The CFR Community

After losing weight and gaining it all back at a traditional gym, a friend introduced me to CrossFit Richardson. I am stronger than ever and challenged to be the best me.  It’s a place where the first and last are cheered on, and a place where community is cultivated daily.Laura, client since 2012
