I was fortunate to find 2311 when I moved to Waynesville! My biggest struggle(s) were/are mobility in my squat and front rack position.  Prior to finding weightlifting/strength training, I really struggled to get my body composition to a place where I felt good. I’ve been training Olympic and powerlifting movements for the last year and […]

Before finding SpinalFit at CrossFit 2311 / Effort Effect I really struggled with my stamina.  And I was frustrated not having the energy to do the things that I needed / wanted to do.  This made me very unhappy and frustrated.  I had very little energy and my self esteem suffered as well.  SpinalFit has […]

One of my biggest struggles was finding the motivation to actually go to the gym. I really don’t like going to the gym alone, and all the massive guys really intimidate me. At CrossFit 2311, everyone was so nice and I didn’t feel intimidated! One of my biggest frustrations was being unsatisfied with how my […]

Before finding CrossFit 2311, we had recently moved to the area, I’d just had my second child, and I was at a loss for what to do physically. I was bored with the gym and finding it hard to motivate myself to 1) just make it there and 2) to have to plan my workout […]

Before joining CrossFit 2311, I struggled often with trying to push myself too much to do Rx weights and movements.  I couldn’t accept that things take time for some bodies to learn.  I have worked out with CrossFit for over 5 years now and stressed thinking I had peaked. The coaches at CrossFit 2311 helped […]

I came to CrossFit 2311 because I just wanted to feel better and lose a little weight. After I finished retired from the Navy all I did was walk, and roam around the rec center avoiding most of what looked like hard work! My first impression of CrossFit 2311 was that it was very intimidating, […]

I found CrossFit 2311 in June of 2013. I was always into some sort of fitness such as triathlons, competitive swimming, high school basketball and recreational weightlifting. I heard that a CrossFit gym was going to open in the area and figured I would give it a shot. I jumped into it the very first […]

I was interested in CrossFit because I wanted to get back to lifting weights more seriously and training more like an athlete than what I had been doing. I thought the structure and atmosphere of CrossFit would help me get back to this. Before joining CrossFit 2311 I worked out at the fitness center doing […]

I had lost the motivation I once had to workout. I wasn’t looking forward to going to the gym like I had before because it felt like I was doing the same exercise routines over and over again. I knew something had to change because I wasn’t getting stronger (because I wasn’t pushing myself) and […]

Before coming to CrossFit 2311 I used to work out in a fitness center doing basic weight lifting routines. I got too tired of doing the same movements everytime I hit the gym so Crossfit appealed to me. It is easier to stay motivated when you rarely do the same workout twice. My first impression […]
