I have been a member of Crossfit Resurgens for over a year now, and I wanted to wait awhile before I wrote a review because everything is great in the beginning; right?
A couple things about me: I am the girl who was an overweight as a child and well into my adult life. I was not athletically inclined at all. When I went to the gym I stuck to Spin and Zumba classes, and most definitely never ventured into the weight room. I started Crossfit in late 2013, after a major change and commitment to a healthier lifestyle. Initially I started at another gym (box), but in late spring 2015 I decided I needed a change of atmosphere because I felt something was missing. I flirted with Resurgens and dropped in on a class in Winter 2014, and I was very impressed with the welcoming supportive community.
I know Crossfit seems very intimidating, and if you told me a few years back that it would be part of my regular fitness routine I would have laughed in your face. Crossfit has changed my lifestyle, and an integral part of that change is the Resurgens community. From day one I felt support and encouragement not only from Dorian and the coaches, but from my peers as well. Resurgens is not a "cookie cutter" gym as there are varying levels of ability and diversity among members. Some members compete in competitions and some do not; however, there is consistent support and camaraderie. The coaches are very knowledgeable, approachable, and most importantly they pay attention during sessions ensuring safety and proper movement execution.
My skill and ability has improved over the past year, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that I want to be at Resurgens. Instead of dreading the gym, I look forward to my time there. I always advise people that all Crossfit gyms are not created equal, and they should look for a place where they are comfortable and feel welcome. Crossfit Resurgens is a very welcoming community, with excellent programming, facilities and equipment. I am very happy here and enthusiastically recommend this box without any hesitation!

My family lives in the area, and I play soccer at a univiersity in the area. I was back home for the summer and came across this gym on livingsocial for a great deal to try, and I've now been going for the last two years.
I've played competitive soccer my whole life and never have I felt as healthy and aware of my health as I did when I began crossfit at Resurgens. Dorian's enthusiasm compounds on the great, welcoming attitude from the other coaches and members of the gym.
I used to sprain my ankle about three times a year playing soccer- one of the single most frustrating injuries. Crossfit at Resurgens has GREATLY decreased how injury prone I've become! I've now gone two seasons straight without injury and learned so much about my body and how to supplement it with a great diet and workouts at Resurgens. I could not recommend this gym enough! Even just for a drop-in. Come meet some great, motivational people!
