A MOUNTAIN IS DEFINED AS:
“A natural elevation of the earth surface rising more or less abruptly from the surrounding level and attaining an altitude which, relatively to the adjacent elevation, is impressive or notable.”
STRENGTH IS DEFINED AS:
“The quality or state of being strong; Mental, bodily or muscular power”
MOUNTAIN STRENGTH CAN BE DEFINED AS:
“A natural elevation of the quality or state of being strong from the surrounding levels that is impressive or notable.”
“The steeper the mountain, the harder the climb, the better the view from the finishing line.”
Having already been going to my CrossFit gym in CT for 3 years, I didn’t know what to expect from Mountain Strength. After attending classes now for 6 weeks, I can say that this gym is phenomenal. Super friendly and knowledgeable coaches, high quality equipment and a welcoming and supportive community make MSCF a superior CrossFit gym!

Rich and his staff are very positive and approachable, offer a wealth of knowledge, and place a strong emphasis on form over weight or reps. Athletes can feel secure knowing that while they will be pushed to new heights, their health and safety are always first. Rich also offers a Spartan SGX course, designed for athletes interested in obstacle racing. Highly recommended!

Great drop in workouts the past couple days! Excellent coaching! Made me feel like I was at my box Crossfit Traverse back home!

Rich Borgatti is one of the most genuine people I have ever met. This shines through in his gym, MSCF–if I lived in the area I would absolutely send my whole family to train with Rich and his team. Five stars.

In 1 year at MSCF I was able to improve my max lifts deadlift, clean, squat and snatch from my previous best done in my early 30s. Over this time I also was able lose 45lbs while adding muscle. I was coached every session on my technique which lead to new PWRs and encouraged which helped motivate to get fit.

Awesome educated and caring coaches, great athletes. Love visiting and dropping in for workouts and love the atmosphere. Folks in the area would be silly not to be a member at Mountain Strength!

Thank you Mountain Strength Crossfit! While in Boston I found your box online and was so happy I did. Not only was everyone really friendly but the training was excellent! I had a great time- even during Lumberjack 20! I hope to visit you all again in the future( just not in the winter- brrrr!)

Reminded again this morning why MSCF is so great – my classmates and coach cheering me through a very hard workout which I really wanted to quit halfway through. The coaching and community here cannot be beat.

In November, I did something I never expected I would do: I started overeating on purpose. Yes, you read that right – I deliberately ate more than my body’s caloric requirements for the express purpose of gaining weight. Why would I ever do that after all of the...
When people learn I am a nutrition coach, one of the first things they often say to me is “Oh, I wish I had more time to eat healthy food, but I’m just too busy to cook.” I get it. I really do. I was a trial attorney for twenty years, a partner in my own law firm...
I always hated sweat and dirt. As a result, I spent most of my childhood with my nose in a good book. My individual athletic career (ice skating, gymnastics and ballet) pretty much ended before my tenth birthday when I realized I had neither the aptitude nor the...
Renegade Rowing at MSCF This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending Patrick Larcom’s Renegade Rowing Seminar here at MSCF. I love rowing, but it was a gradual process to get to this point. When I first started CrossFit, I had no idea what I was doing on an erg....
Don't Forget Your Toothbrush -Warren Cormier I have a great affinity for sardines. I really love these little guys. They’ve become a game changer for me when it comes to reeling in my nutrition. They’re jam packed with good stuff for the body, relatively...
You Can’t Run from the Facts For many years, moderate intensity steady state cardiovascular activity (MISS), and running in particular, was touted as THE best way to lose weight and get lean. While the benefits to regular MISS activity are many, if you think running...
