I was a member of X-project starting around Nov 2015 and left around Jan 2019. I have been crossfitting since 2011 - where I started with a personal trainer at Bally's which incorporated some of the crossfit movements. I have traveled extensively and visited several Crossfit boxes nationally. Here's what I loved about X-project:1. Space - there's tons of space and parking. Facilities are outside of the gym area with separate changing rooms. 2. Equipment/Cleanliness - The equipment is top-notch. 99.9% of the time there were wipes and everyone used them. Also, the floor was cleaned regularly. 3. Community/Coaches - everyone was encouraging, friendly, and supportive. 4. Programming - The WODs and strength work was released for the week, month or quarter. Each WOD had a purpose for strength, endurance/stamina, or a benchmark. I wish X-Project continued success!

I posted this on Facebook, but I wanted to make sure anyone looking for a new gym sees this review: Run, walk, limp, hobble, wheel or hop to this gym as quickly as you can. Forget about what you heard about traditional crossfit gyms. This gym is anything but traditional. The gym as a whole has a leader, Michael, who has a vision of greatness for each and every member of this gym. Beyond just the vision, there is a plan. This has been the only gym I have ever gone to that there is a clear plan to get me to the next step of my goal(s). If you truly take advantage of the knowledge, skill and thoughtfulness put into each workout and/or program you won't be sorry. In just my first week working with X-Project, I was able to do things or crush goals I had been working on for 3+ years with other trainer(s) in the Frederick area. This gym is unique in it's execution of "group classes" as even though we are all working out together, we we each all have our own assignments to work on. It is amazing the tailoring the coaches can do with the members here with each workout. You never need to guess which weights or movement you need to be doing because they will tell you and explain to you why you are doing it as such. You are getting personalized training at the fraction of the cost of paying for a personal trainer. Beyond all that, the community curated by X-Project is amazing, supportive, friendly and fun. When they say "fitness with friends" they mean it it. You will leave the gym with a great workout under you belt and new friends in tow. More...

Nik is the man!!! How could you not love his balanced, thoughtful approach incorporating fitness while building community? I don't think anyone could ever dread working out with Nik calling the shots. You have to come in and see if Nik's workouts are for you. (Hint: they are) More...

The X Project has/is the best thing that I am a part of! I am stronger than I have ever been! I'm fit!! The best part is, I've gained strong friendships and so much support! From the coaches to those I'm working out with - everyone is down to earth and everyone is always willing to help one another. I love being a part of this community that I hope everyone is lucky enough to experience! Thank you! More...

Lifting it, Lugging it, Lagging behind, Laughing and Loving it. Doesn't matter. We have a great time getting strong physically, mentally, emotionally, intellectually and intuitionally. You know you are working hard when the sweat gets in your eyes. Sweat is fat crying. Michael Gaines is serious about your health and how you get there. No shortcuts for him. Do it the right way or don't do it at all. If you are serious about getting strong (physically, mentally, emotionally, intellectually and intuitionally) run, don't walk to XprojectFrederick. You'll be glad you did. More...

No matter what aspect of your health you want to improve---all things physical or mental---the X Project is the place to get the job done. I've been a member of the YMCA and two big name chain gyms and the X Project has them all beat hands down. I've personally transformed from being over 300 pounds and taking 16 prescription meds per day to being 100 pounds lighter and taking only one prescription medication. I am stronger physically and mentally than I have ever been in my entire life. I did the work, but it was the expert coaching that I received at X Project that allowed me to reach my goals. In addition to the excellent coaching I now have an extended family in the other X Project members---we are all united in a quest to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. I walk away from every X Project workout feeling stronger mentally and physically and one step closer to being the best version of myself that I can be. More...

The X project will make you stronger in more ways than you know. I look forward to every workout and when I have to skip a workout I really miss the progress and the people. With an emphasis on skills and knowledge there is no other place in Frederick like it. If you don't check it out, you are holding yourself back! More...

I have been a member of the X-project since it opened its doors, and have been training under the guidance of Michael Gaines for the past two and a half years. Over that time I have enjoyed watching my physique change, my athletic performance improve and elevating my training regimen to a new level.Michael, and his methods as a coach have helped revive athletic ambitions in me that had been somehow tucked away under the stresses of life, years of misguided training, "athletic abuse" and other general misconceptions I learned along the way.I am stronger, faster, and leaner (even gaining flexibility) and I owe most of that to simply committing to the training plan at X-Project. I am certainly not one to settle into a monotonous routine, and feel that the training in here which consist of combination elements focused on gymnastics, weightlifting, and body weight movements keeps me challenged day in and day out. At the same time it focuses me, so I don't have to struggle at the gym trying to pull together an effective workout. The X-Project training program keeps my body guessing, and my performance increasing. In turn I am not only living life as I wish, but I am thriving!While I've been here I have accomplished some life long fitness goals in a relatively short period of time, all while meeting some really amazing people that make up this fitness community. If you are like me, and stuck in a routine leaving you feeling unfulfilled, or simply feel like you could have done more if only you knew how; then please stop thinking about it, don't waste another moment! Come in and join us, join X-Project Frederick, you'll be glad you did, and impressed by your own accomplishments over time! More...

I have been a part of the X-Project family for over half a year now and looking forward to many many more years to come. Michael Gaines (Lead Coach) is patient and always there to encourage when the going gets tough. His knowledge in regards to Cross fit in particular and human anatomy in general is impressive. I was pushed into trying a free session by my wife . Suffice it to say, I signed up on the spot and never looked back . The X-Project saved me from getting numerous back injections, which I was convinced I certainly needed to alleviate the ongoing pain( I am an MD , so who knows better then me? LOL) . Micheal took the time to demonstrate various exercises and help me get over the hump . I am virtually pain free and plan to go for the Full Marathon this year . I feel the strongest and fittest I have felt in a long time. I would definitely recommend to anyone who is serious about Cross fit or just generally looking to get in shape . More...

Michael and the X Project will provide you with so much more than a gym or a trainer. If you are looking to change your life, improve your health, and gain a network of friends who will support you every step of the way, this is for you. The experience you'll get here will make you stronger, healthier and happier! This is the kind of gym you can't wait to go to and will be the best part of your day. Michael is always researching and learning new ways to help his clients and improve their workouts, as well as lifestyles. He will be there to support you in and out of the gym. Not to mention he will kick your butt and push you to go where you never thought you could. Never in my life did I think this kind of workout was for me, but now I'm a total convert and will never do anything else. I absolutely love crushing workouts and constantly seeing my improvement. I'm so happy I got to see this from the beginning, and I can't wait to see where it goes. Thank you, Michael! More...

I started training at The X-Project in June only once a week with a weak painful back. Within three months I went in three times a week and had no fear of my back! I was leaner, stronger and healthier than I had ever been in my entire life! I can not say enough wonderful things about my experience that I continue to have on a daily basis. Thank you to Michael, our trainer, for opening me to a new and improved life! More...
