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.

My son and his high school football friends participated in the Strongpoint CrossFit Sports Performance Program. The boys felt that they were better served by working out with Ryan at Strongpoint than with the standard football team workouts in the off-season. The results speak for themselves. In addition to increased strength and improved technique, the boys increased their aerobic capacity to the point that they lead the team in endurance drills. A significant side effect of Ryan’s coaching is the improved confidence that comes from the completion of the challenging workouts and the tangible physical body composition results the boys enjoy. I recommend this program for the development of any athlete, any sport. Semper Fi!

I’ve been going here since it opened. There is a relatively even mix of males and females here. 40 plus year olds like me and younger late teens here. It’s a very encouraging welcoming atmosphere. My wife is now addicted-I didn’t see that coming. Everybody is friendly and supportive no matter what your level of fitness is. Ryan Miller owns and teaches. He is very knowledgeable about nutrition, athletic performance, technique, and has a passion for all things fitness.

I stepped into Strongpoint CrossFit for the first time as what I would consider to be a well-conditioned individual with a strong background in weightlifting. My first workout was a humbling experience to say the least. In the short amount of time I’ve been doing CrossFit my strength has improved, my knowledge and execution of lifts are much better, and my endurance has increased substantially. The coaches at Strongpoint are second to none. To anyone looking to achieve their fitness goals, look no further!!!

Great box! When I moved to their area, I didn’t even unpack and I went to visit. Ryan and his team welcomed me with open arms and loud jungle calls. Gonna be moving to another area of town, but will return every now and then to visit my new friends!

Strongpoint CrossFit is a valuable asset to the Jacksonville community. Ryan and Jimmy are excellent coaches who are well-versed in the CrossFit practice. Their knowledge and expertise create an environment where an individual can enhance their athletic performance through a variety of challenging workouts with the support and encouragement of the coaches and Strongpoint community. Strongpoint CrossFit keeps an individual well-rounded by offering educational lectures and programs such as yoga, Pilates, and group runs. Strongpoint CrossFit is highly recommended for anyone looking to enhance their overall fitness and lifestyle.

I was invited to “bring a friend day” at Strongpoint CrossFit back in August 2012 and I am so glad that I went. Before CrossFit, I ran 12-minute miles (yes I am a slow runner) and had a membership at World’s Gym. I never really liked going to gym because I did not know how to properly use any of the weights and no one was around to show me. I basically had a gym membership to do more cardio. I was maybe 15-20 lbs heavier than I needed to be and you would think all the cardio I did, my weight would fall off easier. Eight months into CrossFit, I have never felt better!!! Not only do I feel better, I look better (even at 43)! Yes, originally my plan with CrossFit was to lose weight, which I accomplished but I am stronger, leaner (loving that I can actually see muscles on me) and have also increased my endurance (now running 10.5 minute miles). Ryan Miller and his staff are very knowledgeable in technique, athletic performance and you can definitely tell they love coaching CrossFit. Strongpoint has very friendly staff with a positive atmosphere.

Strongpoint CrossFit will change you for the better. Why?…The leadership at CrossFit is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. As a 30+ year fitness professional, I am very impressed with Ryan Miller’s strong commitment to helping every client achieve their goals. Decide where you want to be in your fitness journey, discuss your objectives with Ryan and together you will see the results you want. What are you waiting for?

I just want to thank all the coaches as Strongpoint. I just ran around my neighborhood (approx 3 miles) in the fastest I ever have done it. I had so much energy left over that I came back to my house and did 74 consecutive double unders (which is now my PR). It honestly feels awesome and I would recommend CrossFit to anyone.

It was almost a year ago that I felt the need to get back in the gym and do something for myself after a long absence of any consistent workout routine. Both my cousin and a friend were doing CrossFit. I did research and was intimidated at first, but knew that Strongpoint was the closest box that would fit into my daily routine if I liked this style of workout. I signed up for a free intro and went, from then on I was hooked. I had gone to several “regular” gyms but it didn’t hold my interest, I got bored really quick. CrossFit offers variety and also offers all the pros of being part of a team and community which I missed from my days of soccer and other team sports I had done in the past. Ryan and the Strongpoint community have pushed me to be better than I thought I could be in the beginning! I’m so happy to have joined this box and wouldn’t go anywhere else!

I highly recommend Strongpoint CrossFit to anyone who is interested in exploring the CrossFit methodology. Ryan is an excellent instructor and has outstanding leadership skills that he has honed while serving our country in the United States Marine Corps. Go see Ryan – you won’t regret it!

As a distance runner I have always been worried about what the effects of weight lifting and cross training would have on me. So when I heard of CrossFit I was skeptical. I was wrong to be skeptical! I feel better than ever I’ve ever felt and I owe it to Ryan and Strongpoint CrossFit. I was very fortunate to find Ryan Miller and Strongpoint CrossFit and have been training with them for almost a year. My flexibility (which was non-existent as a runner) is starting to improve. Most of all I really look forward to getting up in the morning and training at CrossFit. I would never go anywhere else! Ryan is a talented coach who not only teaches proper technique but also plans the daily WODS so that you get a challenging workout and great results. The entire atmosphere at Strongpoint makes you want to keep coming back for more. I highly recommend Strongpoint and Ryan no matter what your fitness level is…he is great with beginners and advanced. Good people and sometimes its even fun!

I had not worked out in over 2yrs, my clothes were not fitting like they used to, and I looked like “a busted can of biscuits” when I put on my skinny jeans….. So that’s when I decided to give Strongpoint CrossFit a try! I’ve been working out there for about a month and I am HOOKED!!! I love that the workouts are challenging and are different everyday, so no boring gym routine to follow.
I would rec. Strongpoint CrossFit over a traditional gym any day. You’ll pay a little more, but it’s well worth it!!! It’s kinda like “sharing” a personal trainer with a few of your friends! The coaches are there to help you scale down a workout to fit your fitness level, so you can make progress and prevent injury! Ryan and Jimmy are awesome coaches!
