"I started with Hunger in the Wild way back in 2017 when they were just getting started and operating down in the depths of Crossfit Heat... aka THE DUNGEON. They had bare essential equipment and facilities, but what made Hunger in the Wild so great, were the coaches and the members.

I am proud to see that what made Hunger in the Wild fundamentally great is still intact and getting better every day. I am forever grateful in finding Hunger in the Wild.

What can be said about Hunger in the Wild that hasn't already been said by so many others?

They have top notch state of the art facilities / incredibly knowledgeable and personable coaches and great members who make up this amazing community with a close family type of feeling. They will help you in every way possible to obtain your personal goals, whether that be strength / olympic lifting / body composition, or athletic performance goals.

All you have to do is put in the work and follow the path that they've laid out for you."

"Hunger in the Wild is built from the ground up to help you reach your goals. I have been a member here for 5+ years and my goals have shifted with the various seasons of life. From fat loss to strength gain and improvement in the Olympic lifts or even increasing cardiovascular capacity - whatever my goals have been, Kyle and his team of committed coaches have worked with me and focused my workouts in order to achieve those goals.

Since joining Hunger in the Wild I have lost over 40lbs of fat, gained more muscle than any other time in my life, and for the last 12 months I have maintained 10% body fat (which we track on a quarterly basis using the InBody Pro testing we do on a quarterly basis).

The training here has allowed me to crush my goals while completing: a half-marathon, my first ever Olympic lifting competition and drastically improving my overall health & fitness.

If you're looking to take your fitness to the next level, Hunger in the Wild is this spot.
