It all started in the back of a pick-up truck! In college, at Western Michigan University, I stumbled upon this CrossFit thing and started doing what I could at the University Rec Center. I soon found out that explosive movements were frowned upon and it was a headache trying to use more than one piece of equipment at a time in the standard 'Globo Gym' setting. So I started aquiring my own equipment! The only problem was that I lived on the 3rd floor of my apartment building and it became quite the task carrying up and down all of the equipment needed for myself and the small following of college buddies that began to grow. So I purchased a tonneau cover for my truck and started using the back end as a mobile garage to store all of the heavy, odd shaped equipment that we could fit. So almost everyday of the summer the guys would get together and unload all the equipment, write up a WOD (workout of the day), and get to work on the apartment complex basketball courts and/or courtyard lawn. The reward for finishing our brutal workouts was a dip in the adjacent pool and then we would carry on with whatever college kid shenanigans were on the gamut for that day. At the time I was finishing up college classes and didn't know exactly where my degree in exercise science was leading me.
Fast Forward about a year, I moved home after finishing college and sold my truck that housed all of the exercise equipment in order to start Muskegon CrossFit in a very grass-roots fashion. With the support of our members we have been able to grow from that 24 square foot truck bed into our current 5,000 square foot facility that has all of the amenities to reach your fitness goals! The passion for fitness amongst our coaching staff is as strong as it was working out of the back of the truck!
Come check us out and see if we are the right place for you and your goals to be achieved!
