I've been into fitness forever from Jazzercise right through to Insanity. NOTHING comes close to CrossFit Mettleworks. Not only are the coaches TOPNOTCH experts in CrossFit, physiology and nutrition in general, they are motivational and inspiring. They foster a camaraderie among all members. We are truly there for each other! Mettleworks is a family. So AWESOME!!!!! More...
As one of my training partners and co-work Dana has the knowledge, strength, and motivation to get anyone to the next level! If you are every in her area in Deer Park go see her at CFMW! She is Awesome! More...
I'm ADDICTED!! Dana has been soooo wonderful and patient with me! Before Crossfit, I couldn't touch my toes, run, jump rope (still working on sit ups and Burpees lol) or BREATHE! Being an older(53) and very heavy person, I was afraid to try new things (ie. jumping onto a 25 pound weight, never mind a box!(still working up to that one)).
There is so much encouragement and support from EVERYONE not just Dana or the other instructors! The people are so nice and friendly. Unlike other "Gyms" where people do their own thing, at Crossfit, you get the encouragement and kindness to pus yourself to your potential! So many times I say to myself, "who knew, I COULD DO THAT!!"
I never feel embarrassed when I feel clutsy or unsure. Dana goes over everything before each workout so you stay safe and to the greatest benefit. I, personally having ADD, often have a tad bit of trouble remembering what I'm supposed to be doing and how to do it. Dana just smiles at me and reminds me to focus and kindly repeats herself:)
I think the program is outstanding, but even more than that, ANYONE can find a healthy life style by joining Crossfit MettelWorks in Deer Park:)
I look forward to each class with excitement!:) More...
I've been to two separate gyms both run well and out of the two of them I undisputedly say that I favor MettleWorks. MettleWorks isn't just a gym its much more, it's like an extended family where everyone is there to see you succeed and better yourself.
I just recently moved to the area and needed to find a gym. I love CrossFIt mettleworks. Not only is Dana kicking my butt back into shape, the gym is filled with super friendly people that enjoy working out and being challenged. Can't get enough!
I've trained at CrossFit Mettleworks since the first day they've opened and I am so blessed to call the trainers and people here my extended family. Since my first day, my strength, endurance, and speed have drastically improved and I owe it all to Dana!!! Everyone come join the fun!! More...
The patience, knowledge and attention to detail to guide a newcomer into the pack. Yet the drive and persistence to always give the advanced something to work towards. Mettleworks is place that keeps both sides of that coin appeased, not extremely common in cf More...
To say that CFMW changed my life is an understatement. I walked in the first day MettleWorks opened up unhealthy, overweight, lazy, and sluggish. A year and a half later, I've lost weight, I'm healthier and stronger then I've ever been in my life and have more energy than I ever thought I would. I owe all of that success to the knowledgeable coaches and the support of all the members.
Dana, Ben, and Dan have the knowledge and motivational skills to help me through those difficult workouts. Just when I think about quitting or feeling sorry for myself, I hear their voices yelling out "COME ON DANNY! KEEP MOVING!" and I just keep going
The members have become more than friends to me, I consider them family. I look forward everyday to attending class, just so I can catch up with them, work out with them, compete against them, and cheer them on. More...

I started at CFMW in April with a Saturday morning boot camp class and couldn't complete the modified workout due to some preexisting injuries. By the end I was in tears not because of the workout but because of the condition of my body. Dana the owner and coach sat with me and said that I could do all of these movements in just a short time but with some hard work. So I decided to do personal sessions with her and in 3 months I was doing a regular CrossFit workout just with modified weights. I continued with the CrossFit classes and by Sept I did the CMC, a 5 mile military-style obstacle course. By Oct I had lost 60lbs and was in the best shape of my life; More than half of the weight lost was due to CrossFit and Dana's coaching!! My injuries and health issues had all become nonexistent!! She's an amazing coach and has built a team that is filled with motivating and inspirational people who have formed a CrossFit family in and out of the gym. I love CFMW and all its members!!! More...
My sister Lee goes there on a daily basis and can't rave enough about Dana and MettleWorks! She said that there is a team environment like no other place around! I live in Massachusetts, on Cape Cod, but if I lived on Long Island that would be by far my Cross Fit of choice! Keep up the great work Dana and I look forward to seeing more videos! Especially of the "Burpee Challenge"! More...
Great gym! Joining a crossfit gym can seem like a very intimidating thing to do for someone who isn't already in pretty good shape, but the trainers here do a great job scaling the workouts to match your abilities while still challenging you. And the members are very welcoming and really make you feel like part of their team. I would absolutely recommend this place for everyone! Check it out! More...
I worked out at your standard type gym for 22 years years, it was like a second home to me. However, I started falling into the rut of doing the same routine on the same days week after week. It got boring. As I get older, I realized I need to work harder to maintain health. Crossfit seemed like it was extreme and too difficult. I decided to try it anyway and I am not going back. The coaches at CFMW are great. For me safety was a big concern due to previous back issues and a recent knee survey. All the coaches work with me to scale my workouts in order to improve my strength and fitness. My knee is healing well and I have not had any issue with my back. If anything through proper stretching and lifting form, it feels better than ever! It is a great place to train, and I always find myself laughing and smiling there because of the coaches and members. More...
I am so proud to be able to call myself a member of the Crossfit Mettleworks family. It's been a year this month that I have been at our box and I have to say I have loved every second of it. Speaking as a young female athlete my whole life and after a division 2 sport I didn't know where to turn. I was missing that competitiveness, that drive, the team aspect of my life that I was so used to. Finally one night I went with my brother to see 'Crossfit' with my own eyes, and I fell in love. Everything about it felt right, the respectful and professional coaches, the safe environment with a competitive intense twist. I joined a year ago and never looked back. As a female athlete I am proud to tell people where I workout and what we do. Hosting our 'Strong is Beautiful' competition is another plus to being apart of our gym. That is our theme and something I live by everyday now! My advice for anyone thinking about joining is DO IT! Everyone is capable no matter what. You won't regret it. More...
A great place to train when you decide you want a healthy lifestyle. The owner and coaches are very inspiring. The workouts are challenging but not impossible. The members are so nice, friendly, and supportive. I am so glad I joined. More...
If you're looking to challenge yourself or just trying to get motivated to start a basic exercise routine, Crossfit Mettleworks is the place to do it. I'm there now, and it's a very friendly, family oriented atmosphere. I can safely say, I look forward to going to my next workout everytime. They helps me gradually achieve that next level step by step. 100% love it. More...

Great coaches that know your limits and encourage you to surpass them. No intimidation factor here!!! Other members become great friends and motivated you to do things you didn't think were possible. CFMW makes working out fun!!!
From the expertise and motivation of the coaches, to the friendly/family vibe of the members, I love everything about Crossfit MettleWorks. They've helped me shatter the goals I had and continue to make and break new ones More...
I was introduced to crossfit at MettleWorks. It has completely changed my life. Their outstanding coaching and enthusiasm in seeing their members improve is incredibly motivating and second to none!
Today was my first day back to Mettleworks after a four month absence. Now I remember why I joined. Such support from your teammates and coaches. Best of the Best.
love this place.. no egos, no bullsh*t.. just great coaches and great people. They will work you hard but always with an emphasis on correct form and doing things the right way.
Love this place. It's a second home where the ppl u workout with is like family.
Family, Inspiration, Community, Confidence, Insane, Discipline.
That is only a few of the many words that could describe Crossfit Mettleworks.
My experience with Crossfit Mettleworks has been nothing short of a life changing event. The coaching staff, the seasoned athletes and everyone who comes thru the door is truly genuine. If you are new to Crossfit you will learn real quick its a very humbling experience to get through your daily workout (WOD) and how we all pull together as a family to push each other further and further each day.
If you are looking to get into Crossfit, or even looking to find a new box to jump into Crossfit Mettleworks would be the place.

At 60 years old I never thought I would ever be able to do crossfit. Dana has changed my life. I love the fact that everyday is a new workout. She really pushes you!!
