Kerri’s Story

Kerri Schommer There is a very long list of reasons that I came to CutThroat.  However I think the driving force has been my health. I will be the big 5-0 in July.  When you have that staring you in the face you realize you better get your act together while you still have a chance!  I don’t want to work all of these years so I can retire to my couch.  I want to travel and be active and if I don’t take care of myself that won’t happen.  I work as a home health RN and let me tell you your lifestyle choices will catch up with you!  Here is a quote […]

Jeff’s (OJ’s) Story

I was sitting around after my second daughter headed off to college 3 and ½ years ago and I decided I needed to add a new activity into my life.  It was in the Fall and I needed something to do in the off season from my tennis leagues.  I felt like I was becoming a couch potato and frequently needed chiropractic adjustments to loosen up my neck and shoulders. I found CutThroat CF while on a trail ride behind the facility and looked it up.  I knew a few guys that worked out at CF boxes and thought I should give it a try.  I came in […]

Deana’s Story

Deana Bull About 4 years ago I felt really “stuck” and I needed a change in my life and my workout routine.  My sister, at the time, was really into CrossFit and encouraged me to look into it because she knew I would love it.  So I did, it looked super fun and it seemed to be just what I needed but I wasn’t sure it was a possibility for me.  Due to being an athlete most of my life and due to a bit of bad luck I had undergone a total of 9 knee surgeries, I had osteoarthritis and I was ACL deficient in both knees.

Gavin’s Story

Gavin Slater I had a work friend who talked me into trying CrossFit at another box. I stayed there a little over a year before they moved and increased their rates. I then looked at and visited a bunch of area gyms but felt most comfortable at CutThroat including the level of coaching.  My first impression of CrossFit was there are so many movements to conquer and such an incredible workout. Fortunately I had a running background and I thought I was in good shape until I tried a workout. Everyone told me about the community atmosphere and I believe that is what makes CF so special. Five years […]

What brought me to CrossFit in the first place was my dog. In the fall of 2011, I was winding down my post collegiate rowing career and had just moved to Covington, KY where I didn’t really know anyone. After a few weeks of walking my dog by CrossFit Covington and seeing all of the intensity (I actually planned my route to get better intel), I got enough courage to walk in the door and start. It was a natural fit for me after years of competing and training in rowing. I spent about two years CrossFitting and occasionally competing at a very mediocre level, and then on […]

I first heard about Crossfit from Scott Nickel, but I didn’t know what it was.  I thought it must be something for strong male athletes.  Then, I ran into a neighbor one summer who I hadn’t seen for a while and she looked GREAT.  I asked her what she’d done and she said 6 months of CrossFit. So after asking around people said the best coaching was at CutThroat. I’ve never been an athlete.  The only exercise I did consistently was running (jogging) and I think my body figured out how to use the least amount of muscles and expend the least amount of energy so it did little for me in terms of […]

The “real story” about how I found CrossFit in the first place is quite long but I was 29 years old and had just found out my wife was pregnant. I had always been pretty fit and played a ton of sports. After college I had gotten exceedingly unhealthier year after year. When I went on my honeymoon I was pretty bothered by how I looked but would never consistently go to 24 hour fitness. Or I would start a running program and fail. But I just kept drinking … a lot. My wife always wanted to work out at night after 7:30 which I hated. So I […]
