I was recovering from a fractured ankle after a Motocross accident and as I was recovering I found myself bored of my regular gym routine. I had been doing yoga, boxing, and palates, and I felt I wanted to try something new. I had heard Strength Rx and CrossFit in general was for crazy people […]

I was looking to change up my work out routine and do something new that would really challenge me. So I decided to give StrengthRx a try. I wasn’t really sure what to expect at first, but I guess what really surprised me was the wide variety of people who go to CrossFit, and how […]

I used to train at a gym that had CrossFit type workouts, but wasn’t technically a CrossFit affiliate. Since I live by StrengthRx I figured I would give it a try. My first impression was, “Holy shit this is way harder” and “I hope I don’t die during this WOD!” Since then it really hasn’t […]

I remember walking in and immediately feeling welcomed, which was not the case with the other LA boxes I visited. Despite the fact I had been doing CrossFit for […]

It all started when my doctor told me I was pre-diabetic. Being a pre-diabetic at such early age, I knew I had to change my lifestyle and had to do it NOW! Immediately after, I signed up at LA Fitness, took couple personal training classes but never felt the connection or the sense of accomplishment. […]

I used to work a couple blocks down on Melrose and driving home in traffic I would look over and see these people working out in SRX and I thought to myself I need to be in there. I was around CrossFit for a year before trying it out and even that didn’t prepare me […]

I originally  came to Strength RX temporarily to up my game and build more strength for my very competitive sport of Roller Derby. I had been doing CrossFit with my team before practices, but I needed more. Little did I know that belonging to a gym full of wonderful and encouraging people who are all […]
