to be moving and sweating among great trainers and people alike!
Thanks Elle and happy bornday!
