Success Stories

Our members come to our gym for a number of reasons. They want to lose fat. They hope to gain muscle mass. They want to ready themselves for the summer season. They want to train for a specific sport. But, ultimately, they want to live longer, happier and healthier lives. In our experience we have found that no two members are alike.

But don’t just take our word for it. Check out some of our member success stories below.

CrossFit with the help of Trevor and Justin has transformed my body from a 50 year-old stiff and overweight out of shape guy to a competitive athlete who feels 10 years younger.

CrossFit Elkhorn has been life-changing for me in a way that is almost indescribable. I never considered health and fitness to be much of a priority for my life, but after working with the amazing people and coaches at CFE I have to say their enthusiasm is contagious!

I find myself shocked daily at the feats I am able to accomplish with the guidance, encouragement, and support I receive there, and it permeates into all other aspects of my life. The environment and sense of community they have fostered is unmatched and every time I walk in I feel like I’m walking into my second “home”.

It is safe to say that giving CrossFit Elkhorn a try is easily one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Julia Rehm

Before starting CrossFit I only dreamed of lifting! The first time I went to meet with Trevor I said I just wanted to get in shape!

CFE has become so much more then that to me now, it’s a way of life and the people at the gym are my family! This year I deadlifted 300lbs and continue to hit PRs! CrossFit has also helped me build my confidence and given me something to be proud of! To say I love this place would be an understatement!

Stacy Everson

Since I’ve been at CFE, I have dramatically increased my fitness level exponentially. I’ve been in the fitness game for many years and I have learned more at CFE than ANY other place I have tried to better myself physically.

The coaches and staff at CrossFit Elkhorn are top notch. They are educated professionals and love what they do because it reflects in how the facility is ran and maintained.

Trevor, Sarah, Justin and Seth are like my family…we have shared enough life together that has involved some hardships and heartbreak. These people put up with a lot of my crap sometimes and just encourage me past certain roadblocks that life can hand you sometimes…

Everyone at CFE are very welcoming, encouraging, and motivational…if you want a REAL gym environment that you can be accepted, but pushed to be a better you, this is the place! I’m “true blue” to this place and the people in it…check it out, you won’t be disappointed!

I joined CrossFit Elkhorn in January 2017. Coaches Trevor, Justin, and Seth are unequivocally great coaches. CFE and the coaching staff changed my life.

Joe Hurley

I’ve been actively crossfiting for almost 10 years and several gyms have made that possible. My journey lead me to CrossFit Elkhorn almost 2 years ago.

CrossFit Elkhorn is the premiere CrossFit gym in the Omaha area. Up until my tenure began with CFE, I would have to say my experience and expectations of what i was hoping to get were depleted. Coming to CFE has made me realize that coaching, friendliness, facilities, community, and most of all improvements in my fitness can actually take place under one roof.

With CFE, you aren’t compromising anything. It’s truly the best in Omaha and after traveling all over the U.S. and experiencing gyms everywhere……. I feel safe to say that CFE is the most complete and competent place I’ve ever been in attendance.

If you’re looking for a place to call your own, look no further.

Brian Preisendorf

I started CrossFit 1 year ago (2017) to improve my physical capabilities. I knew I had room to improve, but I never imagined I would be doing what I am now 1 year ago.

It all comes down to the coaches. Trevor, Justin, and Seth are more than I could’ve asked for. Their level of integrity, character, knowledge, kindness, patience and love for each member is what helped me get to where I am, and why I will come back year after year.

Lastly, the community here is like a family away from home. Everyday this is one of the best parts of my day, thanks to the members.

Brianna Paulsen

Hey there!

I know I am only one month in, but I can definitely tell how CrossFit is not only changing me physically, but also mentally. Prior to CF, I was very apathetic and really didn’t have much drive in my life….”going through the motions” as they say. I’m new to Omaha, and joining CF has helped me to feel:

A sense of community by meeting new and like-minded people who want to better themselves
A sense of accomplishment (though they be small….they are still accomplishments!)
More purpose in my life. I feel more eager to get through the day knowing I have a fun, challenging, and competitive workout at the end of it.

I’m excited to continue to understand the lifts, challenge myself, and become stronger physically and mentally.

Thank you for all you guys do!

I’ve been at the gym since June of 2017 and love it. Nobody at the gym cares how strong or weak you are, everyone’s there to just get a good workout in. That’s my favorite part. You can be the weakest person in the world and everyone at the end of a workout still going to give you praise that you finished, no matter the weight, no matter the reps.

The coaches push you and you see result. If you played any sports, you’ll like the atmosphere. It feels like you’re part of a team and the coaches are there cheering you on. They care about your life and your goals that you have set for yourself when it comes to your own fitness journey.

I’m not 100% where I want to be personally but from workouts, to helping figure out a meal plan, CrossFit Elkhorn has you covered. I’ve personally lost over 20 pounds since June. My goal as I get into 2018 is to become more consistent with the gym. That’s the key. Just show up and you’ll see results.
