Why did you choose CF Spero?  

I Googled "CrossFit" and it was the closest gym. Dave seemed okay at the initial meeting, albeit a little intense.

What keeps you coming back?

Sushi. Specifically various tuna sashimi.

What would you say to someone thinking about starting CrossFit at Spero?

Anything else you would like to share with the Spero family?

Having dropped in at a couple other boxes now, I can really say that the programming and people at Spero are just the best. It's hard to imagine CrossFit being as fun or engaging if the atmosphere and workouts weren't as great as they are.
