"I joined Ohio Strength 2  1/2 years ago.  At the time I was looking for something to challenge me, get me back in shape, and meet people as I was new to Columbus.  This was the best decision I've ever made.  I played multiple sports throughout High School but quickly fell into a monotonous routine of underwhelming workouts in my adult life.  During my first week of CrossFit onboarding the owner, Ryan, worked with me one-on-one to ensure I learned proper technique and felt confident in my movements.  I had never held a barbell in my life.  Fast forward and I am now in the best shape of my life, I am stronger and feel better for it every day.  Not only have the small victories over the past few years made all my hard work worth it (my first pull up, clean and jerking my body weight, my first muscle up), but the camaraderie and sense of community that I've found at Ohio Strength is like none other.  I've made life-long friends here and for that I'm truly grateful to Ryan, all of the coaches, and members that make me look forward to going to the gym every day."

"Ohio Strength = Game Changer. By the sixth fundamentals class, I was completely hooked. The coaches are knowledgeable and passionate; the workouts are smart, and the members are a blast to train with. Be prepared for quick improvements if you’re consistently attending. (I can already feel a difference.) This is exactly what I needed in my exercise life, which was stale, repetitive and unfocused. I’m eager to see what the fitness future holds for me – I have a feeling it will be chock-full I things I never imagined.
Exercise is medicine, and Ohio Strength was the exact prescription I needed. (Although a little cowbell can’t hurt.) Warning: side effects may include improved fitness and body composition, increased energy, stamina and confidence, healthy camaraderie and improved quality of life!"
