A 2018 health event revealed some poor blood test results. That event and some pals (CFE members) encouraged me to ‘do something’. Fast forward 6 mths and here I am at CFE a proud member of the 5am crew. I love most of it. Except burpees - they’re the devils work. =)
As a college athlete, players struggle to find a gym where they can train at a high level in the offseason. Tyler opened the door for us college athletes and allowed us to train what we needed to train as well as participate is his daily CrossFit classes.
Being only 2 weeks in, I never thought I would be able to complete full CrossFit workouts as well as I can.
I joined CrossFit because I wanted to maintain my weight as well as increase my overall muscle tone before my wedding in May 2019. After almost 4 months myself and others can already see a difference! It is rare to find the level of camaraderie you get at CrossFit Ephrata!
My main focus was to maintain my weight as well as gain more muscle tone and I can already see a difference after almost 4 months.
I came into the gym for the first time and was greeted with a friendly smile and met Tyler. Tyler got me set up with a workout program for me and a daily calorie count to help me hit my goals. I’ve lost 10 lbs in my first 2 weeks!
I am a stronger and happier person. Joining Crossfit Ephrata was one of the best decisions I made. I love the community and the way everyone supports and pushes each other. Even though I am a long way from where I want to be I am so happy with the gains in my strength and looks.
I am stronger & fitter than I've ever been (at 36 yrs old!), and I have become part of an amazing community of coaches and athletes who encourage & inspire me daily. Beyond just "losing weight" I've learned what it means to be healthy & to provide a positive example for my kids.
The classes at Crossfit Ephrata prepared me to be successful in the sport of Crossfit. Now a few years later the same classes keep me fit so I can enjoy life outside the gym.
Love the team atmosphere with the coaches and team members. You support your team, they support you. Plus, the physical benefits of the CrossFit approach to gym exercise are undeniable.
I feel that I have reached a great relation with the coaches and especially feel as though Josh as really opened up with me for when I started.
After I had my children I lost my confidence, since joining I am gaining that back! Each day I feel stronger, healthier and Happier! My family keeps telling me they see a difference not only physically, but mentally as well.
I started doing CrossFit to improve my golf game. I am already hitting the ball farther, and can’t wait to see my hard work pay off on the course. It’s definitely keeping me strong in my off season.
Myself, my husband and 2 daughters are able to workout together. Watching my daughters building outer strength as well as inner strength has been amazing. It’s definitely helping them to be strong, confident, hardworking girls!
Even though I was a member at another box for a year and a half before joining CFE, I did my first box jump and first rope climb within the first 6 months at the encouragement of the wonderful coaches!
Tyler is a great coach! Over the past five years I have learned to trust him with my fitness. He will meet anyone at their fitness level and coach and encourage them to the next level of health. He is also a good businessman who manages the gym well and creates a great community.
Since becoming a member at CFE in 2016, I feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally. I have been into a fitness oriented lifestyle for many years but was never able to put all the pieces together. Now I have tools to make myself better.
I initially joined Ephrata CrossFit to get in shape for a Spartan trifecta, planning to cancel the membership after a few months. However, after seeing the physical changes in myself and enjoying the camaraderie of the members and staff, I couldn't quit.
I am much more stronger and more confident on my daily life. It also helped me having strong willpower to accomplished many things.
I am not from around here so my friends live a good distance away. I never thought I’d make so many good friends at a gym. The coaches and the members make this my happy place. The workouts are just a bonus.
I’m stronger, faster and fitter in my 40’s than when I was younger. After being a runner for 10 years, I placed in my age group for the first time in not one, but two, 10K races this fall.
As someone who has struggled with body image issues since early high school, CrossFit Ephrata has made me feel empowered, strong, and confident. The community is uplifting and the environment is one that pushes you to be the best version of yourself every single day.
I am stronger mentally and physically. I find I have increased strength and more confidence in the gym and out. I have been able to improve nutrition and strength with personal training and group classes.
CrossFit Ephrata has pushed me out of my comfort zone! Now, with the coaches encouragement, I'm lifting weights I could only dream of after watching other women lift. My self-confidence, especially as a woman, has never been better! I leave feeling mentally and physically strong.
When I started CrossFit I was already a “good” athlete but had lots of untapped potential. Through CrossFit Ephrata I have doubled my maxes and set/crushed higher standards for myself.
I love the community that has been built at CFE, it’s such a great group of members and coaches! To me that’s what CrossFit is about, community!
The great thing about CFE and CrossFit generally is that once you reach a level or tackle a goal, you always have another one to work on. I personally try to perform each skill set that CrossFit demands. Not every day is perfect, but I constantly work towards improvement.
Any other gym does not give you such personal attention while you were in a group setting. The group classes are great for motivation and fun then you also have your trainer right there with you whenever you need him or her. I love that about our gym.
I am stronger mentally and physically, but for me it is the mental aspect that keeps me coming back for more more than the physical changes. It brings peace into my soul after I have completed my workout
Since I have started crossfit I have grown stronger to keep up with my kids, more confident over all, I have made new friends ( follow crosfitters & coaches) and have a better mentality. It definitely became part of my life quickly.
I’ve gotten in better shape and I feel more confident now because I feel better and think I look better. Having not seen my Dr in a couple years they commented on how much stronger my heart is because my blood pressure was lower than it ever was!
Since joining Crossfit Ephrata, I’m an all around happier person, more confident in everything in and out of the gym, and in one of the best shapes I’ve been in. The coaches and my fellow athletes are some of the best around!
I have gain strength where I've been stuck at for awhile. I am seeing improvement in my fitness since I started about 7months ago.
I have made friends with people who have become like family. I see them on weekends and holidays, I celebrate their life achievements (birthdays, weddings etc) and I can count on them to push me to be a better version of myself. I would never get that at planet fitness.
I love coming to the gym to be coached by awesome and well educated trainers plus the friendships that I have required over the years.
Because I lack self motivation, I depend on my coaches to keep me moving forward. I am getting stronger and really enjoy the workouts.
I am confident in our coaches to give me the support I need.... be it to encourage me during a workout or to make adjustments in my form.
Only one thing? Ive been here 2 years. Since that first day I have made many new friends that keep me coming back, suceeded at muscle-ups and double-unders, got more jacked (or so my wife says), eat waaaay healthier, and even beat coach Josh at a workout (he did do more weight)
I can see how I have changed through the workouts! With increasing weights and getting compliments from people I know! Also working out with a great group of people who push me daily!
I've been lifting for over 20 years and have been a member of who knows how many gyms, the connection with the Coaches at CFE is something special. The way that you're welcomed by everybody, and that they actually care about your goals is something I haven't seen elsewhere.
Tyler is extremely patient and knowledgeable. He has given both me and my son the confidence to do something we never thought possible.
I am stronger mentally and physically. When I started I could not even do one sit up and now I can deadlift 245 lb
There are several things that draw me to Love CFE. I've worked out at many other CF gyms and I've yet to find the as what I've found at CFE. There is a strong sense of community, comradery, unity and equality amongst the CFE culture. It makes me a better person not just stronger.

I may be known best as Coach Matt’s sister and have a personal connection with him, but I feel that each coach has reached out and made a personal connection in some way. They are a group of extremely supportive and positive people who live and breath what you represent.
I've lost weight, I'm much stronger, and most importantly I just feel better mentally and physically. The gains I've made in the gym noticeably improved aspects of my day to day life with things as simple as carrying groceries or keeping up with my toddler!
