Chris Hoppe and his mom, Beth Hoppe, founded Progressive Fitness CrossFit in the summer of 2009. They opened their CrossFit Gym not only because they wanted to, but because they had to. Chris and Beth were both struggling with an Alcohol and Drug Addiction, as well as being very overweight. They were out of options and something had to change. The love and knowledge of the CrossFit community provided them with the change they were looking for, and they jumped in with both feet.
WESTSIDE IS THE BEST SIDE
Through countless hours working on nutrition and fitness, combined with the love and support of an amazing community, they found success. Together they have lost over 125lbs, gotten off all medications, climbed a combined 28-14,000ft peaks, and competed at both the CrossFit Regionals and CrossFit Games. But the best part of their journey is the community that was created along the way. Progressive Fitness CrossFit has become much more than just a gym or even a community, we are a family. The journey to health is hard, trust us, we know. But it’s so much easier with amazing people by your side and we’re with you every step of the way.
