Crossfit Choice Testimonials

Crossfit Choice RW

I moved to Portsmouth at the start of the year and spent a lot of time looking into gyms… I wanted somewhere with;
– professional coaching
– friendly approachable coaches
– structured programming for all abilities
– modern equipment
– healthy competition
– varied classes
– depth of knowledge and understanding of sports injuries and rehabilitation
– friendly environment
– no judgement
– no big egos

CrossFit Choice has ticked all of the above!

If you’re looking for a gym but apprehensive for any reason at all, I can honestly say CrossFit Choice will instantly make you feel welcome, be genuinely interested in your goals and will get you where you want to be!

Highly Recommend! *****

Crossfit Choice HT

I have been training at CrossFit Choice for over 9 months and highly recommend it for anyone looking to improve their health and fitness! The standard of coaching, classes and programming is exceptional and the team tailors the classes to all abilities. In my time there I have massively increased my strength, cardiovascular fitness and mobility due to the varied and carefully crafted classes.

Outside of the gym, there is a close knit, social community who look out for each other and make training even more fun.

Crossfit Choice Rhian

We are very fortunate to have such an incredible facility in Portsmouth! The combination of knowledgeable coaches, a well-equipped gym and conscientious programming has helped me make improvements across all aspects of my training.

The friendly fun environment Paul, Karl and Luke create in the classes makes going to the gym enjoyable (even if there is burpees!)

Every class is full of like-minded people, no one takes themselves seriously and everyone is there with the same purpose. All egos are left at the door and we put in the work! I regularly attend the 6am classes and they always set me up for the day. I believe If you do something challenging and hard first thing in the morning then you feel ready for whatever the day may throw at you.

Thank you Karl, Paul, Luke and members for building the foundations towards a confident, happy and healthy lifestyle.

From the offset, CrossFit Choice have provided me (mobility issues) with continued support via programming, drop-in classes, excellent equipment and a very much inclusive environment to get me where I wanted to be, both physically and mentally. If you’re reading this and are apprehensive about getting involved, like I was….don’t be, just go for it, you’ll thank yourself in a week/month/year later.

Crossfit Choice CC

I was new to CrossFit, but once knowing a few members I started to feel welcomed and a part of their ‘family’. Thank you to Karl & Paul for helping me to be the happiest, healthiest and fittest version of myself – I have met some of the most amazing people, made so many memories and feel so positive and ready to attack everything that life is going to throw at me!

Crossfit Choice Dan Brumwell

Having trained alone at numerous commercial gyms, and after being a bespoke client of Paul’s during lockdown, I joined CrossFit Choice when the gyms reopened. Paul and Karl are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in their fields and have provided me with numerous tweaks to improve my form/engine and overall accountability. The group PT classes keep me honest and everyone works towards their own goals. The structured training cycles have helped me to achieve my goal of a sub 4:30 marathon, something out of reach to me previously. Keep up the great work guys!

Crossfit Choice DA

**THERE IS NO BETTER GYM**
After trying various other gyms in the region I finally settled on this one. Friendly, focused and functional. Led by coaches who have a depth of experience and knowledge to match my needs. If it be a personal call or a group discussion my progress is always monitored. I have never felt so fit and confident in myself. I now move well, often and with purpose.

Crossfit Choice DB

I joined CrossFit Choice exactly 1 year ago and if you had told me then the things i will do and have done I probably would have laughed and said not a chance! My confidence has grown, my mindset has changed and my overall outlook is much more positive. The coaches make you feel comfortable whilst pushing you to your absolute limit, the encouragement from them and the community they have created is reason enough to keep going back! I feel totally looked after and monitored each session and am totally called out to step outside of my comfort zone! Thanks to Paul and Karl for the continuous encouragement and support!

Crossfit Choice JP

I have trained at various gyms & CrossFit boxes over the years but CrossFit Choice has been the best of the bunch. The coaches are always enthusiastic & thorough in their teaching & encouragement throughout each class. They are approachable & offer advice all the time whether it be fitness or nutrition. The equipment in the gym is in excellent condition with additional space for accessory work & a lounge & kitchen for chilling before/after class.

I have never been stronger & my engine is improving all the time. I have been using a bespoke programme for a few months now & I can really tell the difference. Couldn’t recommend it enough.

Amazing!! Joined the gym and the guys around 4 weeks ago and am absolutely loving it! Extremely well equipped, super friendly team and the coaches are exceptional. Felt at home straight away and now feel part of the team. The results I’m seeing and feeling already are great and I’m now hooked! Would recommend this place to anyone! 10/10

Crossfit Choice Nicola Metherell

I first started training with CrossFit Choice online during lockdown before joining them in person once they opened. It has been by far the best gym experience I’ve had. Their coaching expertise is superb; I have made so much progress across all aspects of my training but my favourite thing has to be the community Karl and Paul have built. I’ve made friends for life and I can’t thank the coaches enough for how much they’ve improved my confidence.

Crossfit Choice Jen Croft

CFC is by far the best CrossFit box I’ve been to. I’ve been lucky enough to experience several around the world. The level of coaching is outstanding, the team are not only exceptionally qualified, they are also super supportive and welcoming. I was super anxious when I joined and lacking in confidence, the team have empowered me to grow both in and out of the gym. The community vibe adds to the experience truly making you feel at home the minute you step through the door. No matter what your experience or level of fitness this is a lifestyle choice worth investing in. Thank you, Team CrossFit Choice.

Janine Clarke Fortitude South Coast

I joined CrossFit Choice in August 2020 on bespoke programming and I haven’t looked back since! Paul is down to earth and the best at what he does. I’ve seen huge results since working with CrossFit Choice and as a busy Mum, I love the fact that my workouts are one thing I do not have to organise.

As a coach myself you have an expectation that your athlete’s will listen and respond to the programme you are providing them. It’s exactly the same as an athlete with CrossFit Choice, they listen to your needs, respond to any new issues that arise and then adapt and overcome.

The team are great, the programmes are great and I cannot wait to see more progress than I have already made as a result of working with them.

Brett Lilley Testimonial Fortitude South Coast

I have been working with Karl for just over 6 months now. I have always wanted to be able to unlock my full potential in CrossFit and become a competitor in the Sport of Fitness. Previously I had been taking part in local CrossFit Gym Classes, but felt like I needed something specific to my needs and highlight my own weaknesses. As Karl said to me when we first spoke “Your only as good as your weakest movement” – this was something that has stuck with me from the beginning and motivated me to become better. Through the use of their online platform, I have always got my coach in my pocket to keep me on track.

Pete Oswald Testimonial Fortitude South Coast

Top class programming from two experienced coaches. I’ve been with CrossFit Choice for 3 months following a Bespoke Sport Training plan, in the short time I have seen huge improvements in my strength, speed and power. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Cathy Dickinson Testimonial Fortitude South Coast

I’ve trained heavily in a variant of sports in the last 40 years. I’ve lifted heavy loads as a nurse and at one point in my life I was a Fitness Instructor where I completed a university sports injury course, which enabled me to oversee and deal with injuries in my own martial arts club.
Since training with Karl and CrossFit Choice I am highly impressed by his knowledge, guidance and professionalism in his one to one training approach. Due to auto immune issues and rotator cuff injuries I had lost my love for training and more or less gave up on it. However, since working with CrossFit Choice I am no longer in pain, I’m stronger and more flexible than I ever have been. I think I am fitter than I ever have been and I’m very excited about entering the CrossFit Open.
