Testimonials

Troy McMoore

This is a Testimonial from one of our original athletes at CrossFit 38 Degrees North Troy McMoore. As you will see from the before and after pictures, Troy went through some amazing physical changes. More important then these physical changes are the Cholesterol, Triglyceride, HDL, and Low density lipoprotein reading that Troy drastically improved on from CrossFitting 5 days a week and following a Paleo lifestyle 85% of the time. Here is what Troy had to say:
Troy “I have been going to crossfit 38 North since January of 2012. What I really enjoy the most about 38 North (besides getting in the best shape of my life) Is the people who make up this community. I have made bonds and friends that will last a lifetime. We not only workout and encourage each other to do our best, we also do things together as a community (Tough Mudder, Chili cook offs, birthdays,BBQ, bowling). 38 North changed my life.”

“6 months ago today, I began this amazing journey at CrossFit 38 Degrees North.  It changed my life, and I also truly believe it saved my life.  Prior to this, I was overweight, addicted to pain killer medication, and smoking up to two packs of cigarettes per day.  In 6 short months, I am doing things I never thought would be possible.  I am incredibly thankful for my wonderful coaches and the amazing community at 38 Degrees North.   AnnaI am 5’2″, and began CrossFit at 162 pounds, and today I am 135 pounds.  Most importantly, I am stronger, faster, and healthier than I ever have been in my life.”

Lucy Randle – Summer 2013

38 North was very lucky to have Lucy Randle, A CrossFit Coach from Australia, become part of our community for 2 months this summer.  Lucy sent over this message after she left to go back home.  We will miss you Lucy.

Lucy Randle “As a CrossFit athlete and keen adventurer, I always know that no matter where I am in this well traveled world I can find a place I can call home. A local CrossFit box to get my daily fix of strength and conditioning, immerse myself within the sport and be a part of an incredible community of athletes and amateurs alike. As a traveler you come and go and meet friends along the way. I was fortunate enough to spend some of my time in Petaluma, California – where I was truly privileged and blessed to train at the finest box in the valley, CF38N.

Owned and operated by a man of many talents, Mike Ward, and passionately supported by a small, yet professional and enthusiastic team, Mike offered a life changing few months of coaching, exceptional training facilities and last but not least a family of incredible individuals who not only displayed text book technique but the kindest of hearts and the biggest of smiles!!Having spent alot of time in different boxes, training facilities and an array of coaching styles, I am proud to say that CF38N exceeded all expectations, and provides their clients with world class facilities and coaching, not to mention a good dusting of humor and attractive faces!

As a CrossFit coach and retired weightlifter it is truly refreshing to see such quality in other coaching, which in my personal view is becoming few and far between to find in this seemingly booming industry.  It with much pleasure that I thank Mike, his coaches and community for their hospitality and constant welcomeness and a special thank you to Coach  Krista Lee Smith who reminded me what training and life is all about, a woman who exudes positivity and will do exceptionally well in this sport!”

Mike Bebe – 38 North Athlete

Athlete Mike Beebe talks about his experience with CrossFit and the community of 38 North.

“As long as I can remember I have been over weight and I’ve battled it my entire life. In my early 20′s I was able to lose a huge amount of weight doing the Atkins diet coupled with chronic cardio. But with all the fat I lost I also lost a lot of muscle. I was a skinny fat guy….you all know what I mean. Flash forward to 2011, I was happily married and had a great career but my weight had spiked to an astounding 348 pounds. I was completely inactive,  uncomfortable in my own skin and my self-esteem was at an all time low. I decided in early 2011 that I was going to join the gym again and get back into my “fighting weight”. Well almost a year later I had only lost 10-15 pounds and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t lose the weight. It was then I decided I wanted to try CrossFit. So I researched it and researched it some more. And then I researched it some more! I think most people will agree that the thought of CrossFit is very intimidating. It took me over 8 months to finally commit to coming in.
 
MikeIf it were not for 38 North Coach Billy Petrie I would have never had the guts to try it out.  Well back in September 2012 my personal trainer at Club One (yes I was paying a ridiculous amount of money for a trainer)  who was also friends with Billy had mentioned that Billy had “drank the CrossFit cool aid” and was coaching at CF38N. Boom! I called Billy in early October 2012, came into CF38N and checked my ego at the door….And I’ve been hooked ever since!

CF38N has taught me to train hard, set goals, push through mental and physical barriers, eat healthier and enjoy an active lifestyle! I am down over 50 pounds and I am in the best physical shape of my life. I absolutely love the coaches and the CF38N community. I have a TON of goals I still want to meet and I know that being a part of the CF38N family will help me achieve them!”
