Member Love

If you are looking for a gym to drop in at or one to call home, this is the gym for you. Hands down the best gym in the Pensacola area and could very well content with the best in the business. I have been to many CrossFit gyms in the past and this gym excels in every aspect of fitness that you can imagine. The owners, coaches, and members are all more than willing to lend a helping hand for their community. The wealth of knowledge that these coaches have toward CrossFit and exercise will more than exceed your expectations. If you want a gym that wholeheartedly believes in CrossFit and the movement that is being made around the world, then this is where you want to be. - Taylor P.

I absolutely love Mako! I was really overwhelmed by the idea of Crossfit, but the coaches really made me comfortable with the first two weeks of on-ramp. Once I got integrated into the classes, the coaches kept an eye on me and corrected my form and answered any questions I may have. Everyone at Mako is extremely friendly and supportive. The best thing about Mako (and Crossfit) is that they will adjust the workouts according to what you can or cannot do - I have really bad foot problems so I jump on a rower or a bike if the group goes for a run outside. I still get an amazing work out regardless! - Kim D.

Being military, we move very frequently so it can be difficult to establish a community in a short period of time. Thankfully, Mako welcomed us with open arms and made us feel like a part of things right away. Very qualified coaches, challenging programming, excellent facilities, amazing community. I'm thankful we found them! - Molly S.

After almost four years of training and being at the best CrossFit box I know of with of course the best coaches, MAKO ATHLETICS, I finally achieved my goal of qualifying for the 2017 Crossfit Games. Thanks to all that have trained with me and pushed me along the way. I love Crossfit. - Shannon "The Champ" A.

I LOVE CrossFit!!! I LOVE Mako! Our coaches are the best in the business and know how to get the best out of everyone. Their commitment to us is unwavering and I am certainly blessed and proud to be a part of this box and family! Happy 4th Anniversary, Mako! I am yours, always! - Bridget G.
