So before I visited CrossFit Local, I scoped out their website. I must say I was impressed and I knew that if they lived up to what I saw online it would be something special- and they did not disappoint! Crossfit Local, located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is just a few minutes from The University of North Carolina. When you first walk in to CF Local you see a very nice store front-type reception area with comfy-looking chairs and couches, which I’ll admit, may be confusing when you are used to the industrial look that most boxes take, but walk through the next door you find that familiar training area that you expect in a CrossFit box.
In addition to Chad and Kelly, Their right hand man and associate Jeremy assists them in handling any of their members’ needs. CrossFit Local has thirteen additional coaches providing the best possible service to their clients. Their experienced and diverse coaching team holds certifications in CrossFit, Kids, Gymnastics, Endurance, Mobility, Weightlifting, Olympic Lifting, and Goal Setting. More importantly, they are passionate about what they do and love: CrossFit. To see there amazing coaches click Here.
During my visit, I was lucky enough to be coached by Chad and was very impressed with his attention to detail and overall wealth of knowledge. You know I love lifting heavy so when I saw that the strength work for the day was split jerks, I had to smile. I don’t do as much as I probably should, working on my split jerks, so I definitely valued the coaching that Chad provided. He was able to help me make a few tweaks to my movement that really helped as the weight got heavier. When it was time for the WOD, we went outside and I was able to pair up with one of their awesome members for a partner WOD. After not getting enough sleep and being sick, I could really feel myself fading but I had an amazing partner and a great community helping me push through and finish it up.
