I joined CFD after finishing a season of Gaelic football in August 2020 with the mindset of keeping fit in the off season. Little did I know. CFD is now an integral part of my day to day living. I tore my posterior cruciate ligament playing soccer in 2017 when my daughter was 4 weeks old, and I had little to no mobility. This has now changed, and I owe it to CFD & the great coaches. As well as this I have gained confidence in my own ability mentally and physically. For anyone who is on the fence about joining, take the leap, it is the best environment with great coaches and great members. You will not regret it!

I joined CrossFit Derry in 2018, I had never really been into gyms or exercise, but at 54, I decided I wanted to do something for myself and my health. I had heard about CrossFit Derry and after a very long time thinking about it I finally took the plunge and joined up, I was so nervous at the thought of it, it wasn’t easy to walk through those doors for the first time but it has by far been one the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I was instantly put at ease and made feel very welcome, the Coaches are second to none, always helping, taking time to explain and demonstrate and pushing you to do that little bit more for you, the community is like no other, everyone is so friendly, supporting and encouraging one another. I love the variety of the classes, from strength, stretching, endurance and gymnastics. I was definitely hooked. I have made so many friends for life and have never been fitter, healthier or in better shape. I often hear people say “ I couldn’t join CrossFit because I am not fit enough “ , was I fit absolutely NO , my only regret is that I didn’t join Crossfit a lot sooner If your reading this and thinking about joining, can I really encourage you to just do it .. do it for you and your health.

CrossFit Derry – what a place, what a community – don’t know why I didn’t discover this little gem sooner! What I love is that CrossFit has something for everyone – I love how humble and supportive everyone is, how varied the workouts are and how people across different generations and abilities interact and there’s a real team spirit! Coaches challenge everyone in a healthy, supportive way to be their best – each with their own unique style – it’s impossible to pick a favourite!! I’m lifting weights, feeling stronger, much more toned and having fun and I’m doing things I could never have imagined possible. CrossFit Derry has become a lifestyle for me, and I’d encourage everyone to give it a go
