"A Community that SWEATS Together, STAYS Together."
We want to provide a safe, encouraging, and positive environment for adults, kids, and athletes of all ages to learn, improve, and reach their health and fitness goals. Most importantly we want to be a place that people leave healthier and happier than when they walked in.
"Women's Strength is about women empowering women. In an intimate setting athletes are coached to tap into that place from within where the pure, raw strength comes from.
An emphasis is placed on mental preparedness and eliminating distractions. No phones, kiddos or significant others - we're taking pen to paper here in our weight calculations and, giving ourselves an undistracted hour to better our minds, bodies and souls. Because that is what weightlifting can do for a woman -- it's more than just lifting weights. When we go internally to harness the physical strength, we are often surprised at the mental and emotional gains as well." - Coach Jenn

There was absolutely NO QUESTION who was April's Athlete of the Month! Hillary is killing the CrossFit game! If you see her on Wodify, you notice shes a beast on the rower and bike, has cardio for days, and everyday is getting stronger in all her lifts. This past month, she achieved her 1st ever strict pull-up, followed by another 4! Completed the Crossfit Level 1 certification course, and had taken on the Kids Camps! I am constantly in awe of all she can do and excited to see where the next few years take her! Hillary, you are so deserving of this in every way! Welcome to the BCF team!
Tell us a little about yourself and family - Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.
I grew up in Coos Bay, Oregon. Ive been married for 14 years and have 3 kids. 1 boy and 2 girls. Im a stay at home mom and Crossfit is my hobby 😄 I used to run marathons but quit when I discovered how much I love the weights and the community.
How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join?I heard about BCF when I googled “Crossfit gyms near me” and a groupon add popped up. I thought I’d try it out for a month. But then never left.
What are your goals? Personal, professional, and athletic?
My professional goal is to be the best kids coach I can be!! I hope they like me! As an athlete, I want to be Alise :) I want to get stronger, lift heavier, and enjoy the process along the way.
What is your favorite movement? Non-favorite movement?I love wall balls and burpees! (Don’t hate me!) I'm also starting to love snatches! Oh and squat cleans. I don’t really care for deadlifts. They’re kind of boring. Guess I should work on that.
What is your proudest CF moment?My proudest moment was FINALLY getting a pull-up. That’s something I’ve wanted to do my whole life.
What is one thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?
What is your biggest motivation in life?My biggest motivations in life are definitely my kids.
Biggest impact CrossFit has made in your life?Oh gosh what hasn’t Crossfit done for me. It has completely changed my way of thinking when it comes to body image. It’s made me more confident in who i am and how I’m built. I’m seeing it in my girls and how they view themselves as well. They talk about how they want to be strong and healthy as they grow. It has also helped my son with his health issues and has put off any treatments or surgeries he may need, for now. It’s definitely the best decision we could have made for our family’s health and happiness.
Now that the CrossFit Open is over you may have an idea of what you want to get better at - some goals for the rest of 2018, but do you have a plan to help yourself get there? If not, don’t stress!
BCF and our team is here to help, beginning with our Goal Setting seminars
So mark your calendar for this or the following weeks’ seminar, and dream a bit about what you might want out of the rest of this year.
