I am honored to be chosen as the May athlete of the month. I’ve been a member at BCF for about 3 and a half years now. Before coming to BCF, I did HIIT workouts utilizing bodyweight, suspension training, and kettlebells, which provided a solid base, but I started wanting to do something different. At […]
First off, what an honor it is to be chosen by my favorite community as April athlete of the month! I joined Beaverton CrossFit in December 2014, just six months after my first CrossFit class. I’d tried several different boxes during that initial six months in an attempt to find the best in the area, […]
Where were you in your fitness journey before BCF and where are you now? I’ve been doing CF type workouts on my own sporadically for the past 5 years. I would use the CF main page wods or just make up my own workouts. Since finishing my college swimming career, it was tough staying motivated […]

Where were you in your fitness journey before BCF and where are you now? Jackson: Before I started CrossFit, my way of working out was through basketball practices 2 or 3 times a week. Now I’m sticking to CrossFit and trying to go 3-4 times a week. I definitely feel like I’m gaining more from CrossFit […]

Where were you in your fitness journey before BCF and where are you now? When I joined BCF, I had just moved to Portland, and had taken a few months off from CrossFit. Lucky for me, Drew was a coach at my old gym in Eugene so I had an easy decision to come check […]
I did Kendo and boxing for 2 years each in my college but I’ve always been looking for something well-balanced and can boost my general health/fitness. At a box in Florida in ’08 I was introduced to the world of CrossFit which was the perfect fit to my needs. At ’10 after the graduate school, I moved […]

I came to BCF in September of 2013 with my then-boyfriend, now-fiancé (and maybe husband by the time this goes out) Sam. We both played sports in college and were feeling uninspired when it came to fitness. We were on the hunt for something new when Sam found the Groupon for BCF. I immediately loved […]

My goal has always been to slim down. I have always been heavy even when extremely active. I came back to Oregon last May after working the oilfield and ended up helping my parents around the property. My goals were swiftly thrown on the back burner due to that. In Pennsylvania I had gone from […]
