Testimonials

See what some of our current athletes have to say about our box. They are the heart of it all. Without our community of fearless, motivated, hard-working members, we wouldn’t be here. We wouldn’t be able to continue helping people become the best version of themselves.

Since I joined in November of 2017, CFWDM has made a world of difference in my life. I was 58, fat, lazy and on the couch every night after work. With their support, coaching and guidance, my strength is returning, the pounds are shedding and my outlook on life has vastly improved. From the Coaches to the Community, you cannot beat ’em! There’s lots of “boxes” out there… I consider myself lucky to have landed here. I am now #59strong and getting stronger!! #crossfitwdm

I am not even sure where to begin. I have always been tempted for many years to try crossfit, too scared to take the plunge knowing I would probably get addicted and would have an expensive habit. After taking a couple weeks off for an overseas vacation, I decided it was time to step outside of my “box” and try something new. I started looking online for crossfit gyms in Des Moines and just by looking online I already felt drawn to Crossfit West Des Moines. After meeting Kris and Jess for the first time, I was in awe of their enthusiasm and flexibility to make things work for me. They were just starting as the new owners of the box, but I could not tell. Things ran smoothly without any mishaps. Starting out, they helped me enormously – whether it was learning the new lingo, figuring out a good weight for my barbell, or helping me with completely new movements, they were always willing to go the extra mile to make me feel comfortable, safe and modify as needed. I can’t say enough about these two and their gym. I have truly fallen in love with both. I did get addicted and I don’t regret it for one second. I look forward to that hour of my day I get to spend with them, their gym and other members. I truly am grateful for everything they have done and would highly recommend others to come try it out. Everything can be modified to your level of activity and Kris and Jess will make sure you feel comfortable with what you are doing without making anyone feel disheartened or afraid. I feel like I found a second home and family at Crossfit WDM. I promise you won’t regret your decision to spend a day, week, month or year/s here 🙂

I’ve been working out here about 18 months. Great coaching and an awesome community. I’d recommend it to beginners or elite athletes.

Great box! Great vibe. Cool coach (Jess). Cool athletes. Cool space.
Dropped in, and they worked with me to find something that would work with my hectic travel schedule.
Can’t say enough good stuff
