More than Just a Box by Derek Hill

College Hill CrossFit is more than just a box. It’s a box with an amazing community, and that community loves to give back. Newcomers might have a hard time understanding when CrossFitters talk about their community. A person who hasn’t experienced it yet, might think, “You’re talking about the people you work out with, right?” While it’s true that the community is those you work out with, it’s also so much more than that. The people you spend time with during a WOD are the people who become your friends and confidants. Our members come together from all walks of life, endure tough workouts together, cheer and encourage each other through struggles and amazing achievements. That fuses us together into this community of folks who care about each other.

The community at College Hill CrossFit is a tight knit group, but we go far beyond that. We take pride in making an impact on local and national initiatives. Owner, Pam Kontogiorgos has always believed that you should help others whenever you are able to and it shows in the generosity of College Hill CrossFit. In just over 3 years, College Hill has donated over $20,000 from events and sponsorships, provided thousands of pounds of food, and collected toys and served as a drop-off site for Toys for Tots.
