Would you recommend 7 Mile Strength & Fitness to others and if so, why?
CrossFit 7 Mile is not only a place; for me it is place that I love. There are very kind people in the gym with the best and knowledgeable coaches that I have ever met. I’m always happy every time I open the front door.
Thanks Ondrej, we are proud to have you as our July 7 Miler of the Month!
