Modern Stength / Home of Crossfit Mystic has been one of the best things that has happened to me when it comes to living healthy. At 35 I truely feel that I am in the best shape of my life. I owe that all to such an amazing gym - the instructors and group of people that are a part of this place! Every group class is different; every movement is differentiated to fit your needs and your goals. My only regret is not joining years ago! Definately a place worth stopping by and checking out.

Can not recommend this gym more. Chris and Mary are amazing owners and athletes and are very involved. Definitely check them out!
Dropped for open gym to do 19.5 while in town visiting family. Chris, the owner, was there and was extremely welcoming. Showed us where to get equipment, pulled up their warm up on Wodify and took time to encourage us both during the wod.......my wife and I enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend for anyone dropping in. More...
Dropped in for a class on vacation. Friendly coaches and athletes, 1 of the better drop in experience I have had
Visiting from Minnesota, dropped in for a Sunday morning WOD. Chris and Mary are awesome coaches, and the Crossfit Mystic community is excellent! I'd definitely come back for another WOD when I'm in town. More...
Chris & Mary are simply the best! They are very motivating and always have your best interest in mind! All of the athletes I've met there are very friendly and encouraging. Love CrossFit Mystic!
Chris and Mary have done an awesome job of coaching, inspiring, and showing everyone that walks in the door that they are welcome. That foundation has set Crossfit Mystic way ahead of everyone else. Want get in shape? Want to start moving again? Diet and nutrition plans? Go in, stop by! You won't regret it. Best part of the day is Crossfit Mystic! More...
Dropped in this box while I was visiting family in the area. Chris and Mary are great coaches and were very welcoming. I would highly recommend this box to anyone looking to improve their health and fitness.
As a newbie I've had nothing but great experience at crossfit mystic . Chris and Mary are amazing coaches and so knowledgeable and encouraging ! They make the 25 min drive worth it ! I highly recommend them :) More...
Dropped in for several WODs while on vacation. Nice facility. I'm injured, and older, and the coaches (Amber, AJ, Mary and Chris) were accommodating and helpful and no one seemed to mind that I modified everything. Chris found a modification I hadn't found at home and I'll take it back with me. I look forward to returning next August. More...
The best decision I ever made was starting my journey at CFM. They aren't just great coaches they are family. Everyone in the box looks out for each other and encourages each other's progress. When you fall someone is right there to help pick you back up . I am so proud to be a part of this community. More...
When my friend first asked me to try CrossFit I was nervous and intimidated by the idea because I thought I would be way out of my league. Despite my fears, I agreed to give it a try and signed up to attend CFM's free fundamentals class on Saturday. When I first walked in, I immediately felt welcomed by the members and coaches. I was impressed with the amount of time and energy Chris and Mary spent helping us learn the fundamental movements. They helped us build a solid foundation so we don't hurt ourselves during the workouts. They keep classes small so they can provide more one-on-one coaching which prevents bad form and injury. They always find ways to modify or scale the workouts so that EVERYONE can participate, regardless of your fitness level or physical disABILITY. I especially appreciate this as an adaptive athlete. If you are serious about meeting your health and fitness goals, I highly recommend CFM! More...
Crossfit Mystic is by far one of the best boxes I've ever been to. They take care of their athletes start to finish when working out and hold a high standard of how their program should be run. EVERY person that walks in the door is important to them, and they see the potential in people that sometimes they cannot see for themselves. They are positive, encouraging, and committed. If you have a goal, they are with you to support and guide you. Chris and Mary run an outstanding box, and I've loved being part of their community! More...
As a college athlete looking to get ready for an upcoming season, I couldn't have had a better place to do it. Stepping into the box for the first time I had no expectation of what was to come. I was tying my sneakers when people started coming up and introducing themselves to me and that is not an experience I've had other than on the field. The real selling point for me was when we actually started the work out and the intensity picked up as well, people were pushing not only themselves but those around them to be better and that environment is one geared for success. Crossfit mystic helped me get to not only where I wanted to be but even further. More...

As an owner, can I rate my own gym? I think so ;)
Our community blows me away with their effort and camaraderie. They come in, put in the work, see crazy amazing results, and have a pretty good time while doing it. They thrive on learning new things and unleashing things they never thought their body was capable of. Our community what makes us amazing. More...
Only my second night at CrossFit Mystic but I already know how they achieve such high ratings. The coaches I've worked with (Chris and Mary) who also own the facility are highly knowledgeable. And they ensure form and function are the focus to get the most out of the workouts while avoiding injury. From the moment you step through the door you feel welcomed and part of a community. Since turning 42 I have felt myself fall off from where I used to be strength and energy wise. I believe I have certainly found my new home to summon my inner athlete to return and reach my fitness goals.

Thank you for a great drop in class!! Went over power squat cleans in great detail was able to fix my form and correct it!! Will definitely drop in again when I am in the neighborhood! For those lucky enough to live here definitely give it a try!! More...
Awesome drop in and an amazing staff!! Also, great to meet Maggie the crossfit mascot
Had my first Fundamentals class and already I'm hooked. Mary and Chris are great trainers--patient, knowledgeable, encouraging and fun. Just do it!
Chris is an awesome athlete and trainer, I'm sure he'll be very successful in his new box and his athletes won't be disappointed.
It will be a life changing experience. Staff are great, great sense of community and common goals
I did a drop in and the instructor, who was also the owner gave us a complete in depth work out. Very knowledgeable, I highly recommend going there!
Chris and Mary are amazing athletes but more importantly are great coaches. Able to translate their knowledge to your body's movement. Made great strides at their box. Can't say enough good things. More...
Literally the best CrossFit box you will ever step foot into. Chris and Mary (the owners) truly care about every person that steps foot into their facility. They have taken the time to grow their coaches and ensure they have the same mentality. The community is also the best you'll find. The attitude of any facility starts from the top and trickles down. Overall, this is a great place where you will feel welcomed and cared for. If you get the opportunity drop in and experience these amazing people for yourself. More...
Crossfit Mystic has a great team and community to be a part of. I was visiting the area for work and I wanted to stay in shape while I was there for just 3 weeks.My experience with the trainers/owners was amazing, they want to help you succeed. Highly recommended for long termers or short timers looking to augment their workout routine and really push themselves.It's worth the time and money, very easy and convenient for anyone. Just show up! More...
I like this gym a lot.
I was a visting the area and chose to try CrossFit Mystic. I am still new to Crossfit, but all of the trainers were helpful and supportive. It can be intimidating to go into a new gym, but I felt right at home. Quality instruction, good workouts and a clean environment. Check it out! More...
The explosion of Crossfit as a training methodology comes with its pros and cons, and Crossfit Mystic is one of the big pros of the fitness world.I've been an athlete for much of my life and have been training for years; I was even a personal trainer myself for two years after college. Crossfit Mystic was my first time stepping into a "box" to get my workout in, and I was pleased to find that none of the typical horror stories you hear about substandard coaching or facilities in Crossfit applies here.Mary is a knowledgeable coach with an eye for movement. Workouts are intelligently planned and have structure to them (this isn't the kind of box that picks their workouts out of a hat). She amps you up to perform and work hard, and keeps an eye on your movement at all times. She is quick to help you with limitations and decrease (or increase) complexity as needed, and is good at communicating her cues.The facility is well-organized and open with plenty of space, and is not so big that it feels empty. The equipment is top-notch and kept in good order, there is plenty of chalk available, and there is an array of strength implements many gyms lack. The mere fact that a heavy log, atlas stones, and sled were tucked to the side made me happy. This is not a circuit-training facility dressing itself in Crossfit branding. This is a legit place to forge your strength and fitness in a team environment with intelligent and motivated coaches. More...
