"I’ve changed. Physically, mentally and internally. Stronger, open minded and a healthy gut.
I’m grateful for Mako Athletics and the coaches that helped build me back up and overcome so many obstacles in my life.
I dropped all excuses and stepped into my highest self. With the help of detailed and well executed programming, educated and accountable nutrition coaching and a community that doesn’t let me quit - this has proven to be the best change of my life.
We’ve entered days of uncertainty, but Mako is still providing amazing resources to keep our determination high.
As dedicated athletes who are looking to better our lives, we can control our attitude and effort... but we have to be willing.
Utilize and participate because our coaches want nothing short of helping us reach our goals and stay committed.
Remain grateful for those standing in front of us, dedicated to changing our lives. Remember: success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally.
It comes from what you do consistently. Time to show up #makomonsters!🦈💙"

"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! I am yours, always!"
“I’ve been with Mako Athletics for about a year now and I can honestly say walking through those doors was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I had tried getting into shape on my own and while I had made a little progress the results were slow and I seemed to get injured very easily. I started out strictly doing personal training sessions with Kyle and had no intentions of trying the actual classes. I thought there was no way I would ever be fit enough to do those kind of workouts. The PT programing eased me into all of the olympic lifts, gymnastics and strength training and I soon joined the regular classes. I am now in the best shape of my life at 38 years old and I could not have done with out the amazing Mako staff and community. I would recommend Mako's personal training or classes to absolutely anyone regardless of their fitness level. They are not just another Crossfit box, they are the Top of the Fitness Food Chain.”
