Results That Speak For Themselves

Our client’s success is our success. Here are some of the achievements we’ve celebrated with our community.
Olivia Valdes

This place turned into my second home literally after my first class. They’re culture is amazing and besides being an awesome place to meet new people and become part of a community, the workouts and programming are super challenging, encouraging you to become a better athlete every day. I love this box.

Julianah Kayode

Well, I went in for a trial week and never left. I love the atmosphere, coaches and ever evolving workouts that kick my butt and keep me humble. I have tried many gyms over the last 15 years, but I found a home at Riptide. I am in the best shape of my life and I've gained a community of support. I'm excited to see what the future holds at Riptide.

10/5 stars! The best thing about this gym is the community. Every class is welcoming and inclusive and everyone is supportive of each other. The coaches set this tone by treating each member like family. It doesn’t matter your fitness level or experience with CrossFit, they will help you reach your goals and push you even further. Going to class is the best part of my day!

Robert Bookbinder

I started at Riptide CrossFit with no previous CrossFit experience whatsoever. The coaching staff immediately made me feel very welcome there and I have been enjoying it ever since. All of the coaches are great and provide all the guidance you could ever possibly want, the social community at the gym is also amazing. I highly recommend this gym!

Gregory Dalla Valle Fonseca

Nate Gonzales is one of the best coaches I have ever met. His ability to teach the technique and extract the best of me has helped me a lot on the past six months. Also, I’ve had the opportunity of a buy in at Riptide CrossFit at the end of 2020 and it was awesome! Great gym and great atmosphere! It’s a shame I don’t live in Fort Lauderdale! Otherwise, Riptide surely would be my first choice of box for training. Thank you!

Philip Muller

This gym sets the bar for great coaching, helpful staff, and friendly members. I love the vibe- the perfect combination of jovial camaraderie and “let’s push ourselves” attitude. I have dropped into CrossFit gyms traveling all over the world, and I always enjoy coming home to the supportive environment at Riptide. Great full-body workouts and top notch coaching.

Robert Cannellos

These guys are awesome – I feel so comfortable working at my own pace and still doing the CrossFit daily cycle. My favorite part is I can work out in the fresh air! I always hear “be careful” when I tell friends I am doing crossfit – I always tell them how present and encouraging the staff are there, they always help with alignments or alternative methods to get the results; been recommending Riptide to all my friends!
