I don’t usually write reviews, but I have had such an amazing experience at Persistence Athletics that I felt like I needed to share my experience. I came in at the start of the summer with chronic lower back pain, and an incredible amount of stiffness in my hamstrings, lower back and hips. This was all caused by a typical office / desk job where I was spending a lot of my day sitting and staring at a screen. I decided to do something about it one day and sent Jacque an email inquiring about their program and gym!

I met with Jacque for an initial consultation where I explained my goals, what my motivations were, and let Coach Jacque do a preliminary screening of my movement and physical fitness. I originally was nervous to join a “crossfit” gym because of the reputation that crossfit has of being an injury prone sport, but those fears were soon put to rest when I realized how important the coaches at Persistence take good form and solid foundational movement. All workouts scale, so no matter where you are in your fitness journey you won’t have pressure to ego-lift and risk hurting yourself by lifting with bad form. Both Ravi and Jacque truly care about their athletes and their goals and you can expect to get personalized instruction both in 1×1 sessions as well as in a class setting.

I’ve been coming to Persistence regularly for around three months now, and I’m happy to say my lower back has never felt better! It’s also an added plus that I look better, am stronger, and have more energy than ever. Jacque and Ravi won’t be able to do the workouts for you, but they do pretty much everything else. It’s as simple as showing up consistently and giving your best effort during every workout, and you will see results!

If you are thinking about making a change and taking your health and fitness seriously, I couldn’t recommend a better community to become a part of! Can’t wait to see you in class 🙂
