"Owned by Amanda Street, CrossFit Shoofly began three years ago as CrossFit Fuquay-Varina, a small affiliate sequestered in a corner of a large traditional fitness center. But Street’s values clashed with the priorities of the center, so she packed up her affiliate and moved to an abandoned hardware store in downtown Fuquay-Varina, a small town notable for the intersection of railroads that divides the two formerly distinct towns of its namesake."

This place is amazing. The coaches, the programming, the people, the comradery...it's everything you could ask for in a gym and more. I've been a member for over 2 years, and Shoofly is my second home and these people are my family. The coaches get to know you and any limitations you have, and they help you individually maximize each workout. Everyone is welcoming and encouraging, and you walk away from each class looking forward to going back. I'm in my mid-30s and in the best shape of my life thanks to Shoofly and its coaches. I can't say enough good things.
This is not just a Crossfit gym it a family and community that takes care of each other. The coaching staff is amazing and extremely knowledgeable. I have been apart of the community for almost 3 years now and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. So if you're looking for a great place to get fit and have the support of an entire gym community come by and check it out!!!!! Crossfit Shoofly It's Not Just a Name.
I've aged. It's true, I'm 57, and how I define 'being fit' has changed. I want to be heart healthy! I want strong bones, pliable joints, lungs that fill to capacity - I want to FUNCTION as I age. Crossfit is functional fitness and Crossfit Shoofly has been the right place at the right time. Amanda Street and her coaching staff are top tier. They teach form and purpose and modify workouts to fit my abilities. It's an environment with no pretense, no pressure, just people chugging for better health like me. Fitness isn't magically bestowed, especially as we age. I highly recommend Crossfit Shoofly as the place to start.
When my husband Brad first started CrossFit, I made fun of him for joining "the cult" and that he was totally drinking the CrossFit kool-aid. For years, he continued to ask me to go to a class with him, but I refused and continued to do my cardio bunny workouts with the occasional lifting session at my "normal" gym. Needless to say, I wasn't seeing results. So, finally, after much resistance and skepticism, I cracked and joined CrossFit right after the Memorial Day MURPH workout. Crazy, right? But I was hooked. Immediately. All of the misconceptions in my head about CrossFit were completely debunked. The biggest draw initially was the supportive, family-like atmosphere and the experienced coaches who know just how to push you to be your best every day- whatever that may look like! I know, that's such a cliche, but it couldn't be more true at CrossFit Shoofly. People treat each other like family and truly care about each other's daily successes. Some days, the workouts are really sucky and hard, but having your family there to push you, encourage you, and even do extra kettle bell swings alongside you makes all the difference. Plus, since getting my nutrition dialed in with Street back in April, I've lost 20 pounds and 11% body fat! I have a ways to go to reach my weight loss and strength goals, but I'm getting stronger, both mentally and physically, and I sincerely look forward to seeing my Shoofly fam every day. I guess you could say I'm drinking that CrossFit kool-aid now, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.
