Just want to thank Ryan Atkins of Crossfit Racine and Kelly Moore for the great Crossfit clinic they lead in Bloomington, MN last week. They did a GREAT job explaining many Crossfit fundamentals including program design, scaling intensity, progressive skill development, and TONS of tips for developing kippers, HSPUs, OHS, etc. Tabata Squats and Mike Burgener's Warmup added more to the fun!

Anyone interested in improving their Crossfit numbers and skills will benefit from working with either of these fine athletes!

"In the 12 months I participated in CrossFit, I lost 14% body fat and 7 pounds. I'm very thankful to you and your trainers for taking the time to "try" and show me how to properly perform the movements. I've lifted weights for years and experienced nothing like the benefits I received from CrossFit. Additionally, I'd like to thank you and everyone else for the kindness you showed my son, Evan, when he came with me to work out. He absolutely loved being in the gym and hanging out while I suffered through the workouts."

"Ryan is one of the most knowledgeable coaches I've ever met."

" I just wanted to thank Ryan, his team and my training partners for all their help in pushing my conditioning to new heights. As an avid Muay Thai practitioner, I was looking for an all-encompassing way to supplement my strength and conditioning training and CrossFit Milwaukee did not disappoint. In the 10 months I spent training with CrossFit Milwaukee, I increased my CrossFit Total by over 100 lbs and set new personal record on squats, deadlifts and the press. Alex’s Strength and Skills class was especially helpful in developing my explosiveness and core strength. At 36 years old I am in the best shape of my life. The camaraderie and fun, learning-oriented, supportive environment are top-notch and welcoming of all. Thanks again Ryan for creating such a wonderful place to train. "

I just had a body composition analysis using the InBody230. Watching the 24-year-old assessor's eyeballs pop out of his head after skimming my results, PRICELESS!!! First thing out of his mouth: "What do you do?!?!?!" Me, with a glowing smile: "I Crossfit... and play football."
I have 25.6 pounds of body fat, which equates to 14% body fat on my 181.7 pound frame. My limbs are symmetrical in lean mass. And my resting Metabolic Rate is 1900 kcal. Love to see proof in numbers!!!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, thanks to Ryan Atkins from Crossfit Milwaukee, and Kevin Hughes & CrossFit Kasten at CrossFit Ftf along with ALL the coaches and members at BOTH Crossfits for their love, encouragement, and support!

"Alex has done an awesome job in his Strength and Skills Class!!! I Really liked working with him! Great Coach. Highly recommend his class! I am extremely satisfied with the progress I made. My press is up 25 pounds and my deadlift jumped by 20 pounds too!" - Jeff W.

"Thank You CrossFit Milwaukee for pushing me beyond limits I never imagined I could go! All that hard work I've lost 15.4 pounds in a month and am finally able to run a mile and over without stopping!"

"In one and a half years my relationship with CrossFit and understanding of my physical capabilities have all undergone an overwhelming transformation.

My physical history is not the focus of this testimonial, but is somewhat relevant. I was that fat kid. The one who's metabolism slowed down right around college when the beer drinking was at it's peak. I was 315 pounds when I graduated in 2004. Fast forward a few years and with a relatively proper diet and 2+ hours of cardio a day I got myself down to 180 pounds. I was the thinnest and "fittest" I had ever been, but I still didn't feel healthy. A good friend introduced CrossFit to me unintentionally through photos on Facebook. I watched his body, attitude, health and outlook on life transform in just one year of the program.

Immediately I found Ryan and his team at CrossFit Milwaukee, and with much trepidation I purchased my On-Ramp package in January of 2011. I have never looked back. CrossFit as a fitness program just works & I personally don't believe that you can argue against it. Not only does one have to be dedicated to the program, but it is essential to have a team of trainers who understand your individual needs, and dedicate themselves to success. I have been to a total of seven different CrossFit locations in the last year as I have traveled and not a single one of them can even compare to the caliber of Ryan's program and staff.

There's a brilliance to Ryan's programming that many locations don't implement or even comprehend. It can't just be about the daily WOD. Strength training, endurance, mobility and so many other factors are at the core of a well rounded fitness program. CrossFit Milwaukee incorporates these into your visit every day, though specialized pre-WOD and post-WOD movements and stretching. Many specialized classes are offered weekly, and without hesitation any of the staff members are willing to spend the time with you on individual issues. It's a combination of knowledge, passion, and commitment from everyone that causes so much improvement and success to walk though those doors every day.

The most important experience I have taken away from my time at CrossFit Milwaukee is the fact that the typical "client and trainer" relationship never really exists in the gym. Each trainer truly cares, and gets to know each member personally. These are not my trainers, they are my friends, my peers and my mentors. They are the people that I have come to appreciate and respect and motivate me to become the best I can be. I have forged friendships in those doors that are unbreakable, because in the end each person I have met though CrossFit Milwaukee has ultimately helped me to become happiest and healthiest I have ever been.

Thank you to Ryan, Alex, Murph, Doreen, all the other trainers and the many amazing friends I have made over the last 18 months, you have all changed me forever."

I ended up losing about 15-20 pounds during OnRamp. I lost about 1.5 inches around my waist, gained about 1/2 inch in my arms, lost a little bit in my chest (must have had some extra fat there too), and my thighs gained a little bit. In the couple of weeks of regular classes, I have seen slight gains in arms, chest, and thighs. My waist stayed the same but I did mix in more carbs and some unhealthy treats that I purposely avoided during OnRamp.

The trainers at Crossfit-Milwaukee are amazing. I have been working through a lower back issue for some time and they are amazing at modifying workouts so that I can still get in there 3-4 times a week and do an intense, hard workout without the fear that I am doing moves that would aggravate my back while also providing me detailed exercises and stretches to do outside of class to work on improving and fixing my back issue as well. Great people and great knowledge!
