Crossfit 870 is apart of the trim gym, yes. But just because they are connected to an actual fitness gym doesn't mean they aren't Crossfit. Crossfit isn't about where your box is or what it looks like, it's for the workouts you do, teaching them, community and friendship. Just because their website isn't as put together as natural state is doesn't mean it's not good, what place opens up 100% put together? 870 hasn't been open up that long. They are still working on everything. Also their website? You can look at the workout of the day, it's a button you click, an you can put your results, we also write our results on a board in the gym. Crossfit 870 is a very great community, everyone is friends and they really do great at helping the community grow outside of the gym. Not saying Natural state isn't good because they are awesome but 870 is not bad at all. Crossfit 870 and natural state's trainers all had to go to the SAME certification and they all know the same. Both gyms are great and they BOTH have the sense of what Crossfit truly is.I have been to both Crossfit Boxes in Jonesboro. I have been doing Crossfit in my garage for over a year. I can definitely say that the guys at Crossfit Natural State are legit. These guys know what they are talking about and are there to change people's life by bringing them into the Crossfit community. At Crossfit 870 it was not the same. I don't think they get the full spectrum of what Crossfit is about. It is more than just plastering a WOD up and having the Crossfit affiliation. I mean come on....when I pulled into the parking lot the first thing I saw was a sign that said Trim Gym/Crossfit 870. Any true Crossfitter would laugh at this globo-gym affiliation. Don't get me wrong... the instructors at CF 870 where nice but they were not near the level of the instrucotrs at Crossfit Natural State. Also, where is CF 870's website...how do I look at the upcoming WOD.....where do I post my results....how do i get involved in the community outside of the Box...come on guys really. Get with Crossfit or drop the affiliation and let the MEN at Natural State lead the way. Just my opinion which is worth as much as the next guys, but if you want to Crossfit and be part of a real community then go to Crossfit Natural State.
People can have their own opinion but coming from a Crossfit trainer and someone who has seen gyms all over the country Crossfit870 is in the same level as all the other gyms in the country.
