We believe every individual is unique and this gives us the opportunity to get to know you and determine the best path to help you reach your health and fitness goals. During your session we will show you the gym, review your goals and training history, and explain our different membership options. We will also take you through a short movement assessment and sample workout appropriate to your current fitness level so you can experience our training. We will then decide together which option will be best for you.
Your first month will include 5 one-on-one introductory sessions. Your coach will teach you all the movements and techniques seen in our regular classes. We will spend the time to make sure you can perform the exercises safely and correctly by taking you through various progressions and giving you lots of time to practice. Upon completion of the sessions you will have the confidence to move into our regular classes.
Our CrossFit classes are designed to have you feeling strong, lean and fit so you are ready to enjoy pursuits outside the gym. We focus on building a solid foundation of movement, strength and conditioning. We have members that choose to continue with personal training, move into our group classes, or do a combined membership of classes with personal training. We will work with you to decide what the best long-term option is for you based on your goals.

"I first stumbled onto 5 Valleys CrossFit over a year ago. My main motivation for showing up was to get in shape because I wanted to join Missoula County Search and Rescue as a volunteer. I had no previous training or certifications and was older than most that try to join MCSR. After several months of training both at 5 Valleys and with MCSAR they picked me to be a full member! And they basically chose me because they could tell I had become more and more fit and could be relied on to carry and lift things in the backcountry! This was a major goal for me to achieve, and it would never have been possible without the programming and coaching and motivation 5 Valleys CrossFit has provided me." Mick
"My husband started Crossfit before me and, noticing how much he looked forward to working out, I wanted to try it. I have to say that I felt overweight, scared and was really intimidated to workout with "cross fitters". I felt nervous, I was self-conscious about my weight, I mean could I really do this "Crossfit" thing? Umm, yes and I have never felt better! I am strong, confident and I am wearing shorts for the first time in years! This gym has such an amazing team atmosphere, the coaches are knowledgeable and the members are awesome! After never being able to stick to a fitness routine for more than a couple months I've been training at 5 Valleys for nearly 2 years and counting." Sasha
"Before joining 5 Valleys CrossFit, I went to the gym because I felt obligated to go, but definitely didn't love going. Now, I look forward to going, even on the hard days. I realized that I have a lot more self-control, discipline, and willpower than I thought I did. I've always known that I was strong mentally, but I think I subconsciously thought my mental strength had a limit, but 5 Valleys has shown me that my previously imagined limits are not valid or real. I've gotten stronger and stronger and being surrounded by awesome, hard-working people makes it fun!" Breeann
Congrats Sarah!! Sarah has been crushing it since she joined 5 Valleys CrossFit earlier this year. She has been super consistent and steadily gaining strength and fitness. Big thanks to Rattlesnake Market and Cafe for sponsoring our Member of the Month.
Here is what Sarah had to say:
“I am a 34 year old mom of a 12 year old boy. I work at both Ford and Toyota in the office. I enjoy being outside with my dogs hiking, swimming, going on bike rides, or hanging out at parks.
Before I joined 5 Valleys, I was not really doing anything for fitness. Just my daily routine, walking dogs, house work, wrangling a child, etc. I HATED working out!
I HATED working out! I always felt out of place and judged. I was also at a point physically where I could hardly do anything. My body had been broken from too many car wreaks, being a clutzy my whole life, and not taking care of myself in basically any way.
Those things combined made me feel like dying young would be better than continuing to live. But, I’m a stubborn, selfish person (so I have been told), and decided that i would put myself and my health first from now on and see if i could heal my body and mind.
The biggest change after joining was figuring out my schedule. I now get up around 4:15- 4:30am pretty much everyday as well as having to force myself to go to bed at a decent hour. Which has been a struggle. I have always been a night owl and still deal with insomnia most nights. However, I know that if I get up and go to the gym, I’ll have more energy for the day and be way less irritated with people.
I went from barley being able to walk and extremely overweight, to feeling like I can almost keep up with everyone in class most days. I finally have some strength back especially in single movement, low impact movements. As well as being able to actually do some compound movements. I still hate working out but only in a traditional gym setting. The “Box” has become my “me time” and the space I go to get my head on right, and find some positivity for the day.
Embrace the suck at first and do it! There will continue to be days that suck, but every day after the workout makes it totally worth it. You’ll feel better mentally and physically everyday and continuing into the future. Don’t worry about keeping up at first. No one here is competing with you. We are all competing against ourselves from yesterday. If your struggling, ask for help, from anyone! They will all give it and without judgement. We want you to succeed!
This is NOT a regular gym and that is why I come every morning that I possibly can. We start as a TEAM and we finish as a team. We support and cheer each other on. This place honestly has been a huge blessing in my life, and it will be in yours too.”
Keep up the awesome work Sarah!
