I started coming to PMA CrossFit Twin Ports already addicted to RKC-style kettlebells, with a short history of CrossFit out of state. I did exclusively kettlebell classes with trainers Jessica and Kelly for 3 months before CrossFitting at this gym. Jessica and Kelly are great instructors and are extremely helpful and motivating during each workout. I transitioned from kettlebell to CrossFit WODs 4 months ago with trainers Chris, Mary, and Michael. They are excellent instructors who have all helped me reach PRs while pushing me to set new goals for myself along the way. The ‘regulars’ in class have been great to work out with, and everyone is extremely friendly! Check out this gym!!!
