CrossFit E-Town Community Brings Results

By Kelly Church

When Kevin Teborek and his wife opened CrossFit E-Town, their goal was to share their love of CrossFit. Their Evanston, IL CrossFit studio strives to support every single member as much as they can. In fact, the duo calls their studio more than just a gym and more of a home away from home.

"We have a 'help first' culture here at CrossFit E-Town," Teborek said. "All of our coaches are here to help our athletes. We strive for daily results. These results are what drives our athletes to come back each and every day, and why they come, on average, four days per week."

This community element, Teborek said, is what gives members results. Athletes work together in the gym and form bonds, all with the goal of becoming physically and mentally stronger.

"We, as a community, take pride in each others results," Teborek said. "When our athletes are getting the results they want, the atmosphere becomes electric in our building."

In fact, Teborek said what he thinks makes CrossFit E-Town different than other CrossFit studios is their genuine interest in their athletes' goals. In order to help their members achieve success, coaches are there to make sure that each person is performing movements safely and effectively.

"We have a comprehensive program to educate our athletes before they can sign up for classes (Right Start), where we spend five-plus hours working one-on-one with our members to teach them the fundamentals of CrossFit," Teborek said. "We teach them how to modify the movements as needed and really get to know what they are looking to accomplish. Without this knowledge we as coaches can't help."

Those who are completely new to CrossFit, even those who don't know what CrossFit is, are able to sign up for a No Sweat Intro session at CrossFit E-Town. Coaches provide a tour of the studio and review individual fitness goals while discussing what potential workouts would look like. According to the studio's website there's "no sales pressure, no obligation, no workout (yet)."

The Right Start Program comes next. No matter what level of fitness members bring to the studio, everyone starts with the Right Start Program to properly learn every movement. The program is a series of five training sessions and one goal-setting session.

After the Right Start Program, members can choose what type of training they want. Athletes can opt for personal training to choose to take group classes. Personal training is offered in 30-minute or 60-minute sessions. Group classes are held seven days a week.

"Personally, I love the competition that CrossFit creates," Teborek said. "This is a competition with myself. How hard and long can I push myself? How fast can I get a workout done? How well can I do the movements?"
