Russell & Susan Moore, CF-L1’s
January 2, 2008 is the day I walked into Chris Majors’ office and changed my life! I had worked out all my life but at 43 I had gotten in a rut and weighed more than I ever had! My normal workouts weren’t doing it for me so I broke down and got a trainer. Between my trainer and Chris, we moved beyond the weight machines quickly. They asked if I wanted to try this new workout called CrossFit. I was game and fell in love with this new idea of fitness! A few months later our one person CF class added my wife, Susan Moore, so we had couples CrossFit for that summer. By October we started a 9:00 CrossFit class with 7 of us. Within a year we had an afternoon class also. Both met in the gymnasium, or upstairs in old NorthRidge Fitness or out back. The fever had set in! We decided to travel to CrossFit New England in Boston and earned our CF-L1! Soon after we finally got our own CF room and then in October 2012 we moved into our current awesome location! CrossFit NorthRidge has changed our lives through the friends we’ve made and fitness level we have achieved! Susan coaches competitive gymnastics teams and Russ works in the municipal bond business and both coach CrossFit for fun! We both love Alabama football and gymnastics and do mud runs and obstacle course races for fun.
